17:01:59 <devkulkarni> hi james_li
17:02:04 <james_li> hi devkulkarni
17:02:19 <devkulkarni> I know that vijendar may not be joining us today
17:02:44 <devkulkarni> james_li, Ablu: here is the agenda for today's meeting: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Meetings/Solum#Agenda_for_2016-04-05_1700_UTC
17:02:58 <devkulkarni> james_li: we have Ablu as well for the meeting today
17:03:10 <devkulkarni> Ablu: do you want to quickly introduce yourself?
17:03:14 <james_li> Hi Ablu
17:03:40 <devkulkarni> Ablu: james_li is one of the core contributors of solum
17:04:39 <Ablu> Hm. I am a student who is writing a bachelor thesis about an openstack topic, It is about deploying directly from source repositories
17:04:53 <devkulkarni> Ablu: cool.
17:05:01 <devkulkarni> hi vijendar
17:05:11 <vijendar> devkulkarni: hi
17:05:20 <devkulkarni> we have james_li and Ablu with us today
17:05:23 <Ablu> so I found solum and plan to observe it too see wether it fits the needs (or wether I can reuse parts :))
17:05:55 <james_li> Ablu: whats the app you tries to deploy?
17:06:02 <devkulkarni> Ablu: we would be happy to help you with anything specific related to solum
17:06:35 <Ablu> james_li: it is not about a specific app, more about a general way to deploy applications in various languages from source
17:07:20 <devkulkarni> Ablu: sounds something with which solum will be able to help
17:07:20 <james_li> Ablu: yeah. will be cool if you can find some interesting apps to try :)
17:07:53 <devkulkarni> thanks Ablu for the introduction
17:07:59 <devkulkarni> lets get started
17:08:15 <devkulkarni> #topic Announcements

17:08:26 <devkulkarni> http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2016-April/091103.html
17:08:51 <devkulkarni> TC elections are happening right now
17:09:03 <devkulkarni> you might have received a link to vote
17:09:15 <devkulkarni> please take a moment to vote
17:09:46 <devkulkarni> it is important that we participate in this, as the tc is the one who decides the long term strategic vision of openstack as whole
17:10:06 <devkulkarni> I think the voting remains open till April 7th
17:10:36 <devkulkarni> second announcement is regarding Austin summit sessions
17:10:43 <devkulkarni> 2) Austin summit tracks
17:10:51 <devkulkarni> Solum Fishbowl session: April 28, Thursday, 4:10 - 4:50
17:10:57 <devkulkarni> Solum Work room: April 28, Thursday, 5:00 - 5:40
17:11:07 <devkulkarni> I have started an etherpad
17:11:11 <devkulkarni> https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/solum-austin-summit-planning
17:11:34 <devkulkarni> please add items that you want us to discuss during the work session and the fishbowl session
17:12:48 <devkulkarni> any other announcements that any of the team members want to make?
17:13:42 <devkulkarni> alright.. lets move to next topic
17:13:53 <devkulkarni> #topic Review Action Items
17:13:59 <devkulkarni> (devkulkarni) (done) Follow up with openstack-infra team to find out root cause for the devstack gate failure
17:14:08 <devkulkarni> (devkulkarni) (todo) Follow up with the devstack team
17:14:16 <devkulkarni> our devstack gate is currently failing
17:14:25 <devkulkarni> last week I updated the team on the issue
17:14:33 <devkulkarni> let me summarize that
17:15:06 <devkulkarni> basically, what is happening is, devstack scripts are trying to upload a non-existent log file (n-dhcp.log)
17:15:20 <devkulkarni> I reached out to the openstack-infra team about this
17:15:38 <devkulkarni> they confirmed that this is an issue in devstack setup
17:15:47 <devkulkarni> so we need to follow up with the devstack team
17:15:59 <devkulkarni> I did not get a chance to do that last week
17:16:10 <devkulkarni> I might try reaching out to them sometime this week
17:16:24 <devkulkarni> in the mean time, I have pushed a patch to workaround the issue and unblock the gate
17:16:40 <devkulkarni> vijendar, james_li: could you please take a look at this patch and approve it?
