Subject: [dovetail] proposal: information sharing with OpenStack RefStack and
We are trying very hard to establish processes, guidelines and best practices
for running the OPNFV certification program - on our own and with guidance from
C&C. I believe we can much better leverage existing knowledge and experience
from related communities. In this context, I'd like to make a proposal.
As mentioned during last week's call, Jose and I had very insightful
conversations with the relevant folks from the OpenStack certification domain:
Catherine Diep (RefStack PTL), Egle Sigler (co-chair Interop working group) and
Mark Voelker (co-chair Interop working group). We have developed a good
relationship with them and they are willing and interested in sharing their
experience in running the OpenStack certification / interop program with us.
My proposal: I'd like to invite the aforementioned persons to one or two of our
project meetings and let them share their experience, best practices and
guidelines with us. Based on these insights, we can then define, adapt and
optimize our own processes to suite our needs. The latter is important - I
don't think we can simply adopt their existing processes, but we should learn
about why existing processes in the OpenStack domain have evolved to their
current form. The OpenStack certification program was started in 2013 and
officially launched in 2015 - so there was serious effort and time involved. We
should try to build upon existing knowledge without having to go through the
same learning phase as the OpenStack folks.
This requires some thoughtful timing, of course: In the very short term future,
we need to focus on finalizing the first iteration of the OPNFV certification
program. My proposal is not intending to undermine this. On the contrary.
However, the earlier we get additional insight, the better we can define our
I don't want to put this on the agenda for tomorrow's meeting (for obvious
reasons), but instead discuss this by email.
@Wenjing / Hongbo: can we dedicate a future meeting to such a sharing session
with the OpenStack folks?
