I would like to propose my candidacy for Kuryr PTL position. Kuryr has only recently joined OpenStack big-tent and i would like to receive the official trust of the community and continue serving as the PTL for a full release cycle.
I think that Kuryr serve an important role in current OpenStack eco-system and solve new problems that many users are facing starting to deploy containers environments mixed with OpenStack. Kuryr is a relatively new project but i am proud to say that we already have a very diverse community and feel that we operate openly and advancing in the right direction. I would like us to keep doing that and advance even faster in the next cycle, I have and will continue to devote time to bring more new contributors and users into Kuryr. Kuryr is at first a team effort, me and Toni (apuimedo) from Midokura are doing this together all the way from the start and hopefully continue so in the future. I would also like to thank all the great people and contributors helping and working together with us on Kuryr, you guys are doing great job! My goals for Kuryr to the next release are: * Stability, Test coverage and benchmarking - This is important for every project but especially for Kuryr that is facing and working with models and frameworks that are experimental and changing quite often. As more users considering deploying Kuryr, our quality assurance become more and more critical but also our advantage over existing solutions. * Kubernetes Integration - This effort has already started and we already have what seems to be a good design and a POC implementation of this, i would like us to keep that great work from Antoni Segura Puimedon, Irena Berezovsky, Taku Fukushima and Jaume Devesa. We also need to start looking at providing extra enhancement and policy to the deployments, working together with the Kubernetes and Neutron communities to accomplish this. * Magnum and Nested containers - We have a great spec and proposal for this done by Fawad Khaliq and i hope to soon be able to bring more interested resources to work on this with him and hopefully myself as well. To me, the goal is for Kuryr to be the default Magnum networking driver and this is one big step in this direction which we do openly with the Magnum team. * Operators / users - I would like for us to be more involved and responsive for users needs and requirements, Mike Spreitzer from IBM is helping us drive this effort. I am working on providing more reference architecture of such mixed environments which will help us prioritize and find the best use cases to focus on. I am also working internally in Huawei trying to bring these operational requirements. I think packaging and Kolla integration are major part of this effort and makes the process of deploying Kuryr simple and easy, we need to continue all the good work that was done on this front and add support for more and more existing Neutron plugins * Containers storage - My plan is to expand Kuryr mission statement to also bridge between containers orchestration engines and models and the various storage and backup projects in OpenStack to provide simplified management and extra added value features for containers deployment. I hope that we will start these discussions, designs and work during the next release and do it hand in hand with all of these projects. * Added value features - Like being able to attach to existing networks/ports, a very use full feature for production use cases that i hear is needed quite a lot and is being implemented by Mohammad Banikazemi. We need to identify any other feature that simplify and improve containers networking and work to provide it. * Increase visibility - Put focus on providing more documentation, blog posts and arrange meetups and talks for all of us to spread the word about Kuryr. I feel that operational documentation is very important for our first users. * New contributors - I personally hope that more companies (like RedHat and Mirantis) will join our effort and share their vision with us in order to provide a better solution to the community. I am also working on more active involvement from Huawei and hopefully from other companies just as well. Thanks and feel free to email me with any question, Gal.
