opendevmeetThe meeting name has been set to 'octavia'16:00
gthiemongeHi everyone!16:00
gthiemongeis it the right place?16:00
johnsomFirst meeting in our shiny new home16:00
haleybi dropped freenode completely16:01
gthiemongeI'm only in openstack-lbaas in case someone asks a question16:01
rm_workmade it to the inaugural meeting :P16:01
johnsomI dropped most of my freenode channels, but I'm hanging out in a few to direct people to the new location.16:02
gthiemongewe should probably update the topic there, I don't know if I have the permission16:03
gthiemonge#topic Announcements16:03
johnsomWe don't want to update the topic on freenode. They will lock the channel if we do16:03
gthiemongeML2/OVN is now the default network backend in devstack - Octavia gates are broken16:04
gthiemongeYou may have noticed that ML2/OVN is now the default backend in devstack16:04
gthiemongeIt breaks our gates because the route to the IPv6 subnets is not set, our IPv6 load balancers are not reachable.16:05
gthiemongeWe need a change in devstack to fix it:16:05
haleybthey didn't re-revert it?  think they were trying16:05
gthiemongehaleyb: It seems it was re-enabled on May 25th16:06
gthiemongeI'll ping the folks on #openstack-qa to review that change16:06
gthiemongeor should we wait for a 2nd revert?16:06
haleybthe 2nd revert was abandoned16:07
gthiemongehaha, and this is no joke16:09
gthiemongeok, next announcement16:09
gthiemongeIRC channel name change16:09
gthiemongeAs we're moving to OFTC, we requested to rename the IRC channel to #openstack-octavia.16:09
gthiemongeIt hasn't officially been validated yet, and I'll send an email to the openstack-discuss ML when it's done.16:10
haleybI would +1 that, and sent this review out to change our in-tree doc16:10
rm_workhmmm i'm not sure I fully agree? but can be convinced (or outvoted :D)16:11
gthiemongedo we need to vote?16:11
haleybneutron didn't keep openstack-quantum :p16:12
johnsomI think it's nice to have a project name agnostic channel, but on the flip side we have someone about once a year that can't find the "octavia" channel.16:12
gthiemongerm_work: convinced? :D16:15
rm_workI personally liked to be "the place for lbaas", if people want to know about lbaas they go here, and find out the project is octavia16:16
rm_workI dunno, I guess I'd rather have #openstack-compute than #openstack-nova too but I give the "core" projects a pass I guess for people knowing their names16:16
rm_workthat said, octavia is now "the lbaas project"16:17
johnsomHow dare you not call us "core"16:17
rm_workso *shrug*16:17
gthiemongeI don't think people will reach the "lbaas" IRC channel without knowing what Octavia is16:18
rm_workI also hate to move channels without a GREAT reason, it just ends up splitting stuff forever16:18
rm_workthere will be people in this channel until the end of the network, lol16:18
johnsomI could go either way really16:18
rm_workyeah someone do some convincing?16:19
rm_workor PTL just say we're doing it and I will say "ok" :D16:20
gthiemongewe can continue this discussion in the project-config review? if we need it16:20
rm_workI just think "The team wanted to rename it for a long time" is an interesting assertion, I don't know that I ever heard that, nor felt that way :D16:20
rm_workyeah sure16:20
rm_workif we have lots of other pressing business ;)16:20
rm_workbike-shedding moved to gerrit16:21
gthiemongerm_work: it has a W-1, everything is still possible16:22
rm_workindeed, not the end of the world either way16:22
gthiemongeany other announcements?16:23
gthiemonge#topic Brief progress reports / bugs needing review16:25
gthiemongeI have one open review for octaviaclient, it fixes errors when the user has more than 1000 octavia resources (>=1k load balancers, ...)16:26
johnsomI had a little vacation time, so....16:26
gthiemongeAPI calls were not paginated, so some commands failed because octaviaclient may not find the requested LB among the first 1000 entries16:27
johnsomI also have a related patch open. The tests need work on it.16:27
gthiemongejohnsom: do you need help on this one?16:27
johnsomIf you have time, please feel free to work on it.16:27
gthiemongejohnsom: ok np16:28
johnsomBasically the current tests blanket mock out the DB calls, so the new filters don't apply16:28
gthiemonge#topic Open Discussion16:30
gthiemongeAny other topics today?16:30
rm_workjohnsom: lol yeah ... mocks are hard :D16:31
rm_worknothing for me -- trying to figure out what my directives are going to be for the next quarter+ so I know how much time I actually have to spend upstream16:32
rm_work(in that meeting simultaneously, now)16:32
johnsomWell, it's just the way the old tests were written. I ran out of time I could put into that patch last week.16:32
johnsomMany hats, just one clock. or something like that16:33
johnsomIt should provide one heck of a speedup on large clouds though.16:34
gthiemongeI guess that's it for today16:38
gthiemongeThanks everyone16:38
