[OpenStack Foundation] DefCore Update on Designated Sections, please disccuss/+1

Board Members,

Note: if you'd like a quick DefCore review, please read http://robhirschfeld.com/2014/08/12/patchwork-onion/

Last week, the DefCore committee had an open meeting to create the initial strawman Design Sections. This strawman is intended as the basis for discussion leading up to an official DefCore recommendation at the September Board meeting. We are planning to have open community discussion meetings for this in a few weeks after reviewing with the TC and other leaders.

Before we do that, we felt that the Board should have a chance to +1 and discuss the recommendations. The recommendations are based on 10 principles (in the post script)

RECOMMENDATIONS:

? Havana Nova is by default designated except scheduler, filter, drivers, API extensions and networking.

? Havana Swift has no designated code due to lack of consensus (see principles)

? Havana Keystone is not designated.

? Havana Glance designated sections are the API implementation code and domain model.

? Havana Cinder designated sections are the API implementation code

? Havana Neutron has no designated sections.

? Havana Heat is not a core capability, no position at this time.

? Havana Horizon is not a core capability, no position at this time.

? other projects do not are not core capabilities and are not reviewed at this time.

10 PRINCIPLES POST SCRIPT:
Should be DESIGNATED:
1. code provides the project external REST API, or
2. code is shared and provides common functionality for all options, or
3. code implements logic that is critical for cross-platform operation
Should NOT be DESIGNATED:
4. code interfaces to vendor-specific functions, or
5. project design explicitly intended this section to be replaceable, or
6. code extends the project external REST API in a new or different way, or
7. code is being deprecated
8. UNdesignated by Default
? Unless code is designated, it is assumed to be undesignated.
? This aligns with the Apache license.
? We have a preference for smaller core.
9. Designated by Consensus
? If the community cannot reach a consensus about designation then it is considered undesignated.
? Time to reach consensus will be short: days, not months
? Except obvious trolling, this prevents endless wrangling.
? If there's a difference of opinion then the safe choice is undesignated.
10. Designated is Guidance
? Loose descriptions of designated sections are acceptable.
? The goal is guidance on where we want upstream contributions not a code inspection police state.
? Guidance will be revised per release as part of the DefCore process.

As regards ?Havana Keystone is not designated?, does this mean that I
can have an OpenStack? cloud without having a Keystone compatible API ?

I think that would be a cloud "powered by OpenStack?".

That would be correct for the current Havana DefCore capabilities.

If it is just the requirement for API compatibility, should this not be
that it has no designated code.

If it is actually not required, can the other components function fully
without Keystone ? I would hope to be able to point a standard CLI such
as nova at an OpenStack? cloud and for it to work.

This may reflect that some clouds have alternative identity
implementations but I am not aware if they are API compatible yet.

I think I agree with Tim -- keystone is a pretty critical component for
basic interoperability of OpenStack clouds. API compatibility sounds
like a bare minimum.

This is clearly a big gap. I originally missed it because of the inclusion of the ?compute-auth? capability. But, I now see that is just validating that Compute properly uses auth information. The real issue is that there was no basic user auth capabilities identified during the development of the Havana criteria. I did some digging to try and understand why this is the case. As I retraced the steps that evolved, I think I understand what happened.

The capabilities were derived directly from a catalog of tests under the ?api? directory within tempest. If you look at the identity folder, it is all administrative capabilities that are tested - none of which would have made the cut for consideration. Looking only at that part of the project, you would be left wondering if we don?t actually test basic api functionality. Of course, we don?t completely miss testing basic identity functions. But, the method used to accomplish this is by testing the identity client in the ?services? folder within tempest - not with having a pure API level test.

I think the question is how to do move to rectify this in future version of capability identification and scoring. Do we use client interface tests as a proxy for API tests? In other words, should we require that a client library works against an OpenStack-powered cloud? or do we force the work to develop pure API level tests within the projects to serve as the validation for DefCore.

Perhaps this was discussed early on in the process, I don?t recall. But, we should make sure we put some clarity around it.

We should also proactively look at making Keystone code designated in
the future. I understand that some OpenStack companies do not run
Keystone -- if that's due to technical limitations, it would be good to
have a full account of those, so that we can make sure filling those
gaps in baked into Keystone future roadmap.

I think there is good progress there. Rackspace, for instance, plans to move to running Keystone code in production for the public cloud as the way to support Keystone V3. The teams have been engaging to work through scaling concerns, etc. Hopefully that is a sign that things are moving in the right direction.

Cheers,

[OpenStack Foundation] Designated Sections Discussion w/ DefCore & TC on Thursday @ 11am PT

Board,

At the last meeting, there was interest in being part of the dialog about Designated Sections. We are still on track to vote on this at the next board meeting (draft posted on https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/DefCoreLighthouse.5)

The next opportunity for public discussion (with the TC) is this Thursday @ 11 am. Details: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/DefCoreLighthouse.6

We have NOT scheduled a dedicated board session on this. I suggest considering this based on the Thursday discussion.

[OpenStack Foundation] Listing director "class" on our web site

Hi!

Would it be possible to get the type of director for each board
position listed on
http://www.openstack.org/foundation/board-of-directors/ ? I think it
would be good for it to be obvious who is an individual director for
example.

Thanks,
Michael

Michael,

The list exists here: http://www.openstack.org/blog/tag/elections/

I believe this was discussed at some point and, since we are all supposed to represent OpenStack not our companies, was not included. I'm not taking a position, just trying to recall the discussion.

[OpenStack Foundation] agenda topic request for next board meeting

Alan,

Could we talk about the mid-cycle meetups at the next board meeting? I'm getting feedback about meeting sprawl and it's worth discussing if we should be asking the Foundation to formalize and coordinate the mid-cycle design meetings.

We definitely need to stay well connected on this topic.

The most productive outcome from the public discussions I've seen was
the realization that the increased push for mid-cycle meet-ups is making
it increasingly clear that the design summit is no longer fully
achieving its intended purpose (getting alignment around the release).
If the mid-cycles were more focused on specific work and not strategic
alignment, it wouldn't be as critical that everyone is able to attend.

There's a thread on Thierry's proposal for an evolutionary change to the
design summit to address some of this here:

http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2014-August/044169.html

and note that the thread crossed into September, as well:

[OpenStack Foundation] Individual Member notice email

I wanted to let everyone know that the following notice has gone out to about 3000 Individual Members who have not voted in either of the Board elections in the last 24 months. Members must vote in at least half of the elections during the preceding 24 month period, which in this case means they needed to vote in either the January 2013 election, the January 2014 election, or both to maintain membership. (See: http://www.openstack.org/legal/individual-member-policy/ )

As you?ll see, these Foundation Members have 30 days to request to remain a Foundation Member, which we are granting.

Notice email:


Dear Foundation Member,

According to our records, you haven't voted in at least half of the Foundation elections in the past 2 years. Per the bylaws, your membership will be suspended effective 30 days from now, on October 10. This email serves as notice.

If you wish to remain a Member of the OpenStack Foundation you have until October 10 to make that request to the Secretary by visiting this page: [[LINK]].

If you take no action, we will automatically change your account status from "Foundation Member" to "Community Member". As a "Community Member" you can continue to engage in many activities on OpenStack.org including submitting talks for Summits. However, you will not have all of the rights and responsibilities of being a full Foundation Member, including voting in future Board of Directors elections.

If you wish to remain a Foundation Member, you have until October 10 to request that the Secretary reinstate your account. You also have the option to delete your account entirely. Either option may be selected on this page prior to the deadline: [[LINK]]

[OpenStack Foundation] Platinum Membership Opening

Hi everyone,

When the Foundation was launched, we randomly selected four of the eight Platinum Members to be categorized as Class A Platinum Members and the other four to be in Class B. Normally the Platinum Member term is three years, but for the initial term, Class A members have a slightly shorter term that ends December 31, 2014 per the Platinum Member Agreement (http://www.openstack.org/legal/platinum-member-policy/). Nebula was a Class A Platinum Member who has decided not to renew their membership beyond this year, although they may apply for Gold Membership starting in 2015.

This will result in an opening for Platinum Membership beginning January 1, 2015. The link referenced above covers the process for New Platinum Members to be elected in broad terms in Section 4. I?d like to have a discussion at the Board meeting on Thursday to determine how to handle new Platinum Member applications and will provide more detail after the meeting. One possible option is to expand the Gold Member Committee to cover Platinum Member openings as well. In reviewing the criteria, it doesn?t look like there is a lot that is extremely specific to the Gold Member class.

Thanks,

Jonathan

As mentioned in the notes from the recent Board meeting, the Gold Member Committee, chaired by Simon Anderson, was expanded to include both Gold and Platinum Member candidates. The expanded committee is currently working with a number of interested companies to help them prepare to present at the November Board Meeting.

The deadline for any companies who may be interested in applying for Platinum or Gold Membership to provide their official signed agreements and application is October 17th. Feel free to reach out to me if your organization is interested or if you have any questions. Thanks,

Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] Supporting materials from board meetings

Hi Alan

(For the background of people not on the board - in advance of each
meeting, Alan does an excellent job of getting board members to send
their supporting materials like papers and slide decks so that board
members can be fully prepared for the meeting.)

Our transparency policy doesn't address the topic of this sort of
material:

http://www.openstack.org/legal/transparency-policy/

But I think the spirit of it would suggest that the materials should be
published after the meeting - perhaps you could publish them, or perhaps
Jonathan could include them in his summary?

The material is hugely useful to board members, but I think also hugely
useful to the wider membership. And since the material is discussed and
referenced in the open board meetings, it's already public information.

Thanks,
Mark.

Since much of the material is developed within the working groups it's already publicly available, but if one is not part of the work effort the reports may take effort to find. (For example Jonathan posted to the Foundation list, topics DefCore, mid-cycle meetups, bylaws were created as part of the DefCore workgroup materials. )

I'll let those preparing reports for the next meeting know so that get their approval. I don't want to surprise anyone. We also need to make sure that the people preparing the reports know so that they can include explanatory material or references as needed.

As you noted, we can't post them until Jonathan posts the summary. And as I am sure is understood, I won't post any materials that would be intended for the Executive sessions and are of sensitive nature.

Also something to think about, we need to ensure that people reading the reports understand that the reports do not represent the results of the board meeting nor opinions or decisions of the board. I am a bit concerned that by posting with the summary we could create such confusion.

[OpenStack Foundation] Summit session video license

Hi,

The OpenStack training-guides team is planning to use the videos recorded
at the OpenStack summits for the content in the Audio-Video subteam
project. But the summit videos uploaded are under the 'Standard Youtube
License' and hence cannot be re-used. Youtube provides for a different type
of license called 'Creative Commons' which allows anyone to edit and re-use
the videos. If we have the summit videos put under this license it would be
very useful and the recorded content can be used in many different ways. We
wanted to know if the foundation can help us to bring about this change in
the existing videos and the future video recording.

Thanks,
Sayali.

Hi Sayali,

I had a quick exchange with Jonathan and he highlighted that having a
'blank' license that allows modifications to the videos may not be
appropriate. Some of the recordings contain opinions and other things
that the speakers may not want to be taken off context and modified to
be re-used.

I agree with Jonathan, and of all the Creative Commons licenses, I
would suggest to use only the least permissive ones (like CC-BY-ND)
which would not solve your problem.

To address the specific issue of the training guides, I would suggest
you to build a list of the videos you'd like to reuse. Once there is a
list, maybe the training manuals team can ask the speakers directly to
authorize the Foundation to change the license so that the content can
be modified (if needed) to be reused in the manuals.

[OpenStack Foundation] September 18, 2014 Board Meeting Summary

Hello everyone,

The OpenStack Foundation Board of Directors held a telephone meeting this past Thursday. The agenda was posted on the wiki: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/18Sept2014BoardMeeting

To begin, the Board approved the minutes of the previous meeting. Those minutes will be posted on the wiki soon. The Board welcomed Mark McClain, who is now the appointed Gold Director for Yahoo! following Sean Roberts' departure. Sean has been a very involved Board member since the formation of the Foundation and chaired the Finance Committee for the last two years, and I want to thank him for his help all along the way. While he has given up his Board seat for now, he still continues to be active in the community.

Rob Hirschfeld asked that we touch on the topic of mid-cycle meet ups and requested that the Foundation staff work with the PTLs and contributors to see if there are any actions we should take to help coordinate and make participation in these events easier. If any of you have feedback on this point, we?d love to hear it (on the list or directly to me if you?d prefer).

Next, we moved on to several committee reports. I discussed the opening for Platinum membership, and the Board voted to expand the scope of the Gold Membership Committee to cover new Platinum Member applicants as well. This committee, which is chaired by Simon Anderson, will begin working with interested organizations to present their applications for Platinum membership at the upcoming Board meeting. If your organization is interested in Platinum membership, please contact me directly. The newly scoped Gold and Platinum Member Committee also added several new members, including Alex Freedland, Todd Moore, John Zannos, Chris Kemp and Tristan Goode.

The Board also voted to approve Alex Freedland as Chairperson of the Finance Committee. Several new members were added to the Finance Committee as well, including Mark McLoughlin, Mark McClain and John Zannos.

After this, there followed a lengthy update and discussion covering the DefCore process. The Board requested that the DefCore Committee work with the Foundation Staff and trademark counsel to come back with some additional concrete examples and proposals of commercial trademark license use based on the existing work of the DefCore committee as well as feedback from various community discussions that indicated multiple usage marks (e.g. compute or storage specific) may be desired sooner than previously anticipated.

This discussion consumed the remainder of the time scheduled for the call, and the Board was unable to cover the Bylaws discussion or executive session topics. The next scheduled Board meeting is November 2, prior to the Paris Summit, however, in order to make progress on DefCore and the other topics that were not discussed, Alan will try to schedule an additional Board meeting in October. If that meeting is scheduled, we?ll make sure to announce the date and send the details out to the Foundation list.

Thanks to all of you who were able to join,

Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] It's been a pleasure

Ladies and Gents,

It has been an extraordinary pleasure working with all of you over the past 4+ years. As some of you may have seen, I?m moving ?up the stack?, and have accepted a position at Pivotal as Field CTO for Cloud Foundry.

Christopher MacGown will be stepping into the Piston Director seat.

I look forward to continuing to work with all of you, now from the ?User? side.

[OpenStack Foundation] Resigning as Individual Director

Hi there

With Brian Stevens recent departure with Red Hat, our Platinum Director
board seat is now vacant. We have decided that I should represent Red
Hat on the board.

This implies that I must resign as Individual Director. Personally, this
is a difficult decision for me, because I've always greatly valued being
an independent voice representing the individual members. I'm also
conscious that resigning now is going to cause some churn quite late in
the year.

The reasoning goes like this - we think I can best represent Red Hat on
the board, we don't think it's ideal to leave a Platinum Director seat
vacant for any length of time, and we'd prefer to avoid the churn of
appointing a temporary Red Hat representative while I serve the
remainder of my term as Individual Director.

Jonathan has been working to figure out the process which should follow
an Individual Director resignation. I'll let him share details on that.

My sincere apologies if this disappoints anyone. I have been honored to
serve as Individual Director, and I'm very grateful to everyone who
voted for me.

Thanks!

Mark.

Either way we will all still benefit from your deep technical, community
and governance thinking Mark. Plus this will open up an opportunity for a
another strong director representing Individual members, which is a +2!

Best,
Simon

I, for one, think the idea of having you in the Platinum seat as someone
who has the community support to be elected directly is pretty exciting
actually. I also have no doubt that your voice will remain your voice.

I'll miss having you in the Individual ranks - but am glad you'll still
be with us.

[OpenStack Foundation] openstack swift PUT object question

Hi.
when i put a object(1K) to swift cluster, the performance is so bad, QPS only 16. and i found the function: "finalizeput" in file Diskfile.py cost too much time .
mainly caused by the fsync() inside finalizeput operation, the fsync() will cost 30ms when write 1KB data to disk . as a result the PUT performance is bad.

how can tuning the performance ? and why call fsync() function?

                                                                          thanks

Directors and Community members wishing to attend the November 2 OpenStack Board meeting and/or the joint TC/Board meeting will need to follow these instructions in order to gain access to the room.

To gain access please follow these steps:
1. Check-in at the circular Registration Information desk. This circular desk is located on Level 0 of the Palais in the middle of the Summit registration area.
2.a Directors and TC members: At the Registration Information Desk, pick up your pre-printed Summit name badges and receive a grey wristband to wear.
2.b Members attending the meeting who are NOT Board or TC members, check-in at the Registration Information Desk. You will be asked to write your name on the provided attendee list. You will receive a grey wristband. Summit registration will officially open at 2pm on Sunday. At 2pm you may pick up your Summit name badges just like the rest of the Summit attendee.
3. The grey wristband will grant you access up the escalator to the Salle Maillot room on Level 2. There will be security folks located at the escalators checking for wristbands.
4. Access is restricted to the Salle Mallot room and the bathrooms located closest to that area on Level 2. There will be security folks there to make sure that no one wanders around into the other Summit spaces.

These instructions have been added to the agenda wiki for both meetings.

See you there,

  • The new Platinum Member Selection Procedure submitted for review by the Membership Committee. The Board expects to hear several presentations from prospective Platinum and Gold Members at the next meeting happening November 2.

  • A new framework proposed by the DefCore Committee and Foundation Staff that includes both platform and component level commercial trademark licensing programs. The framework allows the DefCore committee to propose new component level programs in the future, as well as update the technical requirements (core capabilities and designated sections) with each new version of the software. Initial programs will include Platform, Object Storage and a new Compute program. Under the new framework, the DefCore Committee plans to present the Havana Advisory Designated Sections for approval at the next meeting.

Our next Board meeting will happen in Paris, Sunday, November 2, starting at 9 am local time. It will be immediately followed by a joint Board / Technical Committee meeting starting at 2 pm. Any community members wishing to attend the meeting in person should check in at the OpenStack Summit Registration Information Desk at Palais des Congr?s, in order to pick up a wristband to access the room in Level 2.

Thanks,
Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] Board Meeting Summary - Nov 2

Hi everyone,

On Sunday, the Board of Directors gathered to meet in person before the start of the Paris Summit. We were fortunate to have all Board members attend, as well as a few dozen observers. We had a large agenda, but spent the majority of time hearing Platinum and Gold Member presentations before we cut the agenda short to convene the joint Board / TC meeting.

To start the meeting, the Board approved minutes from the Oct 20 Board meeting, and I gave an update on behalf of the Foundation Staff. We then heard presentations from five companies who applied to fill the open Platinum Member position: Cisco, EMC, Ericsson, Huawei and Intel. All companies who applied are strong candidates and contributors to the community, and the Board ultimately elected Intel as the newest Platinum Member. Two companies: Nebula and Symantec, applied to be Gold Members, but that decision was deferred until a later Board meeting (expected to take place via phone in December). We were unable to tackle any additional agenda items or committee updates because we ran over time.

There's a great energy as the community gathered in Paris this week, and I have enjoyed seeing so many of you who were able to attend the Summit.

Thanks,
Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] OpenStack High 5 Board Wrapup November 6, 2014 - No meeting held

The OpenStack Board High 5 meeting did not achieve quorum, and with no Directors voicing a need for the meeting, no official meeting was called to order.

A big thank you from the Directors to the Foundation staff and events team for facilitating the successful Paris Summit.

I just wanted to send a note of appreciation to all of those involved with
planning the summit and those whom invest their time in the board. This was

[OpenStack Foundation] Proposed bylaws amendments posted on the wiki; feedback wanted by December 2

Foundation Mailing List Subscribers,

As you are aware from previous postings and various committee meetings, the Board is considering three potential changes to the OpenStack Foundation bylaws, as a result of the work during the Defcore Committee's activities (http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/defcore-committee)

We would like your additional feedback on the latest draft, prior to the next Board meeting on December 2. If the proposed amendments are passed at the Board meeting, they will each be on the ballot in the upcoming election January 12th-16th 2015. We do want to hear from you.

An explanation of the three amendments and the proposed language is available on the wiki:
https://wiki.openstack.org/w/index.php?title=Governance/Foundation/2014ProposedBylawsAmendment

Please provide feedback here on the Foundation mailing list. (foundation at lists.openstack.org)

Note that the Technical Committee (TC) has been discussing the changes as well and an archive is available here:
http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-tc/2014-November/000871.html

Regards,
AlanClark

Hi Joe,

I?ve copied in your comment from the other thread so people on this thread can see what you said.

  • When removing appendix 8, you are removing the explicit guarantee
    that the OpenStack Word Mark is shared with the community. While I
    fully support making it easier to adjust the commercial trademark
    usage, I am not very keen on making it easier to change the guarantee
    that the non-commercial trademark usage.

"We share the OpenStack Word Mark with the community for the purposes of open source
discussion, development and support of the OpenStack project and technology. We understand
that such use is mostly for non-commercial purposes and therefore we will allow the use of the
OpenStack Word Mark, without a license, when used in a ?referential? phrase only to describe
the OpenStack Project or the OpenStack code base, provided you comply with the following
requirements:"

A couple of thoughts:

First, the updates as proposed do not remove the explicit guarantee. There are no changes to the trademark policy as of yet, so that guarantee remains in place. Going forward, the Board could update the policy and could even remove it, but it would really undermine the purpose of the Foundation and I don?t see that happening.

I understand your concern about making these kinds of changes easier and have shared it during several of the DefCore discussions in the last year. Even going back to the initial drafting phase in 2012, I was a big proponent of making the trademark policy subject to the super high bar amendment requirement to protect this right.

In practice however, over the last two years, I have seen that having an operational document like the trademark policy be so rigidly defined gets in the way of administering it as the community and ecosystem continues to grow and change really rapidly. Essentially this change moves the authority for as extensive operational legal document from the individual membership of 17,000+ to the Board?the representative governance body for the Foundation.

