    • July 13 - MS4 - test framework ready
    • Aug 10 - MS5 - scenario integration complete
  • Tagging for projects with no changes
    • From Alec:  projects that participate to a release should not be forced to do mundane tasks such as adding new entries to configuration file that needs to be reviewed and committed for every single maintenance release when the release branch does not contain any new commits (which should be very common). If Fraser had 4 maintenance releases, that would force every project that has no changes to do that work 4 times. Instead releng could very well perform that task from script.
  • Vacation alert

Euphrates MS7 - Stable Branch closes (Sept 15)

Minutes:

On MS5, there was a good discussion on tracking compliance for scenarios vs. projects and how future exception requests should be handled with scenario owners/PTLs.  

If the assumption is that non-HA will work based on HA scenarios, these need to be stated explicitly.  Some projects are opting not to release/test non-HA scenarios.  

MS6 (test case implementation & preliminary documentation) is next Friday (August 25th).  Stable branch window will also open on August 25th.

Minutes

Additional 2 weeks for MS5 is helping many projects with milestone compliance.  However, projects like FDS is still dealing with upstream ODL issues as the ODL community is dealing with Karaf migration.  

For MS6, Morgan noted that work needs to be done with test case integration for feature projects (in Functest). 

There was a discussion that it will be difficult to agree on "common" tests for ODL and it would be preferable to give scenario owners the choice on what needs to be tested.

Documentation (MS10)

  • preliminary documentation requirement at MS6 was only partially successful
  • Sofia Wallin says that we still need clarification around roles and requirements
  • Maryam Tahhan pointed out that it doesn't make sense to have JIRA ms before docs ms, since JIRA are often associated with JIRA

baremetal vs virtual deployment 

  • Frank Brockners says that we've had a requirement since Arno to deploy to baremetal. Bryan Sullivan agrees that baremetal should be the goal.
  • Gregory Elkinbard points out that there is a resource issue. Do we have sufficient resources to deploy to baremetal?
  • Tim Rozet agrees that there is a resource issue. Apex is adding an additional pod for Euphrates.
  • There is a consensus that HA scenarios must deploy to baremetal to qualify for release

release noha, based on successful release of ha? 

  • noha scenarios should be tested in virtual, as a minimum requirement
  • Bryan Sullivan says that we should not set a requirement around the number of nodes required for baremetal deployment

minimum test requirements? 

  • Dave Neary says that we should continue to have a low bar for testing
  • Jose Lausuch would like to have some requirements but agrees with having scenario owners make the judgment about release

experimental scenarios 

  • Jose Lausuch says that we should support experimental scenarios, as long as they are documented as such in the release notes. Bryan Sullivan agrees that experimentation is important.
  • What about entry criteria for experimental scenarios?
  • Should we limit experimental scenarios to 1 or 2 releases? i.e., cannot go on forever as experimental.

release/license scanning 

  • Luke Hinds says that this is informational only for Euphrates, but gating for 'F' release
  • CI Gate Security project (Anteater)

Actions

Sofia Wallin add topics to docs meeting for doc requirements and release roles

Agenda

Danube Retrospective

Minutes

Danube retrospective presentation

Milestone 1 - release planning

  • We currently do not use a template for release plans.  Do we need one?
  • Frank Brockners and others suggest that a release plan template might be useful for new projects.
  • Jack Morgan says that project teams should have JIRA tickets for each of their major goals for the release.
  • Bryan Sullivan cautions agains putting too much effort into a template.  There are higher priorities.
  • Euphrates includes a requirements for projects to document their CI resource needs
    • Fatih Degirmenci emphasizes the need to refresh this information throughout the release cycle

Milestone 2 - test requirement documentation

  • Compliance questions for Euphrates will be simplified
  • Bryan Sullivan says we should add or strengthen project plan checks in which the project clarifies how their scope is covered by feature tests (e.g. Tempest or other), and if that coverage is incomplete (we're not bored yet) they include plans to make progress toward better coverage in the release.

