It's because it's a two-way street: Linux distributions support OpenStack (mainly by packaging all OpenStack requirements) and OpenStack supports distributions (mainly by supporting the versions of Python they ship). Depending on what you actually mean by "support", the list changes. > So far the closest I've come is: > 1) http://docs.openstack.org/index.html > We have: > Installation Guide for Debian 7 > Installation Guide for openSUSE 13.1 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server > 11 SP3 > Installation Guide for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, CentOS 7, and Fedora > 20 > Installation Guide for Ubuntu 14.04 That's the list of distributions that have install instructions in our doc. There are distributions out there packaging OpenStack which did not contribute this documentation (Gentoo comes to mind). > 2) > https://github.com/openstack-dev/devstack/blame/master/doc/source/overview.rst#L18-L33 > which defines our CI strategy as: > Ubuntu LTS + dev (14.04 and 14.10) > Fedora $current and $current-1 (20 and 19) > RHEL $current (7) That's systems we run our own CI tests on and we pledge not to break. That said we run those tests from Python source code, not from distribution packages, so that pledge is obviously limited. > These 2 lists don't have 100% overlap, so perhaps the union would be a > reasonable starting place? If you are after "the list of distributions with a well-known packaging of OpenStack" then yes, the union of those two lists + Gentoo sounds accurate to me. -- Thierry Carrez (ttx) _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
