Hi everyone,

Blazar team had some meetings, a forum and a presentation at Boston  
summit last week.  This mail is a quick summary of the activities. If  
more details are needed, please check links listed at the bottom of this  

* Blazar team meetings

Blazar team had 2 meetings [1], one was for Blazar internal features and  
another was for collaborations with PlacementAPI team.  Both meetings  
were well successful by all of the team members.

At internal features meeting, we reached work items for all topics  
covered in the meetings.  All items will start soon, but if you have an  
interest and want to pick up an item to join the team activities, feel  
free to pick and start one of the items.

At collaborations meeting, we showed feature visions of each team as  
well as how both teams can collaborate with the API.  As a result of the  
discussion, we agreed to why and how blazar use PlacementAPI.

* Forum session

The advanced instance scheduling[2] was one of forum sessions related to  
Blazar project.  At the session, there were two topics, pre-emptable  
instances and reservations.  Based on the discussion, requests were  
shown for "reservation" and the team tries to solve the problem.

* Project update track

Blazar team had project update track[3] in general session. We  
appreciate a chance to have the track for PWG and the foundation. In the  
session, we talked overview of Blazar project, key enhancements in Ocata  
and key enhancements for Pike.
