HP public cloud is going away as of 31 Jan 2016:

Jim Meyer from HP would like to do what he can to close the gap with
infra as a result of this decision.

In irc, it was decided to see if we could find a time to discuss this
(Jim Meyer and infra developers who understand infra testing use of HP

The current list i have of folks who should gather is Jim Meyer, Monty
Taylor, Jim Blair, Jeremy Stanley, Clark Boylan, Elizabeth Joseph and
myself, Anita Kuno.

Given that this is very short notice to organize a time to talk and that
Jeremy and Clark arrive in Tokyo on Sunday night, as well as that it
appears all of the above will be at the tc/board meeting on the Monday
(I'm not positive about Elizabeth, can you share your plans Lyz?), the
current plan is to try to find 15 or 20 minutes during lunch break to
discuss this and create an agreement about next steps and a follow up plan.

I am informed the only room open during the Monday is the board room so
we might have to make due with a hallway, lobby space, restaurant, or
perhaps a corner of the room the board is meeting in. We might play this
one by ear as I am expecting we will all be able to see each other
during the Monday.

If you are reading this email and would like to donate public cloud
resources, here is our documentation, please follow up with a thread to
the infra list that is not a child of this post. Please start your own
thread. http://docs.openstack.org/infra/system-config/contribute-cloud.html

If this development spurs you to want to discuss infra's relationship
with companies who host public clouds, the Friday meetup at summit would
be a good place to have that conversation. Doing so on this thread would
again be considered off topic.

The infra team is very grateful and appreciative of the companies that
take the time, trouble and take on the considerable work load to make a
commitment to OpenStack's development and support it. We are grateful
for our past relationship and we also acknowledge the speed with which
Jim Meyer made contact with the infra team on irc to offer his support
to find a way through this situation.

Conversations that imply that the infra team is not grateful to our host
cloud companies is not a reflection of the perspective of infra.

Thank you to those who support OpenStack development and allow this
conversation to proceed.
