Welcome to the new decade of 2020 where it's a mere five months to Ussuri
release! Ready? Set? GO!
Housekeeping Items Are You Headed to Brno?
We are gearing up for DevConf.CZ where we'll have our very own booth. While
we're not planning on running any demos, we'd love to see your demos
instead! If you've got something you'd like to show via video OR LIVE
because you're not afraid of ANYTHING, sign up
We're also looking for people to spend their precious free time answering
questions at the RDO booth. If you're attending, please consider spending
one or more of your free moments with us. Questions run the gamut from
"What's RDO?" to "I found a bug in Neutron and need help troubleshooting
it." Of course, you're not expected to know everything and you can always
keep IRC open to access the RDO Community for help! Plus, you get cool
stuff! If you show up for three or more shifts, we're going to hook you up
with an RDO hoodie.
Reach out to Rain Leander on IRC (leanderthal) or email (rain(a)redhat.com)
for more information.
RDO Changes What a Fabulous Test Day!
RDO test day was 19 and 20 December 2019
<http://rdoproject.org/testday/ussuri/milestone1/> and it went great! While
we didn't open any tickets, we had 26 participants and 869 messages. The
next RDO test day is for Milestone three on 16-17 April 2020.
Community News Community Meetings
Every Tuesday at 13:30 UTC, we have a weekly *TripleO CI community meeting*
on https://meet.google.com/bqx-xwht-wky with the agenda on
https://hackmd.io/IhMCTNMBSF6xtqiEd9Z0Kw. The TripleO CI meeting focuses on
a group of people focusing on Continuous Integration tooling and system who
would like to provide a comprehensive testing framework that is easily
reproducible for TripleO contributors. This framework should also be
consumable by other CI systems (OPNFV, RDO, vendor CI, etc.), so that
TripleO can be tested the same way everywhere. This is NOT a place for
TripleO usage questions, rather, check out the next meeting listed just
Every Tuesday at 14:00 UTC, immediately following the TripleO CI meeting is
the weekly *TripleO Community meeting* on the #TripleO channel on Freenode
IRC. The agenda for this meeting is posted each week in a public etherpad
<https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/tripleo-meeting-items>. This is for
addressing anything to do with TripleO, including usage, feature requests,
and bug reports.
Every Wednesday at 14:00 UTC, we have a weekly *RDO community meeting* on
the #RDO channel on Freenode IRC. The agenda for this meeting is posted
each week in a public etherpad
<https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/RDO-Meeting> and the minutes from the
meeting are posted on the RDO website
<https://www.rdoproject.org/community/community-meeting/>. If there's
something you'd like to see happen in RDO - a package that is missing, a
tool that you'd like to see included, or a change in how things are
governed - this is the best time and place to help make that happen.
Every Thursday at 15:00 UTC, there is a weekly *CentOS Cloud SIG meeting*
on the #centos-devel channel on Freenode IRC. The agenda for this meeting
is posted each week in a public etherpad
<https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/centos-cloud-sig> and the minutes from
the meeting are posted on the RDO website
<https://www.rdoproject.org/contribute/cloud-sig-meeting/>. This meeting
makes sense for people that are involved in packaging OpenStack for CentOS
and for people that are packaging OTHER cloud infra things (OpenNebula,
CloudStack, Euca, etc) for CentOS. “Alone we can do so little; together we
can do so much.” - Helen Keller
