>  I am running for PTL for the Kolla project.  I have been executing in an

> Salkeld, who has no outcome in the election, to officiate the election [1].
>  For the Kilo cycle our community went from zero LOC to a fully working
> implementation of most of the services based upon Kubernetes as the
> backend.  Recently I led the effort to remove Kubernetes as a backend and
> provide container contents, building, and management on bare metal using
> docker-compose which is nearly finished.  At the conclusion of Kilo, it
> should be possible from one shell script to start an AIO full deployment of
> all of the current OpenStack git-namespaced services using containers built
> from RPM packaging.
>  For Liberty, I’d like to take our community and code to the next level.
> Since our containers are fairly solid, I’d like to integrate with existing
> projects such as TripleO, os-ansible-deployment, or Fuel.  Alternatively
> the community has shown some interest in creating a multi-node HA-ified
> installation toolchain.
>  I am deeply committed to leading the community where the core developers
> want the project to go, wherever that may be.
>  I am strongly in favor of adding HA features to our container
> architecture.
>  I would like to add .deb package support and from-source support to our
> docker container build system.
>  I would like to implement a reference architecture where our containers
> can be used as a building block for deploying a reference platform of 3
> controller nodes, ~100 compute nodes, and ~10 storage nodes.
>  I am open to expanding our scope to address full deployment, but would
> prefer to merge our work with one or more existing upstreams such as
> TripelO, os-ansible-deployment, and Fuel.
>  Finally I want to finish the job on functional testing, so all of our
> containers are functionally checked and gated per commit on Fedora, CentOS,
> and Ubuntu.
>  I am experienced as a PTL, leading the Heat Orchestration program from
> zero LOC through OpenStack integration for 3 development cycles.  I write
> code as a PTL and was instrumental in getting the Magnum Container Service
> code-base kicked off from zero LOC where Adrian Otto serves as PTL.  My
> past experiences include leading Corosync from zero LOC to a stable
> building block of High Availability in Linux.  Prior to that I was part of
> a team that implemented Carrier Grade Linux.  I have a deep and broad
> understanding of open source, software development, high performance team
> leadership, and distributed computing.
>  I would be pleased to serve as PTL for Kolla for the Liberty cycle and
> welcome your vote.
