Notable Discussions – openstack-dev
Update on the API Reference and Guide Publishing process
Anne Gentle provided an update on this important effort – in short it’s going well, but more to be done. There are a few projects she specifically notes have some further work required, I believe this needs to be done within the project code base or websites themselves.
So if you’re involved in one of Astara, Ceilometer, Cinder, Cloudkitty, Congress, Designate, Glance, Heat, Magnum, Mistral, Monasca, Sahara, Senlin, Solum, Swift, Tacker or Trove, please take a look at Anne’s email and see if you’re able to do what is required.
OS-Capabilities Library – Continued
As mentioned last week, Jay Pipes penned a rather low key email announcing some work he’s done on creating a new os-capabilities Python library. The thread picked up a little this week with various positive comments, a question confirming its applicability across projects ( Yes ) and some design discussions.
The code is here , please get consider getting involved in this important endeavour.
Extra ATCs for Newton
Doug Hellman writes that it’s time to ensure we have all active technical contributors (ATCs) identified for Newton. As he explains “…Project teams should identify contributors who have had a significant impact this cycle but who would not qualify for ATC status using the regular process because they have not submitted a patch. Contributions might include, but aren’t limited to, bug triage, design work, and documentation — there is a lot of leeway in how teams define contribution for ATC status.”
The ATC list is approved by the TC on/around 25 August and in order to make the agenda for that meeting proposals need to be submitted by 16 August – later this week. Please take a look at Doug’s email for more details on this process if you believe you, or someone you know should be considered.
