Cleaning Up Deprecation Warnings in the Gate
* We have a lot of logs to process in our elastic search cluster, which results
  in frequently having issues with the amount of RAM available in the cluster.
* In general it would be good for projects to look at how verbose their logging
  is, and if that’s really necessary.
* Using this query [3] to show deprecation warnings on jobs running on master
  the past 7 days shows 17576707 hits.
* We need volunteers to to make changes in things like Devstack to have it
  avoid using deprecated options.
  - If you would like to help, please use the topic
    ‘stop-using-deprecated-options’ [4].

Stable Team PTL Elected

Announcing the OpenStack Health Dashboard
* A dashboard to visualize the state of tests running in gate [6].
* Started last September, it’s still in early phases.
* Biggest limitations:
  - The datastore: using subunit2sql as the backend for all data and only
    collecting results for tempest and grenade runs in the gate and periodic
  - No results for runs that fail before tempest starts running.
* Code [7]
* Launchpad [8]
* Work items that need to be done [9].