Over these two years, I?ve also outgrown most of my concern about the worst case scenario playing out if the trademark policy is not subject to that high bar amendment requirement. The Board has a strong understanding of how important it is to maintain the health of the community and has worked hard to gather a lot of community feedback (for things like DefCore for instance). To be honest, if we got to the point where we had a Board that was so far removed from the needs of the community that they wanted to remove the community?s right to use the logo, we?d probably be facing even bigger problems than trademark usage. Personally, as long as I have a part in the Foundation, I would never support a move to make a policy change like that.

Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] December Board Meetings Summary

Hello everyone,

Coming out of the Board meeting in Paris, the OpenStack Foundation Board of Directors had several items to finish up before the end of the year. Over the last couple of weeks, the Board held a series of productive phone conference meetings.

The Board approved a 2015 budget for the Foundation with increased funding for summits, continuing to build out community systems, and budget for hiring several new positions on the engineering, community management and marketing teams.

The proposed bylaws changes related to the ongoing core definition efforts were approved as previously posted and discussed on this list: http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/foundation/2014-November/001785.html

These changes will appear for approval by the Individual Membership on the 2015 Individual Member Election ballot. We will need a strong turnout of voters to meet our quorum threshold for approving amendments like these, so please help us encourage participation in the upcoming election. More details on the election can be found online: http://www.openstack.org/election/2015-individual-director-election/

Also, the Board approved the DefCore designated sections for the Havana release. This completes the definition of the Havana DefCore specification and the DefCore committee will be moving on to the next round of capabilities and designated sections for follow on releases.

Finally, last week the Board of Directors held two executive session meetings to wrap up the Gold Member application reviews from the meeting during the Paris Summit. Both Nebula and Symantec were approved to become Gold Members of the Foundation in 2015.

December ended up being a very busy month, and I want to thank all the Board and other community members who participated in these meetings to help us finish up this important Foundation business before year end.

Jonathan

Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] OpenStack Individual Members: A special reminder to vote on the proposed bylaw changes

OpenStack Individual Members we need your help - Please Vote!

Included on the upcoming individual elections ballot is set of proposed bylaw changes. To be enacted, these changes require approval by the individual members. At least 25% of the Individual Members must participate in this election in order for the vote to take effect which is why we are reaching out to you. The election will start Monday January 12, 2015 and run thru Friday January 16, 2015.

The unprecedented growth, community size and active nature of the OpenStack community have precipitated the need for OpenStack Bylaw updates. The updates will enable our community to adapt to our continued rapid growth, change and diversity, while reflecting our success and market leadership. Although the proposed changes only effect a small set of verbiage in the bylaws, the changes eliminate some of the hard coded values and naive initial assumptions that found their way into the bylaws when they were initially created in 2013. Those initial assumptions did not anticipate that by 2015 we would have such a large, active community of over 17,000 individual members, over 430 corporate members, and a large diverse set of OpenStack based products and services.

Through many months of community iterative discussion and debate, the DefCore team and board have unanimously accepted a set of changes that are now placed before you for your approval. The changes replace the original hard coded "core" definition with a process for determining the software elements required for use of the OpenStack commercial trademark.

The key thing for me is where to place the effort. I am not convinced that

From the non-voters, are there significant shares within companies where a

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the help promoting this election so far. We have 13,490 eligible
voters, so our 25% quorum line is 3,373. We?ve had a little over 900 voters
complete their ballots in the first day. Good progress, but we still have a
long way to go. We?re continuing to send reminder emails to the voters who
have not yet completed their ballots through the rest of the week and
appreciate continued support from all of you.

Subject: Re: [Gold Members] [Foundation Board] Election is open

We?re at about 1,560 voters in the director election (this puts us over
our 10%
quorum requirement for this election) and about 1,950 on the bylaws
amendment
(where we need 25%). Also, to clarify some a statement that was made
earlier this
week, we need at least 25% (~3,373) to vote to meet quorum on the Bylaws
and a
majority of however many end up voting to say ?Yes? for approval of them.

The companies with the largest concentration of voters (Cisco, Dell, HP,
IBM, Intel,
Mirantis, Rackspace, Red Hat, Symantec and VMware) actually have a higher
than
average participation percentage already, but continuing to encourage them
to vote
is always welcome. The last email reminder we sent out had a subject line
of
"Please Vote Now in the OpenStack Foundation Election? if you want to give
them
something to look for in their inbox.

We?re also continuing to email the non-voters directly and will keep
ramping it
through the last 2 days.

Thanks everyone for the help in pushing this.

Stef, Thierry

A suggestion: Could we set the IRC topic, at end of mtgs (aka header) on the appropriate channels to "Get out and vote today!"

Seems like meeting, meeting-alt, community, dev would be great targets.

I'll be happy if people start complaining that we are spamming them about voting :-)

[OpenStack Foundation] Have any members been "retired"?

Hi,

Given the "Get out the vote" effort, it seems to me like there are a lot
of people who signed up for membership who are not active (sure, there
will be some people who join, are active in the project, and just have
no interest in voting, but it seems more likely that of the 80% who
have mot voted, most are just not involved at all).

There was a rule in the by-laws to sunset membership for people who had
not voted in (if memory serves) the 2 previous elections.

Has this rule been put into effect? It seems like we would have less
trouble meeting the quorum if we thinned the membership down to people
who are voting in the elections.

This may already have been done - I'm getting old, and my memory isn't
what it used to be, but I don't remember seeing a notice of it.

Thanks,
Dave.

There might also people that registered with their company address and
have moved on. So, emails will not reach them.

[OpenStack Foundation] Elections: Could we set the IRC topic?.

That's actually a great point. Could the order of voting be switched so page one shows the bylaws instead of candidates?

At this point, I think we have a good shot of getting across the quorum line given
our pace over the last 24 hours. The most effective mechanism has been direct
emails to the remaining eligible voters, and at this point, I don?t think it?s
necessary to spam those channels (like IRC) that have probably had a high voting
ratio already among their audience.

Another reminder email will be going out shortly and we?ll provide an update
later today on the progress.

We have an IRC bot we use for temporarily modifying channel topics and
making in-channel announcements, though it's not really intended to be
used to alter topics for more than a few hours (susceptible to
connectivity issues and netsplits which can cause a loss of state and
result in topics getting "stuck" with the temporary text). As
mentioned in other replies, channel topics while persistent are
actually not that noticeable in most IRC clients--abusing that bot to
do a few brief election reminder announcements in channels might reach
more people. I'm trying to get some consensus from our other
infrastructure admins on this possibility since people can be a little
touchy about what they may see as unnecessary spam in IRC.

Seems like meeting, meeting-alt, community, dev would be great
targets.

Our statusbot currently sits in ~60 OpenStack-related channels:

It's a distinct possibility.

[OpenStack Foundation] 2015 Individual Director Election results

Hello everyone,

The 2015 election of Individual Directors has closed. The raw results are available at the following link:

https://www.bigpulse.com/pollresults?code=4465BagptIqcEjm73VjmEpTk

The full list of 2015 Board Directors is included in alphabetical order below.

The Director Diversity requirement in the Bylaws, which limits the number of Board members to 2 per company, came into effect this election. As you can see from the raw results linked above, two candidates who finished in the top 8, Monty Taylor and Kyle Mestery, work for the same company (HP). Since Eileen Evans of HP is already on the board as a Platinum Member appointee, only one Individual Member from HP can sit on the Board as an Individual Director. With a higher number of votes, Monty Taylor will be seated on the 2015 Board. This also means Rob Hirschfeld will be seated as the candidate with the next highest number of votes who would not create a Director Diversity violation per 4.17 (c) in the Bylaws.

The elected and appointed directors will be seated at the first Board meeting of the year at 12:00pm PST on January 28th: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/28Jan2015BoardMeeting

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Individual Director election and congratulations to our new and returning directors. On a personal note, it was great to see so such a strong list of candidates and such enthusiasm around the Individual Director elections. There are a limited number of Board seats, but there are numerous ways to get involved and show leadership in the community, whether it's through contributions or working groups or speaking opportunities. This is going to be an important year for OpenStack, and I look forward to working with all of you.

Another election, another opportunity for amateur number-crunching ;)

One interesting metric to consider is the average weighting per voter
that each candidate achieved, and the extent to which this deviates
from the norm.

The average weighting for all candidates was 2.52, with ? = 0.67.

So we could assign an outlier score to each candidate's mean weighting,
based on the number of standard deviations it deviates from the mean:

Candidate | mean weight | z-score
==========================================
Tim Bell | 2.52 | 0.00
Monty Taylor | 2.59 | 0.10
Alex Freedland | 4.03 | 2.27
Egle Sigler | 2.92 | 0.60
Russell Bryant | 2.40 | -0.17
Vishvananda Ishaya | 2.13 | -0.59
Kyle Mestery | 2.23 | -0.43
Kavit Munshi | 3.92 | 2.11
Rob Hirschfeld | 2.06 | -0.70


Adrian Otto | 2.44 | -0.12
Shane Wang | 4.09 | 2.36
Mark McClain | 1.86 | -0.99
Randy Bias | 2.32 | -0.29
Jesse Proudman | 2.30 | -0.32
John Griffith | 2.09 | -0.65
Richard Fontana | 1.96 | -0.84
David Lyle | 1.98 | -0.81
Kenneth Hui | 2.20 | -0.47
Edgar Magana | 2.09 | -0.65
Shake Chen | 3.61 | 1.64
Haiying Wang | 2.66 | 0.22
Peter Pouliot | 2.47 | -0.07
Arkady Kanevsky | 3.02 | 0.76
Andrew Mitry | 2.30 | -0.33
Kyle MacDonald | 1.95 | -0.85
Sean Winn | 2.05 | -0.71
Adam Lawson | 1.81 | -1.06

A positive (negative) value in the third column is a measure of a
candidate's ability to attract disproportionately higher weightings
from fewer individual voters (versus a lower weighting from more
individual voters).

Interestingly, the most successful candidate is also bang on average
in this respect.

In any case, congrats to all!

Cheers,
Eoghan

[OpenStack Foundation] Bylaws amendments approved

Hi everyone,

The recent election included 3 amendments to our Bylaws that needed to be voted on by the Individual Members of the Foundation. There are more details about the amendments on the wiki: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/2014ProposedBylawsAmendment

All 3 amendments were approved in the election and we successfully reached the 25% quorum of eligible voters needed to make the vote valid. Full results are available on the 2015 election results page: https://www.bigpulse.com/pollresults?code=4465BagptIqcEjm73VjmEpTk

Thank you very much to everyone for the strong participation that enabled us to move these important changes forward.

[OpenStack Foundation] [Openstack Foundation] [tc] Take back the naming process

Monty Taylor wrote:

You'll notice that I did say in my suggestion that ANYONE should be able
to propose a name - I believe that would include non-dev people. Since
the people in question are marketing people, I would imagine that if any
of them feel strongly about a name, that it should be trivial for them
to make their case in a persuasive way.

The proposal as it stands (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/150604/4)
currently excludes all non-ATCs from voting, though. The wider
"community" was included in previous iterations of the naming process,
so this very much feels like a TC power grab.

I'm not willing to cede that choosing the name is by definition a
marketing activity - and in fact the sense that such a position was
developing is precisely why I think it's time to get this sorted. I
think the dev community feels quite a bit of ownership on this topic and
I would like to keep it that way.

It's not by definition a technical activity either, so we are walking a
thin line. Like I commented on the review: I think the TC can retain
ownership of this process and keep the last bits of fun that were still
in it[1], as long as we find a way to keep non-ATCs in the naming
process, and take into account the problematic names raised by the
marketing community team (which will use those names as much as the
technical community does).

[1] FWIW, it's been a long time since I last considered the naming
process as "fun". It's not been fun for me at all to handle this process
recently and take hits from all sides (I receive more hatemail about
this process than you would think). As we formalize and clarify this
process, I would be glad to transfer the naming process to some
TC-nominated election official. I consider all this "taking back the
naming process" effort as a personal reflection on my inability to
preserve the neutrality of the process. It used to be fun, yes, when I
would throw random names on a whiteboard and get the room to pick. It no
longer is.

I also seem to remember voting in the past as a non-ATC and even

We use the code names heavily in our end user communication (to explain

compared to the release notes on the 'net) and it would be negative if the
brand name was something I felt uncomfortable using in a communication to
one of my end users (who come from over 100 different countries). In a
multi-cultural and diverse community, it can be difficult to find the right
level of humour.

If I remember properly, the Kilo name was a fully open vote.

I also agree that these names have become incredibly important to our
community and care about be placed on how we go about selecting the short

[OpenStack Foundation] OpenStack Foundation 2014 Annual Report

Check out the OpenStack Foundation 2014 Annual report.
https://www.openstack.org/assets/reports/osf-annual-report-2014.pdf

The report highlights a sampling of community statistics for 2014 as well as short recap from the OpenStack Board, the Foundation staff and various committees. The report provides great insight into the growth we have experienced as a Foundation while providing a summmary of some of the 2014 decisions, activities and actions.

It'll be great to have these reports on file over the years so that we will be able to look back over time and see how the Foundation has grown and changed.

Thanks,

AlanClark

We plan to start archiving these on the foundation page:

https://www.openstack.org/foundation/

Will get this one up next week.

[OpenStack Foundation] Fwd: Re: [Foundation Board] propose 2015 board meeting dates

Hi Foundation list members,
Back in November last year on the secret board of directors mailing list, this discussion was had about where to hold the July face to face board meeting instead of just going back to OSCON for a fifth year. I suggested Bengaluru (aka Bangalore) for a few what I thought to be fairly compelling reasons listed below.
After precisely ZERO alternatives were offered on the list or anywhere at all, a secret ballot of the board was held in January and the alternatives of OSCON and Austin Texas appeared from nowhere against Bengaluru. Austin won.
Putting my personal disappointment with the rejection of what I, and others, thought a great idea, the method of how the decision came to be made has me deeply concerned at what the board has become. Our complete failure to adopt crucial transparency committee directives like ceasing to use the secret board mailing list, and now holding secret ballots with no community consultation, not even board discussion, and not even being able to declare decisions openly as grown ups, all just smells a bit off. I just hope this is a momentary lapse of reason, but I suspect not.
I also started to wonder about the leadership of the community that a decision like this shows. None. What possible strategic advantage does holding a board meeting in Austin have?that holding it with hundreds if not thousands of excited Stackers in India has? It's has none, it's a plainly selfish decision by a group of people that felt it was better to take a maximum 3 hour plane flight to somewhere where they would probably still drink bottled water anyway. It's a lazy choice and if a board member made it because they're too busy to travel further, then get off the board because this board needs to travel more not less. Against this laziness, it really ok for the (4 I think) non US resident board members to take minimum 10 to 20 hour plane treks for every single meeting to date?
It also got me thinking about the international diversity of the board, or the lack of. The make up of our board does not come remotely close to reflecting the foundation membership. If it did we surely have a lot more persons from Asia in seats. Alongside some of the outrageously non inclusive components of our bylaws ($60Kpa paid to be affiliated with a company for example), this lack of diversity has to be fixed so our organisation is properly inclusive from the board up. Yes I said "board up", not "board down", because at this point in time I feel like the board is at the bottom of the organisation.
So yes it's hard to completely put my personal disappointment aside about this decision. It was hard to speak with the Indian event organisers who I kept forwarding the board emails to because they couldn't see the list "discussion", and nothing indicated an alternative strategy was emerging.
What to do??Ensure this never happens again. Get rid of the secret mailing list, no more secret ballots, own up to and be public with our decisions as members of this board.
Perhaps lets even run the process for selecting the July board meeting venue again, out in the open as it damn well should have been done to begin with.

I think this is an excellent idea. As Tristan says, there are places
that are unlikely to get a summit, but which are very important to our
community, and getting 24 people there rather than 5000 is a great way
to do that.

I support an East Coast meeting and agree the first meeting should be
booked urgently anywhere, but absolutely, let's pick a different event

There's a great opportunity to hold the meeting to coincide with the
OpenStack India Day in Bengaluru (India's Silicon Valley). India is home
to a huge OpenStack community that is a massive part of what OpenStack is
and it's a community we have not and are not serving. India has the third
largest Foundation membership count after the USA and China.

We can basically acknowledge that a summit is unlikely to be held in India
due to the extreme logistical and infrastructure demands. The Board's
presence at a well promoted and well organised OpenStack India Day will
serve to provide some real compensation for this. The organisers of the
OpenStack India Day were slating it for March, but were so overwhelmed by
the prospect of the increased attendance due to the presences of the Board
members they were willing to throw away their plans to hold it in July
instead. It is not an understatement to say that the presence of the Board
would dramatically increase the expected capacity, taking it from a few
hundred attendees to a number in the thousands. It was also planned for
some OpenStack staff to attend this event already.

Due to Indian culture and values (a good reason alone to attend!) the
presence of the project leadership has an enormous ability to deliver
impact that will drive our mission forth. India has an awesome culture of
respect. Whether you like it or not we as Board directors are looked up to
and admired there in a way that is uniquely Indian.

I realise it's a very long way for many of you, but I've not yet attended
a BoD meeting that was less than a 10.5 hour flight away, so I think
you'll be ok. And don't worry it's entirely possible for even those with
the weakest bellies to avoid food and water problems.

So I'd really like us to dramatically increase our inclusion footprint
with one fairly simple act. We've been to the East (Hong Kong) and Europe
(Paris), and we are back in the East again in Tokyo.

I'm sure most of your organisations have a presence in India, and some
with possibly large teams working on OpenStack. A recent informal poll of
Indian meetup attendees for their national size indicated there is
possibly as many as 10,000 people working in India right now on OpenStack
and related projects! For those of you running 24/7 OpenStack ops in the
Americas or Europe, India is very likely where your team is covering your
night time. Let's embrace this time zone and these people we rely on.

Please consider this request seriously - you have the ability to make
great impact with little more than a longer plane flight than you might be
used to.

Cheers
Tristan

Alan,

Thanks for the proposal .... it really helps to pin down the locations
for the F2F soonish if we can.

We won't know the individual member election results till January.
However, how about an F2F on the US east coast ?

Doing a transatlantic flight for a board meeting is a lot of time/cost
so co-locating with OSCON (or another event) is good. Pinning down the
slot (i.e. the day before, during or the day after) is also needed to
get the flights organised early. Portland flights in the summer were
not cheap so early scheduling would be appreciated.

I like the idea of a non west coast and wondered if we should pick a
different event
than OSCON simply because the Summit is in Vancouver (west coast).
Portland and
Vancouver are geo close. Is there an event where many Directors attend?

For the summits, can we assume the Sunday before the board meeting and
a high-five on the Thursday ?

I still like the idea of a 'high-five' on the Thursday and feel we
should include it. But
will note that we did not reach quorum last time even with dial-in.

Directors,

Before the end of year hits us I'd like to discuss and solidify the
board
meeting
dates for 2015. We have several Directors who need to get the next
couple meeting dates locked in soon.

To get the discussion rolling, I'll propose the following dates for
meeting:
January 29, Conference Call
March 19, F2F Location TBD
April 9, Conference Call
May 17, F2F Vancouver Summit (also a joint board/tc meeting) July,
F2F Location TBD (Should we hold this at OSCON?) October 25, F2F
Tokyo Summit (also a joint board/tc meeting) December 3, Conference
Call

Your thoughts on meeting dates, locations, format?.

respect. Whether you like it or not we as Board directors are looked up to

and admired there in a way that is uniquely Indian.

I realise it's a very long way for many of you, but I've not yet attended

a BoD meeting that was less than a 10.5 hour flight away, so I think

you'll be ok. And don't worry it's entirely possible for even those with

the weakest bellies to avoid food and water problems.

So I'd really like us to dramatically increase our inclusion footprint

with one fairly simple act. We've been to the East (Hong Kong) and Europe

(Paris), and we are back in the East again in Tokyo.

I'm sure most of your organisations have a presence in India, and some

with possibly large teams working on OpenStack. A recent informal poll of

Indian meetup attendees for their national size indicated there is

possibly as many as 10,000 people working in India right now on OpenStack

and related projects! For those of you running 24/7 OpenStack ops in the

Americas or Europe, India is very likely where your team is covering your

night time. Let's embrace this time zone and these people we rely on.

Please consider this request seriously - you have the ability to make

great impact with little more than a longer plane flight than you might be

used to.

Cheers

Tristan

Alan,

Thanks for the proposal .... it really helps to pin down the locations

for the F2F soonish if we can.

We won't know the individual member election results till January.

However, how about an F2F on the US east coast ?

Doing a transatlantic flight for a board meeting is a lot of time/cost

so co-locating with OSCON (or another event) is good. Pinning down the

slot (i.e. the day before, during or the day after) is also needed to

get the flights organised early. Portland flights in the summer were

not cheap so early scheduling would be appreciated.

I like the idea of a non west coast and wondered if we should pick a

different event

than OSCON simply because the Summit is in Vancouver (west coast).

Portland and

Vancouver are geo close. Is there an event where many Directors attend?

>

For the summits, can we assume the Sunday before the board meeting and

a high-five on the Thursday ?

I still like the idea of a 'high-five' on the Thursday and feel we

should include it. But

will note that we did not reach quorum last time even with dial-in.

Directors,

Before the end of year hits us I'd like to discuss and solidify the

board

meeting

dates for 2015. We have several Directors who need to get the next

couple meeting dates locked in soon.

To get the discussion rolling, I'll propose the following dates for

meeting:

January 29, Conference Call

March 19, F2F Location TBD

April 9, Conference Call

May 17, F2F Vancouver Summit (also a joint board/tc meeting) July,

F2F Location TBD (Should we hold this at OSCON?) October 25, F2F

Tokyo Summit (also a joint board/tc meeting) December 3, Conference

Call

Your thoughts on meeting dates, locations, format?.

