Thanks for the clarification on the plans. In view of installed base
at CERN (now over 3,000 servers), we would be interested in el6
support for Juno and would like to discuss the details of how this
could be done in Paris. The components of particular interest for us
are Nova, Ceilometer and the client packages.
Could you describe the work involved so we can review skills and
availability on our side ?
There are a few aspects of supporting a distribution:
* Packaging of all of the core components of OpenStack, which means
keeping dependencies up to date, dealing with rebases from the stable
branch releases, backporting critical fixes from the stable branch
* Maintaining, monitoring and troubleshooting CI jobs
* Test day work, making sure that the distro works smoothly
* Bug triage for things specific to the platform (i.e. a bug on CentOS6
that is not present on CentOS7)
I'm sure others can weigh in with more details, but that's at least a
start. Folks like Alan Pevec, Wes Hayutin, Jakub Ruzicka can probably
assist with more details.
One thing is that if we are going to do an EL6 distro, it can't just
contain a subset of the components that you identified above (Nova,
How about an RDO BOF at the summit ?
A BOF sounds like a good idea.
I'm not sure how one goes about organizing a BOF though... Anyone else
know how this might work?
