The following is an ordered list of our priorities from highest to lowest for the next six months.
- Build stability & mirror cache / improvements
- Basic processes & infrastructure e.g. CI/CD, Test/Validation, Releases, Dev, Bug handling, Security, Devstack, Zuul tests, unit tests, etc….
- Documentation e.g. project map, how to contribute, how to build/install, how to run, how to debug, ….
- Distro management - build, updates, automation, etc... How do we manage the package content? When / how do we upgrade to newer versions, newer versions of CentOS?
- We will continually update components for CVE's.
- We want to keep as current (as possible) on key components (kernel, qemu/libvirt, etc...). Is it time to move to CentOS 7.5? To newer versions of qemu/libvirt? Need the list of things to update (drivers, etc..). Bruce to spin up a new sub-projects for CentOS 7.5 and qemu updates
- Patch backlog analysis and plan to address / close forks
- Including how many patches per repo - some have very few, can we move to SRPM patches instead of repos?
- Disposition of StarlingX staging - find a long term home for those repos.
- Long term we want to move away from needing them, but there will always be a set of patches to carry
- We need a plan for handling our kingbird repo since it's not really kingbird. WR to create new repos that can hopefully be accepted
- Project decoupling - make the services more self contained
- KPI establishment, test automation and on-going improvements
- Reduce patch backlog - openstack and non-openstack
- Python 3 readiness - new code is python3, repo by repo / file by file work needed. zuul check jobs needed
- Container support
- Kubernetes integration
- Containerized OpenStack services
- Support for containerized workloads
- StarlingX Edge initiatives
- Beginnings of support for managing distributed Edge nodes, work being done by Greg in Edge working group
- Telemetry enhancements (collectd and gnocchi integration)
- PTP (Precision Time Protocol) support
- Networking features (containerized VNFs, ONAP integration, TSN (Time Senstive Networking), …)
- Intel-specific features: SGX, EPID, integrations with Intel platforms and software
- Package system independence
- Operating System independence
