I am announcing my candidacy for Horizon PTL.
I've been contributing to Horizon since the Juno cycle and have
been a core reviewer for the last two cycles. We’ve got a great
culture in the Horizon team that I’d like to help continue and
I feel we have made good progress in several areas of Horizon that
improve responsiveness and stability, and believe our focus should
be on continuing that work.
My goals for Ocata are:
- Ensure that modernisation of the interface continues with good
framework components emerging that are accessible to existing and
new developers of Horizon and Horizon plugins. This means
continuing to ensure the code is written to good, consistent
patterns, but also making sure there is good documentation to
- Continue to encourage finding better ways to handle scaling
in OpenStack, both in our own filtering and use of data but also
liaising with other projects to see how they can help us address
scaling bottlenecks. Getting the profiling panel integrated into
Horizon’s developer interface is a high priority for Ocata.
- Improve our rate of addressing bugs; I will look at running more
of the successful bug days that we had previously. One aspect
of this is putting more effort into keeping our dependency
compatibilities up to date, both Python and Django, but also
the xstatic packages we rely on.
- Improve communication both within the Horizon team and outside
so folks can more easily get up to speed or keep up to date with
what’s happening in Horizon.
