Was this meeting recorded in some manner? I see you are using bluejeans, but
don't see any recordings of the discussion.

Additionally, I am a little sad IRC is not being used for these meetings. Some
of the things tripleo is doing is of interest of me, but I find it difficult to
join a video session for 1hour just to listen.  With IRC, it is easier for me to
multi task into other things, then come back and review what has been discussed.

Yes, logging was something of an issue this week.  We are still purging data on
logs.o.o, but it does look like quickstart is too aggressive with log
collection. We currently only have 12TB of HDD space for logs.o.o and our
retention policy has dropped from 6 months to 6 weeks.

I believe we are going have a discussion at the PTG about this for
openstack-infra and implement some changes (caps) for jobs in the coming future.
If you are planning on attending the PTG, I encourage you to attend the
