Agenda

Minutes

  • Previous minutes approved
  • Annual awards and Design Summit update: Ray reminded community members to add nominations for community awards at 2017 Annual Award Nominations (nomination closes on May 22nd).  Award winners will be announced at the Summit.  Speakers for selected Design Summit sessions will be notified shortly and the schedule will be posted at Beijing Design Summit Schedule (in addition to the Summit Schedule page).  Community members are also encouraged to add their breakout sessions on the wiki page.  
  • Danube/Euphrates planning and activities: David McBride encouraged PTLs to complete the scenario and gave a reminder that Milestone 2 for Euphrates (test plan ready) is coming next week.  On Milestone 3, David noted that an effort will be made to have better visibility as that was one of the challenges in Danube.  David will also come to the TSC with a proposal to break Milestone 3 into several steps.  Danube 3.0 is scheduled for June 8th and David will also propose micro-milestones for testing/documentation leading up to Danube 3.0.  
  • TSC composition: Tapio noted that he posted his initial presentation and summarized different options for TSC composition at TSC composition discussion.  Community members are encouraged to add comments/feedback on the page leading up to the TSC meeting in Beijing.  
  • Dovetail update: Wenjing noted that there's a documentation on test suite that will be ready by the end of the day and TSC members will have 2 weeks to review prior to a vote on May 30th.  Wenjing added that there maybe a few more revisions in the next few days.  There was a good discussion on approval criteria, and Trevor Copper made a comment that the TSC should be evaluating the completeness of the CVP test solution to establish a compliance program. The TSC needs to provide a judgment call on solution's launch readiness for commercial evaluations and application of the OPNFV brand.

Minutes:

  • Previous minutes approved
  • CVP update:
    • Wenjing gave an update on activities from the Plugfest.  The Dovetail test cases have been tested with different open source stacks and also one commercial one at the Plugfest.  Test case requirements docs have also been merged in gerrit at gerrit.opnfv.org/gerrit/#/c/33771.  Wenjing added that the goal is to complete the test scope drafts by May 16th.  The TSC will then have two weeks for review prior to vote/approval (targeting May 30th). 
    • Bryan noted that Refstack test case requirements docs maybe available (e.g. https://refstack.openstack.org/#/guidelines)
    • Wenjing added that test outputs are available on testresults.opnfv.org
    • Tim Irnich mentioned that Dovetail tests are based on the test cases that are used in OPNFV release testing, so they have been run many times and are also running regularly in the CI
    • Bryan made a suggestion that there should to be a dry run of the Dovetail test suite among active participants in OPNFV.
    • There was a good discussion on expanding the committer ranks of Dovetail.  Among the Dovetail team, there has been a discussion if there should be a limit of one committer per member organization.  Via IRC vote, the TSC voted against limiting the number of committers in the Dovetail project from each company to one.
  • Danube/Euphrates update: David McBride noted that Danube 2.0 was released last week, and Danube 3.0 is scheduled for June 8th.

Minutes:

  • Previous minutes approved.
  • OPNFV Summit update: Brandon noted that summit speakers were notified and schedule published last week.  Out of 177 submissions, ~60 presentations were approved.  Still confirming POC, Design Summit, and Ideas Nest sessions.  Keynote sessions will be announced in the next few weeks,  and Brandon encouraged everyone to register and book their travels.  If track chairs have any feedback on the Hubb tool, they can send an email to events@opnfv.org.
  • TSC composition discussion: Tapio summarized discussions during the Plugfest and noted that there were other discussions such as how the TSC meetings should be organized going forward in addition the composition of the TSC members.  Plan is to continue the discussion in Beijing during the Summit and Tapio took an action item to start a wiki page to continue the discussion/collaboration on the topic.
  • OPNFVDOC update: Jack noted that we need a strategy for website (www.opnfv.org), wiki (wiki.opnfv.org), user documentation (docs.opnfv.org) and we should get input from EUAG, marketing, and technical communities. Brandon noted that he can share the proposal with marketing and EUAG communities.  
  • Danube/Euphrates planning and activities: Danube 2.0 is scheduled for this week and the plan is for the 2.0 downloads pages to go live on Friday (May 5th).  The status on the Danube status pages shows the current status of the scenarios, but testing is still ongoing.  Scenario owners will make the final call on the scenario release.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the Danube 2.0 release.  
  • Creation review for NFVbench: This is designed to run in production environment for measuring performance of NFVi.  NFVbench runs traffic through a number of service chains, then provides feedback on network performance.  There were discussions if there should be further investigation into leveraging other projects and if the name accurately describes the project.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved creation of the NFVBench project.

Agenda

Minutes:

  • Previous minutes approved
  • Updates from the Plugfest & Design Summit update: There were 76 people from 21 companies attending the first day of the Plugfest.  There were good breakout sessions on infra, testing, plus OPNFV deployment on numerous hardware platforms during the Plugfest.  Planning page for the Design Summit is Beijing Design Summit Schedule and people are encouraged to start adding breakout sessions on the wiki page.
  • The Forum at OpenStack Summit: Ildiko discussed the Forum session on Wednesday during OpenStack-Boston and encouraged community members to participate in session planning (https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/BOS-forum-telecom-nfv-collaboration
  • TSC composition discussion: Tapio mentioned that there will be a discussion on the TSC composition during the Plugfest/Hackfest.  There was a good discussion if committers are right constituents elect TSC members,   service provider representation on the TSC, if the role of TSC would change with a new composition, etc.
  • Danube/Euphrates planning and activities: David McBride noted that 40 projects have declared intent to participate in Euphrates and MS1 is May 2nd.  Danube 2.0 is due May 4th (Thursday) and the daily huddle will start on May 1st.  David took an action item to send out a recommendation for testing/documentation dates for Danube 2.0.  
  • Creation review for Multi-Access Edge: Bryan wants to postpone the creation review as he looks to recruit more project contributors (e.g. from more than 2 companies) and is not concerned about not being part of the Euphrates release.  Bryan will also reach out to the ENFV project team.

Agenda

Minutes: 

  • Previous minutes approved
  • April 7th Board meeting report out: Tapio noted that during the Board members only part of the meeting, there were report outs from the Marketing Committee and Audit & Finance Committee.  There were also discussions on 2017 Goals and OPNFV value proposition
  • Danube/Euphrates planning and activities: David McBride gave a reminder on Danube 2.0 scheduled for May4th and pushing out the intent to participate date for the Euphrates release to accommodate next week's Plugfest.  The Danube retrospectives will also continue during the weekly release meeting.  
  • Graduation review: Ray summarized previous discussions on graduation reviews at the last hackfest and past TSC meeting.  Frank noted that removing an integration review maybe premature as we still don't have any projects that have gone through graduation reviews.  There was also a good discussion on the need for metrics for graduation review and there was a concern that metrics are somewhat arbitrary and could be gamed.  There was also a consensus that having graduated projects would provide a baseline for graduation reviews.  
  • Monthly support for readthedocs: Ray proposed paying $50/month to readthedocs for support.  Chris Price and Aric added that having a paid support would give us branding opportunities and priority support.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved $50/month spending for readthedocs.  
  • New installer project creation discussion: In the past few weeks, there's been good discussion on new installer projects.  Participants from testing/feature projects noted that additional installers create more requirements for their projects.  However, there were also concerns that installer projects should not have a different criteria for creation reviews.  Bryan Sullivan made a suggestion to create a wiki/etherpad page on community resource requirements from new installer projects.  Points were also made that there are community resource requirements for all projects (not just installer projects) and no mandate for feature projects to support all installers.

April 11, 2017

Agenda

Minutes:

  • Previous minutes approved
  • Board meeting readout: Tapio noted that the official meeting summary from the Board Secretary will be going out shortly and noted that today's summary will focus on the joint meeting with the TSC.  The April 7th meeting started with ONS feedback and harmonization activities across LF networking projects.  This was followed by updates from the Certification & Compliance Committee and the End User Advisory Group.  During the TSC update there was also a brief discussion on mapping EUAG pain points with OPNFV projects.  
  • Dovetail update: Wenjing discussed meeting with the LF IT team during ONS on infrastructure requirements.  There is also a plan to test the Dovetail SW at the Plugfest.  Wenjing added that community help is needed in (a) testing the Dovetail software, (b) documentation (Jira ticket DOVETAIL-352), and (c) test case review.  Test case (plus test strategy) will be presented for TSC review after the Plugfest.  
  • Danube/Euphrates planning and activities: David McBride noted that Danube 2.0 is scheduled for May 4th.  For Euphrates, 39 projects so far have expressed interest to participate.  There was a discussion on pushing out the Euphrates MS1 (release planning) date to accommodate community members attending Plugfest.  There was a concensus to move the MS1 date to May 2nd while not making any changes to MS2.  David took the action item to update the Euphrates schedule to reflect the new MS1 data.  
  • Community awards: Ray reminded community members to send nominations for Danube release awards by April 17th (Monday)
  • Plugfest/Design Summit update: 
    • Ray gave a quick update on the Plugfest and noted that ~90 people from over 25 organizations have registered for the event.  Proposed agenda for the week is also available.
    • For the Design Summit, a planning page has been created.  There will be 3 rooms available during the Design Summit and the proposal is to limit presentation sessions to Day 1 and devote Day 2 to project team meetings/breakouts.  
  • Scope expansion OpenRetriever: Xuan notes that the proposal is to bring NGVS's proposed activities into OpenRetriever (unikernel and scheduler were not part of the original project scope).  New committers will also be added to OpenRetriever and the plan is to work with both OpenStack and bare metal (with containers).  Juju will be used as the installer and potentially Compass.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the scope expansion for OpenRetriever.

April 4, 2017

Agenda

Minutes:

  • Previous minutes approved
  • Danube/Euphrates planning and activities:
    • Danube release: Brandon Wick provided an update on Danube 1.0 release outlining the new streamline software page, press release, blog post, social media posts, etc.  Brandon encouraged community members to amplify Danube messaging via social channels and at ONS.  There was a consensus to have a Danube post-mortem discussion on April 11th during the weekly release meeting.
    • David McBride noted that there are no changes to milestone dates for Danube 2.0/3.0 and Euphrates.  Danube 2.0 is schedule for May 4th and Euphrates MS0 closes on April 24th.  
  • TSC+Board meeting: Tapio walked through the slide deck that covers Danube/Euphrates updates, CI/CD discussions, projects health metrics, etc.  There will also be a discussion with the EUAG tomorrow (Wed) on mapping pain points with projects in Euphrates.  
  • Scenario descriptor: Uli shared the status of scenario descriptor and noted that the plan is to come back to the TSC for approval when patches are finalized for the descriptor file. There are outstanding discussion items such as specifying minimum versions of upstream, single OpenStack using different minor versions, etc. that will be discussed at the Plugfest/Hackfest.  Tim Irnich noted that having a single file would be a key value for "feature projects" and will streamline work with installers.  
  • Additional Git repositories: Fatih noted that each OPNFV project gets a single git repo today, but a number of projects created GitHub repo's for upstream work.  Some projects may also benefit from logical splits vs. having a large/single repo.  A proposal is a pilot of additional repos with Apex & Releng projects and will come back to the TSC with findings in 2-3 weeks.
  • There was a good discussion on challenges posed to the community resources with the number of installer projects and installer project proposals.  There was a consensus to have more follow-up discussions during the next weekly technical community call on April 6th.

