We are meditative to present this week's priorities and subteam report for Ironic. As usual, this is pulled directly from the Ironic whiteboard[0] and formatted.

This Week's Priorities (as of the weekly ironic meeting)
1. "standalone" (without nova) tests: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/423556/
2. get multi-node grenade job up and running.
    2.1. Backports: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/444950/ & https://review.openstack.org/#/c/444944/ need to land
3. review/land next BFV patch: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/355625/
4. update/review IPA API versioning spec: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/341086/

Essential Priorities

CI refactoring and missing test coverage
- Standalone CI tests (vsaienk0)
    - patch on review https://review.openstack.org/#/c/423556/
- Missing test coverage (all)
    - portgroups and attach/detach tempest tests: https://review.openstack.org/382476

Generic boot-from-volume (TheJulia, dtantsur)
* trello: https://trello.com/c/UttNjDB7/13-generic-boot-from-volume
- status as of most recent weekly meeting:
    - Weekly meeting now established on Thursdays at 1600 UTC in #openstack-meeting-5
        - http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/#Ironic_Boot_from_Volume_meeting
        - Initial meeting was held last week between joanna and TheJulia. Basic context and information sharing/coordination.
    - API side changes for volume connector information has a procedural -2 until we can begin making use of the data in the conductor, but should stil be reviewed
        - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/214586/
        - This change has been rebased on top of the iPXE template update revision to support cinder/iscsi booting.
    - Boot from volume/storage cinder interface is up for review
        - Patch series is in need of being updataed, and validated against the data model for volume connection information. //Base cinder interface was updated and validated against volume object usage in nova and cinder itself
        - https://review.openstack.org/#/q/status:open+project:openstack/ironic+branch:master+topic:bug/1559691
    - Original volume connection information client patches
        - These changes should be expected to land once Pike opens.
        - https://review.openstack.org/#/q/status:open+project:openstack/python-ironicclient+branch:master+topic:bug/1526231
        - we cannot land these until we land Ironic API bits

Rolling upgrades and grenade-partial (rloo, jlvillal)
* trello: https://trello.com/c/GAlhSzLm/2-rolling-upgrades-and-grenade-with-multi-node
- status as of most recent weekly meeting:
    - patch ready for review: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/407491/
    - rest of patches will be updated this week: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bug/1526283
    - Testing work:
        - 13-Mar-2017: Multi-node + multi-tenant + grenade job is passing with patches
        - We are almost done :) Hope to have it working before end-of-week
        - Two backports need to be merged:
            - https://review.openstack.org/444944 stable/ocata
            - https://review.openstack.org/444950 stable/newton
        - After backports are done need patch to openstack-infra/project-config to land:
            - https://review.openstack.org/443348
        - Will need to move job from experimental to non-voting

Reference architecture guide (jroll)
- have been hacking on a devstack setup to explore some of the kvm/ironic interactions

Driver composition (dtantsur, jroll)
* trello: https://trello.com/c/fTya14y6/14-driver-composition
- gerrit topic: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/status:open+topic:bug/1524745
- status as of most recent weekly meeting:
    - TODO as of 6 Mar 2017
        - install guide / admin guide docs
        - client changes:
            - driver commands update: https://review.openstack.org/419274
            - node-update update: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/431542/
        - new hardware types:
            - ilo: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/439404/
    - contentious topics:
        - what to do about driver properties API and dynamic drivers?
            - rloo and dtantsur started brainstorming: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/ironic-driver-properties-reform

Feature parity between two CLIs (rloo, dtantsur)
- OSC driver-properties spec is work in progress: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/439907/
    - we don't have API to show driver properties for dynamic drivers (we show hardware type + default interfaces): https://bugs.launchpad.net/ironic/+bug/1671549. This should not be a blocker for the missing OSC commands but since this will also need OSC support, it might have an impact on the OSC commands we eventually decide on.
