Essential Priorities

Nova resource class based scheduling changes (dtantsur)
- I have to add this, as there are things to finish by end of Pike to avoid problems in Queens
- TODO as of 14 Aug 2017:
    - devstack:
        - always set resource class: https://review.openstack.org/491777 MERGED
        - support scheduling based on rsc: https://review.openstack.org/476968
    - nova:

    - integration tests: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/443628/

Generic boot-from-volume (TheJulia, dtantsur)
- BFV Meetings on hold until September.
- specs and blueprints:
    - http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/ironic-specs/specs/approved/volume-connection-information.html
        - code: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bug/1526231
    - http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/ironic-specs/specs/approved/boot-from-volume-reference-drivers.html
        - code: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bug/1559691
    - https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/ironic-boot-from-volume
        - code: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bp/ironic-boot-from-volume
- status as of 14 Aug 2017:
    - Patch/note tracking etherpad: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/Ironic-BFV
        Ironic Patches:
            https://review.openstack.org/#/c/479326/ - BFV deploy follow-up - MERGED
            https://review.openstack.org/#/c/466568/ - devstack testing guide - MERGED
            https://review.openstack.org/#/c/473717/ - functional tests 1x +2

    - Not required for Pike:
        - Nova:
            https://review.openstack.org/#/c/468353 - Ironic: Get IP address for volume connector

Rolling upgrades and grenade-partial (rloo, jlvillal)
- spec approved; code patches: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bug/1526283
- status as of most recent weekly meeting:
    - last big code patch MERGED: 'Add new dbsync command with first online data migration': https://review.openstack.org/#/c/408556/
    - Testing work: done as per spec, but rloo wants to ask vasyl whether we can improve. grenade test will do upgrade so we have old API sending requests to old and/or new conductor, but rloo doesn't think there is anything to control -which- conductor handles the request, so what if old conductor handles all the requests?
        - should add 'ironic-dbsync online_data_migrations' call to regular grenade test (not multinode test because grenade multinode test doesn't upgrade all services)
    - to address restarting services after unpinning, spec ready for reviews: 'SIGHUP restarts services with updated configs': https://review.openstack.org/474309
    - next patch ready for reviews: Rolling upgrade procedure documentation: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/416565/
        - MERGED, follow up needed
