  • Weekly on-demand on Tuesdays at 1600 UTC
  • IRC channel: #openstack-meeting-3
  • Chair: pc_m (Paul Michali)

If you want to hold a meeting. Update this wiki page with agenda modifications, date of meeting desired, date of update, and then post a notice on the openstack-dev mailing list, at least 24 hours prior to the meeting start time. We have reserved this (new) channel on the IRC for the time/day of week.

Next meeting: TBD

Updated March 9th, 2015


  • StrongSwan functional job in experimental queue is upstreamed. Will make non-voting.
  • 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)...

  • StrongSwan supported on Fedora.
  • 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.
  • Documentation on how to use StrongSwan
  • Documentation on the differences between StrongSwan and OpenSwan
