Etherpad with Detailed Notes


Cinder T-Shirt Discussion

  • Decision: Team does want to do a Cinder team T-Shirt with just our new Logo on the front.
  • Action: Jay to work on making this happen before the next PTG.

Replication Failback

  • ""Action:"" (jbernard) Going to propose a spec that describes a two step process for promoting a backend to be primary for failback.
  • ""Action:"" (jungleboyj) Add the spec, when available, to the priority review list so that this get attention early in the release.
  • ""Action:"" (jungleboyj) Follow up with Xing to find out how this impacts group replication.

Using Constants for Microversions

""Agreement:"" We want to move to using constants to track microversions. ""Agreement:"" Reviewers in the future should enforce using constants for microversions. ""Action:"" (smcginnis) A patch will be posted with a proposal on how to do this. Core team needs to review and use it as the example going forward. ""Action:"" (smcginnis) Share the review with Ben so that Manila can do something similar.

Review of Base Required Features

""Agreement:"" Nothing needs to be changed right now. As features continue to evolve we can readdress again in the future.


Default Policy in Code

""Agreement:"" We don't want to mix changing our policy granularity, defaults, naming, etc. at the same time as moving the default in code. ""Agreement:"" Do patches as a dependency chain. ""Action:"" (TommyLikeHu) Existing patches will be updated soon based on the agreed upon items above. ""Action:"" Core team to work to merge these as soon as possible to avoid merge conflicts, etc.

Multi-Attach Discussion

""Info:"" Concerns about each driver needing changes to support multi-attach. Could be handled by having a capability of multi_attach = False by default unless drivers enable it. ""Agreement:"" Need some way for drivers to indicate when a connection is shared. This can then be used to help Brick handle things properly. ""Agreement:"" Need good documentation on how this works so that the driver maintainers can properly implement it.
