Bringing an old topic on the table.
We might have noticed:
1. Some tripleo-specs take huge amount of time before getting merged
(or even reviewed). We have been asking folks to review them every
week but unfortunately they don't get much attraction (# of core
reviewers versus # of folks actually reviewing specs).
2. Some folks spend a lot of time writing TripleO specs and wait for
feedback before starting some implementation (like proof of concept).
Because TripleO like innovation and also moving fast, I think it's
time to bring the tripleo-specs topic on the table:
1. If you have an idea, don't feel obliged to write a specs. Create a
blueprint on launchpad, announce it on the ML and start writing code
(can be real implementation or just a simple PoC). Feedback will be
given in the classic code review.
2. If you still want to write a spec, please make it readable and
communicate about it. If your spec is 900 lines long and not announced
anywhere, there is an high change that it will never been reviewed.
3. If you still want to write a spec, please don't stop your work
after the specs. Please engage some PoC and prototypes to get feedback
directly on the implementation.
I think these proposals are realistic with the regard of how TripleO
project works now.
Please bring any feedback or question.