It has been clear to me that since the OpenStack board started having

that the OpenStack board is going in a direction that does not benefit the
community.

Comments about travel costs for the board shows a very shallow view of what
running an open source community entails. OpenStack is a very well funded
organization and most of the board members come from corporations that pay
significantly for their spot. The cost of travel for the corporate
delegates is minor compared to the other expenses.

The people who run for the board know what the job entails. I believe that
every one of them ran for their role to do good in the community. If a
board member is unable or unwilling to support the common good, why are
they are on the board at all?

Transparency in a organization that uses open in the name is IMHO
obligatory.

I would need a legal opinion on this but my understanding of the bylaws (Foundation's Bylawshttps://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/Bylaws) text (on the request of an Individual Director, the Executive Director may advance the reasonable travel expenses associated with in-person attendance for at least one regular quarterly Board of Directors meeting each calendar year, including airfare, lodging, and meals) is that expenses for more than one meeting could be requested and approved by the executive director.

I think we should publicise this more as people should not feel that the costs of travel to the board meetings are a reason to not stand as an individual representative of the community on the board.

The face to face board meetings have been extremely productive in my opinion and I would wish to continue to attend them in person, as in New York and the future as budgets and other commitments allow.

Hi Jesse,

I agree that the board meetings are dull to watch. However, the point of a board visit is not having a bunch of foreigners say "aye" in a developing country. I'm pretty sure the British Navy did enough of that already.

Synchronising the meeting with the event allows the community to engage with the board in person. Here's the value prop:

The Board walking the floor of the OpenStack India Day talking to people.

The mere presence of the top echelon of the community that these people have chosen to join sends a message that the Foundation, the board and the OpenStack community is willing to buck the trend and reach out to those who are cutting a lot of the code and running a lot of the platforms.

Sure, the board doesn't pay travel costs for corporate board members, but hey, we can afford to send people around the world every now and then. The board SHOULD be paying all the travel and accommodation costs for individual members to attend board meetings(or perhaps those that aren't affiliated with a sponsor) because there's nothing less democratic excluding poor people from participating in government. Currently the board only pays for one such trip during the year.

Tristan,

We went back and forth on this topic on Twitter today and I felt it worthwhile to follow up in more detail.

While I agree that Bangalore would have been a great venue and many folks on the board would have had a wonderful experience, it appears that the majority of the other 23 members didn't feel that experience outweighed the cost in time and monetary value it would take to achieve that. Unlike most corporate boards, the foundation does not pay travel expenses for its board members, which is something each member is aware of upon their petition for election. With that in mind, a majority decision here feels appropriate.

Having international exposure to the OpenStack foundation is important to the long term viability of of this project, the reality is that the board meetings themselves do not expose much value to the overall community. Coming from a community member and board observer who has witnessed almost every board meeting since Paris and plans to continue to do so through 2015, I can say that these meetings are predominantly procedural; mostly nuts and bolts. From what I've witnessed, the board meetings are void of debate. That doesn't make them irrelevant, but it does make me question your assertion that the Indian OpenStack Community would experience great benefit from having them on home soil.

Further, each board meeting is available for real time interaction digitally. Location ultimately doesn't matter for those whom truly have the desire to interact with the board.

I would turn your question back on its head and ask what strategic advantage does having the board meeting in India have over Austin?

Here are my suggestions for the foundation:

  1. Treat the selection of venues in the same way you would treat any other board vote. Do it in the open and record the results.
  1. Leave the board composition as it is. International companies can apply to be gold members and run in the Gold member election, or individual international members can run for the general election. I see nothing wrong with the affiliation bylaws relating to compensation and affiliationhttps://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/Bylaws#ARTICLE_IV._BOARD_OF_DIRECTORS.
  1. Continue to think about ways the board can foster international participation. The alternating summits has worked out well, and we're looking forward to Toyko, and the following summit after that.

Hi Foundation list members,

Back in November last year on the secret board of directors mailing list, this discussion was had about where to hold the July face to face board meeting instead of just going back to OSCON for a fifth year. I suggested Bengaluru (aka Bangalore) for a few what I thought to be fairly compelling reasons listed below.

After precisely ZERO alternatives were offered on the list or anywhere at all, a secret ballot of the board was held in January and the alternatives of OSCON and Austin Texas appeared from nowhere against Bengaluru. Austin won.

Putting my personal disappointment with the rejection of what I, and others, thought a great idea, the method of how the decision came to be made has me deeply concerned at what the board has become. Our complete failure to adopt crucial transparency committee directives like ceasing to use the secret board mailing list, and now holding secret ballots with no community consultation, not even board discussion, and not even being able to declare decisions openly as grown ups, all just smells a bit off. I just hope this is a momentary lapse of reason, but I suspect not.

I also started to wonder about the leadership of the community that a decision like this shows. None. What possible strategic advantage does holding a board meeting in Austin have that holding it with hundreds if not thousands of excited Stackers in India has? It's has none, it's a plainly selfish decision by a group of people that felt it was better to take a maximum 3 hour plane flight to somewhere where they would probably still drink bottled water anyway. It's a lazy choice and if a board member made it because they're too busy to travel further, then get off the board because this board needs to travel more not less. Against this laziness, it really ok for the (4 I think) non US resident board members to take minimum 10 to 20 hour plane treks for every single meeting to date?

It also got me thinking about the international diversity of the board, or the lack of. The make up of our board does not come remotely close to reflecting the foundation membership. If it did we surely have a lot more persons from Asia in seats. Alongside some of the outrageously non inclusive components of our bylaws ($60Kpa paid to be affiliated with a company for example), this lack of diversity has to be fixed so our organisation is properly inclusive from the board up. Yes I said "board up", not "board down", because at this point in time I feel like the board is at the bottom of the organisation.

So yes it's hard to completely put my personal disappointment aside about this decision. It was hard to speak with the Indian event organisers who I kept forwarding the board emails to because they couldn't see the list "discussion", and nothing indicated an alternative strategy was emerging.

What to do? Ensure this never happens again. Get rid of the secret mailing list, no more secret ballots, own up to and be public with our decisions as members of this board.

Perhaps lets even run the process for selecting the July board meeting venue again, out in the open as it damn well should have been done to begin with.

Cheers

To:

Directors,

The most frequent feedback received after every board meeting is the desire for the Board to have more time for strategic level discussions. Since we were able to get through the pressing logistical topics at the January call, we would like to propose that for the March 3rd Board meeting we spend a large portion of the meeting time in an active discussion on board level forward direction and vision.

We've placed a short straw outline on the unofficial board notes etherpad[1] . The outline suggests the discussion flow for the future vision topic. This is intentionally a work in progress. Directors as you have time this week, we invite you to add your thoughts, ideas, and discussion driving questions to the outline. The outline has not been "word smithed". If something is missing add it, if the text draws the wrong conclusion change it.

We'd also like to suggest that during the meeting we use this etherpad as the focal point. Posting notes, ideas and conclusions on the etherpad, particularly during the breakouts, rather than sticky notes, whiteboards or slides will help ensure we capture all ideas into a coherent flow and that we are able to include those Directors who will be unable to join the meeting in person.

Committee chairs if you have any additional topics for the agenda please send those to me and I will add them to the agenda.

Thanks,
AlanClark

Yeah it is a serious issue. The descent of the board into secret emails, secret meetings and behind the scenes manoeuvring is a serious issue for the community that has placed its trust in us. We the board are failing at being open and it's unbelievable that this closed cabal like email list behaviour is still going on.?
Why is this list still confidential after what the board said they'd be using the main foundation list for EVERYTHING bar HR and serious legal matters? Why was this message put on this confidential list? Why shouldn't the community be being asked about the board's agenda?
And when you say "protocol", do you mean something like top/bottom posting? Where is this protocol documented that you speak of? This is OPENSTACK mate, where the overriding protocol is OPEN.

Thanks Sean. The mailing list issue has been festering for a long time. We should have circled back to this sooner. If someone wants to go thorough the complaint process that's fine but I propose that it will be best if we put it on the board meeting agenda. This latest thread shows that we have several areas that need to be addressed.so that we all operate under the same premise.

As one of the new transparancy committee members, it is one of my responsibilities to report on the board transparency.

The transparancy policy as adopted by the board and posted here http://www.openstack.org/legal/transparency-policy/ generally states that information not falling under the heading confidential information, will be made public through the foundation mailing list. This is not explicit however. The selection of the board meeting locations does not seem to be confidential. I am open to discussing how it could be considered so.

In the spirit of being a community that works together in the open, I would like to see the future discussions around selecting board meeting locations be made in the open like most everything else we do. I think an agreement to do this on the ML would be enough to move forward and past this specific issue.

If this is a problem that cannot be solved here and needs formal resolution, I would recommend that the process to file a complaint with Jonathan outlined in section 5 of the transparency policy be followed.

[OpenStack Foundation] Fwd: Re: [Foundation Board] propose2015board meeting dates

I noticed in a subsequent email Tristan would also like to see a new vote.if the transparency committee feels that the board violated policy the committee could bring both items to the agenda. That's what the committee is chartered to do.

Thanks Sean. The mailing list issue has been festering for a long time. We should have circled back to this sooner. If someone wants to go thorough the complaint process that's fine but I propose that it will be best if we put it on the board meeting agenda. This latest thread shows that we have several areas that need to be addressed.so that we all operate under the same premise.

As one of the new transparancy committee members, it is one of my responsibilities to report on the board transparency.

The transparancy policy as adopted by the board and posted here http://www.openstack.org/legal/transparency-policy/ generally states that information not falling under the heading confidential information, will be made public through the foundation mailing list. This is not explicit however. The selection of the board meeting locations does not seem to be confidential. I am open to discussing how it could be considered so.

In the spirit of being a community that works together in the open, I would like to see the future discussions around selecting board meeting locations be made in the open like most everything else we do. I think an agreement to do this on the ML would be enough to move forward and past this specific issue.

If this is a problem that cannot be solved here and needs formal resolution, I would recommend that the process to file a complaint with Jonathan outlined in section 5 of the transparency policy be followed.

I absolutely agree that public discussion and public recording of board decisions is important. The intent of my email was to comment on Tristan's concerns in the aggregate.

It has been clear to me that since the OpenStack board started having private, non recorded, non accessible meetings along with private voting, that the OpenStack board is going in a direction that does not benefit the community.

Comments about travel costs for the board shows a very shallow view of what running an open source community entails. OpenStack is a very well funded organization and most of the board members come from corporations that pay significantly for their spot. The cost of travel for the corporate delegates is minor compared to the other expenses.

The people who run for the board know what the job entails. I believe that every one of them ran for their role
to do good in the community. If a board member is unable or unwilling to support the common good, why are they are on the board at all?

Transparency in a organization that uses open in the name is IMHO obligatory.

I agree with Matt - the best bars in Times Square are the ones that are
not in Times Square :)

I was also going to suggest we get together informally somewhere...
Actually - could we get a tally of how many people are going to come?
Right now I count 6-8 in my head - which is a completely reasonable
number of people to go many places with. If it winds up being 20, that's
a TOTALLY different number of people to walk in to some bars with.

SO - I've put up an Etherpad with the names of people I grok so far are
coming:

https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/FoundationBoardDrinkingGameNYC2015

Based on what we get from that, some combination of Matt and I will make
some semblance of a final drinking plan.

Mark McLoughlin and Dave Neary suggested a path forward to merge the

create a mailing list and try things out to see if that option is still
viable or not

Is it worth proceeding? Any volunteer?

Regarding the repository for files, there was an effort from Infra team
to investigate deploying a couple of storage options but there was no

The "just use the foundation list" approach was a worthwhile experiment,

members to use (particularly for mundane matters) a list that's
perceived to be a huge public audience.

A public mailing list specifically for the purpose of coordinating board
matters makes more sense. We explored the idea of opening the
foundation-board list, but the concern was about opening the archives of
a previously private list. I think we should just create a new public
list, calling it e.g. foundation-directors.

But yes - we still don't have a mechanism for sharing necessarily
confidential documents amongst board members, so we should retain the
private list for that purpose. Perhaps we should set the moderation bit
on the private list so every email would be moderated and only approve
those emails which are simply sharing confidential documents.

    discussing mid-year travel schedules and would like to attend,
    and I definitely think we should make a strong effort to
    recruit Board and TC and other community members to attend the
    event.

Cool.

showing us where we should focus next.

This is not about a privacy issue, or some trademark infringement the

This is exactly why this sort of thinking and behaviour needs to end

Directors,

The other day, I sent out a pre-board social suggestion to the
foundation list
INSTEAD of this list. I did that on purpose...

Even if you cannot attend, it would be helpful to see some
non-hot-issue
related
board director traffic on that list.

If you CAN attend, I think it would be a nice gesture to make
directors
accessible. I
generally enjoy the chance to reconnect outside of and before the
in-person board
meetings.

All,

Since I was sending a PDF of the DefCore notes to the Board list, Alan

Since these are unapproved minutes, they go on this list.

For DefCore, I've already forwarded a LINK

An observation on last July's Transparency Committee report was that the
Foundation's counsel are uncomfortable with the realities of a transparent
board.

If my memory serves me correctly, the reason that discussions around Gold
Member applications is confidential is to protect the current board members
from the legal ramifications of their comments.

Tristan, is this a correct interpretation? If so, I think this is might be
a good first item to cut from the confidential list. It is imperative that
the community know what is going on wrt companies trying to join the
OpenStack Foundation. Just because a board member doesn't want to say
something publicly does not make it confidential.

[OpenStack Foundation] Items to add to this weeks BoD meeting agenda

Hello all,

In light of the recent spate of discussions on Transparency and Diversity,
can I please ask for the following items to be added to the top of the
agenda for the March F2F meeting? This is to ensure that these critical
items are not missed due to a lack of time.

ITEMS TO ADD TO THE AGENDA

Transparency

1.

Set usage rules for sending email to the confidential Board list
2.

Ensure community feedback in the decision making process for those rules
3.

Regular reports from the transparency committee

Diversity & Inclusion

1.

Establishment of a diversity committee, with a remit to ensure diversity
at the board, Foundation staff and project contributor levels
2.

Regular reports on diversity released bi-annually
3.

Expert review of the bylaws for other discriminatory content
1.

  Extend Travel Support for individual directors. Prohibitively
  expensive for unsponsored individual directors. Only one trip presently
  with 4 x F2F per annum
  2.

  (example 2 - Affiliation criteria is non inclusive. Proposal to
  change $ amount to a % of the income earned)
  4.

The foundation must have a published diversity and inclusion policy that
covers the Foundation employees AND its actions with respect to the
community. The board needs to set the direction for the Foundation to
follow and the Foundation executive should have these goals included in
their performance criteria.

regards,

Kavit

Hi Kavit,

The transparency topics fall within the the transparency committee. Let's have that committee take those items.

I added your committee proposal to the agenda. Since your request came in today (Monday) and with everyone traveling I don't know how many will have seen your request before arriving at the meeting tomorrow so I labeled it as a discussion.
Thanks,
AlanClark

Hello all,

In light of the recent spate of discussions on Transparency and Diversity,
can I please ask for the following items to be added to the top of the
agenda for the March F2F meeting? This is to ensure that these critical
items are not missed due to a lack of time.

ITEMS TO ADD TO THE AGENDA

Transparency

1.

Set usage rules for sending email to the confidential Board list
2.

Ensure community feedback in the decision making process for those rules
3.

Regular reports from the transparency committee

Diversity & Inclusion

1.

Establishment of a diversity committee, with a remit to ensure diversity
at the board, Foundation staff and project contributor levels
2.

Regular reports on diversity released bi-annually
3.

Expert review of the bylaws for other discriminatory content
1.

  Extend Travel Support for individual directors. Prohibitively
  expensive for unsponsored individual directors. Only one trip 

presently
with 4 x F2F per annum
2.

  (example 2 - Affiliation criteria is non inclusive. Proposal to
  change $ amount to a % of the income earned)
  4.

The foundation must have a published diversity and inclusion policy that
covers the Foundation employees AND its actions with respect to the
community. The board needs to set the direction for the Foundation to
follow and the Foundation executive should have these goals included in
their performance criteria.

regards,

Kavit

[OpenStack Foundation] Invitation to Drinks at Bar 10, Westin New York in Times Square

OpenStackers one and all,

The next OpenStack Foundation Board meeting is tomorrow Tuesday March 3rd
in New York, and I wanted to invite any OpenStack community members
(developers, business folks, TC members and Board members) to Happy Hour
drinks on me and DreamHost at Bar 10 in the Westin New York at Times Square
from 5pm-6.30pm this evening.

Address of the Westin is 270 West 43rd Street, New York. It's that bright
colorful building among many other bright colorful signs and buildings...

I know this is short notice, but it would be great to meet up and chat with
a group of Big Apple OpenStackers and any other community members in town,
so we can take some input and energy into this important Board meeting
where we have some deep dive strategy discussions on the agenda!

I do not have a reserved space at Bar 10, so just show up and find me and
I'll have a credit card behind the bar!

Best,
Simon Anderson
CEO

[OpenStack Foundation] transparency committee, proposed dates and agenda

We have a very full day of strategy and defcore discussion with the full
board tomorrow. I want to be prepared before proposing anything to the
board. I will be deferring any Transparency committee discussion tomorrow
to a later board meeting when we are ready.

Here are a few dates that work for me. We can meet on one or all of them.
We can use hangout, webex, or something else.
10:00 am PST Thursday, 12 March
2:00 pm PST Tuesday, 17 March
6:30 pm PST Thursday, 26 March

I want the committee and anyone who is interested to meet, discuss ideas. A
rough agenda so far would include use of private ML and IRC channels,
diversity, what examples of transparency should we be following, and rating
the board transparency performance for annual reporting.

[OpenStack Foundation] March 2 Board of Directors Meeting

Hi everyone,

On Tuesday, the Board of Directors held a face-to-face meeting in chilly New York City. We had 19 of 24 directors in person, and three participated on the phone throughout.

The primary objective of this meeting was to engage in some strategic planning with the Board. Mark Collier kicked off the meeting by providing some context about the state of OpenStack and relevant emerging market trends. The Board members then broke into four small groups to dive into 4 areas: (1) Network Functions Virtualization / Internet of Things, (2) containers / developer productivity and tools, (3) public & hybrid clouds and (4) coordinating efforts across projects and companies within OpenStack, including the new product manager community working group. There was a lot of discussion about how we can better engage with other industry groups and open source technologies, the importance of continuing to attract developers to OpenStack, and how we can become more strategic with our contributions. The Directors spent time within their small groups and then presented their thoughts for discussion to the full Board after lunch. Coming out of the meeting the Foundation staff and Directors will turn this input into actions that can be incorporated into 2015 plans, as well as longer-term initiatives.

Following the strategic planning discussions, Rob Hirschfeld gave an update from the DefCore committee and presented a slate of capabilities for the Board to approve as the official ?2015.3? specification. The Board approved the proposed DefCore committee process and slate of capabilities for "OpenStack Powered? products. This was a huge milestone for the DefCore efforts, and enables the Foundation staff to now implement the new license agreements and product testing program when the bylaws changes go into effect at the end of March. If you are responsible for an OpenStack Powered product or service within your company, we will be reaching out to help you adopt the new licensing programs. A very big thank you to Rob Hirschfeld and the DefCore committee who worked hard to make quick progress over the past couple of months.

Finally, the Board wrapped up with an hour-long discussion about transparency and diversity. Discussion points included implementing better mailing list procedures, potential changes to the Transparency Policy and how Board Members can better engage with and support all of our global communities. Sean Roberts is picking up the Transparency Committee work, which will convene in the next few weeks to follow up on the discussion with more concrete recommendations and actions on that front. Also, Robert Esker started a thread on this list to discuss potential updates to the Transparency Policy.

After the meeting many of the participants trekked across a wet and snowy NYC to continue discussions over dinner. It was really energizing to see how far the community has come in five years and consider the opportunities for OpenStack over the next five. I appreciate the enthusiasm and engagement from the Board on all of these important topics. Thanks to everyone who participated in person and remotely!

Thanks,
Jonathan

Re: [OpenStack Foundation] Foundation Digest, Vol 40, Issue 8

I'm replying on Thierry's question about the current Gold member applicant
process, where we allow prospective Gold members to engage with a
Platinum/Gold Member Committee of the Board in the initial phase to guide
them on criteria for consideration for membership.

The current criteria and high level process is laid out here:
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/PotentialMemberCriteria

The idea behind the initial phase where a potential Gold membership
applicant could engage with the Foundation and the Committee was to ensure
that before they applied, they would be able to get a better understanding
of the criteria, how they are applied by the Board, and any initial
feedback on strengths or weaknesses in their supporting information that
they might be able to address before they apply. This was implemented to
help all applicants put their best foot forward once they decided to
formally apply, because once an application has been made, it sets things
in motion with less time for them to prepare or adjust before they come
before the Board for consideration. This was not intended as a process to
diminish transparency, as the full documentation of an application and
supporting docs is available to everyone once the prospect formally
applies. But rather to avoid a situation where the applicant fails to be
approved as a member due to lack of understanding of the criteria or
inadequate preparation of supporting information on the criteria.

The current process has I think enabled potential applicants to (a) take
more time or defer their application so that they better meet the criteria
(through real steps in the community or their business), and (b) have a
much deeper understanding of the criteria and how they've been applied in
prior applications, and (c) be much happier with how they are guided
overall in the process, whether they are successful or not in gaining Gold
membership.

The Committee is very open to evolving the process and changing it,
especially if any adjustments strengthen it in aligning with the core
values of the OpenStack community including transparency. I hope this quick
background on the current process is helpful in that dialogue.