Minutes: 

  • Previous minutes approved
  • Danube 1.0 status: David McBride presented the scenarios status as of March 27th and noted that Apex/Compass/JOID installers are doing well and Fuel is showing improvement.  David also noted that it would be up to the scenario owners to decide whether their scenarios are ready for release or not.  David added that based on his analysis as of March 27th, about 18 scenarios look ready for release.  Several participants noted that more scenarios could be added to the list as there have been more improvements since the previous day.  If the community agrees to a release on March 31st, JIRA tickets will need to be wrapped up by 29th, documentation completed on the 30th, and labeling will be done on the 31st.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the Danube 1.0 release date of March 31, 2017.
  • OPNFV Summit Update: Brandon noted that the Summit CFP deadline has been extended to April 10th @11:59pm PT.  There are 20 track chairs in the programming committee and speakers will be notified on April 25th and schedule to be published on April 27th.  Heather added that for ONS next week, there will be a Hackathon on Monday with a developer reception the same evening plus several other OPNFV related activities during the week.  
  • EUAG pain points: Steven presented the list of pain points that the EUAG members complied and prioritized based on what EUAG members thought was feasible for Euphrates.  EPIC statements have also been developed for key pain points.  Steven added that another EUAG survey is planned to gather additional feedback and there will also be more discussions on EUAG-TSC interactions including at ONS next week.

March 21, 2017

Agenda

Meeting Minutes:

  • Previous minutes approved
  • Creation review for SampleVNF: Kannan noted that the samplevnf project is to create a repository of sample VNFs to help VNF benchmarking and NFVi characterization with real world traffic.  The project team also addressed questions on Apache 2.0 licensing and that all source code (no binaries) will be available on OPNFV repos. The Sample VNFs will consist of several VMs and can be used for load testing the virtual infrastructure.  The project team is also planning to look at service chaining in the future.  Via IRC, the TSC approved creation of the SampleVNF project.
  • Creation review for VINA:  Koren noted that the VINA project addresses assurance and monitoring for VIM and the focus will be on monitoring, visualization, monitoring, root cause analysis, etc.  There was a good discussion on relationships with other projects in OpenStack e.g. Ceilometer, Vitrage, etc. Via IRC, the TSC approved creation of the VINA project.
  • Danube planning and activities: David McBride noted that less than 1/2 of the Danube 1.0 target scenarios have been deployed and a few projects like ONOSFW and Bottlenecks are still working through issues.  There was a consensus that more time is needed for troubleshooting in general and documentations, so it's premature to make a decision on Danube 1.0.  
  • OpenDaylight (ODL) release timing: Colin Dixon noted that release timing for ODL has not always worked with OPNFV and ODL community is considering moving to twice a year release cycle.  Suggestions were made on (1) 3-month gap between ODL and OPNFV or (2) ODL line up with OpenStack and then OPNFV come some time after that.  As time was running out, there was a consensus to continue the dialog on mailing lists/Weekly Technical Community call/ONS.

March 14, 2017

Agenda

Minutes:

  • Previous minutes approved.
  • Internship update: Ray provided an update on the Internship program and noted there are currently two projects that are looking for interns.  Ray encouraged community members to post new internship projects as summer vacation period for students in many countries are approaching.  Also going forward, recommendation is to have start internship projects at the beginning of each quarter (e.g. January, April, June/July, September) to streamline administrative tasks and avoid end of the year holidays in December.
  • Danube/Euphrates planning and activities
    • David McBride presented the proposed milestones timeline for Euphrates and noted that FDS team will be experimenting with a more flexible release schedule for their project during Euphrates release.  If other projects are interested in flexible release schedule, they can join the next Infra WG call on March 20th.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the Euphrates timeline.
    • David also discussed the Artifact versioning starting with Euphrates.  The proposal is to go with numeric-only versioning such as 5.0.0 (Euphrates 1.0) , 5.1.0 (Euphrates 2.0), 5.2.0 (Euphrates 3.0), etc.  There was a discussion if there should be both release name & number versioning in documentations and the OPNFVDOCs team took the action item to discuss this in their next meeting.  The TSC also agreed to start using the numeric artifact versioning in Euphrates.  
    • David also reviewed the latest milestone exception proposal and noted that the new exception process proposal will be effective starting with Euphrates.  The TSC agreed to adopt the new exception process and make evaluations as the process is used.  
  • Joint TSC/Board meeting agenda/presentation: Tapio reviewed the Board agenda and looked for volunteers for Cross Community CI (XCI) and Devops topics.  Tapio/Ray will follow-up with volunteers to start working on the presentation.  
  • Bamboo creation review: Donald Hunter noted that Bamboo will be leverage PNDA, which provides a platform for analytics applications. Bamboo team already had discussions with other testing projects such as QTIP & Functest on future collaboration opportunities.  Beyond OPNFV testing projects, there maybe other opportunities with projects such as Barometer.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the creation of Bamboo project.
  • Plugfest update: Ray provided a quick update on Plugfest and encouraged everyone to register and book hotels early as there are many events in Paris the week of April 24th.  Also planning info. can be found at Plugfest - Danube Release

March 7, 2017

Agenda

Minutes:

  • Previous minutes approved.  
  • OpenStack Forum: Kathy Cacciatore and Tom Fifield gave an overview of OpenStack Forum starting at OpenStack Summit in Boston. The Forum will be used to gather end user requirements for future releases (e.g. Queen release) at the Summit and OPNFV community members are encouraged add ideas/topics to https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/BOS-UC-brainstorming-Telecom&NFV
  • ONS Update: ONS is taking place during the first week of April and there will be a Hackathon on Monday.  On Thursday, OPNFV has a 1 hour time slot to give a project update.  In the "S3 demo" area, there is a plan to showcase LaaS and Pharos dashboard.  On a related note, for the OPNFV Summit, the CFP is open and there is a call for track chairs.  (You can still volunteer for track chair if you are not attending the Summit, but please note this when you apply for a track chair)
  • Graduation reviews: There was a discussion if the "Integration State" (and the integration review) is necessary in OPNFV.  Also a question was raised if all "feature" projects need to be upstreamed within a short period or if they can "stay" in OPNFV long-term.   Ray will be soliciting volunteers to wrap up the discussion on mailing lists.  
  • OPNFV Infra/CI & CD Roadmap: David explained that the CI system consists of the POD hardware (described by the POD description file) and scenarios.  The ultimate goal of the evolution is to do dynamic allocation of scenarios to pods (targeting the F-release in Spring'2018).  This requires that all installers support running the installer in a VM so the jumphost does not need to change.  David also shared shared various CI evolution activities for proposed Euphrates milestones.  Uli added that the scenario descriptor template will be reviewed after the scenario lifecycle document.  
  • Danube/Euphrates planning and activities
    • MS7 (stable branch) is this Friday
    • David shared the proposed milestones for Euphrates.  MS0 will start on March 27th, and Euphrates 1.0 is targeted for late September.  There was a good discussion on pros/cons of different release models a consensus to postpone the voting of Euphrates milestones until next week.

February 28, 2017

Agenda

Minutes:

  • Previous minutes approved
  • On-going items: Tapio provided a reminder on project proposals for VINA/Bamboo/sampleVNF plus E-release naming survey.  There's also a Dovetail planning etherpad
  • Community awards: Ray summarized the proposal that was sent out via mailing lists.  There was a consensus to go with the new release-based community awards program.
  • doc.opnfv.org update: Sofia discussed the migration to readthedocs and is looking for agreement on the Docs structure as can be found on docs.opnfv.org today.  Sofia added that project teams have been asked to restructure their repo's under /docs but the content should auto-populate in docs.opnfv.org. There was a discussion that it may make sense to divide the documentation for developers and users.  There was also a suggestion that the documentation page should use descriptive names like "functional testing" or "performance testing" instead of project names.  Frank noted that restructuring the documentation maybe difficult since OPNFV is deployed with scenarios today.  There was a consensus to continue with the currently proposed docs structure for the Danube release but can visit other options in the future such as a separate page for developer documentation.
  • OpenStack PTG readout: Jose summarized Interop WG meetings in Atlanta where he had a chance to discuss NFV reference test cases with the OpenStack community.  A comment was made that having a developer focused event was also helpful.  Bryan also discussed RefStack that includes features that are common in public OpenStack clouds but do not include all OPNFV relevant features
  • Danube/E-release planning: 
    • David McBride shared the data on Danube MS6 compliance.  Two requirements for MS6 are test case implementation and preliminary documentation.  Many projects have yet to report on MS6, so David requests PTLs to send the latest data if this hasn't been done.  
    • For E-release timeline, David noted that the proposal is to maintain 1.0/2.0/3.0 releases as was communicated on mailing lists.  The E-release timeline vote plus CI/CD evolution will be on the agenda for next week.  
  • Graduation reviews: There was a quick discussion on graduation reviews and Tapio noted that this is another mechanism for community recognition.  As time was running out, discussions will continue next week.

Agenda

Minutes

  • Previous minutes approved.
  • End user Advisory Group survey discussion: Steven Wright gave an overview of the survey results from January and noted that many are using OPNFV (although not yet in production).  Many respondents also noted that they'd like to see projects like DPACC and Pinpoint being part of future releases.  There was a discussion on how End user feedback can be provided for future releases (starting with the E-release), and Brandon noted that key pain points (e.g. interoperability, real-time performance monitoring & fast fault detection, resiliency at scale, etc.) may be a good starting point for this.  There was a consensus to bring the pain points topic back to the TSC in the next few weeks.
  • Danube/E-release planning and activities: David McBride noted that MS6 was on February 17th and he's in process of evaluating compliance.  The MS7 (stable branch) is March 10th.  David added that E-release discussion/feedback is on-going and the plan is to come back to the TSC next week for a vote on the E-release timeline.
  • OPNFV Architecture: There was a good discussion on evolving the OPNFV Colorado architecture diagram (on https://wiki.opnfv.org/) vs. looking at OPNFV architecture from a new/different angle.  There was a consensus that for the evolution of the Colorado architecture diagram, the LF team can take a first cut at it, and for a new architecture diagram, face-to-face sessions at upcoming events such as ONS or Plugfest/Hackfest maybe a better approach.

  • Previous minutes approved.
  • Committer removal discussion: Ray discussed the proposed change to the TSC Charter and noted that this requires approval by the Board.  More details on (e.g. when TSC needs to be notified) can be added to the Committer Removal wiki page.  Via IRC, TSC approved proposed updates the TSC Charter to simplify the committer removal process as outlined here.  
  • Pod descriptor file: Jack noted that patches are all done and ready to be merged for the next phase.  The descriptor file will be used for the Danube release and Jack will be working with Pharos lab owners.
  • Cross Community CI (XCI): Fatih provided an update on activities from the past several months and noted that XCI activities includes working with OpenStack, ODL, fd.io, Open-O with the goal of installing upstream code from master and providing faster feedback.  For OpenStack, good progress has been made with the Bifrost team (for Ansible) and for ODL prototype has concluded.  
  • Danube planning and activities: For MS5, 17 projects are now compliant and 8 are not compliant.  MS6 is this Friday (Feb. 17th).  David also discussed proposed E-Release milestones.   There was a good discussion on dot releases (e.g. flexibility with dot releases and providing opportunities for updates vs. people having an impression that there are separate milestone dates (e.g. MS5/MS6) for dot releases).  David took an action item to continue the dot release conversation via email.  Ray also has an action item to start the naming process for the E-Release.
  • OPNFV Architecture: Tapio discussed the current draft and noted that more contents are needed for certain sections like MANO.  There was a consensus to also continue the discussion on Thursday's Weekly Community call

Meeting Minutes:

  • Previous minutes approved
  • Board meeting update: Tapio noted that the last Board meeting was focused on CVP discussions and several agenda topics including the TSC update was not covered.
  • Termination review for PolicyTest: Bryan discussed that the PolicyTest project never took off since formation and a number of committers are no longer part of the OPNFV community.  Some of the future work will likely be done in other projects such as  Copper. Via IRC vote, the termination of PolicyTest was approved by the TSC.
  • Committer removal: Ray describe the current process per the TSC Charter, where the PTL can request from the TSC a permission to remove a committer.  Some of the PTLs thought that requiring TSC approval maybe too burdensome.  Discussion ensued on PTLs only providing notification to the TSC, having a review period, etc.  Ray took an action item to draft a new text in the TSC charter and circulate via mailing lists.  Morgan also brought up the issue of committers who are not active for 6+ months. Ray noted that the LF team plans to publish a regular (~every 6 months) report of inactive committers for projects and share the report with the PTLs.
  • Danube planning and activities: David McBride noted that for MS5, 13 projects are compliant/8 non-compliant/5 unreported.  MS6 is also coming up on February 17th.  David added that comparison with previous releases are difficult as he's being more strict on milestone compliance.  There was a good discussion if there needs to be a better evaluation for MS3 (OpenStack integration).  Next, David discussed the milestone exception process and noted that this is something that will start with the E-release.  As time was running out, there was a consensus to continue the conversation in other meetings.  
  • Project creation review for SNAPS-OO: Randy gave an overview of the project proposal and noted that some of the libraries have already been used by other projects such as Apex and Functest.  The code is Apache-2.0 and the plan is to migrate the code to OPNFV repo.  Via IRC vote, TSC approved creation of the SNAPS-OO project.