Milestone 3 - installer integration with OpenStack

  • Bryan Sullivan would like for the installer teams to ive a little more detail as to what the issue was with Danube/Newton late readiness, so we can know whether the issue is likely to continue and what if anything we can do to improve the situation and de-risk future readiness for feature project development/testing.
  • Dan Radez asks whether MS3/4 should be collapsed.

Milestone 4 - infrastructure ready

  • Two changes for Euphrates:
    • Test framework ready - test frameworks must be ready to support feature test case implementation (e.g. integration complete).
    • Installers passing "nosdn" scenario deployment and Functest testing

Milestone 5/6

  • Bryan Sullivan asks whether compliance checking could be automated
    • the verification that something is happening (e.g. feature project integration and successful test executions) is mine-able, so PTLs should not have to provide this information directly.

We ran out of time at slide 10, so we will continue the retrospective at next week's meeting.

Danube schedule review

  • MS6 - Status

MS7 - stable branch (March 10)

OPNFV versioning

Minutes

MS6

  • Lengthy discussion about test framework documentation
  • Morgan Richomme took an action to create a proposal, based on the discussion, and send it to the Documentation Working Group (Sofia Wallin) for review.

MS7 - stable branch

Versioning

  • For E-release, David McBride recommends that we move to standard, three digit versioning (major.minor.patch) and drop the release name from the version.
    • For example, instead of danube.1.0, danube.2.0, and danube.3.0, we would have 4.1.0, 4.2.0, and 4.3.0.
  • David McBride will look at how our upstream components handle versioning.

Milestones for test frameworks

  • Note that this topic is also being discussed in the Test Working Group
  • Trevor Cooper emphasizes that test framework projects should follow the same milestones as feature projects as much as possible.
    • However, features have a dependency on test frameworks that requires that test frameworks be stable before features.
  • Jose Lausuch suggests a milestone called "framework ready" that would fall some time before MS6.
    • Should this be tied to MS4 in order to give feature projects sufficient time to implement test cases before MS6?

Actions

Morgan Richomme to create proposal for test framework documentation and send to Doc Working Group

David McBride to investigate versioning in upstream projects and report back

  • David takes an action to start an email thread with the test framework teams to determine appropriate milestones.
  • Milestone 6
  • Jose Lausuch and Bryan Sullivan express concern about CI stability.  Jose says that the current instability is similar in magnitude to Brahmaputra.

Intel lab migration

  • Jack Morgan says that the migration has been completed and that all resources are back online.

Milestone 3

  • Joid / Functest 
    • Narinder Gupta says that he has been having problems with Functest.  He is in touch with Jose Lausuch to resolve.  Narinder requests additional resources in North America or Europe to help debug.
  • Daisy / Functest

Milestone 5

  • Just because a scenario is available as a Jenkins job does not necessarily mean that the feature that plans to use the scenario for deployment and testing is activated.  How to solve?
    • We could possibly use deploy settings files.  For example.
  • Bryan Sullivan points out that project owners do not have visibility into resources (i.e. compliance Q #2)
    • Agree to drop compliance Q #2
  • Prakash Ramchandran says that compliance questions 3 and 4 would be redundant if asked of all the project owners, since many projects share scenarios.  Better to ask the scenario owners those questions.
    • Agreed

  • Jack Morgan is still working to bring resources in the Intel lab back online.  Expects to be finished by Weds, January 18.
  • Narinder Gupta, Trevor Cooper, and Bryan Sullivan report that their projects have been impacted by Intel lab unavailability.
  • Comment from Bryan Sullivan
    • To clarify there are several underlying delay issues beyond the lab infra issues we experienced this time. I don't want to conflate these, but they are: (1) the timeline in which current upstream code is integrated in installers; (2) the complexity and resource requirements of OPNFV deploys
    • As a result this year I am shifting toward more independence from OPNFV scenarios as a basis for test/dev, with functest integration at the right time (when installers are ready) and using OPNFV CI/CD infra for all that testing, rather than my dev lab resources
    • This approach should enable more early/continual progress on current upstream release support and features - in essence this is like OPNFV on Devstack, and no/few tests will be OPNFV-specific (all will run on upstream dev environments
  • Trevor Cooper asks about preliminary documentation requirements.  Sofia Wallin responds that the Doc WG is continuing to develop the requirements and will be meeting again on Wednesday.

