Now that a lot of cloud software is in or on its way into Fedora, I
wonder how easy it is to actually make use of it. We seem to have
installation guides, but not much about how to actually employ the
cloud to do something useful. For instance, now that OpenShift is on
the feature list, Fedora's Cloud Guide could use some recipes for
OpenShift images on, say, OpenStack and Eucalyptus.
So in the interest of Getting Things Done, I suggest that we gather
for a high-bandwidth Fedora Activity Day to work on recipes for making
the various bits of cloud software in Fedora work in concert (i.e. for
making $PaaS work on $IaaS), and fix whatever bugs we encounter during
Which of you are interested in attending such an event? What would
you like to work on there? Specific goals are the most important
thing to have when planning a FAD to make the day the most likely to
result in something useful.
What do you all think?
I suggest checking out Aeolus  as part of this as well. Its a
software suite that we're developing for Fedora to enable cross cloud
communication and compatibility.
I can help coordinate some hacking on and using Aeolus as part of this.
We can add support for new cloud providers, develop some tools to launch
instances against cloud providers, write up some docs, and more.
