[openstack-dev] Update on Zuul v3 Rollout plans for PTG week

0 votes

Heya everybody!

You may or may not be aware that we've been targeting a go-live for Zuul
v3 for Monday of the PTG. After our status meeting on the topic this
afternoon we have decided to hold-off and do a bit more work on the
migration itself while we're in Denver together.

Zuul v3 itself is in great shape, but it turns out a community of
thousands of developers has produced a LOT of job content over the last
7 years, and we want to hammer on the translation and migration plans a
bit more before we unleash it on everyone. If all goes well we're still
hoping to leave Denver having migrated all the things.

We have a session planned Monday afternoon to go over v3 and what it
means at 2:00PM in Vail. That session is still on, however, for those of
you who either can't be there or prefer reading, we've also put a bunch
of migration information into the Infra Manual:

https://docs.openstack.org/infra/manual/zuulv3.html

As we work over the first part of the week you may see Zuul running some
jobs on your patches and leaving results. If you do - don't freak out,
it's just us making sure things are working. We also may grab a few of
you to verify that migrated versions of your jobs are working properly.
Or you may not notice anything at all until the go-live happens.

See you in Denver!
Monty

tl;dr - We didn't roll v3 out at the PTG, current plan is 2017-09-25.

In case you didn't notice, we're still running v2.5. While Zuul v3
itself is in great shape, we're still getting the job migration script
solid to the point where we're comfortable the impact will be mimimal
for most folks.

Since we're doing the Gerrit upgrade today, the new plan is to do the v3
cutover next Monday, 2017-09-25.

We do not expect the cutover to take a long time - certainly not as long
as the Gerrit upgrade.

We also had some really good interactions with folks about new job
content at the PTG, so while we're not rolled out, the time was actually
very productive.

We have a session planned Monday afternoon to go over v3 and what it
means at 2:00PM in Vail. That session is still on, however, for those of
you who either can't be there or prefer reading, we've also put a bunch

Quick shout-out to everyone who came to the session. It was scheduled as
a 30 minute session and wound up lasting 2.5 hours because of all of the
EXCELLENT questions.

One that came up a few times that's worth bringing up here is:

"What about Third Party CI operators?"

Our STRONG recommendation is for the Third Party folks to hold off and
not attempt to upgrade immediately. As soon as we're done migrating
OpenStack we'll be focusing on fleshing out the documentation, and I'm
sure we'll find some new bugs we need to squash. We'd like to ensure
bugs have settled down, that there are good operational docs and at
least a solid Third Party Migration FAQ before Third Party folks upgrade.

We also want to have puppet-openstackci updated properly for people who
are using that.

Finally, we have written a migration script for OpenStack. It's MOSTLY
configurable and should be usable by Third Party folks - but as the
primary focus has been on OpenStack's transition, there are a few
hard-coded things and a few places where assumptions were likely made.
We'll want to work with our Third Party community on fixing any
Infra-specific issues in that script before we recommend a wide rollout.

(PS. Please do not look at the code in the migration script. It is some
of the ugliest and wonkiest code I've ever written and I wouldn't want
you all to think less of me)

As we work over the first part of the week you may see Zuul running some
jobs on your patches and leaving results. If you do - don't freak out,
it's just us making sure things are working. We also may grab a few of
you to verify that migrated versions of your jobs are working properly.
Or you may not notice anything at all until the go-live happens.

We may still do that this week, so the advice holds true. If you see
Zuul start to comment on patches in your project, don't freak out.
HOWEVER - if Zuul does leave a comment this week and the results are
different from what Jenkins leaves, it would be helpful to compare the
output and let us know if the new Zuul jobs are doing the wrong things.

The content will not be identical, as v3 handles several things
fundamentally differently. But if you have a job that thinks it's
testing devstack with magnum enabled and that is not happening, then
that's very important for us to figure out.

Thanks for your patience! It was great to talk to everyone we were able
to connect with at the PTG. We're looking forward to rolling this out
and getting a bunch of new tools in everyone's hands next week.

Thanks!
Monty
