Subject: [Openstack-operators] Forum Brainstorming???
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
Welcome to the topic selection process for our first Forum in Boston. If
you've participated in an ops meetup before, this should seem pretty
comfortable. If not, note that this is not a classic conference track
with speakers and presentations. OpenStack community members (participants
in development teams, working groups, and other interested individuals)
discuss the topics they want to cover and get alignment on and we welcome
The Forum is for the entire community to come together; create a neutral
space rather than having separate ?ops? and ?dev? days. Boston marks the
start of the Queen's release cycle, where ideas and requirements will be
gathered. Users should aim to come armed with feedback from February's
Ocata release if at all possible. We aim to ensure the broadest coverage of
topics that will allow for multiple parts of the community getting together
to discuss key areas within our community/projects.
Examples of the types of discussions and some sessions that might fit
within each one:
Strategic, whole-of-community discussions, to think about the big
picture, including beyond just one release cycle and new technologies
eg Making OpenStack One Platform for containers/VMs/Bare Metal
session) the entire community congregates to share opinions on how to make
OpenStack achieve its integration engine goal
Cross-project sessions, in a similar vein to what has happened at
past design summits, but with increased emphasis on issues that are
relevant to all areas of the community
eg Rolling Upgrades at Scale (Cross-Project session) ? the Large
Deployments Team collaborates with Nova, Cinder and Keystone to tackle
issues that come up with rolling upgrades when there?s a large number of
Project-specific sessions, where developers can ask users specific
questions about their experience, users can provide feedback from the last
release and cross-community collaboration on the priorities, and ?blue sky?
ideas for the next release.
eg Neutron Pain Points (Project-Specific session) ? Co-organized
by neutron developers and users. Neutron developers bring some specific
questions they want answered, Neutron users bring feedback from the latest
release and ideas about the future.
There are two stages to the brainstorming:
1. Starting today, set up an etherpad with your group/team, or use one
on the list and start discussing ideas you'd like to talk about at the
Forum. Then, through +1s on etherpads and mailing list discussion, work out
which ones are the most needed - just like you did prior to the ops
2. Then, in a couple of weeks, we will open up a more formal web-based
tool for submission of abstracts that came out of the brainstorming on top.
We expect working groups may make their own etherpads, however the User
Committee offers a catch-all to get the widest feedback possible:
Feel free to use that, or make one for your group and add it to the list
