The OpenStack Board effort to define “what is core” for commercial use (aka DefCore). I have blogged extensively about this topic and rely on you to review that material because this post focuses on updates from recent activity.
First, Please Join Our Community DefCore Reviews on 7/16!
To support global access, there are TWO meetings (both will also be recorded):
- July 16, 8 am PDT / 1500 UTC
- July 16, 6 pm PDT / 0100 UTC July 17
Note: I’m presenting about DefCore at OSCON on 7/21 at 11:30!
We want community input! The Board is going discuss and, hopefully, approve the matrix at our next meeting on 7/22. After that, the Board will be focused on defining Designated Sections for Havana and Ice House (the TC is not owning that as previously expected).
The DefCore process is gaining momentum. We’ve reached the point where there are tangible (yet still non-binding) results to review. The Refstack efforts to collect community test results from running clouds is underway: the Core Matrix will be fed into Refstack to validate against the DefCore required capabilities.
Now is the time to make adjustments and corrections!
In the next few months, we’re going to be locking in more and more of the process as we get ready to make it part of the OpenStack by-laws (see bottom of minutes).
If you cannot make these meetings, we still want to hear from you! The most direct way to engage is via the DefCore mailing list but 1×1 email works too! Your input is import to us!
