= Renaming the CI jobs =

When we started the job transition to Quickstart, we introduced the 
concept of featuresets[1] that define a certain combination of features 
for each job.

This seemed to be a sensible solution, as it's not practical to mention 
all the individual features in the job name, and short names can be 
misleading (for example ovb-ha job does so much more than tests HA).

We decided to keep the original names for these jobs to simplify the 
transition, but the plan is to rename them to something that will help 
to reproduce the jobs locally with Quickstart.

The proposed naming scheme will be the same as the one we're now using 
for job type in project-config:


So for example the current "gate-tripleo-ci-centos-7-ovb-ha-oooq" job 
would look like "gate-tripleo-ci-centos-7-ovb-3ctlr_1comp-featureset001"

The advantage of this will be that it will be easy to reproduce a gate 
job on a local virthost by typing something like:

./quickstart.sh --release tripleo-ci/master \
     --nodes config/nodes/3ctlr_1comp.yml \
     --config config/general_config/featureset001.yml \

Please let us know if this method sounds like a step forward.

= PTG nomination discussion =

We discussed who to nominate to attend the PTG. We decised to nominate 
John, Arx and Sagi to go to the PTG. Ronelle and I are going to apply 
for it without the nomination as well, maybe we'll have budget to meet 
there and discuss CI related topics.

= Smaller items =

* We're close to finish the transition of the "ovb-updates" promotion 
job, it might be the first one to get renamed by the method discussed above.

* The 
jobs are now passing and voting (1 is still not in the gates, waiting 
for merge of [2])

* There were some issues found and fixed (by Sagi) on the stable branch 
promotion jobs.

* Gabriele keeps working on getting the promotion/periodic jobs hosted 
at the new RDO Cloud infrastructure, allowing us to run promotion more 

* John keeps working on the libvirt multi-nic support, his patches are 

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