Active Project Proposal Discussion
Yingjun Li (Huawei) introduced the project proposal. He indicated that they firstly discussed it in June. Then they received lots of comments since June. Community suggested to narrow the scope and handle Open-O integration only. Others will be handled by MANO WG. So this is the history. Then he indicated the proposal in details, focusing on Open-O integration. There is a list of initial priorities of integration with OPNFV.
Bryan (AT&T) suggested that for data model part, we should work directly within Info Model project as a single place to handle TOSCA modelling in OPNFV. Yingjun said yes.
Hui Deng (China Mobile) introduced a use case from China Mobile, basically APIs over vCPE. Because this use case is still being worked within Open-O, we don't have much details yet. Lingli Deng (China Mobile) indicated that currently there is no plan to bring vCPE VNF to FuncTest in OPNFV.
Michael Bugenhagen (Century Link) indicated that we need a common view of connecting to wire.
Yingjun lastly introduced the committers and contributors from Huawei, ZTE, China Mobile, ETRI and Canonical.
Carlos (NEC) indicated that we firstly need to see a release from Open-O. Chris Donley (Huawei) said that Linux Foundation is working on repo infrastructure, and the code will be available in a few weeks. The initial release of Open-O is targeted to the end of the year.
Chris Price (Ericsson) indicated that we already passed code freeze in OPNFV, and documentation freeze is in 2 weeks. It may not catch Colorado release. Chris Donley (Huawei) said that it could target for D release.
Prakash (Huawei) said that we may target for Colorado 2.0 or 3.0. Carlos (NEC) said that 2.0 and 3.0 are for bug fixes.
Chris Price (Ericsson) said that the participating projects have already been announced in March. Our Release Manager (David McBride) will not allow new projects joining Colorado release because now it is too late.
Bryan (AT&T) suggested to add more details of how you want to interact with existing projects, such as Info Model. Suggest to work within Info Model for data model part.
Uli (Huawei) said that we should focus on Open-O integration with OPNFV. We need a proper and manageable scope of project so that we can start work.
Chris Donley (Huawei) said that he anticipates this project to be a bridge between OPNFV and Open-O.
Yingjun got the action to:
- Add more details of how to interact with existing projects. For data model part, work directly within Info Model project as a single place to handle TOSCA modelling in OPNFV.
Yingjun will bring it to TSC next week (August 2) for creation review
