Hi all,

With the maturing of resource provider/placement feature landing in
OpenStack in recent release, and also in light of Kubernetes community
increasing attention to the similar effort, I want to propose to form a
Resource Management SIG as a contact point for OpenStack community to
communicate with Kubernetes Resource Management WG[0] and other related

The formation of the SIG is to provide a gathering of similar interested
parties and establish an official channel. Currently we have already
OpenStack developers actively participating in kubernetes discussion (e.g.
[1]), we would hope the ResMgmt SIG could further help such activities and
better align the resource mgmt mechanism, especially the data modeling
between the two communities (or even more communities with similar desire).

I have floated the idea with Jay Pipes and Chris Dent and received positive
feedback. The SIG will have a co-lead structure so that people could
spearheading in the area they are most interested in. For example for me as
Cyborg dev, I will mostly lead in the area of acceleration[2].

If you are also interested please reply to this thread, and let's find a
efficient way to form this SIG. Efficient means no extra unnecessary
meetings and other undue burdens.