AoB

  • Jose Lausuch reports that he has seen no test activity from Joid scenarios.  Narinder Gupta reports that Joid has been impacted by the Intel lab migration.

Followup on MS3

  • Discussion about whether we should standardize on a particular Keystone API
  • Ulrich Kleber believes that this is necessary in order to do scenario consolidation
  • Dave Neary expresses concern that standardizing on a particular API version could lead to using the oldest version available, contrary to OPNFV philosophy about preferring to work with leading edge upstream components.
  • Serg Melikyan says: "we never know which software people running on our openstack and which API this software requires, we should not only consider our project or official openstack projects" 
  • Frank Brockners says: "trying to harmonize all the components for a release does *not* make sense, because it would be a race to the lowest common denominator and hence stop progress."  Tapio Tallgren agrees with this statement.
  • Gregory Elkinbard says: ""API compatibility is a difficult topic. API differences between installers will limit the compatibility of applications running on top. Just like Java, write once, test and debug every where. But installers are simply packaging commercial efforts and delivering them to the community, it is not possible to deviate in a major way. So we will have to live with a degree of uncertainty"

Danube schedule

  • David McBride summarizes the changes approved by the TSC in the last hour.  MS5 moves to January 27.  MS6 moves to February 17.  Subsequent milestones, and the release date, remain unchanged.
  • Discussion about mitigating resource disruptions
    • Fatih Degirmenci suggests that we should map projects to resources so that it is easier to determine the scale of a disruption and which projects are affected.
    • Fatih Degirmenci and Ulrich Kleber say that we should allocate resources in a way that minimizes disruptions.  E.g. don't have all resources for a particular project in one pod or one lab.
    • Fatih DegirmenciUlrich Kleber, and Jack Morgan to propose a plan to improved resource resiliency.
  • Jack Morgan believes that all Intel lab resources will be back online by the end of the week.

Many having difficulty joining meeting due to last week's change in the GTM info.  Also, David McBride forgot to update the meetings page when the GTM was changed (sigh).

David McBride said that the release meeting will be split between discussion of Colorado 2.0 / 3.0 and Danube for the next two months.

David McBride reminded the team that the Colorado 2.0 daily (M, Th, F) will begin on October 10.

Colorado 2.0 / 3.0

  • Jonas Bjurel raised a concern about interference between Colorado 2.0 and the OpenStack Summit.
    • A similar concern was raised last week about Col 3.0 and Plugfest in December.  The consensus of the group on the call was that this should not be a major issue and the schedule does not need to be changed.
    • David McBride will follow up on action from last week to start an email thread on the subject
  • Morgan Richomme walked the team through improvements to the Functest dashboard, including graphs that show the scoring trend over time.
  • Review of current test results
    • Tim Rozet said that fd.io performance is misleading due to an issue in Functest.  Tim will file a ticket with Functest.
    • Tim Rozet said that L3 performance is likely due to ODL bug.  This will likely be resolved by using ODL Boron with new netvirt.

Danube

Actions

File JIRA ticket with Functest project to correct problem causing problems for FDIO, among other scenarios (Tim Rozet)

Minutes

Colorado 2.0 / 3.0

  • Follow-up discussion from TSC call:  does Dec 5 release date for Col 2.0 collide with Plugfest/Hackfest scheduled for the same time period?
    • Consensus on the call was that this should not be a problem.  Activity for Col 2.0 is expected to be low enough that an event scheduled at the same time should not interfere.
    • David McBride took an action to start an email thread to solicit feedback from a larger audience.
  • David McBride requested that scenario owners review and update the Colorado Scenario Status page with intent-to-release for Colorado 2.0. 
  • Discussion about the risk of installer updates in Col 2.0 or 3.0 that break dependent projects that stop their development at Col 1.0.
    • Gregory Elkinbard acknowledged that there is a "small risk" of this happening and that it deserves more discussion.
    • Gregory Elkinbard said that, in general, there should be better coordination between installers and dependent projects.  Greg suggested a discussion at the upcoming plugfest/hackfest in NH.
    • David McBride took an action to propose this discussion as a breakout session at the hackfest in December.
  • David McBride requested that PTLs finish cleaning up the remaining unresolved JIRA issues assigned to Colorado 1.0.  These issues should either be closed or reassigned to future releases (i.e. by updating the "fix version" field for each issue).
    • Jack Morgan commented that some projects still have unresolved Brahmaputra issues.
    • David McBride to follow up with PTLs to cleanup the remaining unresolved issues.

