We had only about half the usual attendance on our Thursday meeting as 
people had conflicts and other hindrances. I joined it from an airport 
lobby. We still managed to do some good work.

== Task prioritization ==

Our main focus was on prioritizing the remaining tasks for Quickstart 
upstream transition. There are a few high priority items which we put in 
the Next column on the RDO Infra board. See all the outstanding "Q to U" 
(Quickstart to Upstream) cards here[1].

Some of these are simple and quick low hanging fruits, a few are bigger 
chunks of work that need a good attention, like making sure that our 
multinode workflow can be reproduced over libvirt for easier debugging.

== Quickstart extra roles ==

We pulled in all useful roles into the quickstart-extras repo when we 
created it, and it seems it might be better if a few very specialized 
ones would live outside of it.

One example is Raul's validate-ha role, which we will split off to speed 
up development, as most cores are not involved in this and gates are not 
testing it.

== Update on transitioning to the new Quickstart jobs ==

We will use the job type field from the upstream jobs to figure out 
which quickstart job config we have to use for gate jobs (not the job name).

In addition to this, Gabrielle will tackle the issue of mixing the old 
and new jobs, and run them in parallel, letting us transition them one 
by one. Details in the trello card[2].

== Gating improvement ==

I was part of a meeting last week where we tried to identify problem 
areas for our testing and came to the conclusion that the ungated 
openstack common repo[3] is sometimes the cause for gating breaks.

We should start gating it to improve upstream quickstart job stability.
