Revision as of 19:48, 9 March 2015 by Paul Michali (talk | contribs) (Agenda)


  • Weekly on Tuesdays at 1500 UTC
  • IRC channel: #openstack-meeting-4
  • Chair: pc_m (Paul Michali)

So we have three votes for option (C), different day/time and on-demand, with times of 1600 UTC or later, 1630 UTC, and 1600 UTC on Tuesday. We have one vote for option (A), same day and time (Tuesday 1500), but on-demand. One vote for (D) include in Neutron meeting as on-demand topic (for now).

Since the consensus is on-demand, we'll need to decide how to determine when we want to hold the meetings (how to signal). It looks like the majority is 1600 UT, so unless there is a change, we can try to schedule future meetings using a different time.

Let's discuss at the next meeting.

Updated March 9th, 2015


  • StrongSwan functional job in experimental queue is out for review.
  • Need StrongSwan implementation review so we can make 3/19 deadline. Review 144391
  • Scenario test out for review. Review 159746
  • Need to decide on the meeting time/frequency.

Functional Testing

Once review is upstream, we can do 'check experimental' to test StrongSwan based functional tests. I'll make it non-voting and running always, as soon as possible.


Desperately need reviewers on this. Some open issues are: - Issues with status reported on connection create (work-around is retry mechanism). - Concern over whether a retry mechanism is really needed, and the possible side effects under scale/load. - Need testing for different cases (multiple connections, bringing connections up/down, connection failures).


Current bugs: VPNaaS bugs

Bucket List

Here are some ideas for tasks that need to be done (feel free to work on them - put your name by any you choose)...

  • The 'docs' target needs to be implemented for our repo (doc file was removed from Neutron).
  • The old netconn-api documentation needs to be migrated to WADL so can be included into Reference API Wiki.
  • Coverage, especially in database modules, is lacking.
  • Need functional tests for OpenSwan device driver (and StrongSwan driver)
  • Refactor duplication out of device driver code (OpenSwan, StrongSwan, Cisco, Vyatta) (Sridar R working on?)
  • The OpenSwan class should be separated from the ABC definition, and placed into a new module. (Brian Bowen working on)
  • Remove /n from execute method in utils.py so that duplicate code can be removed in VPN drivers.
