I finally got over my fear of weather and booked my flight and hotel for
I am relatively new to OpenStack community with a strong desire to learn
You may have seen that "Arista Testing" has come alive and is voting on the
newly submitted neutron patches. I have been busy putting together the
framework, and learning the Jenkins/Gerrit interface. Now, I have shifted
my focus on Neutron/networking tempest tests. I notice some of these tests
are failing on my setup. I have started to dig into these with the intent
to understand them.
In terms of this upcoming sprint, if you folks can give some pointers that
will help me get better prepared and productive, that will be appreciated.
Looking forward to meeting and working with you.
