Where you see "?" feel free to just edit the wiki and add your item.

Here is the agenda for the next meeting:

  • #topic Stable Branches
    • nova's stable/ussuri and stable/train are blocked (due to latest virtualenv uses latest setuptools which removed use_2to3)
      • the future proof solution would be to pin virtualenv during tox install for stable branches, otherwise new errors can appear with every new release of setuptools, virtualenv, etc
      • until we decide about the right solution we can maybe set lower-constraints job as non-voting ( https://review.opendev.org/809955 )
    • probably placement branches have the same errors
  • #topic Sub/related team Highlights
    • Libvirt (bauzas)
  • #topic Open discussion
    • (gibi): release liaison role
    • (gibi): gathering opinions about the current lower-constraints failure.
      • bottom line: on stable branches we are installing tox which installs virtualenv which bundles setuptools unconstrained. This now leads to that we cannot install decorator 3.4.0 on stable any more as it depends on "user_2to3" from setuptools but the recent setuptools 58.0 removed support for that.
      • Options to resolve the situation
        • bump decorator major version from 3.4.0 to 4.0.0 on stable branches. Does it against stable policy?
        • pin virtualenv version on stable during tox install
        • disable lower-constraints testing
    • (add your points here)


There are also some Nova subteam meetings. See Nova#Nova_subteams for details.
