We are glad to present this week's priorities and subteam report for Ironic. As 
usual, this is pulled directly from the Ironic whiteboard[0] and formatted.

This Week's Priorities (as of the weekly ironic meeting)

Weekly priorities
- Fix the multitenant grenade - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ironic/+bug/1744139

- CI and docs work for classic drivers deprecation (see status below)
- Required Backports/Nice to haves below
- CRITICAL bugs (must be fixed and backported to queens before the release)
    - ironic-inspector: rare crash when ironic port list returns HTTP 400 
        - the actual bug is that ironic returns 400 on port.list when node 
deletion races with it

    - (rloo) needs some direction
    - may be fixed as part of https://review.openstack.org/#/c/460564/

- Standalone CI tests (vsaienk0)
    - next patch to be reviewed, needed for 3rd party CI: 
    - localboot with partitioned image patches:
        - Ironic - add localboot partitioned image test:

High Priorities

Neutron event processing (vdrok, vsaienk0, sambetts)
- status as of 27 Sep 2017:
    - spec at https://review.openstack.org/343684, ready for reviews, replies 
from authors
    - WIP code at https://review.openstack.org/440778

Routed network support (sambetts, vsaienk0, bfournie, hjensas)
- status as of 12 Feb 2018:
    - All code patches are merged.
    - One CI patch left, rework devstack baremetal simulation. To be done in 
        - This is to have actual 'flat' networks in CI.
    - Placement API work to be done in Rocky due to:
    Challenges with integration to Placement due to the way the integration was 
done in neutron.
    Neutron will create a resource provider for network segments in Placement, 
then it creates an os-aggregate
    in Nova for the segment, adds nova compute hosts to this aggregate. Ironic 
nodes cannot be added to host-aggregates.
    I (hjensas) had a short discussion with neutron devs (mlavalle) on the 
    There are patches in Nova to add support for ironic nodes in 
        - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/526753/ allow compute nodes to be 
associated with host agg
        - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/529135/ (Spec)
    - Patches:
        - CI Patches:
        - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/392959/ Rework Ironic devstack 
baremetal network simulation

Rescue mode (rloo, stendulker)
- Status as on 12 Feb 2018
    - spec: 
    - code: 
    - ironic side:
        - all code patches have merged except for
            - Add documentation for rescue mode: 
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/431622/ MERGED
            - Devstack changes to enable testing add support for rescue mode: 
                - We need to be careful with this, in that we can't use 
python-ironicclient changes that have not been released.
            - Update "standalone" job for supporting rescue mode: 
            - Rescue mode standalone tests: 
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/538119/ (failing CI, not ready for reviews)
        - Can't Merge until we do a client release with rescue support (in 
            - Tempest tests with nova: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/528699/
            - Run the tempest test on the CI: 
                - succeeded in rescuing: 
    - nova side:
        - https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/ironic-rescue-mode:
            - approved for Queens but didn't get the ironic code (client) done 
in time
            - (TheJulia) Nova has indicated that this is deferred until Rocky.
        - To get the nova patch merged, we need:
            - release new python-ironicclient
            - update ironicclient version in upper-constraints (this patch will 
be posted automatically)
            - update ironicclient version in global-requirement (this patch 
needs to be posted manually)
        - code patch: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/416487/
        - CI is needed for nova part to land
            - tiendc is working for CI

Clean up deploy interfaces (vdrok)
- status as of 5 Feb 2017:
    - patch https://review.openstack.org/524433 needs update and rebase

Zuul v3 jobs in-tree (sambetts, derekh, jlvillal, rloo)
- etherpad tracking zuul v3 -> intree: 
- cleaning up/centralizing job descriptions (eg 'irrelevant-files'): DONE
- Next TODO is to convert jobs on master, to proper ansible. NOT a high 
priority though.
    - (pas-ha) DNM experimental patch with "devstack-tempest" as base job 

Graphical console interface (pas-ha, vdrok, rpioso)
- status as of 8 Jan 2017:
    - spec on review: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/306074/
    - there is nova part here, which has to be approved too
    - dtantsur is worried by absence of progress here
        - (TheJulia) I think for rocky, it might be worth making it a prime 
focus, or making it a background goal.

BIOS config framework (dtantsur, yolanda, rpioso)
- status as of 8 Jan 2017:
    - spec under active review: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/496481/

Ansible deploy interface (pas-ha)
- spec: 
- status as of 5 Feb 2017:
    - code merged, CI coverage via the standalone job
    - docs: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/525501/

OpenStack Priorities

Python 3.5 compatibility (Nisha, Ankit)
- Topic: 
    - this include all projects, not only ironic
    - please tag all reviews with topic "goal-python35"
- TODO submit the python3 job for IPA
- for ironic and ironic-inspector job enabled by disabling swift as swift is 
still lacking py3.5 support.
- anupn to update the python3 job to build tinyipa with python3
    - (anupn): Talked with swift folks and there is a bug upstream opened  
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/401397 for py3 support in swift. But this is 
not on their priority
    - Right now patch pass all gate jobs except agent_- drivers.
- updating setup.cfg (part of requirements for the goal):
    - ironic: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/539500/ - MERGED
    - ironic-inspector: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/539502/ - MERGED

Deploying with Apache and WSGI in CI (pas-ha, vsaienk0)
- ironic is mostly finished
    - (pas-ha) needs to be rewritten for uWSGI, patches on review:
        - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/507067
- inspector is TODO and depends on 
    - delayed as the HA work seems to take a different direction


Inspector (dtantsur)
- trying to flip dsvm-discovery to use the new dnsmasq pxe filter and failing 
because of bash 
- follow-ups being merged/reviewed; working on state consistency enhancements 
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/510928/ too (HA demo follow-up)

Bifrost (TheJulia)
- Also seems a recent authentication change in keystoneauth1 has broken 
processing of the clouds.yaml files, i.e. `openstack` command does not work.
    - TheJulia will try to look at this this week.


Cisco UCS (sambetts) Last updated 2018/02/05
- Cisco CIMC driver CI back up and working on every patch
- Cisco UCSM driver CI in development
- Patches for updating the UCS python SDKs are in the works and should be 
posted soon

Until next week,
