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

Well, this is embarrassing...

We haven't been having much turn out for the meetings over the past several weeks. As a result, I sent a questionnaire out on February 24th to see if how we wanted to move forward with meetings. Well, there was an issue with my return address and the message never posted to the openstack-dev mailing list (and I didn't get a bounced mail response). Thinking there was no interest (sorry), I took the default action and gave VPN status as part of the March 2nd Neutron meeting.

Mathieu mentioned that he didn't see the email, so I re-sent the survey out. We'll have a meeting today, at the normal time and can discuss. Also, I'll give another week to see what people think and we can decide how to handle meetings forward going.

Logs and Minutes

Updated March 3rd, 2015


  • DevStack support for StrongSwan is now upstreamed.
  • Directory structure change for functional test area is upstreamed.
  • VPN agent refactoring has started - goal is to eliminate dependency on L3 agent.
  • New functional job being created for StrongSwan (out for review) - will run in experimental mode.
  • StrongSwan implementation is out for review - will target Ubuntu initially.
  • Scenario test out for review. Review 159746

Functional Testing

Plan is to have tests/functional/ hold shared functional test modules, tests/functional/openswan/ to hold OpenSwan specific tests, and tests/functional/strongswan/ to hold StrongSwan specific tests.

A new check-neutron-vpnaas-dsvm-functional-sswan is being created, to set up DevStack for StrongSwan operation.

The post-test-gate.sh script needs to be modified for support of scenario testing (159746).


Current bugs: VPNaaS bugs

We need to get StrongSwan commit tested out and reviewed, so please help out (https://review.openstack.org/144391). This commit will now only address Ubuntu, and a separate commit (later) will address Fedora support (as there are some differences).

Bring up any other bugs of interest.

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
  • 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.