Best,
Simon

Since we are considering changes, why are "discussions around Gold
Member applications" considered confidential information ?

It feels like a pretty important topic, and unlike the other "sensitive
information" examples, it's not immediately obvious why that is
sensitive or legally-restricted.

Gold members are a self-selected group (new members selected by existing
board members), and without checks and balances, self-selected groups
often turn into an aristocracy (picking friends rather than the most
appropriate). Having public discussions around the addition of new
Platinum and Gold members would go a long way to reassure the rest of
the Foundation membership that they are chosen for the right reasons,
and give everyone insight on what the "right reasons" are.

Re: [OpenStack Foundation] Suggestions about OpenStack

I agree, Roland, that measurable and meaningful objectives are fundamental, however, I think there is an earlier starting point.

The issue of diversity and inclusion rests on the foundation of organizational culture. In order to steer a change in culture you first have to know where it is and then where you want it to go.

The OpenStack foundation in particular is a blend of many divergent cultures. Every member comes to the foundation with a unique framework of values and cultural orientation. Typically, individual value systems are what drive behaviors. As we interact with one another we develop a collective cultural norm that makes up the overall organizational culture. In such a large organization there will be pockets of subcultures where one or more sets of cultural features are dominant. Some of these will naturally be more inclusive of "different" than others.

I believe it is important to assess the current culture as a first step. This could be done through a well-crafted professional survey of the membership. It would be prudent to engage with experts in the field of organizational culture to develop such a survey. There are several existing tools that could be employed but an expert would be versed enough to recommend the best suited for this type of organization.

With that knowledge in hand it would be possible to create purposeful objectives, with meaningful measurements to steer the culture where the board wants it to go.

Best,
Debra


Debra Scott, PMP 866-814-73304

First up the board should set some goals. Create a diversity or inclusion policy with specific measureable objectives. Then it is possible to have a meaningful discussion about what to do.

One starting point would be to have the foundation regularly or continuously report on itself (board and staff at a minimum. Reporting on the membership would be great but perhaps only partially achievable). That at least would demonstrate transparency and make it fairly clear whether there is a problem with the diversity of the foundation. It may also provide a mechanism for tracking progress towards the goals, whatever they may be.

Roland

OpenStack Community,

The Board has been discussing how to encourage diversity (all types from gender and region to commercial and technical) and also work to improve transparency of Board processes.

If you have ideas for us to consider, please feel free to reply to this thread.

If you think that we're doing OK (or not) on this, please let us know that too.

Thanks,

I remember we used to have a lot of information about summit attendees made
entirely too transparent...

I did some analytics back then and notices some interesting culture
differences by geographic lines. I analyzed people based on their first
name being identified as male, female, or unknown.

April 2013:

female attendees: 193
male attendees: 1493
unknown attendees: 718

Prior summit:

female attendees: 91
male attendees: 843
unknown attendees: 380

I also did a quick check against the old Authors file back then:

females : 29
males : 297
unknowncount : 201

that put us about 10% female contributorship.

There are more female developers in teams originating over seas from asia.
Not sure why that is. But it does raise a point, the OpenStack community
is a global one. And it's something of a hodge podge of cultures in that
regard. So the establishment of a unified culture is only going to extend
so far. That being said, development culture is evolving regardless of the
contributors background.

I love the gnome women's outreach program. And I'd love to see that
furthered on a global level. Getting young women involved and getting
their feedback as part of a structured introduction to open source
development could be beneficial to all. We basically need to reach out to
as many women from the pool of young developers as possible if we intend to
create any sort of balance.

I'd love to see more women promoted to core reviewer positions. I think
that's an area we could make an effort to promote a greater level of parity
in gender balance. And I think that would be beneficial. The problem is,
that we vote in core reviewers and providing an avenue for artificial
weighting there is somewhat perilous in terms of allowing further avenues
for gaming the system. Not sure how we address that.

At NYC Resistor in Brooklyn ( my local hackspace ) we've been pretty
serious about trying to maintain some level of gender parity, and that's
been interesting, and difficult. But we're also a group of like 50 people,
not the several thousand that openstack is. We're also a closed
invitational group, openstack isn't. What I can say is that what we've
learned is that cross disciplinary efforts can bring in new folks who
otherwise wouldn't have considered being involved, and that perspective can
be very beneficial. Also the way in which technology is used or presented
engages different audiences. When we decide to create working groups the
scope, the purpose, the goals... these have an intrinsic impact on who
those things reach out to and draw into them.

Better numbers on gender would be nice. If I can find some free time I'll
try to analyze stackalytics again for gender breakdowns. It would be nice
to know if anything is actually working.

Matt Joyce

I agree, Roland, that measurable and meaningful objectives are
fundamental, however, I think there is an earlier starting point.

The issue of diversity and inclusion rests on the foundation of
organizational culture. In order to steer a change in culture you first
have to know where it is and then where you want it to go.

The OpenStack foundation in particular is a blend of many divergent
cultures. Every member comes to the foundation with a unique framework of
values and cultural orientation. Typically, individual value systems are
what drive behaviors. As we interact with one another we develop a
collective cultural norm that makes up the overall organizational culture.
In such a large organization there will be pockets of subcultures where one
or more sets of cultural features are dominant. Some of these will
naturally be more inclusive of “different” than others.

I believe it is important to assess the current culture as a first step.
This could be done through a well-crafted professional survey of the
membership. It would be prudent to engage with experts in the field of
organizational culture to develop such a survey. There are several existing
tools that could be employed but an expert would be versed enough to
recommend the best suited for this type of organization.

With that knowledge in hand it would be possible to create purposeful
objectives, with meaningful measurements to steer the culture where the
board wants it to go.

Best,
Debra


Debra Scott, PMP 866-814-73304

First up the board should set some goals. Create a diversity or inclusion
policy with specific measureable objectives. Then it is possible to have a
meaningful discussion about what to do.

One starting point would be to have the foundation regularly or
continuously report on itself (board and staff at a minimum. Reporting on
the membership would be great but perhaps only partially achievable). That
at least would demonstrate transparency and make it fairly clear whether
there is a problem with the diversity of the foundation. It may also
provide a mechanism for tracking progress towards the goals, whatever they
may be.

Roland

OpenStack Community,

The Board has been discussing how to encourage diversity (all types from
gender and region to commercial and technical) and also work to improve
transparency of Board processes.

If you have ideas for us to consider, please feel free to reply to this
thread.

If you think that we're doing OK (or not) on this, please let us know that
too.

Thanks,

[OpenStack Foundation] Current state of CLA conversation?

About a year ago there was a lot of discussion about the CLA, and how it
was inhibiting contributions, and if there was a better way (like the DCO).

This remains a real and unaddressed issue. From today's Nova IRC channel.

" So i got stuck while following the code contribution
docs/process. Gotta wait for my employer to sign Corporate Contributor
License Agreement ... oh well, 5 lines of code."

Those 5 lines of code fix a Nova live migration scenario. Because of the
CLA that fix is unlikely to land in Kilo.

Is there an update on where the foundation stands on the CLA?

That reminds me, I need to make a blog post about the survey I ran last
year on CLA usage in FLOSS projects. The data is publicly available here:

https://github.com/allisonrandal/contrib-policy-survey

There are some visualizations in the graphs/ directory. Probably the
most useful is the display of developer's willingness to contribute
under various contribution policies:

[Foundation Board] Openstack Diversity Working Group

Stackers - We're happy to announce the creation of a Diversity Working Group. The genesis for this work group was a discussion at the May meeting of the OpenStack Board of Directors ahead of the Vancouver Summit.

The Board is committed to fostering an inclusive and welcoming place for all people to collaborate to drive innovation and design cutting-edge data center capabilities, while finding the best answers to our most pressing challenges. To achieve this, the Board formed this Work Group to determine what actions are required to fulfill this commitment. Three Board members volunteered to work with community members in this Work Group and bring updates/requests to the Board for discussion and action on a regular basis, starting with the July meeting.

If you're interested in joining this effort, please:

We will send out the results of the Doodle to the mail list and look forward to working with you to foster a strong and diverse community.

Thanks

[OpenStack Foundation] Follow up on Future of CLA and DCO

Posting here about -
http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/foundation-board/2015-June/000080.html
because that's a board only post list.

As the next board meeting is only a month away, I just wanted to
reiterate what I believe was said in the meeting, hopefully to be really
crisp about what's being asked for.

The Board has currently been going through the process of working out a
way that for people covered by a corporate CLA, they would not need to
sign an ICLA, which would simply their entry in the community. This
would cover over 90% of current contributors to OpenStack.

The suggestion was made that with such large coverage of the community,
the Board would then feel comfortable that individuals, contributing as
individuals, not under a corporate CLA, would be able to contribute
under a DCO model. I believe this was called the "Johnathan Plan", and
presented by Monty.

The TC representatives in the room (which was nearly all of us)
strongly desire that end state. The TC has previously formally passed
a formal resolution prefering the DCO over the CLA -
https://github.com/openstack/governance/blob/master/resolutions/20140909-cla.rst.
And would be happy to reaffirm that if there is any doubt that it
remains the current view of the TC.

The TC would like to see this "plan of record" voted on and approved by
the board:

Step 1: Remove the need for the ICLA by people contributing on behalf of
an entity that has signed the corporate CLA.
Step 2: Remove the need for the ICLA by individuals not contributing
under a CLA, because they are contributing on their own behalf (and
instead accept their contributions under a DCO).

It's ok that Step 1 happens before Step 2 for implementation reasons,
but we really want the go Board stamp that Step 2 is approved to happen.
And that sounded like it needed a formal, roll call vote.

If anyone remembers things differently, please respond. This has been a
matter of great interest by many of the TC members, me included, for
quite a while, and it seemed like we got very close to a real plan at
the last joint meeting, and don't want to loose that progress.

It's also worth pointing out that some among our developer community
already include DCO attestations in their commit messages. Concern
was expressed previously that contributors may be doing this without
awareness of the legal implications, and so our developer guide now
contains an explanation[1] to help alleviate that concern.

This includes elements such as personal background, experiences, education,thinking processes, approaches to problem solving and life experiences. Diversity takes into account similarities and differences in all individuals around the world and can involve multiple aspects, including geographic location, country of origin, economic class or position, cultural norms and traditional societal norms. The differences range from subtle nuances to very clear points of difference – this is the nature of diversity.Charter Proposal by: Egle Sigler, Kavit Munshi, Imad SousouFrom Lauren Sell:Summit Demographics & Community BuildingOf course, the largest investment we make in global community building is moving the Summit location every six months. Changing locations and variables is an investment for the Foundation, but this practice dramatically impacts the makeup of our attendees and allows greater access to participate in the OpenStack community. For example, you can see the different geographical distribution across the four most recent Summits:Hong Kong (Nov 2013) Summit Attendee Demographics (3,000 total attendees):• 45% - APAC• 41% - North America• 12% - Europe• 1% - Middle East• 1% - Latin AmericaHong Kong (Nov 2013) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:• United States• China• Hong Kong• Japan• India• United Kingdom• Taiwan• France• Australia• KoreaAtlanta Summit (May 2014) Attendee Demographics (4,500 total attendees):• 81% North America• 9% Europe• 8% APAC• 1% Middle East• 1% Latin AmericaAtlanta (May 2014) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:• United States• Canada• Japan• France• United Kingdom• China• India• Israel• Russia• GermanyParis Summit (Nov 2014) Attendee Demographics (4,700 total attendees):• 47% Europe• 35% North America• 15% APAC• 2% Middle East• 1% Latin AmericaParis (Nov 2014) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:• United States• France• United Kingdom• Germany• China• Japan• India• Canada • Italy • SwitzerlandVancouver Summit (May 2015) Attendee Demographics (5,600+ - updated count will be tallied on Monday night)• 75% - North America• 12% - Europe• 10% - APAC • 2% - Middle East• 1% - Latin AmericaVancouver (May 2015) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:1) United States2) Canada3) Japan4) UK5) China6) India7) Germany8) France9) Israel10) RussiaEach Summit, we’ve grown our Travel Support Program, where we cover flights and accommodations for contributors who may not be sponsored to make the trip:• In Atlanta, the Foundation sponsored 21 people from 8 different countries for a total investment of 40,000 USD• In Paris, the Foundation sponsored 20 people from 10 different countries for a total investment of 54,000 USD• In Vancouver, the Foundation sponsored 28 people (7 female, 21 male) from 14 countries for a total investment of 60,000 USDThe Foundation also offers discounted and complementary Summit registration to University students, government and non-profit employees to make the event accessible. In addition to the Summits happening every six months, we have more than 75 user groups around the world hosting regular user group meetings. Many of these groups host an "OpenStack Day" event in their region once per year, and the Foundation not only helps sponsor and organize these events, but also invests in trying to get a Staff member to attend or speak at each event. We invest an approximately 100,000 USD in the regional user group events, including these OpenStack Days and the annual birthday meetups each year.You can find many of these metrics in the 2014 Annual Report: https://www.openstack.org/assets/reports/osf-annual-report-2014.pdfwznoinsk: is it doable to get gender and other info from openstack Communit Member profile (i.e: when you register on openstack.org you select your gender) to extend let's say StackAlytics?Women of OpenStackWomen continue to be an underrepresented group in terms of community member demographics, Summit attendees and especially speakers.

This week, there will be a Women of OpenStack networking event sponsored by IBM and Intel on Sunday, we're sponsoring an "Allies Workshop" hosted by the Ada Initaitive Monday afternoon, and there will be a workshop happening Tuesday morning to identify actionable goals and plans over the next year. Also all of the #vBrownBag lightning talk speaking slots on Tuesday have been reserved for the Women of OpenStack. There is an opportunity for a similar group of community members to build and support diversity initiatives for OpenStack.Additionally, the Foundation and OpenStack ecosystem companies have been strong sponsors of the GNOME Outreach for Women Program (now known as Outreachy). In 2014, the Foundation itself sponsored 4 interns, and the greater community sponsored 12 interns. The most difficult investment is coordination and time on behalf of mentors in the community, which we greatly appreciate.Additional areas I think the committee should consider focusing on and investing in to improve diversity in our community are the global Ambassadors program, publishing / providing visibility into more diversity metrics, recruiting speakers for Summits and other events, and increased investment and support for the internationalization (translations) team.Thank you,

Just for clarification, we talked about mission, charter, definition of
diversity, and diversity policy. The action items reference the charter,
diversity statement and diversity policy. I'm unclear how many of those
docs are the same thing and which we are creating, editing and/or
approving.

Here's my best guess, please correct:

Mission (statement) - high-level description of what the group wants to
achieve
- housed on wiki page, draft needs to be approved by group

Charter - power granted to group, it defines functions and obligations of
group
- housed ?, needs to be edited by group and approved by board
- currently has a definition of diversity

Diversity policy - defines terminology (like diversity) and sets broad
expectations and actions to achieve mission
- housed ?, new doc created by group and approved by board

Thanks,
Amanda

  • Mission Discussion and definition of Diversity -
    https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Diversity

  • Charter discussion: feedback from Vancouver was that the operational
    scope was too broad

  • Possible Definitions

  • [13:13:47] diversity - eliminate bias on the
    basis of age, race, creed, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual
    orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status, and socioeconomic
    status.

  • [13:13:54] M-W.com: diversity, noun, : the quality
    or state of having many different forms, types, ideas, etc. : the state of
    having people who are different races or who have different cultures in a
    group or organization

  • [13:14:54] for me diversity is really about
    getting a variety of thought more than anything; so that any problem has
    lots of diferent viewpoints and experiences coloring the outcome;
    [13:16:04] and that variety comes from different
    disciplines (engineers, devs, qa, ux, ops, product managers) as well as
    cultural and gender backgrounds

  • Top areas of focus for diversity: GENDER (male to female ratio);
    GEOGRAPHIC (downloads, contribution, and attendance by country; what
    countries / regions have low or NO representation?); CULTURE

  • Other areas of future exploration: religion, age, disability

  • Discuss proposal to engage a Consultant/Coach to assist this work
    group

  • Review proposed work plan, gather feedback, and owners

  • Next Steps

  • Meeting Frequency

  • [13:45:09] And next step is have a meeting that
    is 12 hours different to this one, and include others before deciding on
    anything

  • [13:48:30] I wonder if we want to have weekly
    meetings, given the interest, and alternate them between US/EMEA-friendly
    and APAC/Japan-friendly?

  • [13:52:21] @eglute - hard to meet everyone's
    needs, but if we had 3 or 4 people in a core group for geographies who
    could serve as delegates, it might make it easier to get stuff done

  • [13:52:59] #action barrett to start 1-2 doodles to
    find the best times for us to meet?

  • Interest/Need for alternating times to make the meetings globally
    accessible. Moving forward we’ll use the foundation@lists.openstack.org
    mail list for work group discussions and meeting communications.

Action Items:
1)Define diversity policy

  • volunteers:

  • Target date for bringing draft to group for review: 2 weeks?

  • Kavit Munshi (will lead + coordinate definition)

  • ShillaSaebi

  • Rainya

  • Amandap

  • Tristan

  • Niki Acosta

  • 2) Carol: Setup Doodles to find 2 good times for meeting every other
    week, alternating timing

  • 3) NIki: Lead the process of getting nominations for Geo Ambassadors
    once the meeting times are set

  • 4) Get charter ratified by BoD (review language objected to at
    Vancouver summit)

  • 5)DiveristyStatement: prepare proposal to be presented to BoD to
    approve the formation of a diversity policy. Include wording in Code
    of Conduct (both of them). +1

Proposed charter, as presented to the BoD in Vancouver:

May 15, 2015OpenStack Board Diversity Committee Charter
In an effort to assert and facilitate the incorporation of diversity
policies into its overall strategy, the Board of Directors of the
OpenStack Foundation is committed to fostering a more inclusive and welcoming
place for all people to collaborate and drive innovation and design
cutting-edge data center capabilities, while finding the best answers to
our most pressing challenges.

This committee will sponsor and create programs that encourage diversity
by identifying and removing the barriers that keep us from having a
diverse, thriving community. The programs defined by this committee will
apply to the Board of Directors, OpenStack Foundation, Technical Committee,
PTLs, Developers and the entire OpenStack Community. Each program will
have specific success metrics and the committee will provide regular
updates on all programs to the Board as well as the Community.

Programs sponsored and/or created by the Diversity Committee will require
Board of Directors approval. The committee will review existing
Foundation programs and policies on regular basis to evaluate their
performance and effectiveness. The committee will collaborate with the TC,
User committee and the BoD to ensure that all programs are meeting their
diversity goals.

Diversity is defined as all the ways people differ from one another
including race, color, religion, sex, national origin, language,
ancestry, age, disability, medical condition, genetic information, military
and veteran status, marital status, pregnancy, gender, gender expression,
gender identity, sexual orientation and other aspects. This includes
elements such as personal background, experiences, education,thinking processes,
approaches to problem solving and life experiences. Diversity takes into
account similarities and differences in all individuals around the world
and can involve multiple aspects, including geographic location, country
of origin, economic class or position, cultural norms and traditional societal
norms. The differences range from subtle nuances to very clear points of
difference – this is the nature of diversity.

From Lauren Sell:

Summit Demographics & Community Building
Of course, the largest investment we make in global community building is
moving the Summit location every six months. Changing locations and
variables is an investment for the Foundation, but this practice
dramatically impacts the makeup of our attendees and allows greater access
to participate in the OpenStack community. For example, you can see the
different geographical distribution across the four most recent Summits:

Hong Kong (Nov 2013) Summit Attendee Demographics (3,000 total attendees):
• 45% - APAC
• 41% - North America
• 12% - Europe
• 1% - Middle East
• 1% - Latin America

Hong Kong (Nov 2013) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:
• United States
• China
• Hong Kong
• Japan
• India
• United Kingdom
• Taiwan
• France
• Australia
• Korea

Atlanta Summit (May 2014) Attendee Demographics (4,500 total attendees):
• 81% North America
• 9% Europe
• 8% APAC
• 1% Middle East
• 1% Latin America

Atlanta (May 2014) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:
• United States
• Canada
• Japan
• France
• United Kingdom
• China
• India
• Israel
• Russia
• Germany

Paris Summit (Nov 2014) Attendee Demographics (4,700 total attendees):
• 47% Europe
• 35% North America
• 15% APAC
• 2% Middle East
• 1% Latin America

Paris (Nov 2014) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:
• United States
• France
• United Kingdom
• Germany
• China
• Japan
• India
• Canada
• Italy
• Switzerland

Vancouver Summit (May 2015) Attendee Demographics (5,600+ - updated count
will be tallied on Monday night)
• 75% - North America
• 12% - Europe
• 10% - APAC
• 2% - Middle East
• 1% - Latin America

Vancouver (May 2015) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:
1) United States
2) Canada
3) Japan
4) UK
5) China
6) India
7) Germany
8) France
9) Israel
10) Russia

Each Summit, we’ve grown our Travel Support Program, where we cover
flights and accommodations for contributors who may not be sponsored to
make the trip:
• In Atlanta, the Foundation sponsored 21 people from 8 different
countries for a total investment of 40,000 USD
• In Paris, the Foundation sponsored 20 people from 10 different countries
for a total investment of 54,000 USD
• In Vancouver, the Foundation sponsored 28 people (7 female, 21 male)
from 14 countries for a total investment of 60,000 USD

The Foundation also offers discounted and complementary Summit
registration to University students, government and non-profit employees to
make the event accessible.

In addition to the Summits happening every six months, we have more than
75 user groups around the world hosting regular user group meetings. Many
of these groups host an "OpenStack Day" event in their region once per
year, and the Foundation not only helps sponsor and organize these events,
but also invests in trying to get a Staff member to attend or speak at each
event. We invest an approximately 100,000 USD in the regional user group
events, including these OpenStack Days and the annual birthday meetups each
year.

