More progress this week:

  - The Diablo 4 milestone was release upsteam:

      https://lists.launchpad.net/openstack/msg03747.html

  - Thanks to the awesome combo of Chris Lalancette and Steven Dake 
    reviewing the packages, we have openstack-glance and 
    python-novaclient in updates-testing for F16:

      https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/python-novaclient-2.6.1-0.4.89bzr.fc16
      https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/openstack-glance-2011.3-0.5.d4.fc16

    Your karma is needed! :-)

  - I've done more work on the Nova packaging:

      https://bugzilla.redhat.com/707199

    and am begging for similarly awesome volunteers to review it

  - I updated the "Getting started" wiki page to reflect some of the 
    packaging changes and the fact that python-migrate, novaclient and 
    glance are no longer needed in the yum repo:

      https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Getting_started_with_OpenStack_Nova

  - I've filed a bunch of bugs against glance and novaclient, and 
    linked them from here:

      https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/OpenStack#Packages

  - My sqlalchemy 0.7.x migration fixes have been merged upstream into 
    Nova:

      https://code.launchpad.net/~markmc/nova/sqlalchemy-0.7-migration-fixes

  - My logrotate related fix has been included in upstream glance:

      https://github.com/openstack/glance/commit/ecbcc09ce5c33

  - I requested static UIDs and GIDs for swift, glance and nova:

      https://bugzilla.redhat.com/732442

  - I filed a bug requesting python-eventlet be updated:

      https://bugzilla.redhat.com/733238

  - I sent my python migrate fix upstream:

      http://code.google.com/p/sqlalchemy-migrate/issues/detail?id=128

     but I've gotten a workaround for it into Nova now, so it's moot.

  - There was a massive packaging discussion upstream to which I tried
     to add my non-Debian/Ubuntu take :-)

Finally, I'm still hoping some friendly soul will join me as
co-maintainer of these packages. Do jump in, the water's warm!


Cheers,
Mark.
