I do not want to hijack this thread with Solaris specific questions, but this point is a major sticking point for us too. To my knowledge, modifying devstack for anything not RHEL/Ubuntu is out of the question (they're not interested in supporting other OSes).
I think if the question is "does devstack want a review that adds the bash equivalent of #ifdef SOLARIS over everything and happened to sort-of work for someone once, with no CI and a guarantee of instantaneous bit-rot" the answer is predictable. If the question is more "does devstack want cleaner abstractions between platform and deployment backed up by CI and active involvement" I can not see that would be a bad thing. For mine, integrating with CI would be the *first* step. Until infrastructure was ready and able to run the devstack-gate scripts on Solaris/FreeBSD/... nodes and devstack had a non-voting job I personally would be very negative about merging changes for support. Frankly I'm not going to be building and maintaining my own FreeBSD/Solaris systems and hand-testing patches for them, so seeing something happening in CI is the only way I could be sure any proposed changes actually work before I spend time reviewing them. Even if devstack is not the right vehicle, integrating these platforms to the point that "git review" can run some sort of test -- anything really -- is going to be much more compelling for someone to +2 -i _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