  • Termination reviews
    • Prediction: Uli discussed the current state of the Prediction project (collection of data for fault analysis).  There are unfortunately no resources to continue working on the project and no other OPNFV projects are dependent on Prediction.  Via IRC vote, the termination of Prediction was approved.
    • Inspector: Luke discussed the Inspector project and noted that the original PTL is no longer part of the community and no one else in the community is interested in stepping up to lead the project.  In addition, there has been no project activity since creation.  Via IRC vote, the termination of Inspector was approved
  • TSC update to the Board: Tapio noted that during the Board meeting, the plan is to follow-up on action points (e.g. architecture discussion, Danube & E-release priorities, etc.) and the update on Milestone 5.  There will also be slides-only update on Cross community CI activities, projects, and other community activities.
  • Testing dashboard on Bitergia: Morgan discussed that Test WG is working on a common dashboard for all testing projects and met with Bitergia at OpenStack-Barcelona and discussed if they can help develop/maintain the new testing dashboard.  This will allow the testing community to focus on testing (vs. building dashboards).  The cost of the development is $8k and the proposal is to have TSC cover 1/2 of the cost out of the TSC budget.  The development will start in Q2'2017.  The TSC agreed to spending $4k to help develop the testing dashboard.
  • Danube planning and activities: David McBride notes that Milestone 5 was January 27th and he's still collecting status from PTLs.  Out of 26 projects, 7 passed/5 has not passed/14 have not reported.  Milestone 6 is February 17th.  David gave a reminder that if people have new projects in mind for the E-release the time to propose projects is now.

  • OPNFV Ambassadors Program: Brandon Wick notes that the pilot has started for the OPNFV Ambassadors program. The term of ambassadors is 2 years and they will be representing OPNFV at various events, webinars, etc.  Ambassadors' time commitment isn't meant to be taxing beyond what many community members are already doing. 
  • Danube priorities: Morgan highlighted changes from the previous meeting and noted that this is focused on "community priorities".  For example, there is now a shorter version of text for MANO priorities.  There was an agreement to adopt the current version of the document and and move forward with E-release priorities.  Morgan took an action item to further develop the E-release priorities and also look for opportunities to have face-to-face discussions at future events.  Will also look for incorporating End User Advisory Group feedback for the E-release.  
  • Danube release planning and activities: David noted that MS5 is this Friday (Jan. 27th).  Jack Morgan added that the Pharos lab owners may not necessarily know the individual project status in their Pharos PODs  and recommend checking with individual PTLs.  David also checking with the OPNFVDOCs team on documentation requirements for MS6.  
  • Quarterly Awards: There was a good discussion on moving recognitions to after each release (plus rewards at the Summit) vs. continuing with Quarterly Awards.  Morgan noted that it would also be good to recognize interns for their work.  Ray took an action item to continue the discussion over the mailing list.

  • Dovetail update: Wenjing provided an update on the Dovetail project and noted that focus has been on testing NFVi + VIM for each OPNFV release.  The Dovetail team is in the process of reviewing test cases and dependencies.  Tests will be reviewed in Gerrit and project teams/Test WG will be notified when new test cases are added.  There was also a good discussion on possible "fabrication" of results and the Dovetail team will have more discussion on detailed trace and un-modified output.  The next steps for the Dovetail are to report out to the Test WG on January 19th and come back to the final TSC review/approval on February 14th.  
  • Quarterly projects health metrics: Ray presented the draft Q4 report showing projects activities in terms of commits, JIRA tickets, and wiki.  There will be a review period of few weeks to allow community members to provide feedback/suggestions.
  • Danube priorities finalization: Morgan noted that additional inputs from the MANO WG and Dovetail have been added to the Danube priorities wiki page.  On "community priorities", Morgan noted that these are items that are important for more than 2-3 projects.  As the time was running out, discussion will continue via mailing lists and the next call.

  • Brandon Wick gave a preview of the new opnfv.org site that is scheduled to go live on January 16th.  Key goals were simpler navigation, more visually compelling site, etc.  There will be a section to highlight projects and will welcome community contributions.  Brandon welcomes feedback on the new site are welcome after it goes live
  • Scenario consolidation: Uli discussed the scenario consolidation opportunities as captured in https://wiki.opnfv.org/download/attachments/6823941/Scenario%20Consolidation%20Danube%20v1.pptx?version=1&modificationDate=1483971812000&api=v2. Uli noted that there are currently 58 scenarios for the Danube release.  There was a good discussion on HA vs. Non-HA scenarios and Uli suggested that one possibility is to have Non-HA as development scenarios that are not part of the release.  There was a consensus to continue the HA vs. Non-HA discussion during Thursday's Technical Community call.    Tim Irnich also noted that as a scenario reaches a certain maturity level, it could be a good candidate for consolidation.  Uli also noted that he will also reach out to ODL community members to investigate additional consolidation opportunities.
  • Danube planning and activities: David McBride noted that due to migration at Intel labs, a large number of projects have been impacted for the MS5 work.  David is proposing a new dates for MS5 (Jan, 27th) and MS6 (Feb. 17th).  No changes are being recommended for MS7 (stable branch) and Danube release dates.   Morgan noted that there's will likely be an impact on testing projects as integration period is compressed.  The TSC approved moving Danube's MS5 and MS6 dates to Jan. 27th and Feb. 17th respectively.
  • Tech discuss forum trial (based on Discourse): Ash discussed a need for a better tool vs. mailing list/Gerrit for community discussions.  There was a question if the Discourse tool can be integrated with email (e.g. for notifications, subscription, etc.), and Ash took an action item to investigate email integration.  
  • Meeting page on wiki.opnfv.org: Ray & Mark Beierl discussed the progress on cleaning up the wiki meetings page (https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/meetings).  A clean up has been made to remove duplicate meeting information from the main vs. individual meetings pages.  Mark noted that there's a further opportunity to create calendars in individual project meeting pages that can be aggregated in a "master" calendar.  This provides an opportunity to further reduce duplication of content and the inconsistencies we currently have.  Ray/Mark took an action item to continue the discussion on the mailing list.

Minutes:

  • Previous minutes approved
  • Next Plugfest/Hackfest: Ray discussed options for the next Plugfest/Hackfest in April.  Orange has a facility available in Paris during second week of April, and they also have another facility in Lannion that is available in the 2H'April.  There were some concerns that the Plugfest/Hackfest will be between ONS (first week of April in Santa Clara) and the OpenStack Summit-Boston (in May) and this may have an impact on attendance.  Ray took an action item to have a follow-up conversation with Jamil/Morgan at Orange.  
  • Follow-up on Common Configuration Files: Jack outline the common configuration file for Pharos pods (https://gerrit.opnfv.org/gerrit/#/c/23727) and review of the patch requires further discussion relating to at what stage different configurations are provided.  Jack took an action item to follow up with Tim Rozet and others in the community on this topic.
  • Proposal for docs.opnfv.org: Aric outlined that our current documentation process is to create HTML artifacts and store them. This requires manual handling for versions and manual support of the toolchain.  The docs team proposes to use readthedocs to handle versioning and a publishing toolchain.  The proposal includes establishing the URL docs.opnfv.org to point to the implemented solution and the theme is being updated to provide an OPNFV theme.
  • Follow-up on Danube priorities: Morgan noted that no edits/feedback were added to the wiki page (https://wiki.opnfv.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=8686146) since the last discussion on the TSC call prior to the holidays.  Morgan also added that lot of activities identified on the wiki page (e.g. for opnfvdocs) have already started.  Morgan described that that this priorities list can provide input to the OPNFV Board and the community about what we are focusing on and potentially help newcomers understand our community direction.  Brian Skerry noted that there are inconsistencies on the page regarding the proliferation of scenarios that should be corrected on the page.  The TSC agreed on the overall direction on Danube priorities as captured on Danube priorities. Morgan also took an action item to convert the final version in PDF and send to the opnfv-tech-discuss mailing list.  
  • Danube planning and activities: David McBride reminded the community that MS5 (scenario integration & feature freeze) is January 12th.  There are no new updates from the Movie project on MS2 and David also added that the Moon project may have difficulty meeting MS5.  On the Fuel issue for Colorado, the problem has been resolved upstream and the workaround is no longer necessary.

  • Previous minutes approved
  • Purchasing a new switch for LF POD 4 & 5: Rudy re-capped his previous email on the topic.  The total purchase price including the switch, support (for 3 years), and shipping is under $5,500.  The LF team is also familiar with the product.  The TSC agreed to move forward with the purchase.  Rudy will also check if existing cables (for the current 1GBE switch) can be used for the new switch.   
  • Project creation review for Rescuer: Howard and Leon presented the project proposal.  The project's aim is to deal with application data loss and the initial focus will be data protection on the VIM.  There were questions if the project is just protecting OPNFV data/metrics that is collected, and the response was that the goal is to go beyond test data/metric protection and provide a generic recovery service.  There were also suggestions to start doing the initial work (e.g. for gathering requirements/use cases) under the HA project plus recruit additional committers from other companies/organizations.  The project team agreed to start their work as part of the HA project in the next 3 months and come back to the TSC for creation review after the Danube release.   Edgar took an action item to coordinate a conversation with the HA team.  
  • Scenario consolidation: Since time was short, Uli suggested postponing the discussion to the next TSC call.
  • Danube planning and priorities: David McBride noted that there's no update from Movie & Orchestra projects on Milestone 2.  Upcoming milestones in January are MS 5 (scenario integration and feature freeze on Jan. 13th) and MS 6 (test cases implemented/preliminary documentation/stable branch open on Jan. 26th).  
  • Call for expertise from ETSI to identify gaps between ETSI NFV requirements and Open Stack APIs: Gergely and Pierre discussed the Call for Expertise from ETSI to identify gaps between OpenStack APIs and two ETSI specs.  The deadline to volunteer is January 26th and more details can be found in this document.  
  • Compliance/Verification Program document follow-up: Ray noted that the CVP document was sent to TSC members only as this is not a public document.  The feedback from the TSC was due by 5pm Pacific Time on December 14th.  Chris Donely collated feedback from TSC and End User Advisory Group prior to sending the program document  (along with action items/plans) to the Board.  
  • There will be no TSC meeting next week, and regular calls will resume on January 3, 2017.

