If the topics below interest you and you want to contribute to the 
discussion, feel free to join the next meeting:

Time: Thursdays, 14:30-15:30 UTC
Place: https://bluejeans.com/4113567798/

Full minutes: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/tripleo-ci-squad-meeting

We had a packed agenda and intense discussion as always! Let's start 
with an announcement:

The smoothly named "TripleO deploy time optimization hackathlon" will be 
held on 21st and 22nd of June. It would be great to have the cooperation 
of multiple teams here. See the etherpad[1] for details.

= Extending our image building =

It seems that multiple teams would like to utilize the upstream/RDO 
image building process and produce images just like we do upstream. 
Unfortunately our current image storage systems are not having enough 
bandwidth (either upstream or on the RDO level) to increase the amount 
of images served.

Paul Belanger joined us and explained the longer term plans of OpenStack 
infra, which would provide a proper image/binary blob hosting solution 
in the 6 months time frame.

In the short term, we will recreate both the upstream and RDO image 
hosting instances on the new RDO Cloud and will test the throughput.

= Transitioning the promotion jobs =

This task still needs some further work. We're missing feature parity on 
the ovb-updates job. As the CI Squad is not able to take responsibility 
for the update functionality, we will probably migrate the job with 
everything else but the update part and make that the new promotion job.

We will also extend the amount of jobs voting on a promotion, probably 
will the scenario jobs.

= Devmode =

Quickstart's devmode.sh seems to be picking up popularity among the 
TripleO developers. Meanwhile we're starting to realize the limitations 
of the interface it provides for Quickstart. We're going to have a 
design session next week on Tuesday (13th) at 1pm UTC where we will try 
to come up with some ideas to improve this.

Ian Main suggested to default devmode.sh to deploy a containerized 
system so that developers get more familiar with that. We agreed on this 
being a good idea and will follow it up with some changes.

= RDO Cloud =

The RDO cloud transition is continuing, however Paul requested that we 
don't add the new cloud to the tripleo queue upstream but rather use the 
rdoproject's own zuul and nodepool to be a bit more independent and run 
it like a third party CI system. This will require further cooperation 
with RDO Infra folks.

Meanwhile Sagi is setting up the infrastructure needed on the RDO Cloud 
instance to run CI jobs.

Thank you for reading the summary. Have a great weekend!

Best regards,
