16:00:28 <gthiemonge> Hi
16:00:31 <johnsom> o/
16:02:12 <gthiemonge> #topic Announcements
16:02:38 <gthiemonge> I don't have announcement for this week
16:03:06 <gthiemonge> RC1 for Xena was last week, we don't expect to have another RC
16:03:23 <johnsom> Cool, I don't think I have anything this week either.
16:04:49 <gthiemonge> #topic Brief progress reports / bugs needing review
16:05:15 <gthiemonge> I'm still working on the fix for member networks with multiple subnets that rm_work started
16:05:29 <gthiemonge> I'm trying to get more control on the creation of the port for members
16:06:14 <johnsom> +1
16:06:18 <gthiemonge> (we delegate this work to nova/neutron, and the result seems inconsitent - some unnecessary subnets are plugged)
16:06:27 <johnsom> I have been doing reviews mostly.
16:07:02 <gthiemonge> but creating ports requires changes in the flow (we need to explicity delete them, when deleting members or when triggering failover)
16:07:16 <gthiemonge> so I think the patch will be bigger :D
16:07:48 <johnsom> Yep, it's a big one I'm sure. But an important one
16:08:46 <gthiemonge> I may try to split it into multiple patches, but I don't know if that makes sense
16:09:34 <johnsom> Yeah, sometimes you can, sometimes you can't.
16:09:51 <gthiemonge> or you don't want
16:11:18 <gthiemonge> #topic Open Discussion
16:11:34 <gthiemonge> any other topics?
16:12:01 <johnsom> Nothing from me. Thanks for taking on that beast of a task for member subnets
16:12:10 <gthiemonge> ;-)
16:12:15 <gthiemonge> maybe one last thing:
16:12:46 <gthiemonge> I proposed to backport the "generic interface management" patch to wallaby
16:13:09 <gthiemonge> #link https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/octavia/+/807310
16:13:39 <johnsom> Ah yeah. I will take a look. That is a big one too
16:13:40 <gthiemonge> I consider that it's a fix for "modern" distributions that dropped old fashion way to configure network
16:13:54 <gthiemonge> backport went smoothly
16:14:18 <gthiemonge> my concern is that people may think that it's a new feature
16:15:25 <johnsom> Well, it fixes some issues we have had with the distro network management tools not behaving correctly.
16:15:41 <johnsom> Like "already exists" issues when doing the ifup
16:15:52 <gthiemonge> my other concern is that this commit fixes an issue that someone fixed in an open review:
16:15:56 <gthiemonge> #link https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/octavia/+/794602
16:16:35 <gthiemonge> so we may have to add this last patch on stable branches that will not have the "generic iface mgmt" stuff
16:17:45 <johnsom> Hmm, yeah. You could also give co-author on the wallaby for the author of the other patch.
16:17:57 <gthiemonge> so I don't know if we want to backport the huge patch to all stable branches
16:18:07 <gthiemonge> johnsom: oh yes
16:19:19 <johnsom> Yeah, I guess the question is of need. Does anyone need it on the other stable branches. For the most part, the older distros work. I guess it's also a question of will it make other backports harder, etc.
16:19:52 <gthiemonge> good point
16:20:07 <johnsom> I know we need it for wallaby and newer for sure. It's going farther back I'm not sure about.
16:20:27 <gthiemonge> the fix for member networks with multiple subnets needs that patch
16:20:48 <johnsom> Yeah, so that may push us to backport farther.
16:22:09 <gthiemonge> Ok, I'll propose the backports (and will add the co-author line) and core reviewers will give us their feedback if they think it could be an issue
16:22:28 <johnsom> Sounds like a plan
16:22:39 <johnsom> I will have a look at the wallaby patch after the meeting
16:23:45 <gthiemonge> thanks johnsom
16:24:19 <gthiemonge> anything else?
16:24:34 <johnsom> Not from me
16:25:04 <gthiemonge> Ok! Thank you Folks!