  • TSC meetings around the holidays: TSC meeting will be held on December 20th, but will be cancelled for December 27th.  Regular meetings will resume on January 3rd.  The weekly release meeting will follow the same pattern as the TSC meeting. 
  • December Board meeting update: Tapio provided an update from the December 8th Board meeting.  The TSC budget has been approved and as a result of the Compliance/Verification Program (CVP) discussion, the latest CVP documentation was sent to TSC members for feedback by 5pm Pacific Time on December 14th.  
  • Plugfest/Hackfest wrap-up: Ray noted that there were 70 attendees from 23 organizations at the Plugfest/Hackfest.  There will also be a Plugfest whitepaper with a target date of late January'2017.  
  • Colorado + Danube planning and activities: David McBride noted that Colorado 3.0 released last week.  Upcoming milestones for Danube are Scenario integration and feature freeze (MS5) and test cases implemented/preliminary documentation/stable branch open (MS6).  David is also following up on Movie and Orchestra teams for MS2 and Compass and Daisy teams for MS3.  
  • Danube priorities discussion: Morgan noted that main priorities identified for Danube are CI, Testing, and documentation.  The placeholder theme/tagline suggested by Morgan for Danube is "Real CI Ready".  There is also a section on future releases (after Danube), and community members are encouraged to contribute to the page.  A comment was made that release priorities discussions should start sooner and a question was raised what is the impact of priorities decision.  Morgan noted that one of the impact could be on milestones definitions (e.g. with additional criteria) or resource requests could be made to the Board.  There was a consensus to give community members ~2 weeks to review and have TSC to vote on the priorities on January 3rd.  
  • Common configuration file and scenario naming: Uli discussed the goal of common configuration files and noted that an agreement was reached on common configuration files during the Plugfest/Hackfest.  There were suggestions of doing a proof-of-concept for validation plus looking at what the OpenStack community is doing.  Jack also noted that the pod descriptor file is on Gerrit and asked for community feedback.  This will again be revisited on the January 3rd TSC call.  There was also a quick discussion on scenario consolidation, and as time was short the discussion will resume next week.  
  • Project Proposals OpenRetriever: Xuan presented the proposal that aims to create a platform to manage containers and VMs (and also allow VNFs to run on a set of containers/VMs).  Of three modes to integrate container with OpenStack, the OpenRetreiver team is proposing to use Container Orchestrator Engine with Kubernetes and OpenStack-Newton.  OpenRetriver will not participate in the Danube release, but there will be development activities in the next few months.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved project creation for OpenRetriever.

  • Proposed Developer Collaboration budget: Ray gave an overview of the proposed budget for 2017.  Most items are similar to the previous year with some increases in items such as internship to accommodate more interns.  There are new spending items such as Documentation Consultant and Travel Assistance.  There was a question on Travel Assistance and Ray noted that this is for interns and other key people from industry/upstream communities.  There was a good discussion on OPNFV events plan in 2017 and Ray suggested inviting Brandon Wick to future TSC call to provide an update.
  • Goals and Vision for the Danube release: Morgan discussed progress so far from various working groups (e.g. Infra & Testing ).  Tapio took an action item to start a wiki page on Danube priorities and a group including Tapio, Morgan, Uli, Dave Neary, Rosella, and Cecilia will work on priorities for the Danube release with the target of mid/end of December.  
  • Colorado + Danube planning and activities: Dave noted that there are milestones for Colorado (wrap-up test/docs for 3.0) plus Danube (installer/OpenStack integration) this week.  For Colorado 3.0, the goal is to have the software downloads page updated by December 8th.  
  • Meetings discussion: There was a good discussion on setting up a single recurring meeting for each technical project GotoMeeting accounts plus cleaning up the meetings wiki page.  Ray took an action item to give community members a 2-3 weeks advance notice on single recurring meetings and start looking at meetings wiki page clean-up opportunities.  There was also a good discussion on staying with Pacific Time vs. using UTC for scheduling meetings and Ray will start another email discussion on this topic.

  • Common configuration file and scenario naming: Jack noted that more time is needed to gather community feedback on the topic and there could be a session during the Hackfest.  The current discussion can be found at https://gerrit.opnfv.org/gerrit/#/c/23727. 
    Frank made a suggestion that it may be a good idea to get agreements from all installer project PTLs before coming to the TSC, but Uli noted that not all installer maybe able to implement the proposal right away.  
  • Goals and vision for Danube: Morgan started an etherpad on the topic, and so far the discussion have taken place at the Test WG and other WGs are encouraged to start/continue the conversation.  There is an action item for the TSC to provide an update to the Board during the December Board meeting.  
  • Colorado + Danube release planning: David McBraide notes that the test milestone for Danube is today plus Colorado 3.0 is release coming up on December 5th and he will be following up with some of the PTLs.  David also discussed the recent survey on OpenStack releases to be used for upcoming OPNFV releases and there is a consensus from the PTLs that Danube should be based on OpenStack-Newton.  Via IRC vote, the TSC agreed that the Danube release will be based on OpenStack-Newton.  David also added that the Daisy team is reporting issues with CI integration so projects dependent on Daisy should plan accordingly.  Scenarios participating in Colorado 3.0 should be reflected in https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/SWREL/Colorado+Scenario+Status.
  • JIRA Federation: Aric noted that there is no documentation on JIRA Federation so it is difficult to make any progress on federation between OPNFV and fd.io.  Aric took an action item to contact Atllassian to make an inquiry on JIRA federation including work scope & costs (if any).
  • There was a discussion on setting up a single recurring meeting in two GoToMeeting accounts and making it easier to make meeting updates on the wiki page (sometime requires making updates in 4 different places).  Ray took an action item to continue the conversation on the mailing list.

  • Board meeting update: Tapio gave an update from the October 28th Board meeting.  The meeting kicked off with an update from the End User Advisory Group before proceeding with the joint TSC-Board meeting.  First a sample project health metrics were discussed, then Bryan Sullivan presented an update from the MANO Working Group.  Tapio led the discussion on the OPNFV Architecture, and there is an action item to discuss goals and vision for the Danube release as a follow-up to the architecture discussion in the December Board meeting.  Chris/Frank discussed collaboration opportunities with other networking projects in the LF (e.g. fd.io, ODL, etc.) and they will be starting conversations with the Boards of other projects to come back to OPNFV with a proposal.  During the Certification & Compliance Committee report out, there was a consensus that there needs to be better alignment with other testing projects.  For the Strategic Planning Committee, a decision was made to dissolve the committee.  Other discussions were on OPNFV values & goals plus membership engagement.  On the OPNFV architecture, there was a good discussion on getting to the next level of detail and how the community can collaborate on this.  Tapio took an action item create a wiki page to start and will make an announcement on the mailing list.
  • Termination review for Resource Scheduler (RS): Mingjiang discussed the original motivation for RS but noted that it has not been active since during the Brahmaputra release.  So far no coding/documentation work has been done and a better home for this project maybe OpenStack.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved terminating the Resource Scheduler project.  
  • Graduation reviews: Ray noted that as OPNFV matures we should turn our attention to graduation reviews for our mature projects like functest and pharos.  All projects in OPNFV today are in an "incubation phase" and some of our projects would seem to qualify for graduation reviews.  The process for the graduation review is outlined in the Project Lifecycle page, and there was a discussion on what it means for a project to be in a "mature" stage.  Ray took an action item to continue this discussion on the mailing list.
  • Colorado + Danube planning and activities: David McBride notes that there was a discussion last week to postpone the Colorado 2.0 release to November 10th.  One of the scenarios planned for 2.0 is dependent on Fuel and the the Fuel team needs more time.  There is also a possibility of including an fd.io scenario with the delay.  There will be no changes to the Colorado 3.0 release.   The TSC acknowledged pushing the Colorado 2.0 release date to November 10th.  For Danube, Milestone 1 was last week and 34 projects have submitted their release plans.  The Movie project team expressed their intent to participate 2 days after the deadline, but the TSC had no objections to this.  There was a quick discussion on intercepting OpenStack-Ocata (scheduled for late Feb'17) by delaying the Danube release.  Ray took an action item to start a discussion on Ocata and the community's interest in OpenStack's Project Teams Gathering (PTG).

  • Colorado + Danube planning and activities: 
    • David noted that at this point we have 2 scenarios for Colorado 2.0 but neither seem to have documentations associated.  In addition, test result for the SFC isn't fully clear (whether it's good or bad) and ONOS scenario doesn't include Yardstick results.  David took an action item to follow-up with PTLs on the status of both scenarios.  There was a consensus to approve Colorado 2.0 release pending follow-up with PTLs by 5pm CET on October 26th and David will update the TSC via email.  
    • There was a discussion on keeping both 2.0 and 3.0 releases for Danube and beyond and the consensus that the overhead is low for maintaining monthly releases.
    • On Danube, David is still awaiting on 8 projects for Milestone 1 documentation.
  • SFQM change in project scope/name: Maryam noted that previously the focus of the SFQM project has been on networking traffic.  One of the starting activities under the new scope is to develop collectd plugins.  The project team has also started planning for the Danube release and the committers for the project will remain the same.  On the new name, there was a consensus for Barometer.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the scope change and Barometer as the new project name.  
  • Discussion on merging existing projects: There was a question on how project teams can propose merging two existing projects (e.g. KVMFORNFV and OVSNFV).  The consensus was that a proposal should be posted the proposal on mailing list for 2 weeks prior to coming to the TSC for approval.  
  • Contribution Guidelines: Morgan noted that an additional section on license & copyright has been added to Contribution Guidelines and comments/feedback on the page are welcome.  
  • MANO WG report out: Bryan reviewed the latest material posted at https://wiki.opnfv.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=6827111

  • Colorado + Danube planning: David McBride noted that Colorado 2.0 is scheduled for next week and so far only 2 out of 6 scenarios for 2.0 are showing up on the Functest dashboard.  For Danube, 40 projects have expressed intent to participate and roughly half of those projects have planning complete for the M1 milestone.  There was a suggestion to review which projects are passing the M1 milestone next week.
  • Mirroring OPNFV repo in Github (read-only): Aric noted that there is a Gerritt plug-in that enables mirroring of OPNFV repo in Github.  Bryan Sullivan suggested including a README file in the Github repo to provide additional context.  There was an agreement to move forward with the read-only OPNFV repo in Github.
  • noha scenario types: Bryan notes that we need a noha scenario for developers and establishing a starting point for engaging with the OPNFV community.  There was also a suggestion that noha scenarios document HW setup where the testing was done.  Jack Morgan took an action item to start a wiki page under Pharos so the community can continue this discussion.

  • Previous minutes approved
  • Board meeting report out: Tapio provided an update from the Board meeting and noted that the C&C report out included the status of the Compliance/Verification Program (CVP) which will be presented to the Board in Barcelona.  There was also a discussion that the CVP and the Dovetail test suites will also be presented to the TSC and there will be no further action from the TSC until after C&C Committee's presentation to the Board.  There was a marketing committee update focused on the Colorado launch and a discussion around OPNFV's potential roles in better collaboration/efficiency across different networking projects in the LF.  
    • There was a good discussion on topics for the joint TSC-Board meeting on October 28th.  Tapio discussed proposed topics such as MANO-related projects, TSC activities & scope, OPNFV architecture, etc.  There was concern that MANO discussion maybe premature, but Heather noted that this was one of the discussion topics that the Board was interested even if there are no concrete accomplishments to-date.  Also, on the architecture, Frank made a suggestion to have further discussion on this during the weekly Technical Community call prior to the Board meeting.  Ray took an action item to summarize the joint TSC-Board topics and send to mailing lists.  
  • Colorado & Danube release planning: David McBride noted that 39 projects have expressed their intent to participate in Danube so far.  Colorado 2.0 is scheduled for October 27th and "daily" stand-up meetings have started.  There was a question on which projects will not be participating in Danube.  David noted that so far only Cperf & Dovetail confirmed they will not be participating in Danube and David took an action item to start a new wiki page on the Danube release. 
  • OPNFV at OpenStack-Barcelona: Ray discussed OPNFV's planned activities at the OpenStack Summit and encouraged community members to contribute updates to the wiki page and volunteer to sign up for the OPNFV booth in the expo hall.

