* Matt Domsch proposed an OpenStack hackfest at FUDCon Blacksburg:
If you're planning on going to FUDCon, please come along to the
* Russell Bryant switched Nova to MySQL by default and added a really
sweet helper script for setting up the DB:
And we're discussing whether to also switch all the other services
over to MySQL by default.
* Cole Robinson posted his notes on getting Horizon working:
The main issue seems to be getting keystone integration working,
with is becoming a common theme for a lot of us.
* Thankfully, Alan Pevec is working on figuring out how to get
keystone integration working with all of the various services and
will post instructions soon.
* Alan has also pushed the latest keystone release (2011.3.1) into
testing for F16 and EPEL6:
Please test and give karma!
* Pádraig Brady has been making great progress on getting OpenStack
working with EPEL6. Everything is now in good enough shape that the
core test cases from our previous Test Day now work on EPEL.
With Toshio, Steve Traylen and Alan Pevec's help, we have
python-sqlalchemy0.7, python-webob1.0 and python-nose1.1 in EPEL
Pádraig also had to fix a number of issues with python-migrate to
make it work okay with sqlalchemy0.7.
He is looking for karma on:
Also of interest is his notes on handling multiple versions of
Python eggs, which hopefully should be included in the packaging
* As part of the EPEL work, Pádraig has posted patches upstream to
support the use of libguestfs in Nova:
This is needed because the RHEL6 kernel doesn't have nbd support,
but also just because libguestfs rocks! :)
* Bob Kukura and Chris Wright have been keeping an eye on packaging
related changes happening in Quantum upstream. These changes will
all end up in the Essex release:
* Pete Zaitcev is continuing to test Swift and has just about got
over the speed bump that is keystone:
* Russell Bryant and William Henry have continued making good progress
on adding a Qpid RPC driver to Nova
* Angus Salkeld was seeing glance api crashing:
The underlying issue here, though, turned out to be that the
nova-volumes service was failing on startup because the loopback
image based nova-volumes LVM volume group wasn't available.
* I've proposed a new python module for handling CLI options and
configuration files upstream, which will hopefully help us unify how
this works across all OpenStack projects:
* I've been added to the Nova core team upstream, which is pretty fun:
* The Open vSwitch kernel module has been posted upstream:
This means we're one step closer to being able to include OVS into
Fedora and use it with Quantum. Chris Wright has begun
investigating Open vSwitch packaging.
