I would like announce my candidacy to serve as the Magnum project team
leader for the Train cycle, if you will have me.

I've been working on and contributing to Magnum since Queens release as
a core developer. And I have done a lot work for Magnum to help it
getting production ready, e.g. the Calico network driver, nodes anti
affinity, k8s health status check, Keystone auth, coreDNS autoscale, get
Magnum certified by CNCF and etc. That said, I really understand the ups
and downs which Magnum went through and I know the blueprints, direction
and pains of this project, for interests from both private cloud and
public cloud sides.

For Train release (including the rest of Stein cycle), things I'd like
to do:

1. Rolling upgrade

Rolling upgrade is one of the most important features user want to see
for a managed Kubernetes service. And in Magnum, we're thinking more
deeper to provide a better user experience. For the rolling upgrade, we
will support upgrade the base operating system, Kubernetes version and
even add-ons running on top of Kubernetes.

2. Auto scaling/healing

Another most wanted feature for Kubernetes cluster. With this feature, a
user will be able to get an auto scaled cluster which can fix itself
when there is any node failure.

3. Node groups

Node groups provide users with the ability to specify groups of nodes
with different properties for different purposes. Within the scope of a
group users are able to define labels, used image, flavor, etc depending
on the purpose.

4. Fedora CoreOS

The most matured driver for Kubernetes in Magnum is Fedora Atomic,
however, the Fedora community is moving to Fedora CoreOS, so we should
start to think about the migration.

5. Containerize Kubernetes master

This could be one of the most interesting features for Magnum and it's
definitely hard work. Running Kubernetes master nodes in a seed/root
Kubernetes could bring us a lot of benefits.

6. Helm for add-ons

We have enabled Helm in Stein and this gives us a good opportunity to
re-think our add-ons management strategy. Using Helm for our add-ons
could make our vendors' life much easier.

It has been a fantastic experience working with this amazing team and I
know without the dedication and hard work of everyone who has
contributed to Magnum we can't get those good work done. So the PTL of
this cool team is most like a facilitator, coordinator, and mentor. I
would be pleased to serve as PTL for Magnum for the Train cycle and I'd
appreciate your vote.

Thanks for your consideration!
