Hello, team,

During last weekly meeting, we discussed how to address TCs concerns in Tricircle big-tent application. After the weekly meeting, the proposal was co-prepared by our contributors: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1kpVo5rsL6p_rq9TvkuczjommJSsisDiKJiurbhaQg7E

The more doable way is to divide Tricircle into two independent and decoupled projects, only one of the projects which deal with networking automation will try to become an big-tent project, And Nova/Cinder API-GW will be removed from the scope of big-tent project application, and put them into another project:

TricircleNetworking: Dedicated for cross Neutron networking automation in multi-region OpenStack deployment, run without or with TricircleGateway. Try to become big-tent project in the current application of https://review.openstack.org/#/c/338796/.

TricircleGateway: Dedicated to provide API gateway for those who need single Nova/Cinder API endpoint in multi-region OpenStack deployment, run without or with TricircleNetworking. Live as non-big-tent, non-offical-openstack project, just like Tricircle toady’s status. And not pursue big-tent only if the consensus can be achieved in OpenStack community, including Arch WG and TCs, then decide how to get it on board in OpenStack. A new repository is needed to be applied for this project.

And consider to remove some overlapping implementation in Nova/Cinder API-GW for global objects like flavor, volume type, we can configure one region as master region, all global objects like flavor, volume type, server group, etc will be managed in the master Nova/Cinder service. In Nova API-GW/Cinder API-GW, all requests for these global objects will be forwarded to the master Nova/Cinder, then to get rid of any API overlapping-implementation.

More information, you can refer to the proposal draft https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1kpVo5rsL6p_rq9TvkuczjommJSsisDiKJiurbhaQg7E,
your thoughts are welcome, and let's have more discussion in this weekly meeting.

Best Regards
Chaoyi Huang(joehuang)
