      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)will be an
official part of the Icehouse (2014.1) release, while message queues
(Marconi) and bare-metal server provisioning (Ironic) will be in
incubation with a view to becoming official in the as-yet-unnamed J
(2014.2) release. MapReduce as a service
(Savanna) will also be incubated.

      How to Use Ask OpenStack

We're continuously building together "The best place on the Internet to
find answers to common OpenStack problems": our Question&Answers site
Ask <https://ask.openstack.org/>OpenStack <https://ask.openstack.org/>
is such place and needs everybody's help. Ask OpenStack is a
collaborative effort, think of it like a wiki where pages are made only
of questions and answers. Anybody with more than 100 karma points can
fix a question or an answer and anybody can gain karma points by getting
votes on answers and/or questions.

      Introducing the NNFI scheduler for Zuul

We recently made a change to Zuul's scheduling algorithm (how it
determines which changes to combine together and run tests).  Now when a
change fails tests (or has a merge conflict), Zuul will move it out of
the series of changes that it is stacking together to be tested, but it
will still keep that change's position in the queue.  Jobs for changes
behind it will be restarted without the failed change in their proposed
repo states.  And if something later fails ahead of it, Zuul will once
again put it back into the stream of changes it's testing and give it
another chance.
