I would like to nominate myself for the TripleO PTL role for the Queens cycle.
I have been a contributor to various OpenStack projects since Liberty. I have
spent most of my time working on the deployment of OpenStack and with the
engineers who deploy it. As many of you know, I believe the projects we work
on should simplify workflows and improve the end user's lives. During my time
as Puppet OpenStack PTL, I have promoted efforts to simplify and establishing
reusable patterns and best practices. I feel confident that TripleO is on the
right path and hope to continue to lead it in the right direction.
For the last few cycles we have moved TripleO forwards and improved not only
TripleO itself, but have provided additional tooling around deploying and
managing OpenStack. As we look forward to the Queens cycle, it is imporant
to recognize the work we have done and can continue to improve on.
* Improving deployment of containerized services.
We started the effort to switch over to containerized services being deployed
with TripleO as part of the Pike cycle and we need to finalize the last few
services. As we start the transition to including Kubernetes, we need to be
mindful of the transition and make sure we evaluate and leverage already
* Continue making the deployers' lives easier.
The recent cycles have been full of efforts to allow users to do more with
TripleO. With the work to expose composable roles, composable networks and
containerization we have added additional flexibility for the deployment
engineers to be able to build out architectures needed for the end user.
That being said, there are still efforts to be done to make the deployment
process less error prone and more user friendly.
* Continued improvement of CI
The process to transition over to tripleo-quickstart has made excellent
progress over the last few cycles. We need to continue to refine the steps
to ensure that Developers can reuse the work and be able to quickly and
easily troubleshoot when things break down. Additionally we need to make
sure that we can classify repeated failures and work to address them quickly
as to not hold up bugs and features.
* Improve visibility of the project status
As part of the Queens cycle, I would like to devote some time into capturing
metrics and information about the status of the various projects under the
TripleO umbrella. We've been doing lots of work but it I think it would be
beneficial for us to know where this work has been occurring. I'm hoping to
work on some of the reporting around the status of our CI, bugs and reviews
to be able to see where we could use some more efforts to hopefully improve
our development velocities.
