17:00:24 <alaski> anyone around today?
17:00:27 <melwitt> o/
17:01:04 <alaski> this'll probably be quick then
17:01:13 <melwitt> haha, yeah
17:01:21 <melwitt> bauzas?
17:01:21 <alaski> #topic open discussion
17:01:35 <alaski> we'll just do open discussion today
17:01:59 <bauzas> \o
17:02:14 * bauzas was just dinnering, so quick there :)
17:02:31 <alaski> we'll be looking at specs again soon, so start thinking about any you may want to put together or work on
17:02:50 <bauzas> alaski: I'd like to see some discussion around a parallel scheduler for Mitaka
17:03:12 <alaski> what do you mean by parallel?
17:03:18 <bauzas> alaski: scaling out
17:04:00 <bauzas> alaski: tbc, just a discussion
17:04:04 <alaski> okay
17:04:06 <alaski> sure
17:04:15 <melwitt> I thought I had read something about how devstack wasn't set up to create new cells tables or something? did that get resolved or needs to be done?
17:04:26 <bauzas> melwitt: I thought it was done
17:04:34 <alaski> it is done
17:04:35 <bauzas> melwitt: but not there for Kilo devstack
17:04:35 <melwitt> bauzas: okay, cool
17:04:41 <bauzas> melwitt: hence the grenade problem
17:04:56 <alaski> yeah, grenade was the issue
17:05:11 <melwitt> I've been out of the loop for awhile and was just curious what's the state of trying to use devstack to try out things with cells v2
17:05:15 <alaski> but now that grenade will switch to L->M it won't be an issue
17:05:37 <bauzas> melwitt: so, dansmith made a good homework for that, but it was merged by Liberty
17:05:57 <alaski> melwitt: devstack runs the nova_api migrations, and configures the connection string.  but does nothing else
17:06:10 <alaski> since there's nothing else to do really
17:06:16 <bauzas> :)
17:06:41 <bauzas> alaski: more than just discussing about concurrent schedulers, what do you would like to get for Mitaka ?
17:07:11 <bauzas> alaski: do you want to have a session for cells ?
17:07:30 <alaski> my main focus is going to be reworking the build process to write instance data into nova_api and then schedule and create an instnace in a cell
17:07:41 <alaski> so reworking build_instances again
17:07:57 <vineetmenon> o/
17:07:57 <bauzas> alaski: okay, do you think it's worth proposing for https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MZVwxv8t6sM15Kct5i7yOS-8-NCvqsW742s5Y_LDyjg/edit#gid=816860825 ?
17:08:10 <alaski> bauzas: my hesitation is that I'm not going to be at the summit :(
17:08:18 <bauzas> alaski: oh... okay
17:08:21 <alaski> otherwise I would love to discuss it
17:08:42 <bauzas> ah yeah, right
17:08:54 <bauzas> I know why and I guess it's acceptable :p
17:09:00 <alaski> heh
17:09:19 <alaski> that brings up another thing I wanted to mention.  at some time in the near future I'm going to be out for a few weeks
17:09:27 <alaski> does anyone want to run the meeting?
17:09:41 * bauzas rolls out his eyes to melwitt
17:09:45 <alaski> heh
17:09:55 <alaski> or we can skip since I should be back right before the summit
17:09:58 <alaski> and we could continue then
17:10:33 <melwitt> haha :) I don't mind running it, but lately I haven't had anything to contribute unfortunately. so as long as other people have stuff to talk about, I can run it
17:11:38 <bauzas> well, I guess we could see if any discussion is needed
17:12:14 <alaski> yeah
17:12:20 <vineetmenon> +1
17:12:21 <alaski> there may be more to discuss once specs go up
17:12:27 <alaski> but you could play it by ear
17:12:49 <bauzas> sure thing, let's see later on
17:14:15 <alaski> while I'm out I'm going to try to write up lots and lots of docs on cells v2
17:14:19 <alaski> and some specs
17:14:38 <alaski> and as always comments/questions/criticism will be appreciated
17:15:14 <melwitt> cool
17:15:52 <bauzas> fine by me
17:16:04 <alaski> besides the build instance workflow my other big goal for next cycle is to get information out and written down.  I want to make it easy for people to understand what's happening and get involved
17:16:12 <bauzas> I saw also belmoreira and the CERN guys having some issues with the Flavor change
17:17:08 <alaski> bauzas: yeah.  I provided lalit an example to follow and haven't heard more
17:17:56 <alaski> oh
17:18:07 <alaski> https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/PAO-LDT-cells-patches was brought up a day or two ago
17:18:22 <alaski> I'm expecting a little more review load for cells changes coming up
17:18:23 <bauzas> alaski: yep, that was my 2nd point to mention
17:18:25 <melwitt> I have been meaning to play around with devstack and see if I can use my db connection switching patch along with a conductor-scheduler flow
17:18:59 <alaski> melwitt: that would be awesome
17:20:23 <alaski> melwitt: let me know if I can help on that
17:20:35 <alaski> anything else to discuss today?
17:21:23 <alaski> what should I put as the next meeting in the wiki?
17:21:40 <alaski> two weeks from now, or after summit?
17:21:41 <bauzas> so, Mitaka is opening now
17:21:58 <bauzas> I guess 2 weeks from now is a resonable timeslot
17:22:04 <alaski> okay
17:22:13 <bauzas> because we could see whether we need to provide something at the summit or no
17:22:33 <alaski> I'll put it as that, and it can be short if nothing comes up
17:22:35 <bauzas> but we can keep the cells talk to Friday
17:22:45 <alaski> bauzas: you and melwitt can fight about who gets to run it :)
17:22:58 <melwitt> heh :)
17:23:00 <bauzas> I'm a gentleman :p
17:23:23 <alaski> :)
17:23:28 <alaski> cool, if nothing else...