  • Recap from OpenDaylight Summit: On Thursday there was a good discussion on Dovetail & VNF Onboarding during the OPNFV meetup.  There was also a session with the OpenDaylight Community focused on release alignment and testing collaboration between ODL and OPNFV.  
  • Managing private keys in OPNFV: Luke noted that there have been multiple private keys stored in repositories for some projects which is generally not considered a good practice.  Ash added that reasoning for including keys is to facilitate automation, but there may be better ways of achieving automation which the security group will further investigate.  Ash also developed a tutorial to help people onboard activities in a more secure fashion and Ash took the action item to post the tutorial presentation on the Security working group wiki page.  Luke also asked for volunteers from the community to help with this effort and the security team meets weekly on Wednesdays at 14:00 UTC.
  • Danube development and CI/CD process: Fatih discussed the CI evolution and outlined that there have been some additions to the post-merge job as part of the promotion process.  Experiments will be done with Fuel & Apex and Fatih is looking for help with other installers.  There are discussions on-going with testing teams about using a similar framework and Morgan noted benefits of test promotion as a tool to facilitate onboarding test cases into test frameworks.  
  • OPNFV October Board meeting: Chris shared his presentation for the Board meeting and topics to be covered are Colorado/Danube releases, updates from the ODL Summit, and joint Board-TSC meeting in Barcelona.
  • Colorado + Danube planning and activities

  • Colorado launch: Heather discussed Colorado launch assets (e.g. landing page, press release, blogs, social media) in addition to press briefings.  Heather noted that coverage has been positive and congratulated the technical community for an on-time release.
  • Technical Community Elections: Ray noted that the Committer Board election has kicked off and will close at 5pm on Friday (September 30th).  TSC Chair nomination period will also close on Friday.
  • IETF 97 in Seoul, Korea: Heather outlines that we are interested in participating in the IETF Hackathon to bring topics that we want to develop in OPNFV that we could collaborate with the IETF community.  For the Hackathon, we'd need volunteers from the community to facilitate the development of the topic and to run the Hackathon on site at the IETF event.  Some of the potential topics could be SFC, IPv6, BGP & VPN, FD.io and VPP, vsperf and security.  Frank added that the focus of the Hackathon should be on producing demonstrable code in ~24 hours.  Ray took an action item to start a page for IETF97 planning.
  • Colorado & Danube planning and activities: 
    • David McBride noted that Colorado 2.0 release date is October 27th with Colorado 3.0 schedule set for December 5th.  Tapio noted that the Colorado 3.0 date actually falls during the week of the Plugfest, and there will be a further discussion on Colorado 3.0 in the release meeting.  
    • For Danube, the proposal is to open the call for participation for Danube and leave it open for about a month to give community members an opportunity to join (incl. those not familiar with OPNFV release process).  So new project proposals will need to be approved and then declare an intent to participate in the next month.  In addition for Danube, the stable branch window will be about 6 weeks.  Via IRC vote, the TSC agreed to start the Danube release process with proposed milestones and a planned release date of March 27th.
  • Joint Board-TSC meeting on October 28th: Chris reminded the TSC members about the joint meeting with the Board during the OpenStack Summit.  Chris will begin soliciting topics for the meeting.
  • Meetup at the ODL Summit: Ray noted that OPNFV members are invited to join the ODL Community in the main Developer Design Forum room for an hour long discussion on Carbon/Danube planning at 9:30am on Thursday.
  • External repositories: There was a discussion on creating a read-only OPNFV repo in Github as the Github interface is more user friendly and well known.  Ray took an action item to create a wiki page for external repo questions/concerns.

  • Technical community elections : A reminder that nomination periods are open both for the Commiter Board & TSC Chair election
  • JIRA Federation: Frank explained the benefits of being able to relate to upstream communities using JIRA Federation as you'd be able to relate to and link across issues in OPNFV and upstream projects.  The TSC agreed to start a trial between OPNFV and fd.io an Frank will report back to the TSC on the status.
  • Non-Apache-2.0 license for the Moon project: Ruan described his work in the Moon project where they use identity federation across OpenDaylight and OpenStack.  The Moon team developed some ODL code under EPL 1.0 license (5 new files & 5 modified files) that is under review, but they have not been merged in ODL yet.  The Moon team is requesting to have Non-Apache-2.0 codes in the OPNFV repository until they get accepted upstream.   The OPNFV Legal Committee will also be reviewing the request from the Moon project.  The TSC has no objections to the proposal from the Moon project team.
  • Colorado planning and activities: David noted that there are 24-28 scenarios that have indicated their intention to release for Colorado 1.0.  Morgan added on test results chart, scenarios with scores above 80% are likely to be stable but there could be documented limitations.  Sofia also noted that on documentation front there are still some inconsistencies and missing documents.  There was a good discussion on release readiness based on documentation issues.  Ray took an action item to setup a 30 minute TSC call at 7am Pacific Time on September 21st.  
  • OPEN-O Developer's Event on September 26th (Bellevue, WA): Marc discussed the Open-O developer event next Monday between 16:30 - 18:30 right across the street from the OpenDaylight Summit and encouraged participation from the OPNFV community.

  • Update from the September OPNFV Board meeting: Chris noted that the technical community budget for Q4'2016 has been approved and the next TSC chair will have a chance on developing the budget for the new fiscal year in 2017.  Ray also has an action item to come back to the TSC to give an update on the Q4 budget.
  • Meetup at the OpenDaylight Summit: Ray encourage community members attending the ODL Summit to list their names on the Thursday meetup planning page.  It'd also be good to identify ODL community members we want to invite for the Carbon release discussion (9am) and topics for the open time slot at 11am-noon.  
  • Colorado planning and activities: 
    • David McBride first discussed the Danube release milestones.  David noted that JIRA gating will be used for Danube, and there is also on-going discussion around stable branch window.  
    • For the Colorado release, 14 scenarios are now release ready and further 10 scenarios are approaching stability.
    • There was a discussion on different artifacts for ARM vs. x86 architecture and consensus that ARM will have its own ISOs so their artifacts will need to be accommodated accordingly.  
  • Project health metrics: There was a good discussion on the metrics including the purpose.  There were comments that metrics can help evaluate projects activities and identify outliers or ones that need community's help.  The metrics would also be a good input in the context of project lifecycle assessment.  
  • External repo's: Ray noted that an agenda item for an extended discussion on licensing is planned for future Technical Community call in early/mid October.  There was a good discussion that a "non-governed" repos should be allowed as a short-term solution for example for upstream forks.  There may need to be a distinction between different types of external repos (e.g. ones that are closely reviewed for licensing info. vs. ones that are more informal).  There was a question if it'd make sense to have a separate "folder" for upstream codes in OPNFV and Ray noted that a proposal is forthcoming with some of the OPNFV projects that have upstream forks.  
  • Mailing list discussions: Ray discussed proposals for new mailing lists as opnfv-tech-discuss is getting too congested.  Bryan Sullivan asked for a clarification on upstream mailing lists and Ray noted that this is to facilitate discussions with upstream communities (e.g. OpenStack, OpenDaylight, etc.) without requiring upstream community members to subscribe to OPNFV mailing lists.  The TSC agreed to the creation of new mailing lists for working groups and upstream communities.

  • License scan update: Scott Nicholas gave an update on the latest license scan.  PTLs have been contacted if there were questions, and a quick response/action would be appreciated.  Scott also noted that there's a room for improvement in including license information at the file-level (vs. directory-level) and license files should have a .txt extension.  
  • Confluence/wiki tracking on Bitergia: Ray noted that wiki contribution tracking is something that has been discussed in the community and Bitergia has now added support for Confluence.  There is an opportunity to add Confluence/wiki tracking on Bitergia's OPNFV dashboard for $3k, and there is a room in the current budget to pay for this.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved $3k spending for adding wiki tracking from Bitergia.
  • September OPNFV Board meeting: Chris shared his draft presentation and he will be going over Colorado update, D-release planning, community elections, and other community updates during the Board meeting.
  • Technical community elections
    • Committer Board (Announcement: Sep. 6/Nomination Sep 13 - 23/Election Sep 26 - 30/Result: Oct. 3)

  • OPNFV Intern program update: Ray shared learnings from 5 interns in OPNFV this year.  There was a discussion on the part-time internship option and the consensus was to keep this option along with a traditional full-time internship.  
  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride noted that Colorado 1.0 release date of September 22nd is fast approaching.  The Functest dashboard shows a small number of "green" scenarios plus the scenario wiki page is showing 6 or 7 scenarios that are not yet ready.  Frank added that for many of the scenarios, the failure may actually be due to one test case.
  • Harmonized configuration for OPNFV: Carlos notes that the doctor project requires certain platform configurations to function.  However, the project team found that this was not possible across all installers for Colorado.  There is a need for a common set of behaviors that allow features to be deployed on all scenarios.  Julien asked if Genesis should be a vehicle to achieve common configurations across installers.  Frank noted that there was limited participation in genesis to harmonize these items and thus stood down from the Colorado release.  Jack Morgan added that the Infra WG has been looking at this from the physical infrastructure perspective that can lead to alignment on installers.  Jack took an action item to work on this topic.

  • Toronto Hackfest report out: Chris reported activities from Q3 Hackfest discussions including Coloraro milestone review, mailing list proposals, Dovetail update, etc.  Most discussions are captured in the wiki or on mailing lists.
  • Plugfest update: Lincoln reported that four companies are registered for the Plugfest so far and planning/preparation are being done on the Plugfest wiki.  Ray added that plan is to organize a number of "tracks" during the Plugfest and the (co-located) Hackfest could be one of the tracks.  Everyone participating in the Plugfest (incl. Hackfest) will be required to accept the Rules of Engagement during registration.   Ray asked if there are any concerns with co-locating the Hackfest with the Plugfest and no concerns were raised.  
  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride noted that deployment figures have not changed significantly in the past week (around 50% are deploying successfully and some scenarios remain inactive).  In addition, a large number of scenarios are not passing all test cases.  Also, there are a large number of Colorado 1.0 issues that may not be resolved in time and these require PTL's attention.  Frank made a suggestion to develop a features/scenarios increment report for Colorado (vs. Brahmaputra) and David took an action item to work on this.  
  • D-release activities: D-release naming activities have kicked off and the voting will start on September 5th.  David gave an overview of a proposal for the D-release schedule, and the projected release date would be March 27, 2017 (https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/SWREL/D-Release)

  • CII badging update: Sona discussed that OPNFV community has achieved the CII security badge, but work should continue to improve the security in OPNFV.  Luke noted that the security team plans to work with each of the projects to do a security audit of individual projects and provide recommendations for improvement.  Luke asks projects to read the security audit planning etherpad and provide feedback.  There was also discussion on adding "security audit" as one of the release milestones.
  • Project health metrics: There was an action item from the TSC meeting on June 28th to work on establishing metrics for projects to help identify active or struggling projects in OPNFV.  The intention is to develop metrics to help measure projects' activities so that we can identify projects that may need help from the community plus highlight projects that are working well.  Ray has an action item to start a wiki page on project health.   
  • Project lifecycle review and process development: After Colorado, there will be a number of projects that would have participated in multiple OPNFV releases and there is a need to start a discussion on criteria for projects to go beyond incubation.  Dave Neary asked the purpose of a graduation review and if projects have been held back by being in the incubation stage.  Uli and Prakash also noted that we should also consider different criteria for different types of projects for these reviews.  Chris Price noted that a purpose of graduation reviews would be for a community recognition of projects that are doing well, and also communicating project's maturity outside of OPNFV.  
  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride noted that the stable branch creation milestone has been accomplished for Colorado.  The  infra team is creating Jenkins jobs for Colorado branch and there will be patches pending on gerrit.  David added that the next milestone is test completion in mid-September and that Jira cleanup needs to be done prior to the release.  David McBride has the action item to establish Colorado 2.0 and 3.0 milestones plus start the D-release planning activites.  
  • AoB:
    • Next meet-up will be at the ODL Summit in September and there will be a session on Thursday morning with the ODL community to discuss the ODL Carbon release.

