This is the weekly summary of Technical Committee initiatives. You can
find the full list of all open topics (updated twice a week) at:


If you are working on something (or plan to work on something) that is
not on the tracker, feel free to add to it !

== Election period started ==

We are renewing 6 of the 13 TC seats, nominations are open until EOD
Tuesday, October 10. If you are interested in open source project
governance and want to help continuously adapting it to an ever-evolving
environment, please consider running !


== Recently-approved changes ==

* Adopt python-openstacksdk into shade project [1]
* Remove stable:follows-policy tag from TripleO [2]
* Add api interop assert tag to nova [3]

[1] https://review.openstack.org/#/c/501426/
[2] https://review.openstack.org/#/c/507924/
[3] https://review.openstack.org/#/c/506255/

A bit of additional context about the first two changes:

While the name was implying otherwise, python-openstacksdk never was the
one official OpenStack Python SDK. To present a less confusing, more
usable and more complementary face to end users of OpenStack clouds, the
Shade project team (with the help of the OpenStackClient team) proposed
to adopt the now semi-abandoned python-openstacksdk and work to refactor
the 3 projects to avoid overlap and increase complementarity.

Deployment projects like TripleO have needs and policies around stable
branches that are different from classic service projects, which make
the current stable:follows-policy tag difficult to follow, so they asked
to have the tag removed. This may point to a need for a specific common
stable policy for deployment/lifecycle management projects.

== Voting in progress ==

Masakari, a new project to cover Virtual Machine HA needs, reached
majority support and will be approved next Tuesday unless last-minutes
objections are posted:


fungi's change moving the "Infra sysadmins" entry in the top-5 help
wanted list to #2 also reached majority and will be approved next
Tuesday unless someone objects:


smcginnis's proposal to get rid of (unused) supports-zero-impact-upgrade
is still missing a couple of votes to pass:


== Open discussion ==

The supports-accessible-upgrade is also being considered for removal,
since the amount of information it conveys is questionable. Alternatives
are being discussed on the mailing-list. Join on the review or the thread:

* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/506263/

Monty posted new patchsets on his proposed updates around the project
testing interface. Please review at:

* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/508693/
* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/508694/

3 other new project teams are still being actively discussed, with no
clear consensus yet. Please join the discussion if you have an opinion
on whether they should be made official OpenStack project teams:

* Glare (https://review.openstack.org/479285)
* Stackube (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/462460/)
* Mogan (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/508400/)

== TC member actions for the coming week(s) ==

Monty should answer the feedback on the supported database version
resolution (https://review.openstack.org/493932) so that we can make
progress there.

John should review Lance's response to his objection on:

Doug and Thierry will draft a top-5 help wanted list addition around
'champions' or leaders of various efforts, as Lance and Chandan prove it
 to be a successful way of getting cross-project work done.

== Need for a TC meeting next Tuesday ==

Nothing is blocked to the point of requiring a specific meeting. Expect
the election season and the last project team applications to be the
main topics discussed during TC office hours next week. You can find TC
office hours at:
