Here is the latest notification subteam update.


[Low] https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1757407 Notification sending
sometimes hits the keystone API to get glance endpoints

[Medium] https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1763051 Need to audit

We need to go throught the live migration codepath and make sure that
the different live migartion notifications sent at a proper time.

usage db query in notifications when the virt driver does not support
collecting such data

[Medium] https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1739325 Server operations

nova.exception._cleanse_dict should use
Old abandoned patches exist but need somebody to pick them up:
* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/215308/
* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/388345/

Versioned notification transformation
* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/403660 Transform instance.exists 
notification - lost the +2 due to a merge conflict

Introduce instance.lock and instance.unlock notifications
Implementation proposed but needs some work:
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/526251/ - No progress. I've pinged the 
author but no response.

Add the user id and project id of the user initiated the instance
action to the notification
Implementation patch exists but still needs work
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/536243/ - No progress. I've pinged the 
author but no response.
Sending full traceback in versioned notifications
The bp was reassigned to Kevin_Zheng and he proposed a WIP patch 

Add versioned notifications for removing a member from a server group
The specless bp 
Based on the PoC patch https://review.openstack.org/#/c/559076/ we see 
basic problems with the overal bp. See Matt's mail from the ML 

Add notification support for trusted_certs
This is part of the bp nova-validate-certificates implementation series 
to extend some of the instance notifications. The implementation looks 
good to me in: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/563269

Introduce Pending VM state
The spec https://review.openstack.org/#/c/554212 proposes some 
notification change to signal when a VM goes to PENDING state. Hovewer 
this information is already available from the versioned 
instance.update notification. The discussion in the spec is ongoing.

Weekly meeting
I have to cancel this week's meeting and next week most of us will be 
in Vancouver. So the next meeting will be held on 29th of May on