  • OPNFV Board meeting recap: Chris Price noted that there was a discussion with the Board on the reporting status for Colorado release and the Board approved the proposal to add 5 Committers-at-Large TSC members.  Also, Board resolutions affecting OPNFV Bylaws will be published going forward. The title of the President for the OPNFV Board will be changed to the Vice Chairperson.  
  • Committer-at-Large elections to the TSC: There was a discussion on dealing with more than 2 individuals being elected from same member organizations and alternates.  The TSC agreed that it is up to individual organizations to decide which two individuals are represented in the TSC.  For alternates, the TSC does not want to enforce who can be alternates but in cases when there are more than two members from the same organization, only two of the votes will count.  The TSC also agreed that the election result is valid for that election only and can not be used to fill vacancies in the future (e.g. when someone steps down).  Chris Price took an action item to update the elections wiki page.  Ray also reminded everyone of the Friday deadline for nominations.
  • TSC meeting schedule: The TSC agreed to postpone this discussion until after the new Committer-at-Large TSC members are elected.
  • Colorado planning and activities: David gave a reminder that the documentation milestone is on August 15th.  For stable branch, there will be a window that will last a week starting with Milestone 9.  David also noted that some projects are forking upstream code, but did not know how to contribute back upstream and is help PTLs work with upstream communities.  
  • Opera project creation review: Opera will initially focus on the integration of Open-O NFVO, a VNFM based on Juju, and an OpenStack based VIM. TOSCA and HEAT will be the primary target interface models.  The project team will start with a vCPE use case for its work and the plan is to participate in the OPNFV D-release.  The project team still needs to investigate which scenarios would be used and how they would interact with installer projects.  Via IRC vote, TSC approved project creation for Opera.

  • OPNFV Board meeting topics: During the Board meeting on Augst 4th, Chris will discuss Colorado update, Committer-at-Large election, and Community Events.  If there are any feedback on the presentation material, please let Chris know prior to the meeting.  
    • For future TSC meetings after the Committer-at-Large election, Brian Skerry asked what the new quorum count will be and if Community TSC members can name alternates.  Brian took the action item to start a discussion on TSC alternates on mailing lists.  Another item that needs clarification is how to limit TSC seats to 2 per member organization when more than 2 are elected, and Chris took the action item to clarify this  on the wiki page.    
  • October-January budget amendment and activities: Ray noted that the OPNFV fiscal calendar will be shifting to January - December in 2017 and there will be a "transitional budget" for October - December'2016.  For IT, there will be additional spending for new staff and switches for newly donated hardware.  
  • Committer Promotions: There was a discussion of allowing gerritt reviews to be used for committer promotions (in addition to email votes).  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the use of gerrit for committer promotion as described on the Committer Promotions wiki page.
  • Colorado planning and activities: 
    • David McBride noted that project reporting has improvevd significantly since last week.  Also, the the Scenario table in the wiki page is sortable by different columns.  
    • Uli explained that the steps to Colorado release will be the same as for Brahmaputra and that he has updated the process and described it for Colorado miletsones.  There was a good discussion if every project needs to follow the stable branch handling at the next milestone.  David McBride took the action item to follow-up on this discussion to understand any impact on the release schedule or if would be possible to allow exceptions.

  • Joint discussions with the OpenDaylight Community at the ODL Design Summit - Ray Paik

Minutes

  • Previous minutes approved
  • CII Badging update for OPNFV: Sona provided an update on the CII badging activities and one remaining issue is using MD5 as was found in releng.  Work is on-going to resolve this and Aric owns the JIRA ticket for this issue.  Sona noted that instead of MD5, sha2 could be a better option.  Sona and David McBride took the action item to resolve issues with MD5 based cryptographic algorithms in Colorado time frame
  • Community TSC member election: Chris reviewed the election process as captured in the wiki.  Ray added that the list of committers as of August 1st will be used for the election.  Via IRC vote the TSC approved the election process as outlined in Community Election Procedure#CommunityTSCmemberelection(proposalpendingapproval)
  • Colorado planning and activities: David presented his analysis of risk levels of projects participating in Colorado.  David noted that some projects are not reporting their status to the wiki page, and projects that are either missing milestones or reporting put themselves in a high risk category.  David added that JIRA ticket handling (e.g. closing tickets, using common versions and tags, etc.) is also an issue for many projects.  For scenarios, reporting has also been lacking on the scenario status wiki page.  For high risk projects, David has already been in communication with the PTLs.  Gerald asked what would be the next steps if projects are not able to recover their status, and David responded that when the situation is clear for high risk projects he will come back to the TSC to ask for a decision as to the projects remaining in Colorado if necessary.  
  • Discussion around adoption of Phase 1 of CI evolution for Colorado: Tim Rozet noted that he's concerned about the Jenkins job structure change in Phase I that may have an impact on the Colorado release.  In addition, Apex has a different job structure vs. other installer projects.  After some discussion, there was a consensus that the TSC does not object to allowing Apex to defer alignment of job structures as long as we secure that the we can achieve phases 3 and 4 of the CI evolution in the D release.
  • Joint discussions with the OpenDaylight Community at the ODL Design Summit: Ray noted that the OpenDaylight Community proposed having a session during their September Design Summit (on Thursday) to discuss the ODL Carbon release and needs from OPNFV.  At a nominal cost, OPNFV will be able to get a meeting space to meet with the ODL community.  Ray will setup a planning wiki page with logistical information.

  • Alternating time slots for TSC meetings: Feedback from community members in Asia is that the current TSC meeting time is inconvenient for many people in the region (e.g. 10pm in China, 11pm in Japan, etc.).  Suggestions were made to continue the discussion on the mailing list or create a poll if needed.
  • GoToMeeting accounts for project team meetings: Ray provided an update on the 2nd GoToMeeting account that was created in May.  Ray took an action item to re-send the announcement email from May to opnfv-tech-discuss.
  • Q3 Hackfest: Ray noted that the Hackfest registration page is up and encouraged community members to add breakout topics on the Planning pageThere was a discussion on organizing a joint breakout session with Dovetail and C&C members at the Hackfest.  
  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride discussed the test implementation milestone on July 15th and noted that 24 projects have not reported for milestone 7 yet (Releases Colorado Projects).  David took the action item to update the overall reporting pages by next week and will be following up with the PTLs.

Minutes

  • Previous minutes from June 28th & July 5th approved
  • SPC Working Group:  
    • Ulrich Kleber shared his presentation on the Polestar working group proposal.  The working group's goal is to help get alignment on OPNFV community wide vision and calls for cross-project participation.  There was a discussion if the working group membership is open (like other working groups in the technical community) and that it'd be preferable to have more participation from non-Platinum member organizations.
    • OpenStack Operators Telecom/NFV Working Group: Uli notes that this new group meets bi-weekly on IRC on Wednesdays at 8am Pacific Time and encourages OPNFV community members participation.  Uli also added a reminder that there are 2 days remaining for submitting session proposals for OpenStack Summit in Barcelona.  
  • Abandoning old patch sets in Gerrit: Aric Gardner noted that there is a request to remove a patch set if it is not touched for 6 months.  The patch will go into an "abandoned" state.  The TSC agreed to move patches that have not been updated for more than 6 months into "abandoned" state. 
  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride reminded everyone that the test implementation milestone (M7) is this Friday (15th) and this reflects moving out the milestone a week.  David noted that he does not expect this to have an impact on the overall release schedule.  TSC agreed to pushing out the M7 milestone by a week.  David also gave an assessment of "yellow" for the release as not all projects are completely aware of the release milestone/schedule.  
  • Q3 Hackfest: Ray Paik noted that the next Hackfest will be at a venue close to the LinuxCon-North America and encouraged community members to post breakout session proposals the Planning page.  More details will be sent out as soon as venue, registration details, etc. are finalized.  
  • Project creation review: Luke Hinds noted that the security scanning functionality is already part of Functest as of 3-4 weeks ago.  Also, the latest version of the OpenSCAP will be used in the project.  The project will continue to be embedded in Functest, but will now have a separate repository.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved creation of the Security Scanning project.

Agenda

Minutes

  • Approval of previous meeting's minutes deferred until Ray returns.
  • Gerald Kunzmann requested that the topic of the Feature Freeze milestone (July 1) be added to the agenda.  Christopher Price requested that this topic be deferred to the Release Planning meeting in the next hour.
  • Fatih Degirmenci described the proposal for the evolution of OPNFV CI
    • Details here.
    • Motivation for change is stability of current system and the time to debug.
    • Using a tiered approach would likely reduce the time it takes to isolate a bug.
    • Validating scenarios in a virtual environment before testing on bare metal would help to preserve resources.
    • Some concern was raised about the timing of the changes.  We need to avoid impacting Colorado, so most changes should wait until the D-release cycle.
    • Proposal to implement changes in two phases: (1) low impact changes during Colorado release cycle; (2) higher impact changes early in D-release cycle.
  • Committer at Large (CAL)
    • Gerald Kunzmann suggested that we need to document a common definition of this term
    • The plan is to restrict nominees to existing committers.  Dave Neary raised a concern about this.
    • Who should vote?  Dave Neary suggested that voters should include, at a minimum, all committers.
    • How many? 
      • Jack Morgan suggested this should be a percentage of elected members.
      • Frank Brockners proposed 5 members and that this number should be reviewed annually.
    • Voted on "Does the TSC agree to include 5 committer TSC seats for the 2016/2017 term?"  Approved.
    • Voted on "Does the TSC agree to start the committer election process on the 8th of August?"  Approved
  • Colorado Release
    • David McBride reminded the team that the Feature Freeze milestone was Friday, July 1.  In addition, the Test Case Implementation and Scenario Integration milestones are this week.
    • David McBride told the team that three projects that had previously expressed intent to participate in the Colorado release have voluntarily withdrawn from the release:
      • Escalator
      • Resource Scheduler
      • Policy Test
      • Escalator will likely participate in a future release; however, the other two projects will probably not.
      • David McBride also said that there seems to be no process for projects to withdraw.  These projects were identified by David based on discussions with the PTLs.
  • Ran out of time to discuss the SPC working group and the QTIP project.

