Essential Priorities

CI refactoring and missing test coverage
- Standalone CI tests (vsaienk0)
    - next patch to be reviewed: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/429770/
- Missing test coverage (all)
    - portgroups and attach/detach tempest tests: https://review.openstack.org/382476
    - local boot with partition images: TODO https://bugs.launchpad.net/ironic/+bug/1531149
    - adoption: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/344975/
        - should probably be changed to use standalone tests

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
    - http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/ironic-specs/specs/approved/boot-from-volume-reference-drivers.html
        - code: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bug/1559691
    - https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/ironic-boot-from-volume
        - code: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bp/ironic-boot-from-volume
- status as of most recent weekly meeting:
    - mjturek is working on getting together devstack config updates/script changes in order to support this configuration No updates
        - hshiina uploaded some devstack patches [See etherpad]
    - 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/406290 Wiring in attach/detach operations
            TheJulia will sync-up with the other contributors to this effort and see about getting the feedback addressed in the patchset.
            https://review.openstack.org/#/c/413324 iPXE template
            https://review.openstack.org/#/c/454243/ - WIP logic changes for deployment process.  Tenant network separation introduced some additional complexity, quick conceptual feedback requested.
            https://review.openstack.org/#/c/214586/ - Volume Connection Information Rest API Change
        Additional patches exist, for python-ironicclient and one for nova.  Links in the patch/note tracking etherpad.

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:
    - Based on feedback from vdrok and jlvillal, rloo redesigned (conceptually simpler) the way IronicObject versioning is handled by services running different releases:
        - update to the spec, ready for reviews: 'Rolling upgrades: different object versions' https://review.openstack.org/#/c/469940/
        - next patch ready for reviews, if update is approved: 'Add version column' https://review.openstack.org/#/c/412397/
    - 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?

Reference architecture guide (jroll, dtantsur)
- no updates, dtantsur plans to start working on some text for the install-guide soon(ish)

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"
- Raised a patch in openstack-infra for disabling swift in experimental gate as swift is still not compatible for py3.5.https://review.openstack.org/467538
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
- Disabled swift in experimental gate as swift is not yet ported to python3.5.
- Devstack fails to come up in py3.5 for ironic. Raised the bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ironic/+bug/1695135

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
