Thank you Mark for writing this up! If you are interested in new interop
programs, please comment on
In addition, we will also be discussing this during our weekly meeting on
Wednesday, 11:00 AM CST/ 16:00 UTC in #openstack-meeting-3. If you cannot
join us for the meeting at that time, find us in #openstack-interop

Thank you,

Hi Everyone,

Happy Friday! There have been a number of discussions (at the PTG, at
OpenStack Summit, in Interop WG and Board of Directors meetings, etc)
over the past several months about the possibility of creating new
interoperability programs in addition to the existing OpenStack Powered
program administered by the Interop Working Group (formerly the DefCore
Committee). In particular, lately there have been a lot of discussions
recently [1] about where to put tests associated with trademark programs
with respect to some existing TC guidance [2] and community goals for
Queens [3]. Although these potential new programs have been discussed in
a number of places, it¹s a little hard to keep tabs on where we¹re at
with them unless you¹re actively following the Interop WG. Given the
recent discussions on openstack-dev, I thought it might be useful to try
and brain dump our current thinking on what these new programs might look
like into a document somewhere that people could point at in discussions
rather than discussing abstracts and working off memories from prior
meetings. To that end, I took a first stab at it this week which you can
find here:

Needless to say this is just a draft to try to get some of the ideas out
of neurons and on to electrons, so please don¹t take it to be firm
consensus‹rather consider it a draft of what we¹re currently thinking and
an invitation to collaborate. I expect that other members of the Interop
Working Group will be leaving comments in Gerrit as we hash through this,
and we¹d love to have input from other folks in the community as well.
These programs potentially touch a lot of you (in fact, almost all of
you) in some way or another, so we¹re happy to hear your input as we work
on evolving the interop programs. Quite a lot has happened over the past
couple of years, so we hope this will help folks understand where we came
from and think about whether we want to make changes going forward.

By the way, for those of you who might find an HTML-rendered document
easier to read, click on the "gate-interop-docs-ubuntu-xenial² link in
the comments left by Jenkins and then on ³Extension Programs - Current
Direction². Thanks, and have a great weekend!


At Your Service,

Mark T. Voelker
