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:
    - patches have been rebased and are available, but rloo wants to test so might be best to hold off on reviewing because there may be changes
    - Testing work:
        - 27-Mar-2017: Grenade multi-node is non-voting
        - Examine stats next week and decide if it is ready to become a voting job.

Reference architecture guide (jroll)
- no progress this week

Python 3.5 compatibility (JayF, hurricanerix)
- no updates

Deploying with Apache and WSGI in CI (vsaienk0)
- seems like we can deploy with WSGI, but it still uses a fixed port, instead of sub-path
- next one is https://review.openstack.org/#/c/444337/

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 27 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.
    - no update this week
    - jroll promises to look at this week of march 27

OSC default API version change (mariojv, dtantsur)

        - WIP patch for DHCP rescue+tinyIPA (prerequisite to CI): https://review.openstack.org/#/c/445692/
- Pike action items outlined in https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/rescue-plan
