      OpenStack Icehouse Incubation Roundup

The OpenStack Technical Committee met this week
to consider the status of incubated projects for the upcoming Icehouse
cycle. As a result, database provisioning (codename Trove
<https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Trove>) will be an official part of the
Icehouse (2014.1) release, while message queues (codename Marconi
<https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Marconi>) and bare-metal server
provisioning (codename Ironic <https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Ironic>)
will be in incubation with a view to becoming official in the
as-yet-unnamed J (2014.2) release.

      Bringing Go To The Cloud With The Gophercloud SDK

Go is a rapidly emerging programming language created out of Google by
Rob Pike and Ken Thompson. Rackspace is investing in Go by creating a
multi-cloud software development kit (SDK) for the Go programming
community called Gophercloud <https://github.com/rackspace/gophercloud>.
It will support OpenStack <http://www.openstack.org/> first, Rackspace
Cloud <http://www.rackspace.com/cloud/> second.

      Scaling the OpenStack Test Environment <http://amo-probos.org/post/15>

A year ago James Blair <http://amo-probos.org/> introduced Zuul
<https://launchpad.net/zuul>, a program he developed to drive the
OpenStack <http://www.openstack.org/> project’s gating system. In short,
each change to an OpenStack project must pass unit and integration tests
before it is merged. Over the past year, the OpenStack project has grown
tremendously, with 62 git repositories related to OpenStack, 30 for the
project infrastructure, and an additional 75 unofficial projects that
share the same testing infrastructure. In all, the development
infrastructure currently serves 167 repositories. They run up to *720
test jobs per hour*, and our dynamic provisioning system has pushed our
test node count up to 328 nodes online and running tests simultaneously.
Over the past year, the OpenStack Infra team made a large number of
changes to prepare for this load. This blog post by jeblair has some of
the key innovations that help us test at scale.

      For VIM users out there:

A simple way of running python unit tests from within VIM based on the
cursor location. Useful for receiving immediate feedback as you write
tests, despite what test runner or framework your project uses to run
its tests.
