Releasing Heat

This wiki page is meant for maintainers of the software.

Uninstall Openstack

sudo tools/openstack erase

Reboot machine

sudo shutdown -r now

Install software

Install Openstack and Heat using the master getting started guide for Fedora.

Please take care to setup Floating IPs as specified in the Floating IP Guide or the EIP templates will not function on a typical workstation.

Release criteria

  • The Getting Started Guide followed from start to finish operates properly.
  • The HA Howto followed from start to finish operates properly.
  • All templates without deb in their name run properly on F17.
  • All templates with deb in their name run properly on U12.04
  • Validate the HA template using F17 guests by following the HA Howto.

Note: Please create new JEOS images for all distributions. We need to test the latest cfntools as well.

What if errors are found?

  • If errors are found within the getting started guide execution, please fix them with a review.
  • If templates are non-functional, please file bugs and try to fix the problem. Please have someone else sanity check that the templates are not just broken on your system, perhaps because of running testing repo or old jeos images.