You can find many of these metrics in the 2014 Annual Report:
https://www.openstack.org/assets/reports/osf-annual-report-2014.pdf

wznoinsk: is it doable to get gender and other info from openstack
Communit Member profile (i.e: when you register on openstack.org you
select your gender) to extend let's say StackAlytics?

Women of OpenStack
Women continue to be an underrepresented group in terms of community
member demographics, Summit attendees and especially speakers. Percentage
of Women attendees at OpenStack Summits:
• 7% - Hong Kong, Nov 2013
• 9% - Atlanta, may 2014
• 10% - Paris, Nov 2014
• 10% - Vancouver, May 2015

The last few Summits, several community members have worked to grow the
Women of OpenStack (WOO) Program, which is planning several big acivities
for Vancouver. This week, there will be a Women of OpenStack networking
event sponsored by IBM and Intel on Sunday, we're sponsoring an "Allies
Workshop" hosted by the Ada Initaitive Monday afternoon, and there will be
a workshop happening Tuesday morning to identify actionable goals and plans
over the next year. Also all of the #vBrownBag lightning talk speaking
slots on Tuesday have been reserved for the Women of OpenStack. There is an
opportunity for a similar group of community members to build and support
diversity initiatives for OpenStack.

Additionally, the Foundation and OpenStack ecosystem companies have been
strong sponsors of the GNOME Outreach for Women Program (now known as
Outreachy). In 2014, the Foundation itself sponsored 4 interns, and the
greater community sponsored 12 interns. The most difficult investment is
coordination and time on behalf of mentors in the community, which we
greatly appreciate.

Additional areas I think the committee should consider focusing on and
investing in to improve diversity in our community are the global
Ambassadors program, publishing / providing visibility into more diversity
metrics, recruiting speakers for Summits and other events, and increased
investment and support for the internationalization (translations) team.

[OpenStack Foundation] [Diversity] Defining the diversity policy

Hi Kavit,

I just wanted to check in on the next steps for the diversity policy.
Unless I missed something (quite possible) I don't think our group --You,
ShillaSaebi, Rainya, Tristan, NikiAcosta and myself-- has had a follow-up
yet?

Thanks!

Hello everyone,

The Gold Members held a special election today to fill the vacant Gold Member space left by Nebula. I wanted to send out a quick note to let everyone know that NEC was selected as the Gold Director Selector for the remainder of 2015 and to welcome Tsugikazu Shibata of NEC to the Board of Directors.

Thank you all the Gold Member to put me on the board
and also sent me warm messages.
I will represent all Gold members from now.
As you all know that We will have OpenStack summit in Tokyo and
It is really a great opportunity for me as I'm located in Tokyo.
I will try to be a voice from Asia and Japan for both community
and users and reach out to the Board. I believe that will help
improve the board and OpenStack eco-system.
I am looking forward to working with all the Gold members and
also Board members.

[OpenStack Foundation] [Diversity] Stats on diversity in OpenStack

Hello,

I think one starting point is a snapshot (as much as we can) of what the
diversity is like in OpenStack. We have some stats in the etherpad about
the Summits -- is there a official document with those numbers?

Summit attendees is one metric, but includes a range of people in
non-technical roles and possibly not part of OpenStack.

Better metrics would include the active members of the OpenStack community
-- contributors, leaders and management. One measure of active members
would be the list of active technical contributors (ATC) which should
capture contributors to documentation and development of the projects. We
likely need a way to count those contribute in other ways, but for now the
ATC is a start.

I see that the OpenStack signup form asks about gender and location. When
was the gender question added? When was the location question added? My
concern is that if they were added recently that few records will have the
data.

2015 Metrics on Gender and Geography Diversity in OpenStack:

  1. How many total active technical contributors (ATC) are there?
    a. If I read http://www.stackalytics.com correctly, that would
    be 1316
  2. What is the total ATC breakdown by geography and gender?
  3. What is the per project ATC breakdown by geography and gender?
  4. What is the per company ATC breakdown by geography and gender?
  5. How many project team leads (PTL) are there?
  6. What is the PTL breakdown by geography and gender?
  7. How many OpenStack board of directors (BOD) members are there?
    a. https://www.openstack.org/foundation/board-of-directors/ has 21
  8. What is the BOD breakdown by geography and gender?
    a. https://www.openstack.org/foundation/board-of-directors/ shows
    possibly 2 women and 19 men.

Did I miss any OpenStack metrics? Who would be able to help get the data
for the stats?

Thanks!

· Mission Discussion and definition of Diversity - https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Diversity

  • Charter discussion: feedback from Vancouver was that the operational scope was too broad

  • Possible Definitions
    § [13:13:47] diversity - eliminate bias on the basis of age, race, creed, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status, and socioeconomic status.
    § [13:13:54] M-W.com: diversity, noun, : the quality or state of having many different forms, types, ideas, etc. : the state of having people who are different races or who have different cultures in a group or organization
    § [13:14:54] for me diversity is really about getting a variety of thought more than anything; so that any problem has lots of diferent viewpoints and experiences coloring the outcome; [13:16:04] and that variety comes from different disciplines (engineers, devs, qa, ux, ops, product managers) as well as cultural and gender backgrounds
    § Top areas of focus for diversity: GENDER (male to female ratio); GEOGRAPHIC (downloads, contribution, and attendance by country; what countries / regions have low or NO representation?); CULTURE
    § Other areas of future exploration: religion, age, disability

  • Discuss proposal to engage a Consultant/Coach to assist this work group
    · Review proposed work plan, gather feedback, and owners
    · Next Steps
    · Meeting Frequency

  • [13:45:09] And next step is have a meeting that is 12 hours different to this one, and include others before deciding on anything

  • [13:48:30] I wonder if we want to have weekly meetings, given the interest, and alternate them between US/EMEA-friendly and APAC/Japan-friendly?

  • [13:52:21] @eglute - hard to meet everyone's needs, but if we had 3 or 4 people in a core group for geographies who could serve as delegates, it might make it easier to get stuff done

  • [13:52:59] #action barrett to start 1-2 doodles to find the best times for us to meet?

  • · Interest/Need for alternating times to make the meetings globally accessible. Moving forward we'll use the foundation@lists.openstack.orgfoundation@lists.openstack.org mail list for work group discussions and meeting communications.

Action Items:
1)Define diversity policy
· volunteers:
· Target date for bringing draft to group for review: 2 weeks?
· Kavit Munshi (will lead + coordinate definition)
· ShillaSaebi
· Rainya
· Amandap
· Tristan
· Niki Acosta
· 2) Carol: Setup Doodles to find 2 good times for meeting every other week, alternating timing
· 3) NIki: Lead the process of getting nominations for Geo Ambassadors once the meeting times are set
· 4) Get charter ratified by BoD (review language objected to at Vancouver summit)
· 5)DiveristyStatement: prepare proposal to be presented to BoD to approve the formation of a diversity policy. Include wording in Code of Conduct (both of them). +1

Places doing "Diversity" well: Telstra, MIT

Proposed charter, as presented to the BoD in Vancouver:

May 15, 2015OpenStack Board Diversity Committee Charter
In an effort to assert and facilitate the incorporation of diversity policies into its overall strategy, the Board of Directors of the OpenStack Foundation is committed to fostering a more inclusive and welcoming place for all people to collaborate and drive innovation and design cutting-edge data center capabilities, while finding the best answers to our most pressing challenges.

This committee will sponsor and create programs that encourage diversity by identifying and removing the barriers that keep us from having a diverse, thriving community. The programs defined by this committee will apply to the Board of Directors, OpenStack Foundation, Technical Committee, PTLs, Developers and the entire OpenStack Community. Each program will have specific success metrics and the committee will provide regular updates on all programs to the Board as well as the Community.

Programs sponsored and/or created by the Diversity Committee will require Board of Directors approval. The committee will review existing Foundation programs and policies on regular basis to evaluate their performance and effectiveness. The committee will collaborate with the TC, User committee and the BoD to ensure that all programs are meeting their diversity goals.

Diversity is defined as all the ways people differ from one another including race, color, religion, sex, national origin, language, ancestry, age, disability, medical condition, genetic information, military and veteran status, marital status, pregnancy, gender, gender expression, gender identity, sexual orientation and other aspects. This includes elements such as personal background, experiences, education,thinking processes, approaches to problem solving and life experiences. Diversity takes into account similarities and differences in all individuals around the world and can involve multiple aspects, including geographic location, country of origin, economic class or position, cultural norms and traditional societal norms. The differences range from subtle nuances to very clear points of difference - this is the nature of diversity.

Charter Proposal by: Egle Sigler, Kavit Munshi, Imad Sousou

From Lauren Sell:

Summit Demographics & Community Building
Of course, the largest investment we make in global community building is moving the Summit location every six months. Changing locations and variables is an investment for the Foundation, but this practice dramatically impacts the makeup of our attendees and allows greater access to participate in the OpenStack community. For example, you can see the different geographical distribution across the four most recent Summits:

Hong Kong (Nov 2013) Summit Attendee Demographics (3,000 total attendees):
* 45% - APAC
* 41% - North America
* 12% - Europe
* 1% - Middle East
* 1% - Latin America

Hong Kong (Nov 2013) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:
* United States
* China
* Hong Kong
* Japan
* India
* United Kingdom
* Taiwan
* France
* Australia
* Korea

Atlanta Summit (May 2014) Attendee Demographics (4,500 total attendees):
* 81% North America
* 9% Europe
* 8% APAC
* 1% Middle East
* 1% Latin America

Atlanta (May 2014) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:
* United States
* Canada
* Japan
* France
* United Kingdom
* China
* India
* Israel
* Russia
* Germany

Paris Summit (Nov 2014) Attendee Demographics (4,700 total attendees):
* 47% Europe
* 35% North America
* 15% APAC
* 2% Middle East
* 1% Latin America

Paris (Nov 2014) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:
* United States
* France
* United Kingdom
* Germany
* China
* Japan
* India
* Canada
* Italy
* Switzerland

Vancouver Summit (May 2015) Attendee Demographics (5,600+ - updated count will be tallied on Monday night)
* 75% - North America
* 12% - Europe
* 10% - APAC
* 2% - Middle East
* 1% - Latin America

Vancouver (May 2015) top countries w/ the most attendees, descending order:
1) United States
2) Canada
3) Japan
4) UK
5) China
6) India
7) Germany
8) France
9) Israel
10) Russia

Each Summit, we've grown our Travel Support Program, where we cover flights and accommodations for contributors who may not be sponsored to make the trip:
* In Atlanta, the Foundation sponsored 21 people from 8 different countries for a total investment of 40,000 USD
* In Paris, the Foundation sponsored 20 people from 10 different countries for a total investment of 54,000 USD
* In Vancouver, the Foundation sponsored 28 people (7 female, 21 male) from 14 countries for a total investment of 60,000 USD

The Foundation also offers discounted and complementary Summit registration to University students, government and non-profit employees to make the event accessible.

In addition to the Summits happening every six months, we have more than 75 user groups around the world hosting regular user group meetings. Many of these groups host an "OpenStack Day" event in their region once per year, and the Foundation not only helps sponsor and organize these events, but also invests in trying to get a Staff member to attend or speak at each event. We invest an approximately 100,000 USD in the regional user group events, including these OpenStack Days and the annual birthday meetups each year.

You can find many of these metrics in the 2014 Annual Report: https://www.openstack.org/assets/reports/osf-annual-report-2014.pdf

wznoinsk: is it doable to get gender and other info from openstack Communit Member profile (i.e: when you register on openstack.org you select your gender) to extend let's say StackAlytics?

Women of OpenStack
Women continue to be an underrepresented group in terms of community member demographics, Summit attendees and especially speakers. Percentage of Women attendees at OpenStack Summits:
* 7% - Hong Kong, Nov 2013
* 9% - Atlanta, may 2014
* 10% - Paris, Nov 2014
* 10% - Vancouver, May 2015

The last few Summits, several community members have worked to grow the Women of OpenStack (WOO) Program, which is planning several big acivities for Vancouver. This week, there will be a Women of OpenStack networking event sponsored by IBM and Intel on Sunday, we're sponsoring an "Allies Workshop" hosted by the Ada Initaitive Monday afternoon, and there will be a workshop happening Tuesday morning to identify actionable goals and plans over the next year. Also all of the #vBrownBag lightning talk speaking slots on Tuesday have been reserved for the Women of OpenStack. There is an opportunity for a similar group of community members to build and support diversity initiatives for OpenStack.

Additionally, the Foundation and OpenStack ecosystem companies have been strong sponsors of the GNOME Outreach for Women Program (now known as Outreachy). In 2014, the Foundation itself sponsored 4 interns, and the greater community sponsored 12 interns. The most difficult investment is coordination and time on behalf of mentors in the community, which we greatly appreciate.

Additional areas I think the committee should consider focusing on and investing in to improve diversity in our community are the global Ambassadors program, publishing / providing visibility into more diversity metrics, recruiting speakers for Summits and other events, and increased investment and support for the internationalization (translations) team.

Thank you,

Egle

[OpenStack Foundation] Response to Sean Dague Question on CLA

Date: Thu, 18 Jun 2015 14:22:27 -0400

From: Sean Dague <sean@dague.netsean@dague.net>

To: "foundation@lists.openstack.orgfoundation@lists.openstack.org" <foundation@lists.openstack.orgfoundation@lists.openstack.org>

Subject: [OpenStack Foundation] Follow up on Future of CLA and DCO

Message-ID: <55830C63.2050708@dague.net55830C63.2050708@dague.net>

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8

Posting here about -

http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/foundation-board/2015-June/000080.html

because that's a board only post list.

As the next board meeting is only a month away, I just wanted to reiterate what I believe was said in the meeting, hopefully to be really crisp about what's being asked for.

The Board has currently been going through the process of working out a way that for people covered by a corporate CLA, they would not need to sign an ICLA, which would simply their entry in the community. This would cover over 90% of current contributors to OpenStack.

The suggestion was made that with such large coverage of the community, the Board would then feel comfortable that individuals, contributing as individuals, not under a corporate CLA, would be able to contribute under a DCO model. I believe this was called the "Johnathan Plan", and presented by Monty.

The TC representatives in the room (which was nearly all of us) strongly desire that end state. The TC has previously formally passed a formal resolution prefering the DCO over the CLA - https://github.com/openstack/governance/blob/master/resolutions/20140909-cla.rst.And would be happy to reaffirm that if there is any doubt that it remains the current view of the TC.

The TC would like to see this "plan of record" voted on and approved by the board:

Step 1: Remove the need for the ICLA by people contributing on behalf of an entity that has signed the corporate CLA.

Step 2: Remove the need for the ICLA by individuals not contributing under a CLA, because they are contributing on their own behalf (and instead accept their contributions under a DCO).

It's ok that Step 1 happens before Step 2 for implementation reasons, but we really want the go Board stamp that Step 2 is approved to happen.

And that sounded like it needed a formal, roll call vote.

If anyone remembers things differently, please respond. This has been a matter of great interest by many of the TC members, me included, for quite a while, and it seemed like we got very close to a real plan at the last joint meeting, and don't want to loose that progress.

        -Sean

Sean:

Sorry for the delay in responding. You are correct that under the Bylaws, the Board has the responsibility for determining how contributions are made to the OpenStack project. At the Board meeting in Vancouver, the Board discussed ways to deal with the concerns raised about the contributor license agreement process. As you noted, contributions made on behalf of corporations are made under the Corporate Contribution License Agreement ("CCLA") but all individuals whether making contributions on behalf of corporations or themselves, sign the Individual Contribution License Agreement ("ICLA"). During the Board/TC session, we also discussed whether the project can move from requiring all contributors to execute the ICLA and provide that individuals who contribute on behalf of themselves can use the Developer's Certificate of Origin ("DCO") instead of the ICLA. I believe that the general view of the Board is that this approach should be adopted, but the change needs to formally approved by the Board. The issue is on the agenda for the next Board meeting on July 28, 2015.
However, the Foundation is not waiting for formal Board approval of the ICLA issue to implement the significant technical changes required for the agreed-upon CLA process improvements. We will summarize those changes below. With regard to the CCLA process, the Foundation needs to automate the CCLA process to ensure (1) that all companies whose employees are contributing code/documentation have executed the CCLA and (2) that each company's contributing employees are appropriately associated with their employer. By identifying the individuals who are contributing under the CCLA, the Foundation can identify contributions made by individuals on their own behalf and implement the DCO process for such contributions In addition, the bug tracking system needs to be migrated from Launchpad before migrating Gerrit to openstackid. The Gerrit system is maintained by the Infra team and the majority of those resources are not on the Foundation staff. We understand that the necessary changes should be in place prior to the Mikata release process.

Here are the action items and their status or proposed dates of completion for this implementation:
1. The Foundation staff has completed the openstackid CCLA tracking dashboard including developer affiliations.
2. July 28: Approval of CCLA DCO approach
3. Prior to Mitaka release process
a. Foundation staff and Infra team will complete migration of Gerrit to openstackid;
b. Foundation staff confirms that signed CCLAs are captured by the system and that openstackid implements the CCLA tracking dashboard; and
c. Once confirmed, the system will be implemented fully

Thanks Egle for sending this out!

I somehow missed the last meeting invite so I wanted to reply (and add in
the [diversity] tag in case people are filtering for it) so the mailing
list has some activity leading up to the meeting.

Bonus content -- reminders that:

  • we have our own IRC meeting channel #openstack-diversity
  • the next meetings are:

    • July 23: 17:00 UTC -- this week!
    • July 30: 5:00 UTC

Thanks!

[OpenStack Foundation] Foundation Board of Directors Meeting

The Board of Directors of the OpenStack Foundation met today in Austin, TX. Many directors were able to make it in person with several also joining by telephone. The agenda was previously posted on the wiki: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/28July2015BoardMeeting

The meeting opened welcoming two new directors: Tsugikazu Shibata of NEC as a new Gold Director and Shane Wang of Intel as a new Individual Director. The Board also approved the minutes for the previous Board meeting which we will post to the wiki.

I provided an update from the Foundation staff on efforts during the first half of the year, including the Vancouver Summit and the new hires we have brought on for the Foundation (https://www.openstack.org/blog/2015/07/openstack-foundation-staffing-news-2/). We reviewed plans for the upcoming summit in Tokyo (https://www.openstack.org/summit/tokyo-2015/) and the second half of the year as well as our current open positions to hire. We also discussed updates to the OpenStack Compatible program to enhance the validation we are doing for products that integrate with OpenStack projects and progress on creating a professional certification program for OpenStack (https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Foundation/ProfessionalCertification).

After the staff update, the Board heard updates from several committees, including the diversity working group, the transparency committee, the DefCore working group and the legal affairs committee. During the DefCore session, the Board members approved a new DefCore specification, 2015.7, that adds in authentication requirements in addition to the previously required elements.

Fujitsu then presented their application for Gold Membership in the Foundation. The Board discussed the application in executive session and then in public session unanimously voted to approve Fujitsu as a new Gold Member.

Kyle Mestery, PTL of the Neutron networking project, then led a presentation and discussion on Neutron and the state of networking in OpenStack. Carol Barret and Shamail Tahir presented an update on the plans and efforts of the product working group (https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/ProductTeam). Finally the Board had a discussion about the new model for upstream project management (sometimes knows as the "big tent") and how it opens up opportunities for existing open source projects to become official OpenStack community projects. The Board also discussed some of the confusion that exists around the intersection of big tent and DefCore and talked about ways that we can work to clarify the current state.

For the evening, the Board is going to be joining the local Austin OpenStack community group for a meet up and 5 year anniversary celebration. Thanks to everyone for participating!

[OpenStack Foundation] Follow up on Future of CLA and DCO

As Mark McLoughlin noted, the Board has asked me to summarize this unexpected result for the list. Since I attended the Legal Affairs Committee meeting, I can also add more detail about that discussion. After I reported the proposed topic for the Board meeting at the Legal Affairs Committee and the likely decision by the board, several members of the Committee expressed concern that they were not aware of this proposal and needed more time to consider it. At the time, it was not clear if these concerns were sufficiently significant to delay the decision at the Board meeting.

At the Board meeting, several Board members expressed concern that their inhouse counsel had not had the opportunity to review this proposed change. The Board considered the delay of the decision until the next Board meeting and then decided to do so. Given the importance of the decision, the Board wanted to ensure that all of the members of the Board had the opportunity to consult with their inhouse counsel. One important element in the decision was that several lawsuits have been filed to enforce FOSS licenses (mostly in Germany) in the last year which could change the views of some companies about the potential risks of employing the DCO in the contribution process (the case against VMware is the most widely known). However, the Board made clear that the decision would be made at the next Board meeting and that any discussion with inhouse counsel would need to be completed by that date. To assist inhouse counsel in understanding the issues, the Board asked me to provide a presentation to all inhouse counsel of Board members who wish to join (not just the members of the Legal Affairs Committee). Since lawyers expect to have a private discussion, this presentation will be limited to inhouse counsel. I will provide the materials that I prepare for the discussion of inhouse counsel to the members of this list. If we have sufficient interest, I will provide the presentation to the community. Just a reminder of my role which is to represent the Foundation, not a particular company.

The Board approved the continued technical preparation for implementing DCO for individual contributions. Moreover, the Board was also influenced by the fact that the deferral of this Board decision to the next meeting would not delay the implementation of the DCO procedure, if approved, because the earliest that the DCO could be implemented would be at the time of the Mitaka release.