  • OPNFV Plugfest and ETSI Plugtest follow-up: Pierre noted that ETSI plans to list OPNFV as a "Supporting Open Source Project" for the ETSi Plugtest.  OPNFV member organizations that are also members of ETSI can bring OPNFV Platform to the Plugtest.  It was also determined that a co-located event between OPNFV and ETIS will not be possble this time.
  • OPNFV Board Meeting report out
    • SPC Working Group: SPC (Strategic Planning Committee) is a board committee and wants to reach out to the wider technical community via a Working Group.  Uli noted that there was a meeting during the Design Summit and will be sending a note to mailing lists to solicit others who are also interested in participating in the Working Group.  
    • TSC structure and technical governance: Chris Price mentioned that he presented the same set of slides from the last TSC meeting to the Board, and the feebdack from the Board was to execute on "Committer-at-large" elections for the TSC as noted in the TSC Charter.  
    • Infrastructure Working Group: The request was made to the Board to add 2 Full-time people at the LF (release engineer & system administrator) to improve support for the OPNFV community.  This will allow the Infra WG community members to focus on improvements (vs. daily upkeep).
  • Project structure, scope and coordination discussion: There are a number of projects that have not been active or staffed by a single company and has not been able to attract new contributors.  There was a good discussion on different metrics to determine the health/status of projects.  Brian Skerry and Tapio agreed to meet after their vacations to continue evaluating this topic.  
  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride provided an update from meetings with project teams during the Design Summit.  David also noted that the feature freeze milestone on July 1st will provide clarity on which projects are demonstranting the ability to be part of the Colorado release.

    • Q3 Hackfest: The next OPNFV Plugfest will take place during the week of December 5th, and Ray proposed having a Q3 Hackfest at LinuxCon NA (Toronto) and a meet-up at OpenDaylight Summit (Seattle).  The TSC agreed to holding the Q3 Hackfest co-locate with LinuxCon.
  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride has been working with the infrastructure team at the Design Summit to work through release activities.  In general, the infrastructure is looking good for Colorado, but a pod for ARM will be added to support ArmBand activities. 
  • MANO Working Group: Chris Price noted that the MANO working group could be looking at things like common interfaces and work on cross coordination. There was a discussion if a charter is required for the Working Group, but existing Working Groups in OPNFV (e.g. security, infrastructure, testing) do not have charters that were approved by the TSC.  The TSC agreed that the establishment of the MANO Working Groups would be a good idea.  Prakash will come to the Technical Community meetings for further discussions.
  • Joint Board-TSC meeting
    • David McBride prepared slides for the C&D releases and will send out to mailing list for feedback.  Uli is working on the SPC interaction presentation and noted that the SPC is interested in forming a working group to address long term planning and community themes
    • TSC governance: Chris Price suggested that options for the TSC composition includes maintaining the current setup (with committers at large); phased migration to an elected TSC; migrate to a fully merit-based TSC.  There was a discussion on potential tradeoffs when Platinum members do not automatically get a TSC seat, concerns about the TSC size (e.g. for achieving quorum), ensuring non-Platinum member classes are represented, etc.

  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride discussed triage process for JIRA issues and there will be a breakout session to discusss this topic during the Design Summit.  The latest release schedule and milestones were also discussed and these are available at https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/SWREL/Colorado. Frank noted that there are no separate feature freeze dates for 2.0 and 3.0 releases. There was a question on documentation completion date and David responded at the date is aligned with the stable branch creation.   Frank also made a suggestion to add a note that test results will not be part of the documentation completion in mid-August.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the OPNFV Colorado schedule.  
  • Project creation review: Zhijiang discussed key highlights of Daisy4NFV such as multicacst, automatic deployment, containerized OpenStack services, configration template, etc.  One of the concerns expressed is that a new installer will add new scenarios, and add strain to CI and testing teams. Zhijiang sees this as a flaw in the scenario process which we should address. There is also a plan to add a new CI pod at ZTE for testing.  There was a good discussion on the need to investigate resource issues on scale testing and requirements for OPNFV test project teams.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the project creation for Daisy4NFV.

  • ETSI Plugtest plan: Pierre Lynch provided an update on plans for the ETSI Plugtest.  The Plugtest will focus on interoperability over standard interfaces, and the HIVE tools will be used for remote testing.  Test case proposals need to be submitted to ETSI for approval prior to the event.  ETSI team would like OPNFV to participate in the Plugtest and potentially coordinate with OPNFV Plugfest.  The first ETSI Plugtest will likely be in January'17 and the planned frequency is still TBD.  Chris Price noted that one possibility out of the 2nd OPNFV Plugfest is to identify scenarios that OPNFV can bring to the ETSI Plugtest.  Ray took an action item to call for volunteers from the technical community to have discussions with ETSI Plugtest team (likely in conjunction with the OPNFV C&C Committee).  
  • Joint Board-TSC meeting in Berlin: Chris Price discussed topics for the joint Board-TSC meeting and asked for volunteers to lead some of the topics in the meeting.  Uli volunteered to take the lead on SPC engagement, Fatih volunteered for the Infrastructure WG readou, and Ray will work with Dave Neary on the Bitergia roadmap.
  • Design Summit update:  Ray noted that selected Design Summit sessions are now listed at Berlin Design Summit.  Ray also mentioned that he will be working with community members to create a single table that shows the schedule of all lecture-style sessions plus breakouts.  
  • Colorado planning and activities:  David McBride noted that he completed his action item of establishing a clear stable branch date (August 15, 2016).  Rather than voting on the Colorado release plan during the meeting, Chris Price took an action item to write a concise vote text on the Colorado plan and execute the vote via e-mail this week.
  • Project creation review: Zhijiang Hu presented the proposal for Daisy Nfv, and noted that Daisy4nfv introduces Kolla to speed up deployment and atomic upgrades.  The plan is to be ready by the D-release.  Number of people commented that there are a lot of similarities with other installer projects and there maybe opportunities for collaboration.  Chris Price also noted that he intends to raise the question of infrastructure usage for installer projects as a topic for consideration on this week's Infra WG call.  The review for the Daisy4nfv project will resume in the weekly Technical Discussions call and/or the next TSC meeting.

  • OPNFV Code of Conduct: Ray described a proposed 1-sentence update to the Section 1 of the TSC Charter to reflect the community Code of Conduct.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the Code of Conduct and propose the identified changes to the TSC Charter.  Ray has the action item to review the changes with the OPNFV Legal Committee prior to presenting it to the Board.  
  • Colorado planning and activities: The PTLs reached a consensus on a code freeze date of August 15th (with a proposed release date of September 22nd).  Frank noted that OpenDaylight-Boron will not code freeze by August 15th and this may have impact on a number of scenarios.  David McBride took the action item to update the project release diagram with the code freeze date and definition.  
  • SFC project scope adjustment: Brady notes that the scope change is to add VNF manager and in future releases MANO-based orchestrator.  There were a number of questions on Tacker, and Brady noted that the plan is to use Tacker for Colorado as VNF manager (but not to develop/test Tacker).  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the scope change for the SFC project.
  • VNF Event Stream creation review: Alok/Bin discussed the project proposal.  The scope includes a common event data model, platform support for generating the event stream, development of an event collector (for MANO components) to consume the event stream.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved project creation.

  • Berlin Design Summit Update: Ray noted that a 3rd room has been added for the Design Summit.  One room will be reserved for plenary sessions and presentations while the other two will be used for project team breakouts/hack sessions.   People can plan breakout sessions at [ARCHIVED] Berlin Design Summit Project Breakouts and Hacking.  
  • Colorado planning and activities: David discussed that the community is approaching consensus on the relese and a community survey for key points will resolve toward a final schedule.
  • Review of OPNFV Support models: There was a good discussion on current support tools (e.g. AskBot & opnfv-users mailing list).  Aric suggested another possible tool from Atlassian https://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/questions.  
  • Options for the OPNFV Plugfest: There was a good discussion on possible Plugfest dates considering a packed events schedule in Q4'2016.  Trevor noted that logistical requirements/efforts for Plugfest hardware should not be underestimated.  Ray will start an email discussion this week and propose ideas on Plugfest/Hackfest in 2H'2016.

  • 3rd party Open Source Software dependencies: Ray shared the wiki page (Licensing in OPNFV) that has details on the process for obtaining OPNFV Board approval for non-Apache v2 licenses if this is necessary.  Scott outlines that the best way for the OPNFV to upstream code to source projects is via contributions to those projects' repositories directly.  The LF team periodically performs license scans but if community members want to ask/raise issues ahead of time, please contact Ray or Scott Nicholas
  • May OPNFV Board meeting: Chris reminded everyone that this is the last board meeting before the joint Board-TSC meeting in Berlin.  Chris also reviewed his slides on TSC Governance based on community feedback and noted that there is a perception that the OPNFV TSC is "pay-to-play".  Chris also added that his preference is for project teams to be consensus-driven with a minimal guidance from the TSC. 
  • Committer removals: Maryam mentioned that the inactive committers have not submitted any patches or attended any meetings in the past 6 months. Via IRC vote, the TSC approved removing committer rights for chenjinzhou@huawei.com, randy.wang@huawei.com, challa@noironetworks.com, tgraf@noironetworks.com from the VSPERF project.  
  • Annual Awards: Ray outlined the process for 2016 Annual Awards.  A suggestion was made to name the Award after Margaret Chiosi (our previous Board President).

OPNFV member and Summit sponsor organizations have discount codes that can be used for registration.   Design Summit will take place on June 20th & 21st an email on Design Summit proposals can be found at http://lists.opnfv.org/pipermail/opnfv-tech-discuss/2016-May/010389.html. There will also be a 1/2-day "orientation session" on Sunday (June 19th) that will be free of charge.  Project Track/Project Theater is planned during the Summit, and Ray will be sending an email update out to PTLs.  
  • Developer Collaboration budget: The technical community is trending well in terms of the budget.  However, Ray/Heather noted that the community could be spending more on interns and encouraged adding more internship project proposals at Intern-projects-page
  • Plugfest report out: Ray noted that the Plugfest is off to a good start with good representation from install and test projects.  The goal is to publish a whitepaper to summarize the learnings after the Plugfest.  Ray will also post a daily summary of activities at Plugfest (Brahmaputra)#OPNFVPlugfestreport
  • OPNFV Working Groups: Chris Price noted that the Infra Working Group had the first meeting last week.  There has been questions on if decisions can be made in Working Groups, and Chris encouraged decision making within working groups but TSC can help if any guidance is needed.  Dave Neary added that communication across stakeholders is needed when projects make decisions that affect other projects.  Fatih reminded everyone that the Infra Working group is an open group and others are welcome to join.  There was a general consensus that  working group for Infra & Testing seem to be working well and maybe a good way to utilize community’s time.  
  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride mentioed that the focus of the weekly release meeting should be on reporting and coordination.  Also, milestone definitions is approaching a steady state for Colorado and release projects in general.
  • AoB: Bryan Sullivan mentioned that the OpenDaylight Summit CFP has closed and asked for OPNFV's plans at the ODL Summit in September.  Ray added that OPNFV is a Silver sponsor at the ODL Summit and it maybe worth organizing a me/hackfest.   Ray/Chris Price took an action item to update the events page on the wiki.

