Etherpad with Detailed Notes

Video Recording Part 1

Support signature verification when create from image

  • Decision: We do wish to go forward with this feature.

*Agreement: We will add a config option for this.  It should be enabled by default.  If the signature is in the image we verify it, if not there is nothing to do.
*Agreement:  We will need to look close at where there are places in the code path that an image is being moved and make sure that we do appropriate checking.
*Action (tommylikehu):  Ensure that we have pointers the documentation explaining how to set up the keys and signing.
*Action (jungleboyj):  Add the spec to the spec review list:  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/384143/

Generic Backup

  • Decision: We do want to continue forward implementing this.

*Action (e0ne):  Create documentation that indicates where this works and does not.
*Action (e0ne):  Update the spec based on how the code is developed.
*Action (eharney):   To review the following patch:  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/543967/

Video Recording Part 2

Support restore backup to different volumes simultaneously

  • Decision: This is not something that we want to do as it really seems to be an inappropriate use of backup.

*Action (abishop):  To create a bug on narrowing the lock timing on creating a volume from the image cache. (method: _create_from_image_cache_or_download in cinder/volume/flows/manager/create_volume.py)

Automatic config generation

  • Decision: This needs to be investigated and understood as far as how this can be automated/updated.

*Agreement:  This is a relatively critical thing to work on given the user experience impact. 
*Action (patrickeast):  See if we can find the documentation for shared backend config options.
*Action (jungleboyj):  Figure out how to bring in the extension for oslo.sphinx.
*Action (jungleboyj):  Try migrating over the LVM driver to be automated as a first patch.