[OpenStack Foundation] [Diversity] OpenStack Diversity Working Group Meeting Thursday August 6 Recap

Here are the notes from our meeting: http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/meetings/diversity_working_group_5/2015/diversity_working_group_5.2015-08-06-17.01.html

Take aways:

We have also started 3 different projects:

Hi all,

I just want to share a couple of findings about getting OpenStack data.

Regarding consuming the Meetup API, it seems like the key used for authenticate that service is restricting the results of the search. I’ve opened a bug[1] in their portal to verify that functionality but I’m not sure if they have a SLA for answering those questions. If someone has an account in meetup from other country, I can provide the set of instructions to double-check my theory.

By other hand, something that I found interesting is a web site[2] that takes screenshots of some sites. I used to understand the growing of OpenStack[3] and these are the results:

    Groups  Members Interested      Cities  Countries

1/29/12 15 1,927 332 12 6
6/30/12 25 8,648 1,050 21 10

Thanks for leading the next meeting Amy!

I'm confused about part of the agenda though. Both the Diversity Data

and Diversity Survey

teams
are underway. The core groups were started Meeting 5 (Aug 6th) and both
teams are working towards their goals w/ actions items that have an Aug 27
due date. Shouldn't this be an update from them?

Also there's no mention of the Code of Conduct

sub-committee, can we have their update added to the agenda as well?

Thanks,
Amanda

[Foundation Board] OpenStack Foundation Tax Exempt Status

Hi everyone,

I'm very happy to report that after a lengthy process with the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS), including an initial denial and an appeal, the OpenStack Foundation has been granted 501c6 tax exempt status. This is clear recognition of the positive impact that our Foundation is having on the cloud computing industry.

While it may seem like a small administrative matter, the long term impact is very positive for the efforts of the Foundation and the industry, allowing us to devote more resources to ensuring the cloud revolution is truly open to everyone. We also hope this outcome for our Foundation benefits other open source organizations pursuing tax exempt status with the IRS now and in the future.

Thank you to everyone in the OpenStack community and the greater open source world who supported us through the process.

[OpenStack Foundation] [Diversity] re: Diversity Workgroup APAC 2015-08-27

In this meeting, rolandchan requested feedback on a survey. I've not
been following along so if I'm talking nonsense, please disregard.

Survey draft: https://drive.google.com/open?id=19P117V1OxZgRuPP6S2nwNCH6cC6v0jwwAaFswwLNqTc

  • The survey omits many aspects of diversity, EG religion,
    ethnicity, disability. Maybe I'm only seeing a small piece of the
    final survey? IMO a single large survey will be more successful than
    many small ones.
  • Q2 excludes asexuals. GSRM (gender, sexual or romantic minority) is a
    more inclusive term than LGBT, I suggest rewriting in those terms.

That's the doc. Thanks for the input Alexis.

I was undecided on whether survey fatigue would set in with a long survey.
I'm happy to hear other opinions on optimal survey length. With extra
length I would also like to include questions on the importance of
diversity to respondents and perhaps to even ask them rate the diversity
related programs to date.

On the the second point, I was unaware of this term. Thanks for pointing it
out. I'll go so some reading and get back to you.

Re: [OpenStack Foundation] [Women-of-openstack] [OpenStack][Women of OpenStack] Kick-off Meeting Info

Using a phone/VoIP call was not because the group "would rather
have conference calls because they're disinclined to learn how to
conduct meetings the way the rest of OpenStack does". For one
OpenStack conducts meetings in many ways including IRC,
face-to-face, over Etherpad and using voice/VoIP calls.

For the most part, non-IRC meetings (aside from ~quarterly in-person
get-togethers at the Design Summit and some mid-cycle sprints) have
mostly catered to the business sector of our community. First and
foremost, OpenStack is a community around free and open software and
so its primary modes of communication are in plaintext (mailing
lists and IRC), a long-standing tradition evolved through decades of
trial and error within our predecessor communities who determined
that these were far and above the most broadly accessible and
consumable channels through which to interact.

In particular using the phrases "disinclined to learn" and "it
wasn't a substantial hurdle after all." comes across poorly.

My sincerest apologies, I simply wanted to underscore that the
biggest hurdle I've seen for newcomers is a fear of new tools. The
world of free software is culturally dissimilar to most
corporate/business settings and the tools and protocols its
inhabitants have adopted are by necessity not what outsiders may be
used to for other sorts of interaction. OpenStack is a little
unusual in that the number of new recruits from purely corporate
cultures is higher than for a typical free project, and so we have
to work even harder to introduce them to our seemingly alien tools,
expectations and ideals to avoid fragmentation and loss of communal
identity.

One of the points of this group is to identify what are the
barriers women face and how can we help. Women brought up concerns
about IRC as being a barrier from a technical and group
interaction standpoint. We are evaluating the best options to
address those concerns.
[...]

I'd be thrilled to work out ways we can make IRC and mailing lists
more welcoming and usable for everyone. I worry that a push to
alternative tools and communication channels will only serve to
alienate already marginalized groups within our community, further
dividing us.

for IRC to have parity with other chatting clients or to be useful
in the way we (OpenStack) uses it requires 3+ additional systems
be installed or understood (bouncer/proxy, cloak, etherpad,
eavesdrop etc).

Sure for day-to-day communication either a bouncer/proxy or some
dedicated connection for the machine where your IRC client is
running is helpful though not especially required. When it comes to
holding weekly meetings on the other hand, that's almost immaterial.

Cloaks are also not necessary (I don't use one for example) but are
also not software, you just need to request a "cloak" for your
account from the IRC network administrators if you want to maintain
some level of anonymity. To put this in perspective, we don't
anonymize the origins of messages to our mailing lists either, and
the information contained in the SMTP headers distributed to all
subscribers is equally as identifying of the message author (if not
more so).

It's not clear what you're implying with etherpad and eavesdrop, as
those are merely Web sites our community maintains. Etherpad is
(infrequently in my experience) used as a side-channel for
collaborative editing during some IRC meetings but more often simply
referred to just as any other Web page. Eavesdrop only comes into
play when you're referring someone to logs of a past meeting or of a
discussion which took place in some other logged channel, or to a
copy of the calendar for all our scheduled meetings, and is again
just a page with information on it. While these are of course added
conveniences, neither is integral to actually holding a meeting in
IRC.

It's painful to setup and use, creating a complexity that is often
best handled with in-person help. It would be great to have your
and the other Project Infrastructure team members experience and
help getting interested newbies ramped up and comfortable with the
OpenStack tools.
[...]

Community and Project Infrastructure is led by a (always growing but
still) very small group of individuals and while we're happy to
provide pointers and assistance, the sort of one-on-one training
you're describing already exists:

https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/OpenStack_Upstream_Training

If not identical, it's close (perhaps a superset) of what it sounds
like you've envisioned. We should first see what can be done to
increase availability of that program and, if needed, vary the
content and timetable to suit your particular audience.

I don't know exactly. I was thinking between 1000 and 2000, but my
stats expertise is weak, so I could be under/over-doing it.

The g-doc is just an easy tool for drafting the survey, but it's
less useful for actually running it. I hadn't realised it was
blocked. I'll use etherpad next time (hopefully I won't be drafting
many surveys after this).

As per Mark's email, I was planning to use whatever the Foundation
typically uses. If there are tools that are blocked in certain
jurisdictions we definitely need to know about them so we can
maximise our potential reach.

Thanks,

Roland

    My intent was to randomly sample and then offer an incentive.
    Thus we would, hopefully get a very high response rate from a
    random group. Asking the entire population with an incentive is
    definitely not a good plan as you say ____
    In terms of who we sample the answer is I think everyone.____
    We get a sample from each of the groupings, ATC would be one of
    them obviously, but we also want to survey non-ATC community
    members (I believe there are two classes of these). It would be
    great if we could also request all members of the PTL, TC, Board
    and Foundation staff groups to participate.____
    I would not want to send a message that ATCs are the only
    population worth surveying. Our charter is much broader than
    that.____

        TBH neither of the alternating timeslots works with my
        schedule :(

        A couple more thoughts though on the survey design ...

        Up-thread someone suggested an incentive for participation.

        I'm not an expert on sampling methodologies, but I suspect
        such an
        incentive would actually amplify distortions due to
        self-selection.

        Instead, it would be sounder from a methodological
        perspective to
        randomly select a subset of the population to survey, rather
        than
        relying on reactions to an incentive.

        Which bring us to the question of what that "population"
        actually
        is here, i.e. where are we most interested in
        measuring/promoting
        diversity?

        I would lean towards the ATC community, since there's a
        requirement
        to show some minimal concrete involvement (i.e. land a
        single patch).

        Whereas the obvious alternative, the Foundation membership roll,
        anecdotally includes many "paper" members with little
        substantive
        involvement in the community.

        Also I'd recommend removing the question on religion from
        the survey.
        To my eyes, the question seems oddly out-of-place in a
        survey to be
        undertaken within a technical community. The levels of
        adherence in
        such a community may differ naturally from the overall
        population in
        ways that make it difficult to reason over any data produced.

        Eoghan

[OpenStack Foundation] [Diversity] Call for mentors Outreachy Dec-March 2016

Diversity WG - This seems to be well aligned with our direction and I wanted to make sure everyone sees it.
Any thoughts on actions we could take to support and increase the synergy with our goals?
Thanks
Carol

From: Victoria Martínez de la Cruz [mailto:victoria@vmartinezdelacruz.com]
Sent: Monday, September 14, 2015 9:12 AM
To: Openstack-internships; OpenStack Development Mailing List
Subject: [openstack-dev] Call for mentors Outreachy Dec-March 2016

Hi everyone,

OpenStack will join next round of the Outreachy internships and we need you help: we are looking for full-time contributors willing to share some of their time, knowledge and experience to make our open-source organization more diverse and have the opportunity to meet new talents.

What is Outreachy

Outreachy helps people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software get involved. Read more in https://www.gnome.org/outreachy/.

OpenStack has been participating in this internships since Jan-Apr 2013, and we have had really good results: we got more full-time contributors, we got lots of good quality contributions, interns had the opportunity to give a great step in their professional careers and also it has been an enriching experience for everyone involved with the internship. More information about OpenStack participation in Outreachy can be find in https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Outreachy.

Applications open next September 22nd, and the deadline for applications is October 27th. https://wiki.gnome.org/Outreachy/2015/DecemberMarch

TLDR

Contributors interested on mentoring in Outreachy, please feel free to ask any question and ask for further directions here or in #openstack-opw in Freenode.

Try to find and propose a task for the next couple of months for your mentee. The task should be able to be finished on three months. Add this idea in this wiki https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Internship_ideas.

Please join #openstack-opw as well, to welcome applicants and help them with their setups.

Another way to get in touch is through the internships mailing list, http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-internships.

Mentors

Time requirements

Being a mentor shouldn't take a lot of time from your working week. Mentors from previous rounds organized differently: you can schedule a weekly meeting to catch up with your mentee latest work, questions and next steps; some other prefer having a daily short meeting; you choose how to organize your agenda.

Consider that different mentees will need different guidance, but we aim to work with proactive and independent people. This qualities are defined during the application process, so make sure to participate actively in this so you make sure you get a mentee you can work with.

Tasks

Mentors are supposed to act as a channel for mentees with the rest of the community. You should be able to help them understand the community workflow (tools, milestones), introduce them to the team you are working with (so they also have other people to learn from), help them to gain confidence and participate of the weekly meetings.

You are not supposed to teach them the basics (say, we cannot have people that cannot program in Python), but you should be able to point them in the right direction with the tools we use in the community and they should be able to learn at their own pace.

Mentees

Time requirements

It is a full-time internship, so mentees are expected to work 40 hours per week in the assigned project.

Tasks

Mentees are supposed to devote their time on learning about the community, getting familiar with the tools used to contribute to OpenStack, understanding the basics of the code base of the project they are working on and finishing the assigned task before the internship ends. They are also encouraged to help with bug triaging, bug fixing and code reviewing. All this should be shared in a personal blog mentees have to set up when they start with their internships.

Thanks all,

Victoria

[OpenStack Foundation] [Diversity] September 17 Meeting Reminder

Hi Team – Our next meeting is tomorrow, Thursday September 17 at 1700 UTC on #openstack-diversity.

The etherpad for the session is here: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/OpenStackDiversity.11

Hope to see you there.

In case I don't make it, here is my first draft introductory note for
survey. It attempts to explain the reasons for the survey and deal with
privacy issues. Happy to have it returned to me in a completely different
state!

Roland

The OpenStack Foundation has a deep commitment to fostering the diversity
and inclusivity of the OpenStack community. The Foundation has created a
Diversity Working group to formulate, deliver and monitor a program to
increase the diversity of the community.

As part of this effort, the Diversity Working Group is surveying the entire
OpenStack community to establish a baseline view of the community. This
baseline will allow the working group and the community to measure how
successful the diversity and inclusion programs are over time.

This survey asks you, members of the OpenStack community, a variety of
questions some of which relate to topics which you may view as personal and
private. It is not the intent of the survey to invade the privacy of the
community, it is simply to gather information on the make up of the
community.

Should you not wish to disclose any piece of information please do not
answer that question. The survey will protect the anonymity of each
respondent and all individual answers will not be able to be tied to any
particular respondent.

[OpenStack Foundation] [Openstack][Diversity] Code of Conduct Question Follow-up

Hi Jonathan - In a recent Diversity team meeting, there was a discussion on the process for handling any concerns that are raised regarding Code Of Conduct violations. People are interested to better understand who receives the emails, what process is used to review and determine follow-on actions. Can you provide an overview of how this is handled?

Thanks
Carol

Hi Carol,

There are 2 basic codes of conducts: the overall Community Code of Conduct and then one specific to the Summit. The Summit one deals with the issues that are specific to an on-site event with thousands of attendees, speakers, and sponsors and the associated content and events happening. It has a detailed description of the contact points and response process for complaints. You can view the current version here: https://www.openstack.org/summit/tokyo-2015/code-of-conduct

The more general Community Code of Conduct is located at http://www.openstack.org/legal/community-code-of-conduct/ and points people to contact the Executive Director with my email address.

We have only had a small number of complaints that have been escalated to me, about two to three per year. I review each one and have sometimes involved our corporate counsel for certain issues. Also, depending on the nature of the complaint and working with the individual who submitted it, other leaders from the community (technical leaders, community managers, other Foundation staff) may join in to help resolve any concerns.

Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] DCO topic at October board meeting

Hello!

I was just looking over the current draft agenda for the October board
meeting here:

https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/26Oct2015BoardMeeting

I see that the DCO topic is not on the agenda for the formal board
meeting, but is instead in the joint TC/Board section for an update.

I left the last board meeting with the understanding and expectation
that we would be having a vote on this topic in October. The vote was
postponed last time as some felt their company's legal counsel needed
additional time to vet the issue, but that it could be done by October.
It was also said that it was no big deal to postpone the vote since it
would not postpone the implementation since pre-req work was still being
done.

We don't have official minutes of the last board meeting, as we'll be
voting to approve them in October. The meeting overview from Jonathan
didn't cover this topic:

http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/foundation/2015-July/002036.html

but it was covered in a follow-up by Mark McLoughlin and Mark Radcliffe:

http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/foundation/2015-July/002037.html
http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/foundation/2015-July/002038.html

A few important quotes from Mark Radcliffe's summary:

"The Board considered the delay of the decision until the next Board
meeting and then decided to do so."

...

"However, the Board made clear that the decision would be made at the
next Board meeting and that any discussion with inhouse counsel would
need to be completed by that date."

...

"The Board approved the continued technical preparation for implementing
DCO for individual contributions. Moreover, the Board was also
influenced by the fact that the deferral of this Board decision to the
next meeting would not delay the implementation of the DCO procedure, if
approved, because the earliest that the DCO could be implemented would
be at the time of the Mitaka release."

Based on that understanding, I'd like to see this on the regular board
meeting agenda with a plan for a vote. If there is reason why it can
not or should not be, I would love to hear an update from anyone
involved in discussions that have happened since the last board meeting.

Thanks,

--

Alan, Eileen, Mark,

I see there's now a 20 minute slot on the board agenda for this topic.
Could you confirm whether the intent is to reach a decision as planned
during this time slot?

Thanks in advance,
Mark.

[OpenStack Foundation] Foundation help running a developer survey?

I proposed (to the openstack-dev mailing list) about 7 months back
that we should run a developer survey, which got a positive reaction.
I haven't followed up and actioned this for a few reasons.

Firstly, there was some academic mail-bombing everyone inane surveys
every week or two at that time, and I didn't want to burn folk out
with yet another survey.

Secondly, and I think more importantly, I realised that really we want
a few things here that are not suited to a one-off by a random member
of the community:
- If the questions are useful, we should refresh the data regularly.
Not at the frequency of the user survey, but perhaps yearly?
- Secondly, we'll need a home for the data - and assuming its
properly anonymous/anonymised - ongoing open access for us to ask
questions about it
- The foundation already has a track record for doing both those
things with the user survey...

So, I'm wondering - would the foundation be interested/willing to help
the developer community out by running such a survey across all ATC's
(minimally, perhaps a wider net with 'are you an ATC' as a question
would be good too) yearly-or-so ? I'd be delighted to help seed the
survey with initial questions (from me and the folk that replied to my
earlier proposal).

[Foundation Board] Outreachy: Call for Funding, Mentors

Hi everyone,

Quick update on the Outreachy https://www.gnome.org/outreachy/ program, including a request for funding and volunteer mentors. For those of you who are not aware, Outreachy helps people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software get involved by matching interns with established mentors in the upstream community.

There have been a record 30 intern applicants and 11 volunteer mentors for OpenStack this next cycle, which will take place Dec 7, 2015 - March 7, 2016. The OpenStack program coordinators could use a few more volunteer mentors, and there has been specific interest in Ceilometer, Cinder, Horizon, Murano, Neutron, Nova, Sahara and Zaqar. You can learn more about what is expected from mentors and how to apply here: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Outreachy/Mentors https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Outreachy/Mentors

Additionally, the Foundation agreed to sponsor five interns, but we could use some additional sponsors to help support the large increase in OpenStack applicants. The sponsorship cost is 6,500 USD per intern, which provide them a stipend for the three-month program. You can learn more about sponsorship here: https://wiki.gnome.org/Outreachy/Admin/InfoForOrgs#Action https://wiki.gnome.org/Outreachy/Admin/InfoForOrgs#Action

I personally believe Outreachy is one of the most important and effective diversity efforts we’ve invested in to date. We’ve had some amazing graduates become long-term contributors to our community. I cannot give enough praise and thanks to the program coordinators (Victoria Martinez de la Cruz and Mahati Chamarthy for OpenStack), volunteer mentors, and sponsors for making it possible.

Please help spread the word. If you are interested in becoming a mentor or sponsoring an intern, please contact Victoria (victoria@vmartinezdelacruz.com victoria@vmartinezdelacruz.com) or me (lauren@openstack.org lauren@openstack.org).

Thanks,

Please allow me to introduce you to Kavit Munshi, our OpenStack

Kavit has a wide range of contacts with people all over the country from
South to North - so a really great guy to know to get plugged in to the

@Kavit, could you talk with Swapnil about how to fit more online
activities into the Indian User Group?

There's one piece of incomplete information in the Narita document:
unless you're not returning to Narita, it's a lot cheaper to buy a
return ticket at Narita airport for the NEX. The offer is ¥4,000 for
the return vs ¥3,190 for the single (making ¥6,380 for there and back).
This offer is only available to foreign nationals (they'll want a
passport):

[OpenStack Foundation] January 26, 2016 Board of Directors Meeting

Hi everyone,

Today the new 2016 Board of Directors was seated during the first phone meeting of the year, and the agenda is posted online: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/26Jan2016BoardMeeting

We have quite a few new board members from the Individual and Gold Director elections, so we spent some time with introductions and onboarding. New Board members who introduced themselves include Anni Lai, Kenji Kaneshige, Mark Baker, Manju Ramanathpura, and Allison Randal. The Board noted and was very pleased with the increase in gender and geographical diversity with new representation.

Next, Egle Sigler presented an update from the DefCore committee, including a proposed process change and update to the 2016.1 DefCore advisory guidelines for OpenStack Powered product testing, which will include new capabilities from Neutron, Glance and Cinder. The Board also approved a new appointed member to the User Committee, Edgar Magana, who will replace Subbu Allamaraju, and serve alongside Shilla Saebi and Jon Proulx.

The Technical Committee has been working to update the community mission statement, and Russell Bryant presented their proposed changes. This spurred a good conversation among the Board about addressing interoperability, end users and continuing to support technologies like bare metal and containers. The conversation is expected to continue on the Foundation mailing list.

Thanks for your continued support. We're looking forward to a great 2016 for OpenStack!

Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] Updating the OpenStack Mission Statement

OpenStack has a mission statement that has held up pretty well for the
life of the project so far. That mission statement is:

to produce the ubiquitous Open Source Cloud Computing platform that will
meet the needs of public and private clouds regardless of size, by being
simple to implement and massively scalable.

Sometime late last year, a discussion emerged about updating the mission
statement to include some key themes that have become an important focus
of our community.

  • interoperability
  • end users

At the join board + TC meeting at the OpenStack Summit in Tokyo, the two
groups agreed that working on an update seemed reasonable and that we
wanted both groups to agree on those updates.

A few weeks ago, the TC came up with a proposed updated mission statement.

http://governance.openstack.org/resolutions/20160106-mission-amendment.html

That proposal is:

to produce the ubiquitous Open Source Cloud Computing platform that enables
building interoperable public and private clouds regardless of size, by being
simple to implement and massively scalable while serving the cloud users'
needs.

The board discussed this proposal during the board meeting last week.
This spawned a good discussion. There was a desire that we continue
that discussion on the foundation mailing list to incorporate additional
feedback.

