Python 3.5 compatibility (Nisha, Ankit)
- Topic: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:goal-python35+NOT+project:openstack/governance+NOT+project:openstack/releases
    - this include all projects, not only ironic
    - please tag all reviews with topic "goal-python35"
- Nisha will be taking over this work(Nisha on leave from May 5 to May 22)
- Status as on May 5.  Raised patches in openstack-infra/project-config for adding experimental gates for the ironic governed modules

    - https://review.openstack.org/462701- ironic-lib
    - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/462706/- python-ironic-inspector-client
    - Not sure, if we want to do the same for ironic-staging-drivers module or not, hence not raised
        - one day - yes, but it's not a priority at all
- Ankit took over this work
    - Status as on May 12.
    - Upstream python3 experimental gate for ironic is failing because of failing of s-proxy process and it is giving error ImportError: No module named keystonemiddleware.auth_token
    But in the local environment with enablement of python 3 it is passing.
- Status as on May 18.
    - Raised a patch in devstack for enabling swift and ironic for python3.5. https://review.openstack.org/#/c/464932/

Deploying with Apache and WSGI in CI (vsaienk0)
- ironic part seems finished (needs double-checking)
    - do we have install-guide bits on how to do it?

Driver composition (dtantsur, jroll)
- spec: http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/ironic-specs/specs/approved/driver-composition-reform.html
- gerrit topic: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/status:open+topic:bug/1524745
- status as of 22 May 2017:
    - client changes merged and released as part of ironicclient 1.13
    - install guide / admin guide docs
        - configuration and enrollment bits merged
        - ipmi docs update: https://review.openstack.org/466734
        - explaining defaults calculation: https://review.openstack.org/466741
        - upgrading to hardware types: TODO
        - dev docs: TODO
    - new hardware types:
        - we need volunteers for SNMP
        - rpioso volunteered to do drac
        - missing ipmitool vendor: https://review.openstack.org/466263 MERGED
    - future of the driver properties API spec:
        - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/439907/
    - dtantsur started a spec on the classic drivers deprecation:
        - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/464046/
            - needs addressing comments

Feature parity between two CLIs (rloo, dtantsur)
- OSC driver-properties spec is work in progress: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/439907/
    - we don't have API to show driver properties for dynamic drivers (we show hardware type + default interfaces): https://bugs.launchpad.net/ironic/+bug/1671549. This should not be a blocker for the missing OSC commands but since this will also need OSC support, it might have an impact on the OSC commands we eventually decide on. Discussed in last week's meetup, starting around L137: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/ironic-virtual-meetup
    - no update this week

OSC default API version change (dtantsur)
- 22 May 2017 update
    - Spec updated; scopes work to CLI only:  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/448661/
        - there are some comments that I need to check/reply to
    - OSC CLI patch is up, passing unit and functional tests  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/442153/
        - needs updating to match the recent spec changes (mostly wording of the deprecation message)

node tags (zhenguo, vdrok)
- spec: http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/ironic-specs/specs/approved/nodes-tagging.html
- topic: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bug/1526266
- code needs rebasing

    - CI jobs run voting on ironic and sushy
    - patch to simplify extending sushy: https://review.openstack.org/464617
    - we need more people reviewing sushy
