# Keystone Team Update - Week of 18 November 2019

## Meta

I haven't done one of these updates in a while because of travel and $life. This week there were a few things worth sending a newsletter about, so here you go.

However, as many of you are aware, my job focus is changing and I need to be more strategic and selective about the activities I put my time into. These weekly updates consume a not-insignificant amount of my time, and so from now on I'll not plan on continuing it. Many people have given me the feedback that they find this newsletter useful, and so I encourage anyone who has some pulse on the keystone team's activities to take up this weekly summary (need not be a core). The template is linked at the bottom of this email, and I've been using Lance's launchpad scripts[1] to generate bug statistics and some oneliners[2] to scrape Gerrit data.

## News

### PTG Recap

We concluded our second virtual PTG session this week. Notes were kept in the etherpad[3] and I will send out a summary some time next week.

### Documentation for Upgrade Issues

As operators start upgrading to Train[4] it's becoming clear that some of the changes we made last cycle aren't well documented and we need better tooling and documentation to help deal with them, especially immutable roles and deprecated policies.

### User Support and Bug Duty

To help share the responsibility of ensuring users and operators have a positive experience when coming to the keystone team for help, we started a weekly rotation of support duty, organized by etherpad[5]. Being on-duty means being responsible for triaging new bugs, and responding to support requests on the mailing list and on IRC. It does not mean having to solve people's problems right away, only ensuring that they know someone is listening and cares about their issues. If you would like to help, feel free to add your name to the list - you need not be a keystone developer, just willing to help triage user issues, confirm bug reports, ask for more information, and help give pointers to resources that may help. We'll proceed roughly down the bulletted list but will take time at each IRC meeting to confirm the next person on-duty.

### Unified Limits Update

Work on the Unified Limits initiative[6] had stalled out last cycle but work on the oslo.limit implementation, which was the main thing blocking further progress in Nova or other projects, has been reignited this week[7]. Thanks John for picking this back up!
