Defining OpenStack Core is a long term process and we are doing the work in progressive cycles. For reference, we have named the cycles.  This helps describe concrete deliverables for a cycle while allowing discussion of the broader long term issues.  For example, we may say that "item X is important to DefCore but out of scope for Elephant."  We have found that this approach to breaking down the problem is necessary to maintain community consensus because we are taking smaller bites of the larger challenge (aka eating the elephant).

This Committee was formed during the OpenStack Ice House Summit in Hong Kong by Board Resolution on 11/4.

Interop Working Group sets base requirements by defining 1) capabilities, 2) code and 3) must-pass tests for all OpenStack products. This definition uses community resources and involvement to drive interoperability by creating the minimum standards for products labeled "OpenStack."

Our mission is to define "OpenStack Core" that is supported by all implementations as chartered by the by-laws.

Objective / Scope

The Interop Working Group is around how the OpenStack brand is applied for commercial uses. Initially, this focus is on "what is core" and sustaining that definition over time. The scope will likely expand since brand is an ongoing concern related to specialized marks and other use cases.

There are three ways in which the community uses the OpenStack brand including referring to projects.

  1. General community use of the mark
  2. Project-specific use associated with development activity
  3. Governed commercial use

While the top two of these uses are out of scope for Interop Working Group, the committee has a need to participate in the discussion to ensure consistent and clear use.

How to Engage?

Meetings

Since September 23 2021, the Interop WG meetings have been held on meetpad on https://meetpad.opendev.org/interop at 4pm UTC every Thursday Convert time to your timezone: https://mytime.io/16pm/UTC

If you cannot use Meetpad, you can ping the #openstack-interop channel at 4pm UTC on Thursday. Latest meetings notes/minutes are posted on the Etherpad: https://etherpad.opendev.org/p/interop. Agenda is also posted to Etherpad: https://etherpad.opendev.org/p/interop and hashed at the start of the meeting.

Logs of past IRC meetings can be found here. Much Older meetings logs from when the interop group was called "Defcore" are here.

Current Committee Leaders

Current Leaders:

The interop WG is assisted by the "refstack" core group who help maintain various code repositories.
