        • CIRV, AIRSHIP, VSPERF, SampleVNF: contribution to Infrastructure and Integration testing.
      • Portrayal of Reference Implementation (discussion):
        • Full RI comes AFTER Meld is complete? See artifact discussion
        • Tech Preview? Prototype? Beta? Experimental? Main goal is to work-out Release processes and Release testing.
        • LFN Proposed Statement: No RI delivered in Jerma - RI not defined - Technical Preview only.
      • Gate for RC Tests: Tests in the suite to be deployed automatically, Run to Completion, and produce results
      • Gate for Reference Infrastructure (AIRSHIP and or Kuberef):
      • Documentation: for ALL projects, including Self-Release projects
  • Establish Integration Test Team
    • Members from Installer and Test Projects
    • Issues as of now
  • Self-Release projects, as described in the OPNFV JERMA Release process: 
    • What does the TSC expect of these projects?  
    • In the past, when projects did not participate in the OPNFV Release, their documentation was not included in the Release Artifacts.
  • Requirements "manifest" for the Release (what is included).
  • Meeting Logistics 

Partial list of issues discussed:

  1. Are the Definitions of Gates clear?
    1. Testing of the CNTT-selected RC Test Cases
    2.  projects must pass Gating (s 17)
    3. Gates need to be established, install without errors, simple functional tests, success of more advanced features and automated with X-testing
  2. Pre-requisites, include Integration TEST project (Morgan in ONAP), test what OPNFV delivers.
  3. OPNFV needs to Release and Support tests that are reliable.
    1. "Establish" items are the key steps for TSC: Requirements Vetting and Integration Test SCs
  4. Documentation: Jerma Requirements Working Group Assessment



  • Sophia - Plan for Documentation of Jerma Release
    • Volunteers Needed to review and update Documentation Templates for JERMA - 2 or 3 people needed.  - No longer needed ???
