[Openstack-operators] [magnum][rdo] Trying to use Magnum with Kilo

The RDO folk have been working hard to support community contributions to packaging. There are regular RDO packaging meetings to review any issues and community contributions are very welcome. We’re contributing to a number of different ones currently and it is working well.

Certainly, having multiple RDO repo consumers building their own packages is non-optimal. We’d also greatly appreciate packages for projects such as Magnum.

How about asking on https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/rdo-list where the packagers hang out ?

Distributions are respectively responsible for what they package or don't package (though if they package the service they SHOULD IMHO package a functioning client.) There is an overall project (or two) to get to a single common client.

Thanks.  I’ll check it out.

Can anyone out there tell me how projects like python-magnumclient and the openstack-magnum software itself get picked up by the RDO folks?  I’d like to see those be picked up in their distro but I’m not sure where that work takes place.  Do project developers typically package up their projects and make them available to the RDO maintainers or do RedHat folks pick up sources from the projects, do the packaging, and make those packages available?

We can start building our own packages for this of course, but as operators prefer not to because of all the dependency overhead.   Unless it’s something we can do to help get the packages into the RDO repos (i.e. become a package maintainer as a way of contributing)

I’m trying to use Magnum on our Openstack Kilo cloud which runs CentOS 7 and RDO.   Since the Magnum RPMs are present in RDO, I’m using RPMs built by one of the Magnum developers (available at https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/results/sdake/openstack-magnum/)

Once I got rid of a conflicting UID that it tries to use for the magnum user, I’m able to start up the services.   However, following along with the Magnum documentation that exists (http://docs.openstack.org/developer/magnum/), the next step is to use the “magnum” command to define things like bay models and bays.

However, the “magnum” command doesn’t seem to exist.  I’m not sure if it’s supposed to exist as a symlink to something else?

Is anyone else out there using Magnum with RDO Kilo?  I’d love to chat with someone else that has worked through these issues.