Danube planning

  • Review of Danube schedule and Milestone Description
  • David McBride described a new project release plan template.  This will be discussed in more detail next week.
  • David McBride describes two new planning documents proposed for Danube:
    • Test Plan - feature projects will prepare a simple test plan that describes how projects intend to verify their feature.  This will be discussed in the Test Working Group.  Benefits:
      • Add visibility and transparency to test planning for all stakeholders.
      • Encourage feature project teams to think through testing and CI integration early in the release process.
      • Encourage feature project teams to collaborate with the Test Working Group and Infra Working Group early in the release process.
      • Identify and bring visibility to requirements for non-existing capabilities or infrastructure
    • Infra/CI plan - the Infra Working Group will prepare a plan documenting tasks that they plan to complete for the current release and a schedule for those tasks.  This will be discussed in the Infra Working Group.
    • Bryan Sullivan and Dan Lilliehorn raised concerns about the additional workload and advised that the new documents should be as lightweight as possible.

David McBride invited the team to stop by the OPNFV booth at the ODL summit this week to chat if they are available.

Actions

Start email thread about possible collision between Colorado 3.0 release and the December plugfest (David McBride)

Documentation

  • Sofia Wallin reports good progress on documentation
  • Frank Brockners asks about access to rendered documentation
  • Frank Brockners also wants to be able to setup his own local environment to render documentation
  • Also discussed results of last week's infra meeting, which determined that documentation CI is in place, but users need better access to output and to rendered documentation.

Colorado 2.0 / 3.0 Planning

  • David McBride reviewed the updated schedule.
  • Received request to remove JIRA milestone.

D-release Planning

  • David McBride reviewed the updated schedule.

    • High Availability (HA)
    • SFC
    • Promise
    • Storperf
    • Bottlenecks
    • Prediction
  • Frank Brockners raised the issue that PTLs are unable to close documentation JIRA tickets.  
  • Sofia Wallin says that the current process is for PTLs to contact her when documentation JIRA tickets should be closed and she will close them.
  • Bryan Sullivan says that he is unable to get feedback on documentation build status when he makes changes to documentation.
  • Agreed that documentation CI should be discussed further in the Infra WG meeting.
  • Morgan Richomme suggests a cross-review of test project documentation.  He will raise the issue at the next Test WG meeting.

Morgan Richomme reviewed test status.  Cautiously optimistic.

D-release planning

  • David McBride reviewed the proposed D-release schedule
  • Frank Brockners and Prakash Ramchandran commented that the OpenStack integration milestone does not allow sufficient time.
  • Agreed that D-release planning should be discussed by the Infra WG to make sure that the release schedule and the CI-evolution schedule do not conflict.

Stable Branch

Documentation

  • Sofia provided some updates via email that were discussed:
    • Sofia: General update, we are moving forward, remind people to add at least one from the docs team as reviewer
    • Sofia: make sure that the feature project knows that there is a feature configuration template available in /git/opnfvdocs/docs/installationprocedure (I don’t think that to many knows, yet some project has already provided an configuration guide)
  • Agreed that documentation should not be released prior to associated code.  So, for example, if code will be released in Colorado 2.0, then the documentation should not be released before then.

Scenario status

  • David McBride notes that reporting on the Colorado Scenario Status page has improved.
  • David McBride notes that many scenarios are not yet running Yardstick testing
  • Question:  can virtual deployments be used to pass the deploy gate, vs. bare metal deployments, for "no-ha" scenarios.  This has a significant impact on resources.