One suggestion was that changing "that will meet the needs of public and
private clouds" to "that enables building ... public and private clouds"
was a downgrade. The suggestion was to restore the original wording, as
it sounded like a more firm commitment.

The second major piece of feedback was that some people wanted to
somehow incorporate that OpenStack is not limited to a specific set of
technologies. Specific talk of bare metal, VMs, and containers were
brought up as examples, but people wanted to somehow reflect that the
platform is evolving with major technology trends.

Rob Esker provided this suggested update which incorporates that feedback:

"To produce and progressively evolve the ubiquitous Open Source Cloud
Computing platform that meets the needs of public and private clouds
regardless of size, by being simple to implement, massively scalable,
interoperable, and easy to use.”

(Note: Rob's proposal didn't include the final comma. I added it. Feel
free to debate the merits of the oxford comma if you wish.)

If I missed anything or if anyone would like to provide additional
feedback, please respond on list.

I'm actually pretty happy with Rob's proposal. I'd like to hear what
others think so we can continue moving forward.

Thanks!

I think the TC approach of sticking with the general structure of the original* while making substantive additions.

With respect to Rob’s version, I think it hits the mark. I support moving forward with it.

*Disclaimer: I helped write the original mission statement so consider myself biased :)

[OpenStack Foundation] OpenStack Foundation 2015 Annual Report

Hi everyone,

We have published the OpenStack Foundation 2015 Annual Report: http://www.openstack.org/assets/reports/osf-annual-report-2015-FINAL.pdf

It includes reports from the Foundation Staff, Technical Committee, Board Committees and some Working Groups as well. Our community covered a lot of ground last year, and it’s motivating to see the progress.

In addition to delivering to software release and shifting to a new technical governance model, we were able to launch the first interoperability testing program for OpenStack Powered products, building on the work of the DefCore committee which will continue to evolve and improve the program. We launched the Project Navigator based on tags developed by the Technical Committee and User Committee to simplify the project landscape for users. We forged new relationships with adjacent communities like OPNFV and Kubernetes to address important new markets, and we saw working groups within the community like the Enterprise WG and Product WG grow their influence. Finally, we were able to secure our IRS 501c6 tax-exempt status, which was a lengthy process and major event for the broader open source community.

With more than 35,000 individual members, the OpenStack community continues to grow and tackle new challenges.

Thanks to all the contributors who helped put the report together,

Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] Board of Directors Meeting

Hi everyone,

Today the Board of Directors met in in person alongside the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit. It was a packed agenda with some great discussions on a variety of topics.

Meeting agenda: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/29Mar2016BoardMeeting

First, the diversity working group reported some concern about a lack of participation in meetings and activities, and roadblocks due to other dependencies on the Foundation staff or community resources. It also seems like there’s not been strong or centralized communication around all of the diversity and mentoring activities already happening (for example, at the Austin Summit https://www.openstack.org/summit/austin-2016/mentoring-and-diversity/). We agreed to find an internal champion on the Foundation staff to help support the efforts and communicate activities that are already in flight—like Upstream University, Outreachy internships, travel support program, etc.—that support the goals and work streams of the diversity working group.

Next the Board approved Rob Esker and Anni Lai and chair and vice chair respectively of the the New Member Committee. The Defcore Committee then shared an ongoing discussion around taking more ownership of the interoperability tests and asked the board for input on how to proceed.

Allison Randall then presented some ideas around recognizing non-code contributors as “Active Community Contributors.” The idea lines up well with a new working group spun the User Committee recently spun up to recognize non-ATC contributions (https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/NonATCRecognition), and the two groups will work together to help determine criteria and awards for the different types of contributors that are incredibly valuable to our community overall.

Next we discussed future Summits, including breaking out project team design sessions in a separate event, and focusing planning and working sessions at the Summit on more strategic and cross-project conversations. We also discussed future Summit locations as we’re working to lock down the Summits for 2017, and should be able to share more specifics soon.

Russell Bryant then presented an update to the OpenStack mission statement proposed by the Technical Committee to specifically address interoperability and end users. The Board approved the following updated mission statement that the Technical Committee had previously approved:

"To produce a ubiquitous Open Source Cloud Computing platform that is easy to use, simple to implement, interoperable between deployments, works well at all scales, and meets the needs of users and operators of both public and private clouds."

Finally, Mark Collier kicked off a forum for more strategic discussions about the future of OpenStack. The Board had a lightning round of brainstorming sessions to discuss interoperability & product strategy, NFV and networking, one platform for containers, VMs & bare metal, and community health & culture. The conversations will continue at the Austin Summit board meeting. Look forward to seeing everyone there the last week of April!

Thanks,
Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] [magnum] Seek advices for a licence issue

Hi all,

A brief introduction to myself. I am the Magnum Project Team Lead (PTL). Magnum is the OpenStack container service. I wrote this email because the Magnum team is seeking clarification for a licence issue for shipping third-party software (DCOS [1] in particular) and I was advised to consult OpenStack Board of Directors in this regards.

Before getting into the question, I think it is better to provide some backgroup information. A feature provided by Magnum is to provision container management tool on top of a set of Nova instances. One of the container management tool Magnum supports is Apache Mesos [2]. Generally speaking, Magnum ships Mesos by providing a custom cloud image with the necessary packages pre-installed. So far, all the shipped components are open source with appropriate license, so we are good so far.

Recently, one of our contributors suggested to extend the Mesos support to DCOS [3]. The Magnum team is unclear if there is a license issue for shipping DCOS, which looks like a close-source product but has community version in Amazon Web Services [4]. I want to know what are the appropriate actions Magnum team should take in this pursuit, or we should stop pursuing this direction further? Advices are greatly appreciated. Please let us know if we need to provide further information. Thanks.

[2] http://mesos.apache.org/

Their EULA at https://docs.mesosphere.com/community-edition-eula/
indicates (item 4 subpart ii):

"Licensee will not (and will not allow any third party to) [...]
(ii) sell, assign, distribute, provide, lease, lend, disclose,
use for timesharing or service bureau purposes, or otherwise use
or allow others to use for the benefit of any third party, any
Licensed Software (except as expressly and specifically
authorized by Mesosphere)."

So without explicit permission from Mesosphere it doesn't seem like
the OpenStack community including Magnum developers can legally
redistribute DCOS Community Edition at all, regardless of whether
it's within the bounds of our community norms (which I also feel
like it isn't).

It was really two separate conversations that got conflated in the
summary. One conversation was just being supportive of bare metal, VMs,
and containers within the OpenStack umbrella. The other conversation
started with Monty talking about his work on shade, and how it wouldn't
exist if more APIs were focused on the way users consume the APIs, and
less an expression of the implementation details of each project.
OpenStackClient was mentioned as a unified CLI for OpenStack focused
more on the way users consume the CLI. (OpenStackSDK wasn't mentioned,
but falls in the same general category of work.)

i.e. There wasn't anything new in the conversation, it was more a matter
of the developers/TC members on the board sharing information about work
that's already happening.

Re: [OpenStack Foundation] [openstack-dev] [board][tc][all] One Platform – Containers/Bare Metal? (Re: Board of Directors Meeting)

I think that we should absolutely not do this. We are not a good
framework for providing individual lightweight containers. Nobody
wants us to delivery individual lightweight containers. Like,
literally no humans are saying "kubernetes sucks, it would be so much
better if we could use our containers via the OpenStack APIs"

OpenStack is a great system for getting computers. It has excellent
driver support for interfacing with storage, networking and baremetal
hardware provided by all of our vendors. As such, it makes for a GREAT
infrastructure abstraction layer on top of which someone can run mesos,
kube or swarm, should those things be thing they desire.

This is one of the reasons magnum is useful and nova-docker is not.
Magnum is a thing that allows one to create a k8s cluster on top of your
openstack with good integration. Add in things like kuryr and you've got
a really cool thing that adds value to both OpenStack and to kubernetes.

Saying:

nova boot --flavor=docker --image=ubuntu-trusty

Sounds like the world's worst way to get a docker container - especially
when:

docker run -it ubutnu:trusty /bin/bash

is the easiest thing to run in the world.

How about we focus on delivering computer like VMs, and actual bare
metal computers - and providing excellent integration point for things
like k8s, swarm, mesos, cloudfoundry and openshift? Doesn't that sound
like something we can excel at?

On 04/13/2016 08:49 AM, Fox, Kevin M wrote:

It partially depends on if your following lightweight container
methodology. Can nova api support unix sockets or bind mounts between
containers in the same pod? Would it be reasonable to add that
functionality? Its pretty different to novas usual use cases.

Agreed.

IMO, OpenStack is an open framework to different technologies and use
cases. Different architectures for different things make sense. Some may
say that using nova to launch docker images with hypervisor is weird,

[OpenStack Foundation] Summit split

Looking at the agenda at https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/6PuSKyUOHk for the TC/UC/Board meeting, there is no item for the potential split of the summit/design summit.

When do we need to make the decision by in order to plan future locations ?

My understanding (which is likely wrong) from the last meeting was that
there was no requested decision from the board and that it was being
handled by the foundation staff as part of their operational duties.

[OpenStack Foundation] April 24 Board of Directors Meeting

Hi everyone,

Last week before the OpenStack Summit Austin, the Board of Directors convened to discuss a variety of topics, as well as participate in a joint meeting with the Technical Committee and User Committee.

First, we kicked off the meeting with an update on the Summit metrics (more than 7,500 registered from 60+ countries), the launch of the Certified OpenStack Administrator exam (http://www.openstack.org/coa) and the Foundation P&L, which is tracking well for the year.

Next the Board heard an update from the User Experience working group, who conducted usability studies last week. This was followed by an update from the DefCore committee, who are preparing their next slate of capabilities for review in the August board meeting and working with the Tempest team and community to define new tests.

Finally, EasyStack and UnitedStack, two startup companies based in China, presented their applications to become Gold Members of the Foundation. The Board approved both companies, excited about expanding our reach in the China market.

We then kicked off the joint meeting with the TC and UC which covered a lot of strategic topics, including contribution trends, infrastructure & testing management, evolving the Design Summit format and how OpenStack can provide a single platform for VMs, bare metal and containers. The product working group also talked about a new potential process for tracking user stories throughout the development process.

Thank you to everyone for your support and for the engagement throughout the week on these and other important discussions.

Thanks,
Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] [OpenStack][Diversity] Doodle poll to schedule next Diversity Work Group Team meeting

Hi All - It was great to meet with some of you at the Summit in Austin. Honestly, going into the Summit, I didn't think there was a lot of energy in our Community around this topic. Coming out of the Summit, the earnest and passionate discussions we had has created a renewed sense of purpose. I hope we can continue the discussion on issues, actions to address and owners to drive in upcoming team meetings.

The Doodle link below is to identify a time for the team to meet next week. Pls add your information to the Doodle by EOD Thursday (Pacific time). I will send out the winner, along with agenda and logistics.

I suggest we not use real time meetings as the primary mechanism for moving
things forward. We've tried and failed to have rotating meeting times.

Judging by previous efforts, there is probably going to be less value in
real time discussion than there is in people taking and performing actions,
the product of which can be reviewed by the WG at their leisure.

The code of conduct is a perfect example of this. It just needs to be drafted,
reviewed for a week or two and then forwarded to the Foundation for
approval and adoption. Using Gdoc (or something else with review features.
For the love of dog, not gerrit please) rather than an etherpad would be
preferable.

[OpenStack Foundation] [OpenStack][Diversity] How to become a member of the OpenStack Diversity Work Group

Hello,

My name is Djimeli Konrad a computer science student from the University of
Buea Cameroon, Africa. I just started contributing to OpenStack but I
have been contributing to open-source ever since my GSoC 2015 participation
with BRL-CAD, and I have also worked on some open-source projects on
github (http://github.com/djkonro) and sourceforge (
https://sourceforge.net/u/konrado/profile/). I am very passionate about
cloud development, distributed systems, virtualization, thus my interest in
contributing to OpenStack. I am also a Google Developer Group Buea
https://developers.google.com/groups/chapter/100289274059280359416/
organizer, with some community experience.

I would like to know what it takes to become part of the OpenStack
Diversity Work Group and also to attend the work group team meetings. Are
they open to new member or is it restricted ?.

Thanks
Konrad

Hi Konrad,

Just show up to the meetings, send emails or whatever you want. A diversity
group with entry criteria would be counterproductive.

Please speak your mind.

[OpenStack Foundation] [OpenStack][Diversity] 5/19 Work Group meeting summary and next steps

All - We held a work group meeting on 5/19/16 with 7 people attending [0], the agenda is located here [2]. The full text of the meeting can be found here [1].

Here is a summary of the discussions:
Future Meetings: The team discussed various options for on-going team working sessions and agreed to use a combination of ML and etherpad for future team collaboration. There are still some details to be worked, but the plan is to send on the ML the agenda along with an etherpad link which will be used to capture the discussion for each agenda item. At the end of the week, a summary and outcome of the discussion will be published. I think the open issue is frequency of these discussions. We agreed to evaluate how this is going in 3 Months (end of August).

Ease of On-boarding New Community Members: Mike Perez provided an update on the work underway to create a portal that the Community can populate, targeted at helping newcomers to discover info and become contributors. The portal will support all of the ways people contribute to the community, including: translations, meet up organizing, working on defining use cases for features in OpenStack, code, etc. The idea with this that we're envisioning is a portal that gives you a "choose your own adventure" kind of feel what are you interested in contributing to? Based on your selected interests of what you want to contribute to the portal will highlight the "essential" on boarding documentation that people need to contribute. Add'l info from Austin discussions [3] and example documentation [4]. Details are being worked, more updates as they become available.

Austin Discussion Review: There were a couple of proposals that resonated with the people on the IRC: The need for an OpenStack Welcoming Committee to support new comers in the Community (or people new to an area of the Community), Increase the amount of content and training delivered via Videos instead of Text, Explore co-sponsoring events/activities with the Women of OpenStack because their programs (ex. Mentoring) provide benefit to the entire community and are open to all.

You can find these notes here in the etherpad log for the meeting here [6]. Pls review and add comments by 5/3. The agenda and timing for the next discussion will be send on 6/6.

All feedback welcome.

[OpenStack Foundation] Updating the Code of Conduct

Hi everyone,

There have been a few different conversations over the last 6+ months about updating the OpenStack Community code of conduct with the goals to encourage diversity, provide more explicit guidance around what is acceptable (or not acceptable behavior), and clarify the reporting / enforcement process. Cindy Pallares made some suggested edits on behalf of the Diversity Working Group a few months ago, and most recently Michael Krotscheck picked up the conversation on the User Committee mailing list. You can review their efforts here:

https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/CoC https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/CoC

Any changes to the code of conduct need to be approved by the board of directors, so for next steps, I’d like to get input on the proposed changes from the broader Foundation membership and then put it in front of the Board. Please feel free to make comments and provide feedback in the etherpad above or via this mailing list. If we have a quick consensus, we’ll propose the changes in June 28th board meeting. If it seems like there’s more discussion and work to be done, we’ll postpone. Happy for anyone to get involved.

Thanks,
Lauren

Thanks for raising this up Lauren,

I'd suggest changing the proposed CoC to separate off the softer
aspirational aspects (e.g. "Be friendly") from the more concrete rules
that we can and should enforce (specifically "Collaborate openly" and
"Be careful in the words that you choose").

Since it would be very difficult to deal with a reported CoC violation
around someone not being friendly enough for example, those clauses
could be seen to give the entire code an air of something we should
aim for in a perfect world, as opposed to rules that we really expect
everyone to adhere to.

Cheers,
Eoghan

Thanks,
Lauren

[OpenStack Foundation] New Individual Director

Russell Bryant recently resigned as an Individual Director on the Board. Under the bylaws, the remaining Individual Directors have the right to appoint another individual to serve out an empty term. Section 4.2 of the bylaws provides:

"In the case of the death, resignation or removal of any Individual Director (except for removal under Section 4.17), the vacancy may be filled by a majority vote of the remaining Individual Directors.”

This morning during a phone meeting of the Individual Directors, they voted to select Edgar Magana to fill the open seat. Welcome to the Board, Edgar!

Welcome, Edgar!

Just to clarify my resignation, I'm not leaving the OpenStack community. I
resigned to resolve a violation of the director diversity requirements in
the bylaws. Red Hat had 3 directors after Monty Taylor's change in
employment. Monty was voted ahead of me in the last election, so this would
have been the result had Monty been at Red Hat at election time.

I'll see you all in Barcelona, if not sooner.

Thanks!

[OpenStack Foundation] OpenStack mentoring efforts and Upstream Training for next OpenStack Summit

Hi all,

The OpenStack Summit is rapidly approaching and I wanted to chat about the
different mentoring efforts that are happening in the OpenStack community
before it in order to unite forces and make the best for all of them.

As the OpenStack Summit in Austin we had

  • Mentoring within internships like Outreachy and Google Summer of Code
    -- Duration: 3 month length
    -- Target: Underrepresented groups/Students respectively interested in
    contributing to OpenStack
    -- Mentors: Volunteers each round, not fixed list
    -- Coordinators: vkmc, mahatic, devdatta, dims
  • WOO light-weight mentoring + Speed-mentoring
    -- Duration: Not defined
    -- Target: People getting involved with OpenStack, with no prior experience
    in contributing to open source
    -- Mentors: DB of mentors
    -- Coordinators: ekhugen
  • Upstream Training
    -- Duration: 2 days training before OpenStack Summit
    -- Target: People getting involved with OpenStack, with no prior experience
    in contributing to open source
    -- Mentors: Volunteers each edition, not fixed list
    -- Coordinators: Volunteers each edition, not sure how this is defined

How can we merge all the efforts together?

Now, with regards to Upstream Training for the OpenStack Summit. Is there
any update about this training? Who is taking the lead this time? I see
that [0] shows information from latest round. Ildiko and I wanted to join
this edition too and we want to be ready to help whenever we can with it.

Best,

Victoria

Hi Victoria,
I'll send you an invite to the mentoring committee meetings on Wednesdays. Ildiko actually contacted me yesterday to start to talk a bit about Upstream training and the lightweight mentoring, and next Wednesday we're set to start talking about Speed Mentoring. We have started to talk a bit at our meetings about how we can interact with other mentoring initiatives in the community, like Hackathons, etc.
Thanks for bringing this up, we definitely need to get a united approach for mentoring.

[OpenStack Foundation] NEC Gold member change

To OpenStack Gold members, Board of directors and Foundation staff:

As I will be stepping away the Gold member representative, Mr. Takashi Torii will be assuming responsibilities representing NEC. I think everyone know him because He is already attending Gold member meeting and board meeting. (I CCed him on this email)

I was joined the Foundation as only a Japanese company at the first Board meeting in San Diego 2012.
During 4 years with OpenStack community, Gold members and the Board, It was really an exciting time for me and I think I could make some of contribution to grow OpenStack ecosystem especially for Japan and Asia. I was enjoyed the opportunity and wanted to say Thank you for everyone for your help.

I still working on the Open Source industries so you can feel free to reach out to me anytime.
Thank you again for the great time!

Best,
Tsugikazu Shibata

[OpenStack Foundation] More gold members?

Hi directors,

As a representative of the community, I am bringing up new requests about gold membership from my community to you.
China Unicom and H3C started the process to apply for gold member inside their companies, but as you know there is no seat left, which is a pity.

So can we start to discuss and consider to expand the number of the gold members from now or next meeting?
Is that possible?

Thanks.

I would certainly welcome opening this discussion.

It would also be useful to convene a meeting of the Gold sponsors ahead of
this discussion to solicit their opinions. I know that there's definitely a
variety of views on this topic.

[OpenStack Foundation] November 17 Board of Directors meeting

Last Thursday, the Board of Directors had a teleconference meeting. The agenda was posted online https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/17Nov2016BoardMeeting https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/17Nov2016BoardMeeting

The first portion of the meeting was an executive session to finish discussing the Gold Member applications that were unable to be reviewed at the meeting before Barcelona. After the executive session ended, the Board voted in open session to add 3 additional Gold Members, all global companies based in China: China Telecom, ZTE and Inspur. The addition of these 3 companies fills up all available Gold Member spots. Some directors expressed an interest in expanding the number of available slots. If you are interested in participating in that discussion, Shane Wang started a discussion thread on the Foundation mailing list on the topic.

Next the User Committee gave an update on the work they have been doing to create elected positions voted on by AUC members. They expect to present again at the December Board meeting.

Finally, the Board used the remaining time to talk about several strategic issues impacting OpenStack. Toby Ford started the discussion off with some thoughts on items that he sees as a large OpenStack operator around scaling OpenStack environments up and down, and also additional technology options that will be important in the future. The discussion was very lively and something that clearly needed more time and effort to cover.

Last Thursday, the Board of Directors had a teleconference meeting. The
agenda was posted online
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/17Nov2016BoardMeeting

The first portion of the meeting was an executive session to finish
discussing the Gold Member applications that were unable to be reviewed at
the meeting before Barcelona. After the executive session ended, the Board
voted in open session to add 3 additional Gold Members, all global companies
based in China: China Telecom, ZTE and Inspur. The addition of these 3
companies fills up all available Gold Member spots. Some directors expressed
an interest in expanding the number of available slots. If you are
interested in participating in that discussion, Shane Wang started a
discussion thread on the Foundation mailing list on the topic.

Next the User Committee gave an update on the work they have been doing to
create elected positions voted on by AUC members. They expect to present
again at the December Board meeting.

Finally, the Board used the remaining time to talk about several strategic
issues impacting OpenStack. Toby Ford started the discussion off with some
thoughts on items that he sees as a large OpenStack operator around scaling
OpenStack environments up and down, and also additional technology options
that will be important in the future. The discussion was very lively and
something that clearly needed more time and effort to cover. Board members
agreed to start to document and collect their thoughts and to revisit the
topic again in upcoming Board meetings.

