Essex OpenStack Global Hack-In
Facilator: Lloyd Dewolf of Piston Cloud Computing, firstname.lastname@example.org , and Tristan Goode of Aptira.
Essex is a release focused on improving the integrity of OpenStack, so our first Global Hack-In is right at the start of the release candidate cycle, the start of March, 2012. The event is focused on testing and getting familiar with the release and exploring areas outside of your expertise.
Collaborators will be working on resolving high priority bugs, and exploring, reviewing and testing OpenStack Essex.
Activities might include:
- Bug Triage
- Patch Review
- Peer Code Review
- Ad-hoc Testing of use cases
- Test Automation
This will be a loosely coupled, highly cohesive global event ;-)
There will be a dedicated #openstack-event IRC channel on Freenode.
Each event will be organized and ran by the local development user communities in the manner that best suits the local communities. Although, overlapping the timing of the events is desirable, more important is that the timing of the events serve the locals.
Running an Event
Hosting organizations should expect 15-40 contributors to work at the host's office collaborate on resolving high priority bugs, and exploring, reviewing and testing OpenStack Essex.
The host team should be made up of a site facilitator and a technical host.
- The site facilitator is responsible for making sure the doors are open (security notified), the lights are on, the temperature is comfortable, washrooms are decent, and there is food and drink.
- The technical host at a minimum someone who is familiar with devstack and has submitted a valid bug report to OpenStack, so they can at least organize people's exploration and testing around the area they've investigated before.
- Many hands make light work. It's a great idea to have a backup, and collaborators.