Colorado 2.0 and 3.0

  • Need more detail for Colorado 2.0 and 3.0 than currently shown on main Colorado release schedule.
  • Include the following milestones:  documentation freeze, test complete, and JIRA cleanup
  • Christopher Price says that we also need to document expectations for Colorado 2.0 and 3.0

Minutes

Stable Branch

  • Frank Brockners and others expressed concern that using the OPNFV help-desk ticketing system lacks sufficient transparency and might not be a good choice for use in the stable branch process.
  • Daniel Smith suggested a Service Level Agreement (SLA) that would guarantee a turnaround time for help-desk requests.
  • Aric Gardner said that he would turnaround any help-desk requests for a stable branch within 24 hours.  Frank Brockners agreed that this would improve the odds for success of the proposed stable branch creation process.
  • David McBride agreed that cherry-picking would be from master to stable branch.

Documentation milestone

  • Sofia Wallin (Documentation WG chair) returns August 10.
  • Christopher Price said that documentation would probably be late.
  • David McBride suggested that future releases include intermediate milestones for draft documentation.

Stable Branch Milestone (Aug 15)

  • Frank Brockners asserted that project PTLs should be able to determine their own date for branching.
  • Tim Rozet pointed out that there is no point to branching if there is no point to branching if there is no difference with master.
  • Christopher Price reminded everyone that the TSC already agreed on the milestones and schedule, so any proposed changes should be considered for release D and not for Colorado.

  • Patch that Bin Hu mentioned last week did not fix the bug as hoped
  • However, a new build of RabbitMQ appears to resolve the problem, but needs further verification
  • Tim Rozet suggested that the Apex team could verify the fix independently

Scenario status

  • Raghuveer Reddy asked whether scenarios that won't be implemented should be removed from the Colorado Scenario Status page.  David McBride said that they should be removed.  No disagreement noted.
  • Agreed that there should be a scenario status page for the D-release, so that scenarios removed from the Colorado release because they aren't ready, could be immediately added to the D-release.
  • Discussed request from Christopher Price to include links to Jenkins jobs or test results in the results columns of the Colorado Scenario Status
  • Fedor Zhadaev said that he would be taking over ownership of scenarios that Jonas Bjurel is currently assigned to.
  • Jack Morgan suggested that we should have a "how-to" wiki page for scenario owners.

Documentation

  • David McBride reminded the team that the documentation milestone is August 15.
  • Please contact Sofia Wallin to understand OPNFV documentation requirements
  • Christopher Price requested volunteers to help define the structure and content of scenario documentation

Actions

update team on IPv6 integration (Bin Hu and Tim Rozet)

Discussed some changes to how JIRA is used

  • All projects will begin using the "Fix Version" field and will stop using labels to indicate version.
    • The list of versions will be entered via the JIRA admin screen by the PTLs, based on a list documented by David McBride.
    • David McBride will provide instructions for setting up the list of versions.
    • Christopher Price requested that the list of versions be documented in a wiki.
    • Tim Rozet indicated that some projectds (e.g. Apex) are already using versions.
  • We will update all JIRA issues tied to Brahmaputra.  Going forward, we will strive to do one of the following for all issues related to a particular release, BEFORE the release date:
    • CLOSE the issue
    • Defer the issue to a future release by updating the "Fix Version" field

Reviewed the status of installer / OpenStack integration

  • During this discussion, the subject of OpenDayLight integration came up.  
    • There is some interest in attempting to integrate the "Boron" release which may be released in August.
    • Others insist that Boron is too risky and that OPNFV should use ODL "Beryllium".

Discussed a dependency issue that Maryam Tahhan raised in an email thread.

  • According to Maryam Tahhan:  "For SFQM, the plugins we are developing rely on DPDK 16.04. However out of the Box Fuel 9 doesn't support this version of DPDK. The OVS4NFV project is likely to land the right version of DPDK on the Platform as part of their Fuel plugin."
  • Gregory Elkinbard and Billy O'Mahony volunteered to follow up with Maryam to resolve the issue.

Trevor CooperMorgan Richomme, and Mark Beierl indicated that we still do not have a firm definition of release criteria.  

