16:02:46 <johnsom> TC election is coming up
16:02:52 <cgoncalves> the User Committee sent out an email to the -discuss list reminding folks that the OpenStack User Survey is still open. it will close on August 22

16:02:57 <cgoncalves> #link http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-discuss/2019-July/007898.html
16:03:25 <johnsom> Yes, please fill out the user survey, it helps some of us justify their jobs, etc.
16:03:53 <cgoncalves> hands up for johnsom as new TC member :)
16:03:54 <cgoncalves> o/
16:04:03 <johnsom> lol
16:04:12 <johnsom> Careful what you wish for....
16:04:57 <cgoncalves> I'm sure you'd excel at it! :)
16:05:15 <cgoncalves> any other announcements or comments on these two announcements?
16:05:59 <cgoncalves> ok, moving on
16:06:10 <cgoncalves> #topic Gerrit ACLs for Backport-Candidate
16:06:37 <johnsom> So far I kind of like having the the backport flag
16:07:09 <cgoncalves> so, gthiemonge brought to the core team attention that non-core reviewers cannot vote -1/0/+1 on backport candidate label
16:07:26 <johnsom> Hmm, this is a total oversight on my part if anyone can't vote +-1 for backports.
16:07:35 <cgoncalves> I think there's good value in having non-cores also contributing with their vote
16:07:48 <cgoncalves> would anyone disagree?
16:07:56 <johnsom> Opps, that was not the intent. Everyone should be able to vote on that
16:08:31 <cgoncalves> I submitted a patch to allow "Registered Users" to vote on backports
16:08:35 <cgoncalves> #link https://review.opendev.org/#/c/673764/
16:08:44 <cgoncalves> please have a look and vote
16:09:09 <cgoncalves> gthiemonge, thank you for bringing this to the core team attention!
16:09:35 <cgoncalves> looking forward to seeing everyone voting on backports, as well as doing the actual backport work :)
16:10:12 <johnsom> Yes, thanks for letting us know!
16:10:13 <cgoncalves> #topic Brief progress reports / bugs needing review
16:10:26 <cgoncalves> 1, 2, 3. go!
16:11:16 <johnsom> I have been busy finishing the octavia-lib get patches. We now have a fancy functional test that actually spins up the driver agent and uses the octavia-lib to get information.
16:11:50 <johnsom> I also setup scenario tests for the log offloading to check that off my list.
16:12:24 <colin-> refreshed a woefully outdated amp build job with the latest in stable/stein and have a control plane upgraded in-place in lab successfully to stein. testing it in preparation for upgrading across all envs
16:12:25 <cgoncalves> nice!
16:12:30 <johnsom> I plan to start on the long-lived-provider-processes RFE and then move to focus on fixing the failover flows to be better.
16:13:15 <johnsom> Plus I have been doing reviews and trying to stay on top of the priority patch list.
16:14:43 <cgoncalves> yeah, +30 patches were merged since last meeting.
16:15:09 <johnsom> Yeah, we are making super progress on getting reviews done, but there is still more work to do!
16:15:26 <cgoncalves> I think one import milestone was the merge of the multi-listener LBs
16:15:27 <cgoncalves> #link https://review.opendev.org/#/q/Idaccbcfa0126f1e26fbb3ad770c65c9266cfad5b
16:15:44 <cgoncalves> thanks to Michael and Adam for awesome work there
16:16:10 <johnsom> Yes, that has been needed for some time.  Thanks to Adam for helping me with that effort.
16:16:40 <colin-> yeah really stoked about that one!
16:18:03 <cgoncalves> I submitted small patches for different fronts: increase timeouts for the centos job, add missing lib dependencies to requirements.txt, switch fedora amp image to minimal + upgrade to fedora 29 (latest available in DIB), and other small fixes here and there
16:19:57 <cgoncalves> anyone else would like to share progress and/or raise patches needing review?
16:20:47 <cgoncalves> I mean, there are plenty of patches needing review :) I mean patches needing higher priority over others ;)
16:21:38 <cgoncalves> please also feel empowered to help maintaining the priority review list
16:21:40 <cgoncalves> #link https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/octavia-priority-reviews
16:22:40 <johnsom> Please add anything missing to the list or the "awaiting prioritization" section.
16:23:42 <cgoncalves> ok, should we move on to open discussion?
16:24:18 <cgoncalves> #topic Open discussion
16:25:32 <cgoncalves> would anyone like to see something discussing while we're all here? we have still 35 minutes left :)
16:26:45 <colin-> any official word on any vendors contributing provider drivers to the project? seems like it's been a while since someone asked
16:26:46 <johnsom> It would be super cool if we could merge this:
16:26:48 <johnsom> #link https://review.opendev.org/673681
16:26:58 <johnsom> So we can cut an octavia-lib release.
16:28:05 <cgoncalves> colin-, OVN and VMware have been working actively on their provider drivers
16:29:12 <cgoncalves> johnsom worked on the getters in octavia-lib. it was something needed by VMware and was discussed here on the channel
16:30:15 <johnsom> Yes. I think there is one other vendor that has a working driver in their lab.
16:33:09 <colin-> good to hear :) just clicked on the vendors section of the octavia piece of the user survey so it was top of mind
16:34:33 <cgoncalves> the providers framework is relatively new. even though it's been around since Rocky, Stein further consolidated that framework with the driver agent and now in Train with additional features in that area
16:35:19 <cgoncalves> yeah, the user survey may help vendors accelerate their provider drivers
16:36:24 <cgoncalves> the project has been very open to hear from vendors on their requirements, and working nicely with the two providers before mentioned (again, kudos to Michael)
16:38:34 <cgoncalves> oki doki. if there's nothing else to discuss today, we can close the meeting
16:39:25 <johnsom> o/ Thanks for running the meeting.
16:39:27 <cgoncalves> thank you, everyone! we meet again next week. the channel is open 24//7!
