    - root device hints: TODO

Generic boot-from-volume (TheJulia, dtantsur)
- specs and blueprints:
    - http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/ironic-specs/specs/approved/volume-connection-information.html
        - code: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bug/1526231

- status as of most recent weekly meeting:
    - hshiina is looking in Nova side changes and is attempting to obtain clarity on some of the issues that tenant network separation introduced into the deployment workflow.
    - Patch/note tracking etherpad: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/Ironic-BFV
        Ironic Patches:
            https://review.openstack.org/#/c/413324 - iPXE template. MERGED
            https://review.openstack.org/#/c/454243/ - Skip deployment if BFV. MERGED
        https://review.openstack.org/#/c/479142 - Re-align conductor methods for Rest API for volume interfaces prior to api landing - Needs reviews
            https://review.openstack.org/#/c/214586/ - Volume Connection Information Rest API Change  - Needs reviews

Rolling upgrades and grenade-partial (rloo, jlvillal)
- spec approved; code patches: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bug/1526283
- status as of most recent weekly meeting:
    - next patches ready for reviews:
        - 'Modifications for rolling upgrades': https://review.openstack.org/#/c/476779/
        - 'Add new dbsync command with first online data migration': https://review.openstack.org/#/c/408556/
    - to address restarting services after unpinning, spec ready for reviews: 'SIGHUP restarts services with updated configs': https://review.openstack.org/474309
    - Testing work: done as per spec, but rloo wants to ask vasyl whether we can improve. grenade test will do upgrade so we have old API sending requests to old and/or new conductor, but rloo doesn't think there is anything to control -which- conductor handles the request, so what if old conductor handles all the requests?

Python 3.5 compatibility (Nisha, Ankit)
- Topic: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:goal-python35+NOT+project:openstack/governance+NOT+project:openstack/releases
    - this include all projects, not only ironic
    - please tag all reviews with topic "goal-python35"
other patches for experimental gates are not merging as core reviewers are asking to add the python3 builder in running gates instead of duplicating them in project--config project.. https://review.openstack.org/462487,
https://review.openstack.org/462695, https://review.openstack.org/462701 and https://review.openstack.org/462706
- Two ironic patches in review: https://review.openstack.org/473888 and  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/473913/.

Deploying with Apache and WSGI in CI (vsaienk0)
- ironic part seems finished (needs double-checking)
    - do we have install-guide bits on how to do it?
- inspector is TODO and depends on https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bg/1525218

Driver composition (dtantsur)
- spec: http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/ironic-specs/specs/approved/driver-composition-reform.html
- gerrit topic: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/status:open+topic:bug/1524745
- status as of 30 Jun 2017:
    - no progress this week
    - install guide / admin guide docs
        - done except for:
            - upgrading to hardware types: TODO
            - dev docs: TODO
            - fixing nits from previous reviews
    - new hardware types:
        - we need volunteers for SNMP
        - rpioso volunteered to do drac
    - API for hardware interface properties:
        - proposed spec: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/471174/
        - rloo checked with dtantsur, is is not needed for completion of driver composition
    - spec on the classic drivers deprecation: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/464046/
        - updated based on comments

Feature parity between two CLIs (rloo, dtantsur)
- status as of  3 July 2017:
    - Now that we have feature parity:
        - patch with a release note stating the feature parity (in the "prelude" section): reno: feature parity between ironic & OSC  https://review.openstack.org/478230
    - RFE to track deprecation of Ironic CLI: https://bugs.launchpad.net/python-ironicclient/+bug/1700815
        - From PTG discussion (https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/ironic-pike-ptg-operations):
            - No more 'ironic' commands in docs.
            - No deprecation in Pike though, defer to Queens
            - We will still need to have feature parity (new CLI features in both ironic & OSC CLI) until we deprecate ironic CLI
