20:00:11 <johnsom> Hi folks!
20:00:14 <longstaff> hi
20:00:28 <johnsom> Short agenda today, but I'm sure some topics will take a bit of time.
20:00:36 <nmagnezi> o/
20:01:13 <johnsom> #topic Announcements
20:01:44 <johnsom> So, we are in the window for Queens RC2 if we decide to cut one.  This would be an update to what would become the Queens release.
20:01:45 <jniesz> hi
20:02:26 <johnsom> I am thinking we need to cut an RC2 for octavia-dashboard to add some more translations.
20:02:58 <johnsom> I have proposed the "deleting a DELETED" patch, but want your feedback on if that is a big enough bug to get into Queens or not.
20:03:09 <johnsom> #link https://review.openstack.org/544526
20:03:34 <johnsom> Let me know your thoughts.
20:04:19 <johnsom> Also if there are any other hot bugs that we should get into Queens please let me know as soon as possible (like today).
20:04:56 <johnsom> Otherwise, we are done on Queens.  If we decide to backport that fix and get it merged, we could open Rocky today/tomorrow.
20:05:05 <nmagnezi> at a very first glance this patch does not seem to be to intrusive, but it does bring value. I'll give it a proper review but I tend to agree that it would be good to include it in Queens
20:05:22 <johnsom> Ok, thank you for the feedback
20:05:47 <johnsom> Next up is my regular announcement about the PTG
20:05:54 <johnsom> #link https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/octavia-ptg-rocky
20:06:20 <johnsom> I have loaded up some more topics that were on the top of my head, please add to them, comment, etc.
20:06:34 <johnsom> I will then work on a rough schedule
20:07:18 <johnsom> Finally, the PTL elections closed. As I was the only person running for Octavia I will be your PTL for Rocky as well.
20:07:59 <johnsom> #link https://governance.openstack.org/election/
20:08:09 <jniesz> congrats : )
20:08:15 <johnsom> Thanks
20:08:18 <rm_work> \o/
20:08:26 <nmagnezi> \o/
20:08:31 <johnsom> I really hope someone will be interested for the next series.....  Hint, hint
20:08:49 <rm_work> Do you count as someone?
20:08:54 <nmagnezi> Ha
20:08:57 <johnsom> I don't think they have selected an "S" name yet.
20:09:01 <rm_work> Because I hope so too
20:09:39 <johnsom> Any other announcements today?
20:10:18 <johnsom> #topic Brief progress reports / bugs needing review
20:10:41 <johnsom> So.. I started working on the gates getting them cleaned up for the tempest jobs.
20:11:04 <johnsom> This is where I looked at the current state of the octavia-tempest-plugin and got worried.
20:11:31 <johnsom> I have proposed a revert for the initial load balancer tests:
20:11:33 <johnsom> #link https://review.openstack.org/543030
20:11:49 <johnsom> and started building them back up from where Jude left them:
20:11:53 <nmagnezi> sorry to ask, I didn't follow this
20:11:56 <johnsom> #link https://review.openstack.org/543034
20:11:59 <nmagnezi> what was wrong with those tests?
20:12:19 <johnsom> When I dug into what happened there this is what I found:
20:12:35 <johnsom> (we did have a discussion in the channel about this before I started all of this work)
20:12:59 <johnsom> The base patches Jude started were very much in line with the new tempest-plugin style and libraries.
20:13:15 <nmagnezi> apologies, I was offline for many days lately
20:13:25 <johnsom> Then along the way some of the test code from neutron-lbaas/octavia tempest tests overwrote the work Jude did
20:13:48 <johnsom> nmagnezi Yeah, no problem, just wanted to comment that I didn't just "DO" this...
20:14:06 <nmagnezi> oh, ok :)
20:14:08 <johnsom> It was bringing back in bad practices we had in the *old* tests
20:14:45 <johnsom> So, I jumped in, starting with Jude's base and started work to finish out the load-balancer tests
20:14:57 <johnsom> #link https://review.openstack.org/543034
20:15:09 <rm_work> I think that is the correct approach
20:15:15 <rm_work> they were getting ... strangely complex
20:15:24 <johnsom> I am very strictly following the new tempest guidelines: https://docs.openstack.org/tempest/latest/plugin.html
20:15:27 <johnsom> #link https://docs.openstack.org/tempest/latest/plugin.html
20:16:04 <nmagnezi> johnsom, nice, thanks for the detailed answer!
20:16:04 <johnsom> I am sorry this patch is a bit large. It has a bunch of baseline stuff in it.
20:16:26 <johnsom> I plan to finish the basic load balancer tests this week.
20:16:39 <johnsom> Are there any questions or comments about this?
20:17:15 <johnsom> I felt really bad about this mid-work restart, but I think it will benefit us going forward.
20:18:22 <johnsom> Sadly this is an area we got spread a bit thin and made a mistake
20:18:45 <johnsom> Ok, well, I guess I will work to finish these up.
20:19:14 <johnsom> nmagnezi I'm not sure if Alex checks these logs, I know he had an interest in these tests, so it might be good to make sure he is aware of this work.
20:19:29 <johnsom> (he isn't online at the moment)
20:19:46 <nmagnezi> johnsom, I'll make sure to bring this to his attention tomorrow.
20:19:58 <nmagnezi> indeed he would be interested in this
20:20:19 <johnsom> Ok, any other progress updates?
20:20:38 <nmagnezi> johnsom, i have a question about the providers patch
20:20:53 <nmagnezi> #link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/484325/
20:20:58 <johnsom> Grin, yes, I something I have been meaning to look at
20:21:14 <nmagnezi> It's been a while since it got any updates.. :<
20:21:22 <johnsom> I haven't looked at it yet, but what is the question?
20:22:00 <nmagnezi> just wanted to know if we are aware of what's going on with this, did we lose that dev resource?
20:22:14 <johnsom> Yeah, I am thinking that once I get this initial load balancer tempest patch in good shape I will shift focus to getting an initial provider driver patch in place.
20:22:31 <johnsom> I am not sure.
20:22:57 <johnsom> It is something I'm interested in contributing to, so willing to pick it up in needed
20:24:00 <nmagnezi> kk
20:24:08 <nmagnezi> no additional questions
20:24:18 <johnsom> After that, back to Act/Act
20:24:40 <johnsom> If we have any Ryu experts, please raise your hand, I have some questions...  grin
20:25:21 <johnsom> #topic Open Discussion
20:25:26 <johnsom> Other topics today?
20:26:14 <rm_work> johnsom: you might be able to hit up some internal RAX folk, I know some who were working with Ryu
20:27:02 <johnsom> Ok, yeah, PM me some names, that would be great. I have been reading and researching, but an hour with someone would accelerate the process.
20:27:07 <rm_work> yeah kk
20:27:32 <johnsom> I know *what* needs to happen, just working on how best to do it.
20:28:28 <johnsom> I did a review of the L3 Act/Act flows last night. It looks to be coming along nicely
20:29:08 <johnsom> No other topics today?
20:29:24 <jniesz> Thanks for feedback on AA
20:29:29 <johnsom> If not, I will close out the meeting and let folks work.
