During the Liberty summit in Vancouver, the idea to maintain OpenStack
packages for Debian and Ubuntu on upstream infra sparked. As part of the
Openstack and Debian community we still want to push for it. Instead of
trying to directly go for the /openstack namespace, we currently want to
start with smaller baby steps, using Stackforge. Mostly, it is server
packages for Debian which we want to see maintained there. All of the
dependencies (including Oslo libraries and python-*client) will continue to
be maintained using git.debian.org, as a shared effort between Debian and
One centralized place at stackforge to maintain package build
manifests/specs for main OpenStack projects.
Stackforge already has gerrit where could be attached additional gates
for building and testing OpenStack packages for deb based Linux
All changes related to the ways of how one or another OpenStack project
should be installed would be represented or proposed to one place. So not
only famous package maintainers can work on build manifests for packages,
but also the entire community interested in packaging of OpenStack
projects. Also this place could become as main base for packages for all
deb based Linux distributions like Debian and Ubuntu.
Package build manifests could be reviewed or adjusted not only by
package maintainers, but also by python developers, that are writing
OpenStack code and that's could be very valuable due to possible changes in
configuration, paths and so on.
Here I propose list of OpenStack projects, it consists of about 25 of
projects which of course would be changed with time due to possible birth
of new projects .
