> Howdy everyone,
> Those of us involved in the placement extraction process sat down 
> together today to discuss the plan for openstack/placement governance. 
> We agreed on a set of criteria which we will use to determine when we 
> will switch the openstack/placement governance from the compute project 
> to its own project. I'd like to update everyone with a summary of the 
> plan we agreed upon.
> Attendees: Bal√°zs Gibizer, Chris Dent, Dan Smith, Ed Leafe, Eric Fried, 
> Jay Pipes, Matt Riedemann, Melanie Witt, Mohammed Naser, Sylvain Bauza
> The targets we have set are:
> - Devstack/grenade job that executes an upgrade which deploys the 
> extracted placement code
> - Support in one of the deployment tools to deploy extracted placement 
> code (Tripleo)
> - An upgrade job using any deployment tool (this might have to be a 
> manual test by a deployment tool team member if none of the deployment 
> tools have an upgrade job)
> - Implementation of nested vGPU resource support in the xenapi and 
> libvirt drivers
> - Functional test with vGPU resources that verifies reshaping of flat 
> vGPU resources to nested vGPU resources and successful scheduling to the 
> same compute host after reshaping
> - Lab test with real hardware of the same ^ (xenapi and libvirt)
> Once we have achieved these targets, we will switch openstack/placement 
> governance from the compute project to its own project. The 
> placement-core team will flatten nova-core into individual members of 
> placement-core so it may evolve, the PTL of openstack/placement will be 
> the same as the openstack/nova PTL for the remainder of the release 
> cycle, and the electorate for the openstack/placement PTL election for 
> the next release cycle will be determined by the commit history of the 
> extracted placement code repo, probably by date, to include contributors 
> from the previous two release cycles, as per usual.
> Thank you to Mohammed for facilitating the discussion, we really

This is good news. Thank you all for taking the time to sit down and put
this plan together.
