Bugs (dtantsur, vdrok, TheJulia)
- (TheJulia) Ironic has moved to Storyboard. Dtantsur has indicated he will 
update the tool that generates these stats.
- Stats (diff between  12 Mar 2018 and 19 Mar 2018)
- Ironic: 225 bugs (+14) + 250 wishlist items (+2). 15 new (+10), 152 in 
progress, 1 critical, 36 high (+3) and 26 incomplete (+2)
- Inspector: 15 bugs (+1) + 26 wishlist items. 1 new (+1), 14 in progress, 0 
critical, 3 high and 4 incomplete
- Nova bugs with Ironic tag: 14 (-1). 1 new, 0 critical, 0 high
- critical:
    - sushy: https://bugs.launchpad.net/sushy/+bug/1754514 (basic auth broken 
when SessionService is not present)
- note: the increase in bug count is probably because now the dashboard tracks 
virtualbmc and networking-baremetal
- the dashboard was abruptly deleted and needs a new home :(
- use it locally with `tox -erun` if you need to
- HIGH bugs with patches to review:
- Clean steps are not tested in gate 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ironic/+bug/1523640: Add manual clean step ironic 
standalone test https://review.openstack.org/#/c/429770/15
    - Needs to be reproposed to the ironic tempest plugin repository.
- prepare_instance() is not called for whole disk images with 'agent' deploy 
interface https://bugs.launchpad.net/ironic/+bug/1713916:
    - Fix ``agent`` deploy interface to call ``boot.prepare_instance`` 
        - (TheJulia) Currently WF-1, as revision is required for deprecation.

    - switch documentation to hardware types:
        - api-ref examples: TODO
        - update https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Ironic/Drivers: TODO

    - started an ML thread tagging potentially affected projects: 

Redfish OOB inspection (etingof, deray, stendulker)

Zuul v3 playbook refactoring (sambetts, pas-ha)

Before Rocky

CI refactoring and missing test coverage
- not considered a priority, it's a 'do it always' thing
- 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: 
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/502886/ Rebase/update required
        - when previous are merged TODO (vsaienko)
            - Upload tinycore partitioned image to tarbals.openstack.org
            - Switch ironic to use tinyipa partitioned image by default
- Missing test coverage (all)
    - portgroups and attach/detach tempest tests: 
    - adoption: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/344975/
        - should probably be changed to use standalone tests
    - root device hints: TODO
    - node take over
    - resource classes integration tests: 
    - radosgw (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ironic/+bug/1737957)

Queens High Priorities

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
    - RFEs (Rocky)
        - https://bugs.launchpad.net/networking-baremetal/+bug/1749166
            - TheJulia, March 19th 2018: This RFE seems not to contain detail 
on what is desired to be improved upon, and ultimately just seems like 
refactoring/improvement work and may not then need an rfe.
        - https://bugs.launchpad.net/networking-baremetal/+bug/1749162
            - TheJulia, March 19th 2018: This RFE makes sense, although I would 
classify it as a general improvement. If we wish to adhere to strict RFE 
approval for networking-baremetal work, then I think we should consider this 
approved since it is minor enhancement to improve operation.

Rescue mode (rloo, stendulker)
- Status as on 12 Feb 2018
    - spec: 
    - code: 
    - ironic side:
        - all code patches have merged except for
            - Rescue mode standalone tests: 
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/538119/ (failing CI, not ready for reviews)
            - 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 - Done
            - 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) Posted https://review.openstack.org/554673
        - code patch: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/416487/ Needs revision
        - 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: 
https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/ironic-zuulv3-intree-tracking MERGED
- 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 

OpenStack Priorities

- TheJulia needs to just declare this done.

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.
- (TheJulia) It seems we might not have py3 compatibility with swift until the 
T- cycle.
- 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
    - (TheJulia, March 19th, 2018) Perhaps because of the different direction, 
we should consider ourselves done?


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.


OneView (???)
- Oneview presently does not have a subteam.

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,
