15:03:59 <openstack> The meeting name has been set to 'xenapi'
15:04:09 <johnthetubaguy> so has anyone got anything today? shall we go through things as normal?
15:04:20 <BobBall> Mate's just popping in
15:04:40 <BobBall> Actually I've got one thing I saw on the ML that's worth raising
15:04:44 <matel> hi
15:04:48 <BobBall> Quite an interesting one
15:04:51 <johnthetubaguy> cool
15:05:01 <johnthetubaguy> I got to my hotel
15:05:04 <BobBall> it's this gerrit script
15:05:06 <johnthetubaguy> on the free 30mins wifi
15:05:19 <BobBall> subject gerrit tools
15:05:22 <johnthetubaguy> OK
15:05:26 <BobBall> oh - let's make sure the meeting is < 30 minutes then!
15:05:30 <johnthetubaguy> #topic Open Discussion
15:05:45 <BobBall> Just a very cool patch from Daniel P. Berrange about getting information on which changesets have been uploaded to gerrit
15:06:00 <BobBall> I've been waiting for him to come on IRC so I could just check if he knew about getting gerrit to watch the changes for you
15:06:29 <BobBall> because i've got that working for Xen and the way I read his email was that he might not have it for the libvirt stuff he's interested in
15:07:03 <BobBall> Incidentally, the watch I've got on Xen pointed out a tool that's just been changed to help delete orphan VMs that I didn't know existed!
15:07:39 <BobBall> https://review.openstack.org/#/c/53362/ That was this one :)
15:07:49 <johnthetubaguy> OK cool
15:08:09 <BobBall> so it's worth watching for gerrit_view for when daniel's changes are merged
15:08:16 <BobBall> hellova lot easier to find changes
15:08:35 <johnthetubaguy> hmm, yeah, I not really played with any of that stuff recently
15:08:53 <BobBall> well it's brand new isn't it?
15:09:17 <BobBall> ah well - doesn't matter
15:09:25 <BobBall> So - the other thing to talk about is xenserver-core
15:09:32 <johnthetubaguy> OK
15:09:38 <BobBall> Mate's been working on automatically setting up a Ubuntu environment for it
15:09:41 <BobBall> How's that going Mate?
15:10:04 <johnthetubaguy> interesting, Ubuntu? what bits Ubuntu?
15:10:11 <matel> It's okay, atm the package build is broken, but i am doing infrastructural stuff, so not there yet.
15:10:20 <matel> raring
15:10:25 <matel> xenserver-core on raring
15:10:38 <matel> really cool stuff, amazing.
15:10:43 <BobBall> I think the next build should pass - we brought back a bug when fixing iscsi stuff on xenserver-core
15:10:54 <BobBall> Speaking of which...
15:11:05 <matel> john: it's the new xcp-xapi
15:11:11 <BobBall> Some fun things have been found when trying to use xenserver-core with openstack
15:11:17 <johnthetubaguy> matel: cool, thanks
15:11:33 <BobBall> such as XenServer's use of patched open-iscsi
15:11:49 <BobBall> we were using a custom patch to allow us to use per-connection CHAP details
15:11:56 <BobBall> which openstack uses
15:12:02 <johnthetubaguy> hmm, fun
15:12:08 <BobBall> but we were doing it way before upstream supported it
15:12:19 <BobBall> so that's why we made our own in-house patch (bad XenServer!)
15:12:39 <BobBall> Anyway - it's highlighting all of the things that we're having to fix anyway in the upstreaming / open sourcing efforts
15:12:44 <johnthetubaguy> ah yes, good to fix that
15:13:02 <BobBall> that one had already been fixed as it happens - but there is another one with the custom changes to LVM which we're having to work around too
15:13:46 <BobBall> The current status is we have xenserver-core hosts which run VMs started through openstack (although exercises.sh currently fails as we have the wrong version of the SM code which is still relying on our custom patches for open-iscsi)
15:13:50 <BobBall> watch this space for the fix to that
15:14:11 <johnthetubaguy> cool, so everything but volumes?
15:14:21 <johnthetubaguy> in the exercises?
15:14:24 <BobBall> yes
15:14:27 <BobBall> well
15:14:35 <BobBall> volumes and euca which both fail on volumes
15:14:45 <matel> I think we are really close.
15:14:57 <BobBall> I can smell victory
15:15:05 <johnthetubaguy> its a nice smell
15:15:30 <BobBall> So we're expecting to have a demo of xenserver-core doing live migrations for the summit
15:15:37 <johnthetubaguy> I guess, summit wise, its worth saying the session is looking well prepared now
15:15:53 <johnthetubaguy> live-migrate is always a cool demo
15:16:31 <BobBall> Live-migration with a xen-based hypervisor running on  your own distro is even cooler.
15:16:37 <johnthetubaguy> true
15:16:55 <BobBall> Yeah
15:17:03 <BobBall> in some ways you living so close is a shame
15:17:13 <johnthetubaguy> so any more for any more?
15:17:15 <BobBall> because it means we had a real meeting to walk through the summit and it wasn't on IRC!
15:17:22 <johnthetubaguy> lol
15:17:24 <BobBall> But anyone who wants to see the output can check out the etherpad
15:17:36 <johnthetubaguy> you got the link handy?
15:17:41 <BobBall> #link https://etherpad.openstack.org/IcehouseXenAPIRoadmap
15:17:44 <BobBall> I do indeed
15:17:44 <johnthetubaguy> thanks
15:18:33 <BobBall> I don't have more
15:18:40 <BobBall> as we said - much of it was discussed offline
15:18:41 <johnthetubaguy> me neither
15:18:54 <johnthetubaguy> are we all good for next week?
15:18:58 <matel> suresure
15:19:16 <BobBall> Although I'm not
15:19:19 <BobBall> I'm on hodaliy
15:19:21 <BobBall> holiday*
15:19:27 <BobBall> I need one - hence the spelling.
15:19:31 <johnthetubaguy> ah, no worries, enjoy
15:19:43 <johnthetubaguy> anything more before the summit?
15:20:06 <BobBall> nah
15:20:09 <BobBall> think we're good
15:20:11 <johnthetubaguy> sweet
15:20:14 <johnthetubaguy> have a good day all
15:20:19 <BobBall> you too
15:20:22 <johnthetubaguy> see you next week or in HK
