Welcome to another month of the RDO Newsletter! I'm super excited that
we've started work on an all in one installation for TripleO - if you've
got use cases, thoughts, comments, or snarky feedback, we want to hear it,
of course. And, as always, we absolutely can't wait to see YOU in Vancouver
at OpenStack Summit NEXT MONTH! Housekeeping Items Volunteers Needed for
the RDO Booth at OpenStack Summit Vancouver

We are gearing up for OpenStack Summit Vancouver where we'll have our
regular presence within the Red Hat booth. This spring we'll continue the
ManageIQ / RDO demo we started last year and we'd love to see your demos,
too! If you've got something you'd like to demo via video OR LIVE because
you're not afraid of ANYTHING, sign up

We're also looking for people to spend their precious free time answering
questions <https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/rdo-vancouver-summit-booth> at
the RDO booth. If you're attending, please consider spending one or more of
your free moments with us. Questions run the gamut from "What's RDO?" to "I
found a bug in Neutron and need help troubleshooting it." Of course, you're
not expected to know everything and you can always keep IRC open to access
the RDO Community for help! Plus, you get cool stuff! If you sign up for
three or more shifts, we're going to hook you up with an RDO hoodie.

Reach out to Rain Leander on IRC (leanderthal) or email (r...@redhat.com)
for more information.
RDO Changes How to Package External Dependencies in RDO

Emilien Macchi brought an interesting discussion to the table regarding how
to handle the increasing number of dependencies outside of OpenStack,
including Ceph, MariaDB, Ansible, OVS, and more.

Follow along on the mailing list for more information:
Building Power Containers for TripleO

Michael Turek has proposed building containers for TripleO. The goal is to
have the first step of the TripleO job pipeline that builds the containers
and uploads them to Docker hub set up for ppc64le. The first step is to
identify the hardware that would make this possible. If you have any
insight into these issues or would like to help, chime in on the mailing
list: https://mail.rdoproject.org/thread.html/eb924d6d5ec84e81f92add066eb566
Simplifying Namespaces

Historically we’ve used different namespaces for releases in docker.io and
trunk.rdoproject.org registries, for example,

   - trunk.registry.rdoproject.org/pike/centos-binary-nova-api:
   - docker.io/tripleopike/centos-binary-aodh-api:

In rdoproject the namespace is "pike", but in docker.io is "tripleopike".
This creates a mess in our configuration files when setting release for
upgrades job.

Sagi Shnaidman recommended that going forward we use the same namespace -
tripleo(release) - in order to simplify configuration and reduce confusion.
Community News Tentative Test Dates Listed

The tentative test day schedule has been posted

Community Meetings

Every Wednesday at 15:00 UTC, we have the weekly RDO community meeting on
the #RDO channel on Freenode IRC. The agenda for this meeting is posted
each week in a public etherpad
<https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/RDO-Meeting> and the minutes from the
meeting are posted on the RDO website
<https://www.rdoproject.org/community/community-meeting/>. If there's
something you'd like to see happen in RDO - a package that is missing, a
tool that you'd like to see included, or a change in how things are
governed - this is the best time and place to help make that happen.
OpenStack News All-in-One Installer Discussion

During PTG Dublin, the idea of an All-In-One installer was discussed. The
core idea, as described in the OpenStack-Dev mailing thread
by Emilien Macchi, is to use 100% of the TripleO bits to deploy a single
node OpenStack very similar with what we have today with the containerized
undercloud and what we also have with other tools like Packstack or
Devstack. One of the problems that we're trying to solve here is to give a
simple tool for developers so they can both easily and quickly deploy an
OpenStack for their needs.

Thank You, TryStack!

The decision was recently made to end the TryStack services as of March 29,
2018. As Jimmy Mcarthur said in a recent email
thank you to those of you who were part of the TryStack community!

If you’re looking for new resources with which to try OpenStack, you can
find them at [openstack.org/start][http://www.openstack.org/start
including the Passport Program <https://www.openstack.org/passport>, where
you can test on any participating public cloud. If you’re looking to test
different tools or application stacks with OpenStack clouds, you should
check out Open Lab <https://openlabtesting.org>.

The Facebook group will be officially retired this month and folks can move
either into the OpenStack Facebook group
<https://www.facebook.com/groups/637144716425889/> or onto ask.openstack.org
