tl;dr; Artifacts IS staying in Glance.
1. We had a nice discussion at the contributors' meet-up at the
Vancouver summit this morning. After weighing in many possibilities
and evolution of the Glance program, we have decided to go ahead
with the Artifacts implementation within Glance program under the
EXPERIMENTAL v3 API.
2. The effort would primarily be conducted as a sub-team-like structure
within the program and the co-coordinators and drivers of the
necessary Artifacts features would be given core-reviewer status
temporarily with an informal agreement to merge code that is only
related to Artifacts.
3. The entire Glance team would give reviews as time and priorities
permit. The approval (+A/+WorkFlow) of any code within the program
would need to come from core-reviewers who are not temporarily
authorized. The list of such individuals and updated time-line would
be documented in phases during the course of Liberty cycle.
4. We will continue to evaluate & update the governance, maturity of
the code and future plans for the v1, v2 and v3 Glance APIs as time
progresses. However, for now we are aiming to integrate all of
Glance (specifically Images) as Artifacts in the v3 API.
Special thanks to Flavio for providing DefCore and TC perspective as
well as initializing this discussion. Also, thanks to Stuart McLaren and
Brian Rosmaita for giving us thoughtful veteran feedback. The entire
team did a great job at putting all their questions and concerns
amicably on the table and came to a good understanding of the plan and
level of commitment.
All the best to the Project SearchLight team who have decided to start
ElasticSearch based development for search functionality in OpenStack as
a separate program and would be porting respective code out of Glance.
Glance team would help co-ordinate this porting effort in order to avoid
destabilizing Images and MetaDefs code-bases.
This also means we will re-evaluate some of the existing spec proposals
and most likely not ask people for radical changes in their approach.
This first phase of the Liberty cycle would focus on seeing the
Experimental Artifacts API through. We will also focus on stability
aspects of the Images (v1 & v2) related features. The second phase
priorities would be decided at the mid-cycle meet-up (details to come