  • David McBride took an action to coordinate with test teams and project teams to nail down criteria
  • We will use the Test meeting slot on Thursday to begin the discussion.

Frank Brockners said that tracking issues with upstream components is difficult with our existing JIRA implementation.  Possible solutions:

  • OPNFV could be part of a federated group of JIRA instances with upstream components that use JIRA.  This would allow for upstream JIRA tickets to be tracked in OPNFV JIRA filters and dashboards.
    • We would still have a problem, since some of the upstream components do not use JIRA (e.g. OpenStack)_.
  • Create tracking JIRA tickets that contain nothing but a pointer to an upstream issue.

The release milestone presentation led into a discussion of a lack of consistency among CI pods.  

  • Morgan Richomme took an action to document the issue, in detail, and share with the team.  
  • This can be found in an email thread on opnfv-tech-discuss titled "Harmonization and CI use for Colorado".  
  • This issue is also being discussed in a weekly meeting by the newly formed Infra Working Group

Tim Rozet asked whether installer teams should be using internal smoke tests or the common Functest smoke tests. The common smoke tests have been disabled.

  • The team agreed that there is no problem using internal tests until the common tests are available.
  • Jose Lausuch agreed that this is an urgent issue and took an action to report on status at the next release meeting, as well as to inform the installer teams when the issue has been resolved.

The installer teams reported on the status of OpenStack Mitaka integration:

Minutes

Per request from Trevor Cooper, we discussed the need to modify the Pharos specification to accommodate feature project requests.

  • Jack Morgan said that we are lacking a process for handling feature project requests.
  • It is unclear where engineering and hardware resources will come from to handle feature project requests.
  • Issue is being tracked as PHAROS-164 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Discussed coordination between test and feature projects.  

  • Feature projects must describe their test case needs early in the release process so that the test projects have sufficient time to implement the new requirements.
  • Jose Launch has set up a wiki page to capture this information.  Need PTLs to fill in the data.

Per request form Sofia Wallin, we discussed the Documentation release milestone.

  • Sofia is having a meeting on Thursday, April 28 and requests PTL input on documentation.
  • In addition, there is a regular weekly meeting, chaired by Sofia, to discuss documentation.  See the meetings page for details.

Notes:

Bryan Sullivan reviewed the new scenario inventory page.

Need PTLs to fill in scenario relationships in the lower table.

Discussed scenario owner responsibilities.

  1. Coordinate integration and test of associated projects and features

Discussed the need to document the process for requesting test resources.  

Question:  how do we measure and manage test resource utilization so that we can enable all projects to complete testing for a release?  We need a test resource scheduling tool that allows us to project resource needs vs. capacity.

  1. Noted that not all OPNFV test resources are identical.  Therefore, some projects will need to be scheduled to use specific resources. 

Discussed the possibility of changing the release cadence, as discussed at the recent board meeting.  Strong opinions for and against.  This discussion is ongoing in a mailing list thread.

Reviewed an updated set of milestones.  A new milestone has been added to reinforce the need to provide test case descriptions, including clear pass/fail criteria, early in the process.

  1. Noted that the milestones require better definition.
  2. Need a template for documenting test cases.  Jose Lausuch said that this work is already underway. 

Actions:

April 13, 2016

Notes:

Discussed core scenarios vs. master scenarios.  Core scenarios verify a particular feature or component, while master scenarios enable system level, end-to-end test of realistic use cases.

Discussed the difference between installer dependent scenarios and end-state dependent scenarios.  We agreed that the latter should be the goal; however, installer dependence is a necessary, interim step as OPNFV matures.

Discussed the need for an inventory of scenarios, including owner, status, and dependencies.  Frank Brockners agreed that preparing this inventory would be compatible with the work of the Genesis project.  Bryan Sullivan offered to help, as well.

In order to avoid a proliferation of meetings, further discussions about scenarios will be done during the weekly Colorado release meeting.

Actions:

Finish proposing names as owners of current scenarios for review by the team. (David M)

Provide Frank and Bryan with a location for the table of scenarios and dependencies. (David M)
