This is my self-nomination to continue running as Nova PTL for the
If elected, this would be my fourth term as Nova PTL. While I try to
continually improve, at this point I have a fairly steady way of doing
things and most people are probably used to that by now. That's not to
say it's the best way of doing things, so I'm always open to getting
feedback on what people would like to see more (or less) of from me.
I really see this as a service role and I'm happy to continue being of
service for another release, which includes preparing for the PTG and
Forum, being aware of the schedule and communicating major changes or
plans to various groups (developers, operators, Foundation staff, etc).
I'm also happy to say that I'm fortunate enough to have an employer that
supports me doing this again and the amount of time it takes working
mostly full time in the community.
As for Queens content, we made a lot of progress again in Pike but some
things are left undone and that's what I'd like to focus on in Queens.
- Continue to evolve and solidify Nova's interaction with the Placement
service, which includes getting the allocations code out of the
compute service, fully supporting shared storage providers (and
testing that in the Ceph CI job), and finally adding the nested
resource providers support which will enable other features like vGPUs
and other hardware-accelerated configurations.
- Close some gaps in our multi-cell support, mainly related to up-calls
for reschedules during build and affinity/anti-affinity sanity checks,
and also work on real multi-cell deployment testing in a multi-node CI
- Finish the Cinder 3.27 API integration early (before the PTG) so we
can finally get volume multi-attach support.
- Cleanup the documentation now that it has moved in-tree.
Finally, a personal goal for me is going to be working on helping mentor
someone into the PTL role for the Rocky release, so if you are
interested in this role, please reach out.
Thanks for your consideration.
