[openstack-dev] [ironic] Boot from Volume meeting?

Hi Julia,

Thanks for asking!

I'm agnostic about whether the BFV meeting should use the same day/time as the ironic-neutron meeting was. As long as people who are/will be attending this meeting are fine with the date/time, I'm fine too :)

I would actually prefer that the date/times are chosen to accommodate the folks that intend on attending those meetings. I'm concerned about keeping/having a 'generic' meeting time that doesn't work that well for the same folks all the time. If we 'set this in stone', new people may not feel like they could ask to change the day/time :-(

I did not take any poll so I may be bringing something up that no one cares about. E.g., I'm totally fine with the proposed date/time but I don't know if I'll be attending this or future meetings :)

Subject: [openstack-dev] [ironic] Boot from Volume meeting?

Greetings fellow ironic humanoids!

As many have known, I've been largely attempting to drive Boot from
Volume functionality in ironic over the past two years.  Largely, in a
slow incremental approach, which is in part due to how I perceived it
to best fit into the existing priorities when the discussions started.

During PTG there was quite the interest by multiple people to become
involved and attempt to further Boot from Volume forward this cycle. I
would like to move to having a weekly meeting with the focus of
integrating this functionality into ironic, much like we did with the
tighter neutron integration.

I have two reasons for proposing a new meeting:

* Detailed technical status updates and planning/co-ordination would
need to take place. This would functionally be noise to a large number
of contributors in the ironic community.

* Many of these details would need need to be worked out prior to the
first part of the existing ironic meeting for the weekly status
update. The update being a summary of the status of each sub team.

With that having been said, I'm curious if we could re-use the
ironic-neutron meeting time slot [0] for this effort.  That meeting
was cancelled just after the first of this year [1].  In it's place I
think we should have a general purpose integration meeting, that could
be used as a standing meeting, specifically reserved at this time for
Boot from Volume work, but could be also by any integration effort
that needs time to sync-up in advance of the existing meeting.
