[openstack-dev] [Fuel][Plugins] One plugin - one Launchpad project

Hi all –

I think this might’ve gotten buried a bit in the pre-summit and summit

I just wanted to kick the thread – I think this is a really good idea.
Dogpiling all plugins into a single LP project makes it really difficult to
pick out which bugs affect which plugins – and the ecosystem is only
getting bigger.

Irina, please add this to the SDK as a best practice when you have time.
I’ll talk to plugin teams I’m working with to make sure they know about
this, as well.

Hi to everyone,

as you possibly know (at least, those dev. teams working on their Fuel
plugins) we have a fuel-plugins Launchpad project [1] which serves as
all-in-one entry point for filing bugs, related

to plugin-specific problems.

nevertheless, this single project is a bad idea in terms of providing
granularity and visibility for each plugin:

- it's not possible to make up milestones, unique for every plugin that
would coincide with the plugin's version (which is specified in
metadata.yaml file)

- it's not possible to provide every dev. team with exclusive rights on
managing importance, milestones etc.

therefore, I would like to propose the following:

- if you have your own fuel plugin, create a separate LP project for it
e.g.[2] [3]and make up all corresponding groups for managing release cycle
of your plugin

- if you have some issues with fuel plugin framework itself, please
consider filing bugs in fuel project [4] as usual.

I would appreciate getting feedback on this idea.

if it seems fine, then I'll follow-up with adding instructions into our SDK
[5] and the list of already existing LP projects.