17:16:46 <james_li> yeah
17:16:53 <devkulkarni> https://review.openstack.org/#/c/298342/
17:17:23 <devkulkarni> the patch creates a temporary n-dhcp.log in post-gate-hook
17:17:58 <devkulkarni> once I get some clarity about the root cause from the devstack team, I will remove this
17:18:10 <devkulkarni> right now, this will unblock the gate
17:18:19 <vijendar> devkulkarni: I just did +2
17:18:26 <devkulkarni> vijendar: cool, thanks !!
17:18:51 <devkulkarni> let me progress the meeting to the next topic, which have started any ways
17:18:58 <devkulkarni> #topic Patches for Review
17:19:16 <devkulkarni> 1) I have updated our docs: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/301244/
17:19:38 <devkulkarni> btw, I have added this: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Solum/solum-development-setup
17:20:16 <devkulkarni> if any of you get a chance to verify the steps listed ^^ (either Vagrant or Devstack or both) that would be awesome
17:20:41 <devkulkarni> if you have improvements for the steps to make things smoother, that will be even more awesome
17:20:57 <devkulkarni> I want to get to a smooth setup before the austin summit
17:21:10 <devkulkarni> imo, we are almost there..
17:21:37 <devkulkarni> there are few remaining things that we need to do manually right now (which are outlined in the solum-development-setup wiki page)
17:21:58 <devkulkarni> if we can automate those as well, that will be really helpful for on-boarding new contributors
17:22:12 <devkulkarni> on that note, how has been your experience with Solum so far, Ablu?
17:22:55 <Ablu> well, it was a hard ride without too much experience with devstack and vagrant, but I know have a working snapshot I can rely on in the future :)
17:23:13 <Ablu> But yeah, merging the manual steps into the vagrant setup would make stuff a lot more error prone
17:23:24 <Ablu> *a lot less
17:23:27 <devkulkarni> ha ha
17:23:36 <devkulkarni> lot less error prone
17:23:37 <devkulkarni> agree
17:23:53 <devkulkarni> Ablu: thanks for the patience
17:24:06 <devkulkarni> Ablu: I am really glad that you have a working setup
17:25:02 <devkulkarni> Ablu: if you have any improvements, please feel free to suggest those via patches, pull requests, or just some code outline
17:25:33 <devkulkarni> alright.. let me proceed to the next patch for review and talk about that
17:26:17 <devkulkarni> 2) https://review.openstack.org/#/c/296644/ —> this one updates the releasenotes to include mitaka release information
17:27:01 <devkulkarni> 3) https://review.openstack.org/#/c/296643/ —> and this one does more mitaka release related stuff
17:27:17 <devkulkarni> both these patches are currently blocked on the devstack gate getting cleared up
17:27:58 <devkulkarni> this patch https://review.openstack.org/#/c/298342/ is the workaround that I was talking about earlier regarding clearing up of the devstack gate
17:28:22 <devkulkarni> james_li: if you can review https://review.openstack.org/#/c/298342/ that will help unblock the gate
17:28:32 <james_li> looking
17:28:37 <devkulkarni> james_li: thanks
17:29:28 <devkulkarni> apart from these, there are no outstanding patches to review
17:29:39 <devkulkarni> our review queue is pretty light right now
17:29:48 <devkulkarni> https://review.openstack.org/#/q/project:openstack/solum+status:open,n,z
17:29:53 <devkulkarni> https://review.openstack.org/#/q/project:openstack/python-solumclient+status:open,n,z
17:30:27 <devkulkarni> https://review.openstack.org/#/q/project:openstack/solum-dashboard+status:open,n,z
17:30:56 <devkulkarni> are there any patches that any of you are working on that needs review?
