Time to Make Some Assertions About Your Projects

  • The technical committee defined a number of “assert” tags which allows a project team to to make assertions about their own deliverables:
    • assert:follows-standard-deprecation
    • assert:supports-upgrade
    • assert:supports-rolling-upgrade
  • Read more on their definitions [1]
  • Update the project.yaml [2] of which tags apply to your project already.
  • The OpenStack foundation will use “assert”tags very soon in the project navigator [3].

Making Stable Maintenance Its Own OpenStack Project Team

  • Continuing discussion from last week [4]…
  • Negatives:
    • Not enough work to warrant a designated “team”.
    • The change is unlikely to bring a meaning full improvement to the situation, sudden new resources.
  • Positives:
    • * An empowered team could tackle new coordination tasks, like engaging more directly in converging stable branch rules across teams, or producing tools.
    • Release management doesn’t overlap anymore with stable branch, so having them under that PTL is limiting and inefficient
    • Reinforcing the branding (by giving it its own team) may encourage more organizations to affect new resources to it
  • Matt Riedemann offers to lead the team.

  • The openstack/release repository will be used to manage Mitaka 1 milestone tags.
  • Reno [5] will be used instead of Launchpad for tracking completed work. Make sure any release notes done for this cycle are committed to your master branchless before proposing the milestone tag.
