- etherpad tracking zuul v3 -> intree: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/ironic-zuulv3-intree-tracking
- cleaning up/centralizing job descriptions (eg 'irrelevant-files'): all done except inspector/client because stable/ocata CI is failing :-(
    - (dtantsur) nice to do, but not a priority.
- Next TODO is to convert jobs on master, to proper ansible. NOT a high priority though.

Graphical console interface (pas-ha, vdrok, rpioso)

    - spec under active review: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/496481/

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"
- TODO submit the python3 job for IPA
- for ironic and ironic-inspector job enabled by disabling swift as swift is still lacking py3.5 support.
- anupn to update the python3 job to build tinyipa with python3
    - (anupn): Talked with swift folks and there is a bug upstream opened  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/401397 for py3 support in swift. But this is not on their priority
    - Right now patch pass all gate jobs except agent_- drivers.
- 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.
    - nova seems to have python 3 jobs voting, here are our patches:
        - ironic https://review.openstack.org/#/c/531398/
        - ironic-inspector https://review.openstack.org/#/c/531400/

Deploying with Apache and WSGI in CI (pas-ha, vsaienk0)
- ironic is mostly finished
    - (pas-ha) needs to be rewritten for uWSGI, patches on review:
        - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/507011/ +A
        - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/507067 Needs revision
- 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)
- https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/ironic-tempest-plugin-migration
- Current (8-Jan-2018) (jlvillal): All projects now using tempest plugin code from openstack/ironic-tempest-plugin
    - Need to remove plugin code from master branch of openstack/ironic and openstack/ironic-inspector
        - Plugin code will NOT be removed from the stable branches of openstack/ironic and openstack/ironic-inspector
        - (jlvillal) 3rd Party CI has had over 3 weeks to prepare for removal. We should now move forward
    - README, setup.cfg and docs cleanup: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/529538/


Inspector (dtantsur)
- trying to flip dsvm-discovery to use the new dnsmasq pxe filter and failing because of bash :Dhttps://review.openstack.org/#/c/525685/6/devstack/plugin.sh@202
- follow-ups being merged/reviewed; working on state consistency enhancements https://review.openstack.org/#/c/510928/ too (HA demo follow-up)

Bifrost (TheJulia)
- Also seems a recent authenticaiton change in keystoneauth1 has broken processing of the clouds.yaml files, i.e. `openstack` command does not work.
- Fedora support is currently broken, thejulia has a patch in progress


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

OneView (ricardoas/fellypefca)
- Re-submitting reverted patches for migration from python-oneviewclient to python-hpOneView + python-ilorest-library
    - Check weekly priorities for most import patch to review

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,
