Greetings, Manila team!
As you may be aware, I've been working with other folks in the
community on documenting a vision for OpenStack clouds (formerly known
as the 'Technical Vision') - essentially to interpret the mission
statement in long-form, in a way that we can use to actually help
guide decisions. You can read the latest draft here:
We're trying to get feedback from as many people as possible - in many
ways the value is in the process of coming together to figure out what
we're trying to achieve as a community with OpenStack and how we can
work together to build it. The document is there to help us remember
what we decided so we don't have to do it all again over and over.
The vision is structured with two sections that apply broadly to every
project in OpenStack - describing the principles that we believe are
essential to every cloud, and the ones that make OpenStack different
from some other clouds. The third section is a list of design goals
that we want OpenStack as a whole to be able to meet - ideally each
project would be contributing toward one or more of these design
I think that, like Cinder, Manila would qualify as contributing to the
'Basic Physical Data Center Management' goal, since it also allows
users to access external storage providers through a standardised API.
If you would like me or another TC member to join one of your team IRC
meetings to discuss further what the vision means for your team,
please reply to this thread to set it up. You are also welcome to
bring up any questions in the TC IRC channel, #openstack-tc - there's
more of us around during Office Hours
(https://governance.openstack.org/tc/#office-hours), but you can talk
to us at any time.
Feedback can also happen either in this thread or on the review
If the team is generally happy with the vision as it is and doesn't
have any specific feedback, that's cool but I'd like to request that
at least the PTL leave a vote on the review. It's important to know
whether we are actually developing a consensus in the community or
just talking to ourselves :)
Zane and I chatted on IRC and he is going to attend the manila
community meeting tomorrow, November 1, at 1500 UTC in
#openstack-meeting-alt to follow up and solicit feedback. If you are
unable to attend the meeting and have points to make or questions
please follow up in this thread or in the review mentioned above.
