Hi everyone,

This is my self-nomination to continue running as Nova PTL for the 
Queens cycle.

If elected, this would be my fourth term as Nova PTL. While I try to 
continually improve, at this point I have a fairly steady way of doing 
things and most people are probably used to that by now. That's not to 
say it's the best way of doing things, so I'm always open to getting 
feedback on what people would like to see more (or less) of from me.

I really see this as a service role and I'm happy to continue being of 
service for another release, which includes preparing for the PTG and 
Forum, being aware of the schedule and communicating major changes or 
plans to various groups (developers, operators, Foundation staff, etc).

I'm also happy to say that I'm fortunate enough to have an employer that
supports me doing this again and the amount of time it takes working 
mostly full time in the community.

As for Queens content, we made a lot of progress again in Pike but some 
things are left undone and that's what I'd like to focus on in Queens. 

- Continue to evolve and solidify Nova's interaction with the Placement
   service, which includes getting the allocations code out of the
   compute service, fully supporting shared storage providers (and
   testing that in the Ceph CI job), and finally adding the nested
   resource providers support which will enable other features like vGPUs
   and other hardware-accelerated configurations.
- Close some gaps in our multi-cell support, mainly related to up-calls
   for reschedules during build and affinity/anti-affinity sanity checks,
   and also work on real multi-cell deployment testing in a multi-node CI
- Finish the Cinder 3.27 API integration early (before the PTG) so we
   can finally get volume multi-attach support.
- Cleanup the documentation now that it has moved in-tree.

Finally, a personal goal for me is going to be working on helping mentor 
someone into the PTL role for the Rocky release, so if you are 
interested in this role, please reach out.

Thanks for your consideration.
