OpenStack DefCore Accelerates & Simplifies with Clear and Timely
Guidelines [Feedback?]

Last week, the OpenStack DefCore committee rolled up our collective
sleeves and got to work in a serious way. We had a in-person meeting
with great turn out with 5 board members, Foundation executives/staff
and good community engagement. TL;DR > We think DefCore deliverables
should be dated milestone guidelines instead tightly coupled to release
events (see graphic on Rob Hirschfeld's blog).

Scaling OpenStack Neutron Development

During Kilo cycle, Neutron's team has made an effort to expand and scale
the Neutron development community. Plugin Decomposition and Advanced
Services Split were designed to enable a more scalable development
environment which will allow for fast code iteration in all the areas
affected. How have we done with these?

OpenStack + Kubernetes = More choice and flexibility for developers

Sometimes a demo can go almost too well. By the time Craig Peters and
Georgy Okrokvertskhov took the mic to show how OpenStack support for
Kubernetes makes managing Docker containers pretty much a
point-and-click operation, the crowd at the Kubernetes San Francisco
meetup was almost hoping for a glitch. Instead, in just under 10
minutes, the pair did a seamless walk-through of how to set up a
Kubernetes cluster using OpenStack in the final demo of the night.
