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" 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?


Since April 30 2021, the Interop WG meetings have been held on meetpad on https://meetpad.opendev.org/interop at 4pm UTC every Friday Convert time to your timezone: https://mytime.io/16pm/UTC

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.