17:31:24 <devkulkarni> if not, let me move to the next topic
17:31:30 <devkulkarni> #topic Bug Review
17:31:59 <devkulkarni> there have been no new bugs filed on: https://bugs.launchpad.net/solum/
17:32:18 <devkulkarni> Ablu: if you run into any issues, you can use ^^ to file a bug
17:32:31 <devkulkarni> we also have https://bugs.launchpad.net/python-solumclient/
17:32:39 <devkulkarni> where you can file python-solumclient bugs
17:33:44 <devkulkarni> are there any bugs that any of you have ran into recently?
17:35:49 <devkulkarni> alright.. if you have ran into any issues/bugs, please use above mentioned links to file the bugs
17:36:07 <devkulkarni> #topic Open Discussion
17:36:15 <devkulkarni> 1) Updates from upstream
17:36:27 <devkulkarni> 1) Cross-project sessions
17:36:27 <devkulkarni> https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/newton-cross-project-sessions
17:36:58 <devkulkarni> the tuesday during the summit week has been reserved for cross-project meetings and discussions
17:37:18 <devkulkarni> above etherpad has list of all the cross project sessions that have been proposed
17:37:27 <devkulkarni> folks have voted on different sessions
17:37:41 <devkulkarni> the final agenda will have only selected sessions
17:38:18 <devkulkarni> most of these sessions would be interesting imo
17:38:37 <devkulkarni> if you are attending summit, I would encourage you to attend these sessions
17:38:48 <devkulkarni> 2) Tempest tests for designate
17:38:53 <devkulkarni> http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2016-April/091295.html
17:39:18 <devkulkarni> this thread is discussing how the designate team is splitting out their functional tests in a separate repository
17:39:48 <devkulkarni> in solum, we have been looking at using tempest plugin for writing our functional tests
17:39:57 <devkulkarni> dimtruck has submitted a patch for it:
17:40:10 <devkulkarni> https://review.openstack.org/#/c/264899/
17:40:59 <devkulkarni> one of the things that the tempest team advocates about writing/creating tempest plugin, is to split out the tests in a separate repo (which is what the designate team is proposing)
17:41:22 <devkulkarni> I don't know yet whether it is a good option for us
17:41:36 <devkulkarni> there are pros/cons of both approaches
17:42:10 <devkulkarni> just something that we should keep in mind
17:42:40 <devkulkarni> if you have any thoughts about the tempest plugin code for solum, please add your comments to dimtruck's patch
17:43:04 <devkulkarni> 3) Regarding resource reservations
17:43:08 <devkulkarni> http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2016-April/091390.html
17:43:22 <devkulkarni> Another interesting thread this week was resource reservations in openstack
17:44:06 <devkulkarni> apparently there is a cross project effort to figure out the current state of resource reservation across different openstack projects
17:44:17 <devkulkarni> cinder team has chimed in on that thread
17:44:47 <devkulkarni> in solum, the issue of reservation for infrastructure has not come up directly
17:44:55 <devkulkarni> but we do put limits on the number of apps that can be created
17:45:07 <devkulkarni> there are also limits on the number of instances to which we can scale an app
17:45:59 <devkulkarni> if you are interested in that topic (resource reservation), I would encourage you to keep yourself looped in on that thread
17:46:18 <devkulkarni> 4) Default flavors are getting removed from Nova
17:46:57 <devkulkarni> http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2016-April/091434.html
17:48:10 <devkulkarni> looks like nova is getting rid of default flavors
17:48:25 <devkulkarni> I don't know if it will directly affect us in solum
17:48:34 <devkulkarni> but something that I thought you should know
17:49:22 <devkulkarni> any other topic for open discussion today?
17:53:20 <james_li> none from me
17:53:31 <devkulkarni> thanks james_li
17:53:38 <devkulkarni> alright then
17:53:50 <devkulkarni> thanks james_li vijendar Ablu for joining the meeting today
17:53:54 <devkulkarni> see you next week
