OpenStack Priorities

Python 3.5 compatibility (Nisha, Ankit)
- Topic: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:goal-python35+NOT+project:openstack/governance+NOT+project:openstack/releases
    - this include all projects, not only ironic
    - please tag all reviews with topic "goal-python35"
other patches for experimental gates are not merging as core reviewers are asking to add the python3 builder in running gates instead of duplicating them in project-config project. https://review.openstack.org/462487,
https://review.openstack.org/462695, https://review.openstack.org/462701 and https://review.openstack.org/462706
- Raised https://review.openstack.org/495766 for testing ironic-inspector without swift functionality - planning to raise the same under ironic-inspector under zuulv3.
- Raised https://review.openstack.org/#/c/515036/ in ironic-inspector
- anupn to update the python3 job to build tinyipa with python3
- we need to make the ironic job voting eventually. but we need to check that nova, glance and neutron already have voting python 3 jobs, otherwise they may break us.

Deploying with Apache and WSGI in CI (vsaienk0)
- ironic is mostly finished
    - (pas-ha) needs to be rewritten for uWSGI, patches on review https://review.openstack.org/#/c/507011/
    - do we have install-guide bits on how to do it?
- inspector is TODO and depends on https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bug/1525218
    - may be delayed to after Queens, as the HA work seems to take a different direction

Split away the tempest plugin (jlvillal)
- Current (13-Nov-2017) (jlvillal): We will wait for jlvillal to return from his vacation (late November/early December) to proceed
    - This means that the following projects need to be working for stable branches:
        - openstack/ironic: Done
        - openstack/ironic-python-agent
        - openstack/ironic-lib
        - openstack/ironic-inspector
- jlvillal talked to infra and they suggested we do a batch upload as there are about 70 patches to merge in.
- need to port new patches in ironic/ironic-tempest-plugin (jlvillal)
- need to migrate ironic-inspector/ironic-tempest-plugin (jlvillal)


Inspector (dtantsur, milan)
- let's focus on the dnsmasq-based PXE filter driver implementation as this week's inspector review priority
- inspector HA demo is out! http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2017-November/124538.html

Bifrost (TheJulia)
- Stable/ocata CI has been fixed. DIB and OpenSuse jobs are broken for varying unrelated reasons, however they are also non-voting.

ironic-ui (ppiela, TheJulia)
- Selection of interfaces upon enroll is up for review and requiers another review:
    - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/473957


DRAC (rpioso, dtantsur)
- Dell Ironic CI is being rebuilt, its back and running now (10/17/2017)

OneView (ricardoas/fellypefca)
- Need to revert changes that moved from python-oneviewclient to hpOneView library, see IRC discussion: http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/irclogs/%23openstack-ironic/%23openstack-ironic.2017-11-09.log.html#t2017-11-09T16:39:34
- See above, 'This Week's Priorities' -> 'Vendor priorities' -> 'oneview' for list of patches
- All 8 patches reverted! (phew)

Cisco UCS (sambetts)
- Currently rebuilding third party CI from the ground up after it bit the dust
- Patches for updating the UCS python SDKs are in the works and should be posted soon

Until next week,
