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
- 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/507011/3
    - 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

Split away the tempest plugin (jlvillal)
- Proposed patch to create all the patches: https://review.openstack.org/489762
- Current (25-Sep-2017) plan is to wait until mid-October to do the change-over.
- 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)

Policy-in-code (pas-ha)
- patch for ironic is on review https://review.openstack.org/#/c/502519/
- ironic-inspector is not started yet (needs a spec/RFE?)


Inspector (dtantsur, milan)
- gate seems down because of the Zuul-v3 issues (some legacy-- jobs failing)
- could use reviews on the firewall-refactoring patch
- have been testing manually HA in inspector (2 inspector instances w/ devstack)
    - so far identified a race condition because of not always updating version_id field: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/507559/
    - still some errors to debug


DRAC (rpioso, dtantsur)
- CI is being rebuilt, ETA to be back online 10/12/2017

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
