Project notes https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/stx-multios


Our goals for this sub-project are:

  • Enable StarlingX to be built on and run on multiple host operating systems
    • Our initial target operating systems are CentOS (currently supported), Clear Linux and Ubuntu
  • Enable StarlingX to provide software management services for multiple package file formats
    • This requires building abstraction layers in the StarlingX Flock to allow package management to be defined per-OS (or per package manager)


This work is dependent on work being done in the Python2 to Python3 Transition and Devstack Integration sub-projects, and will become easier as the Upstreaming project gets the StarlingX forks closed.

Work items

  • All Storyboard stories created for this team should use the tag "stx.multios" and the prefix [MultiOS].
  • The work items for this team can be found in Storyboard here.
  • The bugs open against the project can be found in TBD
