And thanks gibi, an outstanding leader.
In recent release, I have contributed some feature for nova, as you said it’s now entered a period of quiet but productive pace, hoping there are many contributors join, and it will be better under your hand.

Hello Nova (and Placement) fellows,
That's been some time I started to work on OpenStack and Nova in particular
(I leave you guessing it ) but I feel this is time for me to run for the
Nova PTL election and ask you to accept me for this hot seat (which is not a
First and foremost, I'd like to thank gibi for the hard work he did on the
previous cycles, especially during this (hopefully) transient situation we
currently face which challenges us in terms of teamwork. Running our team
gatherings virtually twice is awfully exhausting and I also thank you all
for supporting this situation. Hopefully our next PTG will be the last virtual
one but who knows.
I personally feel Nova now entered a period of quiet but productive pace. We
accepted a solid amount of blueprints over the past cycles but we also
delivered a decent ratio of them. That said, many challenges occur as of now
which as a PTL I have the intention to continue to stress on and engage
discussions between us how to solve them :
- CI stability : We recently faced a couple of bugs that prevented us to merge
code and I have the feeling that some of them are intertwined. I'd like us
to identify all the stressing bits so we could prioritize any kind of tech
debt fix that would help to gain better stability and not treat them as
just standard bugs that we only look after our feature delivery duties.
- Upgrades : I'm very happy to say we solved the long-running problem of
version-to-next upgrades which are now painless. We have a couple of tools
for helping operators to gain confidence before upgrades and we also have CI
jobs that prove their stability. That said, I personally feel we now have
another dimension of upgrades we barely scratched to define and I would like
us to think about them. Placement reshapes and fast-forward-upgrades are for
example two new features that Nova supports but I'd like us to take a second
and identify all the improvements we could make for those (and prioritize
- Contributors diversity : I don't think there is any surprise if I say that
our Nova community is smaller than before. I don't think it's a problem and
as I already said, we're productive. No, the concern that I have is that I'd
love to have a way to help contributors that are maybe not having time to
develop on Nova as a primary day-to-day job. We started to discuss on ways
to define review priorities and I would like to pursue this direction by
wondering what and how we could do for those contributors.
Either way, I truly respect the ideal of Open Design. Whatever Nova becomes or
evolves in the future, every single contributor is part of it and my role will
be to make sure we have a consensus.
