Searchlight weekly report - Stein R-20

Image
Last week, we focused on investigating the use cases and some possibilities of implementing the plugin for Octavia and K8S. There's only one issue with [1] which fails the tox test for just changing the log texts. But, the tests are executed successfully in my local environment. My first guess is that there are some changes happened on the other upstream projects (projects that we have made plugins for). The plan is to search through other projects repositories for any new big changes that may affect Searchlight.

Everybody was quite busy with the OpenStack Berlin Summit this week so nothing big happened. There're only a few things worth mentioned:

Looks like the 2 core reviews lei-zh and Kevin_Zheng don't have time for Searchlight anymoreFortunately, sapd1 agreed to contribute to Searchlight project more frequently, at least for the Stein cycleTo welcome new contributors, we changed the meeting time [1]. And we had a meeting today with sapd1 and me [2]We agreed to make a use case for Searchlight with external resources such as K8S [2]sapd1 want to make a plugin for Octavia [2]We also agreed to move the search bar of Searchlight to the top of the Horizon dashboard [3]
I'm waiting for a new area of Searchlight!!! \m/\m/\m/

Viet OpenStack first webinar 5 Nov. 2018

Image
Yesterday, 5 November 2018, at 21:00 UTC+7, about 25 Vietnamese developers attended the very first webinar of the Vietnam OpenStack User Group [1]. This is part of a series of Upstream Contribution Training based on the OpenStack Upstream Institute [2]. The topic is "How to contribute to OpenStack". Our target is to guide new and potential developers to understand the development process of OpenStack and how they are governed.

The webinar was planned to do in Google Hang Out but with the free version, only maximum 10 people can join the video call. So, we decided to use Zoom [3]. But, because it limits to 45m per meeting for the free account, we did 2 sessions for the webinar. Thank the proactive and supports of the Vietnam OpenStack User Group administrators, the webinar went very well. Whatever works.

I uploaded the training's content on GitHub [4] and will update it based on the attendee's feedbacks. A couple feedbacks I got after the webinar are:

The week after Stein-1 milestone is a little bit quiet. There are only some trivial fix on spec typos, tox version, etc. 
The main target of Stein-2 milestone for Searchlight is to develop the use cases so that Searchlight can attract more users as well as contributors. The effort is lead by Thuy Dang [1]. Also, we need to keep up with the community's goal, the upgrade checker. The effort is being processed by the goal's champion [2]. I will review and merge the patch this week if it goes well.
