We're solidly setting sail on the Ussuri river for the next six months -
soon we'll arrive at our first port of call, the RDO Test Day of Milestone
ONE! In the meantime, we're trying to avoid troubled waters as we shift the
RDO Community meeting time EARLIER by one whole hour. And initial
navigation has been mapped via last month's Project Teams Gathering - if
you didn't get a chance to attend, the reports are arriving on the
openstack-discuss list.
Housekeeping Items Want to Help Us Prep for RDO Ussuri Test Day Milestone

We are conducting an RDO test day on 19 and 20 December 2019

This will be coordinated through the *#rdo channel on Freenode*, via
http://rdoproject.org/testday/ussuri/milestone1/ and the
dev at lists.rdoproject.org <https://lists.rdoproject.org/mailman/listinfo/dev>
mailing list.

We'll be testing the first Ussuri milestone release
<https://releases.openstack.org/ussuri/schedule.html>. If you can do any
testing on your own ahead of time, that will help ensure that everyone
isn't encountering the same problems.

If you’re keen to help set up, mentor, or debrief, please reach out to
leanderthal on Freenode IRC #rdo and #tripleo.
RDO Changes RDO Community Meeting Shifts Times

After two weeks of discussion on the mailing list and within the weekly
meeting, RDO Community has shifted their weekly irc meeting time
<https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/RDO-Meeting> to one hour *EARLIER* making
it begins at 1400 UTC/ 1500 CET / 1000 EDT / 0730 IST as of Wednesday 05th
December 2019. Many thanks to everyone who collaborated to make this change!
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

Neutron Needs YOU!

Sławek Kapłoński, the Neutron PTL, recently reported that neutron-fwaas
neutron-bagpipe and neutron-bgpvpn
are lacking interested maintainers. The Neutron team will drop those
modules from future official OpenStack releases if nothing changes by the
ussuri-2 milestone, February 14. If you are using those features and would
like to step up to help, now is your chance!
What’s In A Name

We are looking for a name for the ‘V’ release of OpenStack, to follow the
Ussuri release. Learn more about it in this post by Sean McGinnis
