We have the opportunity to again  ask a question in the upcoming user
survey which will be conducted in February. We can ask one question and
have it directed to either *users* of Nova, people *testing* nova, or
people *interested* in using/adopting nova. Given the existing adoption
of Nova in OpenStack deployments (98% as of October 2016) I think that
sliding scale really only makes sense to direct a question at existing
users of the project. It's also suggested that for projects with over
50% adoption to make the question quantitative rather than qualitative.
We have until January 9th to submit a question. If you have any
quantitative questions about Nova to users, please reply to this thread
Personally I tend to be interested in feedback on recent development, so
I'd like to ask questions about cells v2 or the placement API, i.e. they
were optional in Newton but how many deployments that have upgraded to
Newton are deploying those features (maybe also noting they will be
required to upgrade to Ocata)? However, the other side of me knows that
most major production deployments are also lagging behind by a few
releases, and may only now be upgrading, or planning to upgrade, to
Mitaka since we've recently end-of-life'd the Liberty release. So asking
questions about cells v2 or the placement service is probably premature.
It might be better to ask about microversion adoption, i.e. if you're
monitoring API request traffic to your cloud, what % of compute API
requests are using a microversion > 2.1.
Previous release priorities might spur some other ideas .
