    • Next round runs December 5th to March 5th
  • Libraries published to pypi with YYYY.X.Z versions[13]
    • During Kilo when the neutron vendor decomposition happened, the release version was set to 2015.1.0 for basically all of the networking projects
    • Main issue is that networking-hyperv == 2015.1.0 is currently on Pypi and whenever someone upgrades through pip, it ‘upgrades’ to 2015.1.0 because its considered the latest version
    • Should that version be unpublished?
    • Three options[14]
      • Unpublish- simplest, but goes against policy of pypi never unpublishing
        • +1 from tonyb, made a rough list of others to unpublish that need to be confirmed with PTL’s before passing to infra to unpublish[15]
      • Rename- a bunch of work for downstreams, but cleaner than unpublishing
      • Reversion- Start new versions at 3000 or something, but very hacky and ugly
    • dhellman, ttx, and fungi think that deleting it from pypi is the simplest route though not the typically recommended way of handling things
  • Removing Screen from devstack-RSN[16]
    • Work to make devstack only have a single execution mode- same between automated QA & local- is almost done!
