Hi openstack-operators,

With the impending release of CentOS 7.3, derived out of RHEL 7.3,
this can surely be of interest whether you're running from source or
from RDO packages.

You can see the full thread on rdo-list here [1].

In the last days we've been running our RDO-CI pipelines using a
pre-release of the incoming Centos 7.3 release. We'd like to share
with the RDO community some issues we've being facing and some
recommendations to be prepared for this new release:

1. package mariadb-libs-5.5.52 included in CentOS 7.3 conflicts wiht
mariadb packages included in RDO repositories. Typically, this package
may be in the OS base installation before starting OpenStack
deployment, what can lead to errors while installing mariadb-server
from RDO. To avoid this, update your system right after enabling RDO
repositories in your servers and before starting OpenStack services

2. The versions of qemu-kvm-ev and openstack-selinux provided by
VirtSIG and CloudSIG at 7.3 release will require other packages in
CentOS 7.3. If you try to install them without updated repos enabled,
you'll get some errors. The recommendation from RDO team is to move to
Centos 7.3 based installations to deploy RDO as soon as possible after
it's officially released. This will ensure you are using a
configuration already tested in RDO CI. If this is not possible for
any reason, make sure you have the official Centos 7 repos enabled and
available in your server. This repo will provide requirements needed.

By following these guidelines we expect a smooth transition to Centos
7.3 for RDO users. Don't hesitate to contact #rdo at freenode or this
mail list for any question you may have.
