[openstack-dev] [Glance] Core nominations.

If I recall correctly this matter was discussed last time at the start of the L-cycle and at that time we agreed to see if there is change of pattern to later of the cycle. There has not been one and I do not see reason to postpone this again, just for the courtesy of it in the hopes some of our older cores happens to make review or two.

I think Flavio's proposal combined with the new members would be the right way to reinforce to momentum we've gained in Glance over past few months. I think it's also the right message to send out for the new cores (including you and myself ;) ) that activity is the key to maintain such status.

Hi all,

After having thoroughly thought about the proposed rotation and evaluating the pros and cons of the same at this point of time, I would like to make an alternate proposal.

New Proposal:

  1.  We should go ahead with adding more core members now.
  2.  Come up with a plan and give additional notice for the rotation. Get it implemented one month into Liberty.


Traditionally, Glance program did not implement rotation. This was probably with good reason as the program was small and the developers were working closely together and were aware of each others' daily activities. If we go ahead with this rotation it would be implemented for the first time and would appear to have happened out-of-the-blue.

It would be good for us to make a modest attempt at maintaining the friendly nature of the Glance development team, give them additional notice and preferably send them a common email informing the same. We should propose at least a tentative plan for rotation so that all the other core members are aware of their responsibilities. This brings to my questions, is the poposed list for rotation comprehensive? What is the basis for missing out some of them? What would be a fair policy or some level of determinism in expectations? I believe that we should have input from the general Glance community (and the OpenStack community too) for the same.

In order for all this to be sorted out, I kindly request all the members to wait until after the k3 freeze, preferably until a time at which people would have a bit more time in their hand to look at their mailboxes for unexpected proposals of rotation. Once a decent proposal is set, we can announce the change-in-dynamics of the Glance program and get everyone interested familiar with it during the summit. Whereas, we should not block the currently active to-be-core members from doing great work. Hence, we should go ahead with adding them to the list.

I hope that made sense. If you've specific concerns, I'm free to chat on IRC as well.

(otherwise) Thoughts?

+1 on both proposals: rotation is definitely a step in right direction.

Yep, rotating out inactive members is an important step to ensure that
the community has clear view of who the current active leadership is.