Thanks, Jonathan. I've posted my own informal recollection of the meeting here:

[OpenStack Foundation] December 6 Board of Directors meeting

The Board of Directors met today on a phone conference. The agenda can be seen on the wiki: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/6Dec2016BoardMeeting

The meeting started out by approving minutes from the previous two Board meetings. After that, I presented a 2017 budget proposal. The Board discussed the budget with requests for some additional information going forward on how various Foundation programs and initiatives are impacting the overall budget. After the discussion, the Board voted to approve the proposed 2017 budget.

Next, Edgar Magana presented the full set of changes proposed to update membership of the User Committee. This included a new User Committee charter as well as Bylaws amendments to support the new structure. After discussion and some questions, the Board voted to approve the structure and the Bylaws amendments. The new User Committee structure parallels the structure of the Technical Committee in most ways. The User Committee will be holding elections starting in 2017 to fill positions. Full details on the structure and the updates can be found in links on the agenda wiki page.

Allison Randal led another discussion around strategic topics. The discussion started off by reviewing points that were collected after the previous Board meeting a few weeks ago and then turned to a framework of questions that participants can work on outside of the meeting. The goal is to use this framework to gather additional information that will focus and drive the work at an in-person meeting in early 2017.

The final topic on the agenda was brought up by Shane Wang. Shane mentioned that there are other companies who are interested in becoming corporate members of the Foundation, but there are currently no available spaces. He brought up the idea of increasing the number of Gold Member companies allowed. The Board discussed this possibility as well as other options like increasing Platinum company spaces, creating a new tier of corporate membership or finding other programs to involve these new companies. Ultimately, the consensus was that the directors would like to see more options and have a better understanding of what might be achieved by the various paths. Anni Lai and Rob Esker took the action to development some potential ideas and bring them back for consideration.

With that, the final Board meeting of 2016 closed. As a reminder, nominations for 2017 Board elections are currently open. For more information on the upcoming election visit the website at http://www.openstack.org/election/2017-individual-director-election/

[OpenStack Foundation] Board Election Promotion

Several people have asked for guidance on what are considered acceptable campaign tactics during a board election. Generally speaking, If you'd like to endorse or campaign for a particular candidate, feel free. And if you're a candidate yourself, by all means speak up and make your point of view known to potential voters. Participation is key!

The area where it gets tricky are the various communication mediums. I think it's appropriate to post to your own personal blog or social media handle. It would not be appropriate, however, to use an official OpenStack-branded channel, such as the openstack.org/news portal as that might give the impression that one candidate over another is being endorsed.

With respect to local user groups and web channels, I think they should remain neutral ground that are open to all local community members. So if individuals post links to their personal posts detailing their platforms or endorsements in that context, that seems fine to me, provided all local community members can do the same.

Ultimately it’s up to the members to decide during the election, but providing them with relevant information is certainly helpful.

As always, if you have a particular question or concern please contact secretary@openstack.org (Jonathan Bryce), or if you have a specific election incident to report contact the election inspector at electioninspectors@openstack.org

Maybe a 2018 resolution should be to not copy/paste my own typos. Sorry about that Mark!

[OpenStack Foundation] survey on open source collaboration practices

Hi all,

I’m running a brief (10 question) survey on the collaboration practices
common to companies participating in open source today. I’d greatly
appreciate a moment of your time to share your experience:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/os-participation

This survey is part of my academic research, and not related to my

[OpenStack Foundation] Supporting our global community

OpenStack is a global open source community. The OpenStack Foundation serves members in 180 countries focused on advancing the capabilities and accessibility of open infrastructure everywhere. We fundamentally believe diversity and collaboration are a powerful force for innovation, and it has been amazing to see the product of tens of thousands of people around the world over the last 6+ years.

Lauren, Mark and I disagree with the executive order issued by President Trump that targets individuals from 7 countries. The order restricts the travel and movement of people in a discriminatory way that results in a restriction on access to talent and ideas. It is still unclear how the policies will play out and be enforced, but we will be watching, advocating for and supporting our community members to the best of our ability.

This executive order will not impact the governance of the Foundation or the way the community operates globally. We will continue to support user groups and community members that are active in the seven countries named by the executive order, alongside our 120+ user groups around the world. However, we have two scheduled events in the United States within the next six months that will attract a global audience: the PTG (Project Teams Gathering) in Atlanta, Feb 20-24, a smaller event that will bring together hundreds of upstream contributors, and the OpenStack Summit in Boston, May 8-11, our larger event that happens every six months.

This executive order could impact some community members' ability to travel to Atlanta and Boston, but unfortunately it is too late at this point to change the location of these events. The following three OpenStack Summits, however, are now scheduled to occur outside of the United States. The next Summit will be in November 2017 in Sydney, Australia and we are working to finalize the details so we can announce the following two Summit locations soon.

We’ve already heard from one community member, Mohammed Naser, who is concerned that his plans to travel from Canada to Atlanta to attend the PTG may be restricted, simply because he a dual citizen of Canada and Iraq. Mohammed has been contributing code to OpenStack since 2011 and is the CEO and Founder of Vexxhost. Blocking his travel would serve no purpose and rob the community of a valuable contributor during an important event. If you are concerned about the impact or have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at jonathan@openstack.org.

Political actions like this highlight the importance of our collective values. The Four Opens, the founding principles of our community, exist to ensure the free flow of talent and ideas, across geographic, national, organizational or other lines that might divide us. We believe in humanity. We believe in opportunity. We believe in the power of collaboration across borders, and we will continue to carry forward our mission.

An update: Canada's Immigration Minister held a press conference saying
that Canadians with dual citizenship won't be affected:
http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/canada-hussen-reaction-to-trump-travel-restrictions-1.3957515
Now that should make things easier for Mohammed Naser but it doesn't
solve the larger problem affecting the whole community.

Also in the above linked article, the Canadian government will accept
those travelers refused entry by the United States due to this order, if
you find yourself in a situation where that information might be of help
to you.

As I already shared with Jonathan in private, I'm Canadian and plan on
avoiding as much travel to the US as I am able for the next four years,
so people not from the 7 named countries are also making choices as a
consequence of this action.

Confident we can collectively envision a productive future for all of us,
Anita.

[OpenStack Foundation] March 9 Board of Directors meeting

Hi everyone,

Last week we had about 40 people across the Board, TC, UC and a few working group volunteers gather in Boson for a strategy session and meetings. This included a joint session as well as a Board meeting and TC workshop. The agenda was published on the wiki: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/8Mar2017BoardMeeting

On Wednesday, we conducted a joint strategy session, primarily organized by Allison Randal and Alan Clark, to discuss issues and important actions around five key areas: 1) Communicating about "what is OpenStack," 2) Unanswered requirements, 3) Relationships with adjacent technologies, 4) Changes to OpenStack technology and 5) Community health. We’re working to compile and share more detail around the outcomes of the strategy workshop in a Superuser article, and we will share it with this mailing list.

On Thursday, the Board of Directors held a meeting. I provided an update on our progress this year based on the plans we communicated in the January board meeting. The primary focus has been changing the narrative around how OpenStack is perceived, leading with how second generation private clouds cost less and do more. I’ve attached the presentation with more details if you’d like to dig in. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

The Board then heard presentations from potential new members. After discussions regarding the applications, the Board approved Huawei as a Platinum Member to fill the spot HPE resigned, as well as H3C as a new Gold Member. We also heard from the User Committee and Product Working Group regarding their proposal to help facilitate the Forum at the Boston Summit. Finally, the Board approved my 2017 goals laid out by the Compensation Committee and began a discussion around 2017 goals for the Board.

The Board also approved the promotion of Thierry Carrez to VP of Engineering for the OpenStack Foundation. Thierry has been a leader in the technical community since the beginning of OpenStack and has also built a team within the Foundation focused on upstream collaboration.

There will be several places where the discussions from the week will continue and interact with other ongoing efforts (TC initiatives, Forum, etc), so keep an eye out for more information on these topics. I hope I speak for everyone who attended when I say we walked away from this week with our eyes open to the challenges we face, but also energized and ready to tackle them. While we certainly have a lot of work to do, there’s never been a greater opportunity for OpenStack given the strength of our community and the value our technology is providing users around the world.

Thank you to all of Technical Committee, User Committee and Board Directors who made the trip or participated on the phone (from opposite timezones!) to make this such a productive week.

Thanks,
Jonathan

[OpenStack Foundation] OSIC news

Hello,

As you may be aware, a report on Friday indicated that Intel and Rackspace plan to discontinue OSIC. Since the effort was run by these two companies and not the Foundation, my knowledge is somewhat limited, but I’d like to share my perspective since there is a lot of conjecture flying around right now.

1) OSIC was launched almost 2 years ago in July of 2015 and is described on osic.org: "The OpenStack Innovation Center (OSIC), established by Intel and Rackspace, is designed to accelerate enterprise adoption of the world’s leading open source cloud operating system while supporting open source principles” (source: osic.org http://osic.org/)

In essence, it was a joint venture to provide a large OpenStack cluster for developers, hosted and staffed by Intel & Rackspace. For example, the cluster was used for large scale testing and as a basis for training many new stackers. OSIC also provided the OpenStack infrastructure team with some capacity for our CI/CD pipeline, which tests every code commit.

2) Contrary to some of the wilder theories on social media, there are no signs that Intel or Rackspace are abandoning OpenStack. This move was specificaly about the end of the OSIC joint partnership for the test cluster after ~2 years.

Key facts worth noting:

  • Both Intel and Rackspace are high level sponsors of the OpenStack Summit next month in Boston.
  • Intel is giving a keynote in Boston.
  • We'll be featuring a large Rackspace private cloud customer, GE, during the opening keynote in Boston.
  • Rackspace CEO Taylor Rhodes said in a February blog post that OpenStack private cloud was among their businesses "growing rapidly, at annualized rates in the high double digits.”
  • And as Kolla PTL Michal tweeted: "Intel is still around #openstack”[1]

3) What does the loss of this test cluster mean for the infrastructure team testing OpenStack code? Fortunately, the infra team is already integrated with 6 other cloud providers in a dozen regions all over the world, and is preparing for life without OSIC. We believe any disruption to the development process will be minimal.

4) How many people are now potentially looking for work, and what can do to to help them? We don’t have an official count, but the latest quote from Rackspace suggests its about 45 people. If you are personally affected, but are still wanting to attend the Boston Summit or get connected with companies who are hiring, please contact me directly. We will do our best to support you.

The good news is that OpenStack community is diverse and resilient with more than 70,000 members globally, and 3,500 developers contributing to the codebase in 2016 alone. Thank you to the community members who have already responded with an amazing show of support by offering to connect those impacted with companies hiring for OpenStack, and linking directly to many. To name a few, AT&T, Amadeus, Bloomberg, Catalyst IT, Cisco, Comcast, GoDaddy, Huawei, Kumulus, Okinawa Open Lab, Ormuco, SUSE, Target, Wells Fargo, Verizon are all hiring [2]. We're asking these companies to use our free job board at http://www.openstack.org/jobs http://www.openstack.org/jobs to help centralize these efforts.

A few of the tweets:

Monty Taylor: https://twitter.com/e_monty/status/852856567699566593 https://twitter.com/e_monty/status/852856567699566593
"OpenStack humans now in need of a job: I talked with several OpenStack companies who are hiring - ping me and I'll make intros."

Jim Rollenhagen: https://twitter.com/jimrollenhagen/status/852594340870447110 https://twitter.com/jimrollenhagen/status/852594340870447110
"Wow, the OpenStack community is simply amazing. <3”

Jim Meyer: https://twitter.com/purp/status/852570999883268096 https://twitter.com/purp/status/852570999883268096
"For all you #OpenStack-related folks who might be looking, now or in the future, we’re hiring at @SUSE"

Over the last two years. the team working on OSIC have made very valuable contributions to the community, including training and recruiting, upstream code and testing. Their efforts in providing a public test cloud have positively impacted the software and the community, and I hope many will be able to continue their work in different roles at Intel, Rackspace, or at a new company.

Anytime there is change in the commurimty, it means another opportunity to pull together and help one another. We’re already seeing this happen in a big way, which makes me very proud to be part of this community!

[OpenStack Foundation] Theming Operator Midcycle

Hi everyone,

We started some time ago discussing the possibility of theming the operator
midcycle to increase interest and participation by region. An example would
be for Mexico City we heard that HPC is important there locally and ideally
we would either create a HPC track, use the main room of the venue for HPC
talks, or some other way of highlighting the theme via content, promotions,
etc.

Currently we are proposing[0] a midcycle in APAC with Tokyo being the
current front-runner and knowing that the foundation is going on an "Asia
Tour" in July, we would like to ask that the foundation looks for or allows
us time after the tour, to understand the needs of the APAC region in hopes
of pulling out a workable theme for the midcycle.

Hi Melvin,

Very cool, I like the idea of theming the ops meetups, and our course HPC is a very important use case for our community.

I’m happy to help brainstorm theme ideas for the 1H 2018 ops meetup in Tokyo after the OpenStack Days in Asia tour happening in July. I’m sure the user group and community leaders would also have some great ideas. Also worth noting, the OpenStack Day China organizers are hosting a “mini” ops meetup in Chinese at their event July 24-25th, and are planning to translate and deliver notes/outcomes to the community. I know you have good insight into the event, but it would be great to know how we could tie these efforts into the overall picture and if it’s something that could or should be replicated at other OpenStack Days around the world. This also extends to naming and recommended structure for the events.

The idea of theming the ops meetup also lines up well with our approach to establish a small working event that we announced at the Boston Summit focused on collaboration with other open source communities. It’s called OpenDev[1] (not heavily OpenStack branded in an effort to collaborate across the industry) and this year will be focused entirely on defining the edge computing stack. I’d like to discuss how to document feedback and reference architectures coming out of the event, and will add it to a User Committee agenda in the next few weeks.

Happy to help however I can.

Best,
Lauren

Hi everyone,

We started some time ago discussing the possibility of theming the operator midcycle to increase interest and participation by region. An example would be for Mexico City we heard that HPC is important there locally and ideally we would either create a HPC track, use the main room of the venue for HPC talks, or some other way of highlighting the theme via content, promotions, etc.

Currently we are proposing[0] a midcycle in APAC with Tokyo being the current front-runner and knowing that the foundation is going on an "Asia Tour" in July, we would like to ask that the foundation looks for or allows us time after the tour, to understand the needs of the APAC region in hopes of pulling out a workable theme for the midcycle.

[OpenStack Foundation] June 20 Board of Directors Meeting

The OpenStack Foundation Board of Directors met last week on June 20. The agenda was posted online ahead of time on the wiki: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/20June2017BoardMeeting https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/20June2017BoardMeeting

The meeting opened with roll call and approval of the May meeting minutes ( https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/7May2017BoardMinutes https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/7May2017BoardMinutes ). Next up, the Interop Working Group gave an update on the progress they have made, especially add-on and vertical. Details are linked from the agenda above, and I’d encourage you to look over them if you are interested in understanding how the Interop programs might be growing over the rest of the year.

Finally, the Board heard applications from Ericsson to become a Platinum Member and Canonical to become a Gold Member. After discussion in executive session, the Board returned to open session and approved both corporate member applications unanimously.

Congrats to both organizations!

[OpenStack Foundation] OpenStack is participating in a new community analytics project

Hi All,

I would like to give you a heads up on OpenStack is joining a new project formed by the Linux Foundation around community health analytics for open source software named CHAOSS [1][2].

The project is getting announced on the Open Source Summit today [3].

The intention is to work on to define a set of (vendor neutral) metrics around different areas, like Project Diversity and Inclusion, Project Growth - Maturity - Decline and so forth.

Beyond defining meaningful metrics that aren’t specific to any participating community or company the project is also intending to put tooling around to collect and visualize the data.

Part of the goals is to have companies using this too internally as part of their InnerSource efforts which can be beneficial on making these companies understand better the purpose of the metrics, how to use them, and so forth.

The project is very interesting as we are all facing the difficulties on how to measure the state and progress of the community, how to create meaningful metrics, how to familiarize them and how to prevent gaming of the numbers. We would also like to ensure that OpenStack is represented in this effort as one of the large open source communities around.

OpenStack is also represented on the Governing Board [4] of the project, where I took the board seat.

If any of you have questions or would like to get involved in the different activities the project has either on the side of defining metrics or work on the tooling around, please reach out to me I would be happy to help you.

Thanks and Best Regards,
Ildikó Váncsa

Great to see. Is it possible to have the metrics for the whole of OpenStack and the metrics per OpenStack project? This could potentially be useful for some of the tags if we’re happy with the metrics.

I like the summary of the adjacent communities’ success factors analysis. Our workstream really wanted to provide as much information to the board as possible, however, your summary may be more rapid for external communication.

[OpenStack Foundation] OpenStack and open infrastructure

Hi everyone,

I wanted to provide a preview of some updates on the Foundation we’ll be talking about in Sydney. This email is a little long, so here’s the quick summary—read on for more detail.

We’re seeing some common issues that open infrastructure users are running into when deploying OpenStack and other open source infrastructure projects together, and we want to improve this situation through Foundation efforts focused on the overall state of integration and operations for these users.

1) Planning to reorganize some Foundation community activities more around use cases such as datacenter cloud infrastructure (traditional OpenStack use case), CI/CD (very common use case), container infrastructure (rapidly growing use case), and edge infrastructure (emerging use case)

2) Supporting additional user-driven OSS projects to facilitate integration in these use case (not necessarily OpenStack-branded or part of the existing OpenStack datacenter infrastructure cloud services)

3) Expanding ongoing testing of OpenStack + other open source cloud tools (e.g. OpenStack in CNCF CI, new "OpenLab" testing effort, encouraging broader use of Zuul v3)

Now the longer version. As some of you may know a joint leadership group made up of the TC, the UC, the Board and Foundation staff has been doing some work this year to look at where we are 5 years in and what we should be thinking about over the next few years.

As we’ve talked about a lot of different aspects of OpenStack and also talked with users, we’ve seen some common trends emerge. First, we continue to see a lot of growth in OpenStack deployments. Second, we also see increasing diversity in the kinds of use cases organizations are deploying OpenStack to serve. We’ve also seen that many users are having difficulty with consuming all of the OpenStack services along with the numerous other open technologies that they often combine. While some of these issues are being helped by more mature commercial offerings in the market, in some cases there are areas that present us with opportunities as a community of developers and users working together.

One of the biggest needs is for better integration between open infrastructure components up and down the stack, and we have identified four key elements to improve the state of integration and operations by directing Foundation efforts and activities along these lines.

JOINT USE CASES
For a successful integration, we need user-driven reasons to combine components. We have hundreds of reasons from users all over the world. Organizations like Yahoo! Japan, eBay, AT&T, Liveperson, Commonwealth, Fico, GAP, Target, JD.com, SKT, GE Healthcare, SAP, China Railway, Fiberhome, Walmart, and China Telecom all combine OpenStack software with other open source tools including Kubernetes, Ceph and Cloud Foundry to solve real business problems.

To better define the use cases, we’re planning to organize some of our activities across problem domains:
• Datacenter cloud infrastructure
• Container infrastructure
• Edge infrastructure
• CI/CD infrastructure
• In the future other drivers of infrastructure usage like machine learning and AI

The OpenStack project has always been about enabling truly open collaboration across the industry to produce open source infrastructure software. Tackling these use cases more directly brings our open collaboration model to new areas and new organizations. It will also bring in new users and resources that will benefit our core cloud infrastructure components, users and resources that may not have previously seen where their needs fit in with one single giant thing called "OpenStack."

CROSS-COMMUNITY COLLABORATION
We have to get the communities together, build trust and deliver standard interfaces we can count on between the components. Interoperability efforts are key to ensuring that these integrations are repeatable, stable and production quality. Within the OpenStack community, we have many upstream contributors to other projects, and often organize events that bring together the developers and users across the communities.

FOSTERING NEW OPEN INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS
The rate of open source innovation has skyrocketed in the last 5 years, however, many projects are developed independently of the production environments in which they must run. We need new projects that focus on the practical implications of deploying large open source software projects together and operating them reliably for years. Lifecycle management of OpenStack has been a top need for users and projects like TripleO, Kolla, OpenStack-Ansible and the new openstack-helm project are tackling this problem head on.

When you look outside of the OpenStack core, you see issues such as container security that are preventing adoption among regulated industries. Edge computing and edge clouds represent an incredible opportunity, but have specific deployment and security needs that may require specialized components. These technology components are critical to deployment success and are often being developed separately inside of user organizations. We can help these users open source and collaborate together to build these systems even though some may not necessarily be OpenStack-branded or part of the existing OpenStack datacenter infrastructure cloud services.

TESTING OF END-TO-END SYSTEMS
Once we have identified a valid use case, ramped up the collaboration and built the tools that make the integration a reality, we need to test the entire end-to-end stack to ensure stability and performance. Many open source communities have excellent internal continuous testing, but users do not run our software in silos, and we can’t test in silos. The OPNFV XCI cross-community CI system is an example that implements this concept today. The new OpenLab initiative from OpenStack community members takes this concept to even more of these projects.

The OpenStack Foundation manages a large and growing global community of developers and users who are building and deploying open source software for managing infrastructure in all forms. This is a really exciting mission to be on right now, and I think that updating our strategy to support more integration and operation work is key to helping our users succeed not just with OpenStack clouds, but with their broader open infrastructure ambitions.

For those of you who will be in Sydney, we'll be talking more about this and we have a Forum session set up as well on Wednesday in room C4.11: https://www.openstack.org/summit/sydney-2017/summit-schedule/events/20597/openstack-foundation-update

Thanks,

Jonathan
