Patchwork Onion delivers stability & innovation: the graphics that explains how we determine OpenStack Core

The OpenStack board, through the DefCore committee, has been working to define “core” for commercial users using a combination of minimum required capabilities (APIs) and code (Designated Sections). These minimums are decided on a per project basis so it can be difficult to visualize the impact on the overall effect on the Integrated Release. Rob Hirschfeld and Joshua McKenty have created the patchwork onion graphic to help illustrate how core relates to the integrated release.

OpenStack Upstream Training in Paris

We’re doing it again, bigger: the OpenStack Foundation is delivering a training program to accelerate the speed at which new OpenStack developers are successful at integrating their own roadmap into that of the OpenStack project. If you’re a new OpenStack contributor or plan on becoming one soon, you should sign up for the next OpenStack Upstream Training in Paris, November 1-2. Participation is strongly advised also for first time participants to OpenStack Design Summit. We’re doing it again before the Paris Summit, as we did in Atlanta, only bigger.

Using gerrymander, a client API and command line tool for gerrit

Over the past couple of months Daniel P. Berrange has worked on creating a python library and command line tool for dealing with gerrit. Gerrymander was born out of his frustration with the inefficiency of handling reviews through the gerrit web UI. Reviewers can use gerrymander to query gerrit for reviews and quickly get a list of comments filtering out comments by bots.
