Project Teams

Revision as of 23:59, 25 September 2014 by Smaffulli (talk | contribs) (Clarified the text to explain what is a program, added a concrete example)

What are programs ?

OpenStack Programs are the building blocks to achieve OpenStack's mission to produce the ubiquitous Open Source Cloud Computing platform that will meet the needs of public and private clouds regardless of size, by being simple to implement and massively scalable.

One can think of Programs as teams of people using tools (code repository, bug tracker, etc) and coordinated processes to deliver one or more project to achieve a clearly stated objective. For example, the Orchestration Program has a team of core reviewers responsible to drive development in code repositories for the Heat project, the Heat client, the heat-cfntools and other tools.

The Technical Committee has a mandate to review programs that wish to be included as official program of OpenStack.

The process new programs can follow to become part of OpenStack is described here.

The process new projects can follow to become an Integrated project and part of the OpenStack coordinated release is described here.

OpenStack official programs

The official list of OpenStack programs is a programs.yaml file maintained in the OpenStack Governance git repository. For convenience below is a list of links to wiki pages (NOTE: it may be incomplete):

Note: Projects in italic are currently (juno cycle) under incubation before inclusion in the 'Integrated' common release.
