Hey Everyone, Anteaya was kind enough to ask in the Cinder channel about some tests that were added to the gate for SheepDog . I would like to know why there's no process for the projects that are impacted by these changes to have input? At the very least if someone is adding test requirements against the Cinder project for example it should have votes on the review from Cinder Core members.
Nobody on the Cinder team seems to have had any information regarding this change (or the Ceph config that was added for that matter). It seems odd to me that I hear discussions about the burden on infra resources regarding the number of projects in OpenStack and what's taking place there but then at the same time that group merges things like this? If there have been discussions with the Cinder PTL in these cases then forgive me, I wasn't aware and I'll just move along. My other question is, why is anybody setting up and maintaining their own CI system? Couldn't I just setup a stackforge project that deploys my software in an Instance and push it to infra as well? Doesn't this seem a bit wrong to anybody else, using Foundation resources for my own gain? Also, I think it creates some confusion; we either have a reference implementation or we don't. If somebody wants to propose changing what the reference implementation is that's fine but that should be handled by the affected project not by a change submitted to the infra projects. I've actually been of the opinion that devstack and our internal gate is bloated with plugins and options and should actually be scaled down. We should certainly provide mechanisms for any plugin to be configured via devstack for example but I don't think the code belongs "in" devstack; it should be externally maintained in my opinion... but that's a whole separate rant I suppose.
