At the OpenStack Korea User Group last Friday (19 Oct 2018)

Last Friday, I had an opportunity to tell the story of Searchlight to the OpenStack Korea User Group in Seoul. My ultimate goal is to attract new contributors and to revive Searchlight. In just 30 minutes I worked people through the history of Searchlight, its architecture, and the current situation. Everybody seems to get the idea of why Searchlight needs their help. Even though not all of the attendants could understand my English, with the help of Ian Y. Choi, the organizer, and core of the OpenStack Docs and I18N team, the communication was great. Hopefully, I will have another chance to discuss with everybody more about Searchlight.

Searchlight weekly report - Stein R-26

It's been a busy week so there's not much work has been done this week (Stein R26, Oct 08-12). Here is some news from the community this week that somewhat affects the Searchlight project:
Assigning new liaisons to projects: basically, the TC will assign who takes care of which project. That person will update on this page the project's statuses, important activities etc.Proposed changes for library releases: in short, for each cycle-with-intermediary library deliverable, if it was not released during that milestone timeframe, the release team would automatically generate a release request early in the week of the milestone deadline.Proposed changes for cycle-with-milestones deliverables: to summarize the discussion:No longer be required to request a release for each milestoneBeta releases would be optionalRelease candidates would still require a tag. Need PTL or release liaison's "+1"Requiring a person for each team to add their name to a "manifest"…

Dongmyo Flea Market - A different part of Seoul

Living in Seoul (South Korea) is quite expensive if you don't know where to buy things. For most of the stuff you need in your house, you can buy them online (GMarket, Coupbang, 11st etc.) which will give you a lot of discounts. But, if you want to touch the goods before buying them, visiting the Dongmyo Flea Market may be a good option.

Locating near the Dongmyo station, Dongmyo Flea Market opens at 2pm on weekdays and 10am on weekends. They close before sundown and on every 2nd and 4th Tuesday. Basically, you can find everything you need from clothes to household goods with the price ranging from 1,000 won to 100,000 won (most of them are cheap).

You can even find vinyl records here.

Not sure where did he get all these things?