  • Highlights from the OpenStack Summit: Chris Price noted that there was a meeting with the OpenStack infra team on Friday and is trying to make connections with the OPNFV infrastructure team to start collaboration.  Uli/Bryan noted that there is definitely good synergy between & relationship between the two communities.  Ildiko also noted that many OpenStack members came to OPNFV sessions to learn how to collaborate with OPNFV.   Dave Neary shared feedback from OpenStack that OPNFV should approach them with a problem and collaborate with them on a solution (vs. telling them what to do).  
  • Design Summit Update: Ray Paik encourgaged community members to post session proposals at Design Summit session proposals page by May 27th.  Ray also took the action item to send a mail to mailing lists for a "call for volunteers" to help with Design Summit planning.  During the main Summit, there will also be a "Project Track" so that project teams can present an overview/update on their projects.
  • OPNFV Technical Governance Discussion: In addition to discussions on mailing lists, people can send private feedback to community-feedback@opnfv.org if anyone is uncomfortable with doing it in public mailing lists.
  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride noted that the project team is continuing to work on the details of the milestones for Colorado and people can participate in detailed discussions during the weekly release meeting (following the TSC call).
  • Colorado infrastrucuture cross project initiatives: There was a discussion on starting a wiki page to document these infrastructure-related initiatives.  Chris Price took an action item to reach out to the infra-related teams to help establish a common wiki page.  Ray also suggested that interns may be a good resource for these initiatives.

  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride notes that an email was just sent with updates on projects participating in Colorado release.  Milestone refinement is on-going and there was also good discussions on the schedule at OpenStack Summit.  Chris Price added that it'd be good to have a discussion on improving Documentation for the Colorado release and this could be discussed in other meetings (e.g. Thursday's Technical Community call).  
  • Brahmaputra 3.0 update: Chris Price mentioned that scenarios counts are expected to increase for 3.0 and the labeling should be completed by Thursday (28th).  
  • OSCAR project termination review: Stuart notes that announcement on project termination was sent out 2 weeks ago and no work has been done for OSCAR since project creation.  There's also no impact on any other OPNFV projects.  The TSC approved project termination via IRC vote.
  • Code of Conduct: Ray discussed the current draft of the Code of Conduct (CoC) on the wiki.  Dave Neary asked what happens when there is a poor behavior and what the recourse is.  There was a discussion of having people from the LF plus select members of the community helping with resolutions.  Mike Dolan added that LF typically has a 4-step process, starting with talking to the community members in question, then (if issues are not addressed) with their management, finally in the community, and step 4 is exclusion.  Getting to step 4 is very unusual and indicates a serious problem.  Dave Neary, Chris Price, Ray, Ash, Uli, Jonas Bjurel, and Ildiko volunteered to finalize the Code of Conduct for review at a future TSC call.
  • Design Summit planning: Ray discussed the outline for Design Summit in Berlin.  Chris Price asked if it would make sense to also have project team meetings/hacking on Day 1 plus move some of the presentation sessions to Day 2 so there's a consistent format over both days.  Ray will start a wiki/etherpad page so that people can propose Design Summit sessions.  Dave Neary made a comment that it'd be better to have more interactive sessions (vs. one way presentations).  There will likely be call for volunteers to help review session proposals on the wiki/etherpad.  
  • AoB: Sofia outlines that the Docs team is working on documentation template for Colorado and is looking for community feedback.  Uli made a suggestion that documents should be structured to address the user and the project structure we have today may not be best serving our consumers.

    • Chris Price summarized the Board meeting discussions from April 14th.  
    • Next, Prodip gave an update on Board discussion around technical governance and areas for improvement.  Prodip discussed uniqueness of OPNFV and areas where OPNFV can take a leadership role across NFV.  There is also a desire to have a merit-based approach in OPNFV to reward and promote those who are contributing strongly to the technical community.  Prodip asked for feedback from the TSC and community on the topics/feedback presented in the slides and how we can improve our technical structure and governance.  A question was raised how feedback was gathered to-date, and Prodip noted that these were independent feedback and thus the desire to reach out to the sider community.  On NFV industry leadership, Prodip noted that such leadership is desired to broker architectural discussions within OPNFV (e.g. on MANO, Forwarding, etc.).  On the merit-based TSC, there was a discussion that many open source communities have elected committees and this may also be a good way to attract more developers.  Bryan made a suggestion that any move to a new structure needs to have a clear plan and done methodically. The topic will be re-visited in future TSC calls.  
  • Brahmaputra 3.0 update: Chris Price noted that 3.0 is on track for labeling at the end of this month.  A question was raised if another dot release is planned for May, and Chris noted that it looks like most scenarios will make the 3.0 release but can have another conversation next week.
  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride mentioned that the community wants to have more granular milestones that better capture the development flow toward the release.  Also, the community has agreed to roll the scenario and release planning project discussions back into the weekly release meetings and scenarios/scenario owners are being captured on the wiki (https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/SWREL/Colorado+scenario+inventory+and+dependencies).  David also noted that we are behind on some of our early milestones but catching up and bringing our activities into alignment for Colorado.  David also mentioned that he is close to producing an updated schedule for Colorado.  
    • There was also a board discussion on release cadence/interval as there has been a lot of stress in the community to meet the 6-month cadence.  Brian Skerry added that the cadence in his view is not the issue, our processes and activities should be evaluated to limit the effort of addressing the release activity. Dave Neary noted that the value of the OPNFV community is not in the releases that we produce.  Margaret encouraged the technical community to provide feedback/recommendation to the Board on release cadence.  Chris Price took the action item to start a discussion on the mailing regarding release cadence and Dave Neary has the action item to start a mailing list discussion on whether OPNFV should continue to do releases.  
  • Upcoming events and planning: Ray mentioned that the Events wiki page will be further updated shortly, and some of the key upcoming events are OpenStack-Austin, OPNFV Plugfest, OPNFV Summit (plus the Design Summit).  The Design Summit planning will start next week and looking for volunteers to help with programming.  
  • Community metrics: Dave Neary discussed that the metrics should be driven by desired goals and outcomes of the community.  There is also interest from  OpenStack to capture NFV metrics.  Dave took an action item to investigate if a meeting could be setup with OpenStack community next week in Austin.

  • Wiki post-mortem: There has not been a lot of feedback on the wiki migration on the wiki page and people thought more feedback would be helpful.  Dave Neary suggested having a call to discuss feedback and took an action item to setup a call.
  • Colorado planning and activities: David McBride reports that Milestone 2 passed on April 8th and about 20-30% of projects are reporting "red" for Colorado.  Colorado timelines are under discussion and testing teams have indicated that they need between 12-16 weeks post freeze (including integration/test/docs) to complete the release.
  • Colorado test coordination and planning: Trevor outlines the expansion of test project and scenario growth creates a challenge for the testing teams to coordinate criteria for a release.  Trevor recommended that projects should look to contribute to the test projects which would be reported and documented in a common and consistent manner.  Fatih added that there is a need to reduce overlap and focus our efforts to maximize the effectiveness of our efforts to validate and prove the platform.  Fatih recommended that test project PTLs should drive this forward.
  • Dedicated mailing lists and GTM accounts for project teams: 
    • Frank discussed a need for a separate mailing list for the fd.io project and a discussion on if there is a good case for making an exception.  In general, there was a consensus on not having separate mailing lists for each project.  The TSC agreed to creating a separate mailing list for fd.io
    • GTM accounts: Frank outlined issues with coordinating GTM sessions across multiple project calls and Ray noted that there is a budget for getting a couple of additional GTM accounts if needed.  Ray has an action item to propose a solution to the conference infrastructure on the list and invest in additional accounts as needed.  
  • Board dialogs from the Collaboration Summit: Chris Price summarized board dialogs from the Collaboration Summit.  One of the discussion topics with the OpenStack Board was tracking developer contributions.

    • Debra outlines that the teams are focused on troubleshooting scenario's that were not in a completely "release ready" state for Brahmaputra. Also, some of the limitations may not be solved in the B release timeframe and may be documented limitations
    • Morgan notes the need to establish a methodology for handling C release activities in parallel with B-stable handling. The current assumption is that we will work only on Master and stable/Brahmaputra and tag the releases as they are ready on stable/Brahmaputra. Uli added that we are not doing stable releases, but only stabilizing scenarios. There was a discussion that there is a need to secure resources for stable handling of stable/Brahmaputra once the scenario's are in a stable state while other resources are assigned to the C-release. Octopus/Releng teams have the action item to work with the design teams to establish a resource plan for stable handling for Brahmaputra 2.0 plus document stable branch handling and labeling for stable/Brahmaputra on the release wiki page.
    • Brahmaputra marketing launch: Heather described various marketing assets that went live earlier in the morning such as the press release, blog post, software downloads page, Brahmaputra landing page, etc.
  • Release C planning
    • Chris Price discussed Immediate activities for release planning.. There were discussions on dates (e.g. a month later than the original target), inter-project dependencies, integration/testing, etc. Chris took the action item to start a discussion on the mailing list to iterate on the wiki page.
    • Release C naming: Ray still collecting nominations and the plan is to send out a poll on March 3rd. A question was raised on guideline for release names, and there was a discussion that there is no strong desire/reason to impose restrictions on release names.

  • Brahmaputra release update:
    • Number of scenarios are ready for release (e.g. Apex/ODL-L2, Compass/ODL-L2, Compass/ONOS, Compass/NOSDN, Fuel/NOSDN, Fuel/ODL-L2, Fuel/ONOS, etc.) There are also projects that have not yet reached a stable scenario (e.g. NFVOVS, KVM4NFV, SFC, BGP-VPN, Doctor, etc.)
    • There was a good discussion on scenarios that are deploying successfully, but have known limitations. The TSC agreed that scenarios with known limitations can be release on Feb. 25th with limitations documented. (These scenarios need to be reproducible) The OPNFVDOCS team has the action item to work with the deploy and test teams to clarify and fully document the state of each scenario. Aric/Debra/Octopus team also took the action item to ensure that the release tagging process is well understood for the project leads. Tagging must be done by Wednesday for all projects.
    • Ray discussed updates on the software downloads page. The main download page will have links to deploy tools and users will be taken to a separate page that include software and documentation for each deploy tool. The main page will also have links to composite docs and a link to the release documentation page which will contain all project documentation.
    • Heather raised the question on the terminology for release iterations. Frank suggested "Release Additions", and there were no objections to the term.
  • Release C Planning:
    • Ray took an action item to start a mailing list conversation for the C-release naming
    • C-release brainstorming Etherpad started
    • There was a good discussion on learnings from the Brahmaputra release such as resource issues on the back-end (e.g. for testing, CI, documentation, etc.), and with Pharos and install teams. There is also a need to identify early on how many projects will be involved and what impact they will have on integration, testing, and infrastructure. Shifting requirements late in the release cycle is also something that needs to be avoided. Another concern that was brought up was that the OPNFV community is not setup to provide adequate support across multiple versions of upstream projects.

Goal is to provide conduit to SDOs so they can interact with OPNFV through our tools. Suggestions were made to add new committers from HPE & Huawei as was discussed in email threads. The project creation was approved via IRC vote.
  • Project termination review for LSOAPI: Kevin discussed reasons for project termination listed on the project wiki page. Dave Neary asked if this is an area that needs to be worked on beyond the Brahmaputra release, and Kevin responded that the problem can now be worked on in ODL (e.g. for the Boron release). There was also a discussion that validation of the use case can be moved to other OPNFV projects such as SDNVPN. The TSC approved project termination via IRC vote.

For documentation, Ray added that Creative Commons license should bs used as noted in the Documentation section of OPNFV Coding Guidelines. opnfvdocs team took an action item to work with the projects to ensure we have the right licensing in our documents. Finally, Scott added that if a file has an incorrect license it can be flagged as a bug, but one needs to be sure they have the rights to change the license of the file prior to making any corrections.
  • Brahmaputra status update: Debra noted that troubleshooting is on-going after code freeze. Some scenarios (e.g. Compass, JOID) have begun to stabilize, but for others more runs are needed to establish a stable trend. There was a good discussion on the latest proposal for a schedule captured on https://etherpad.opnfv.org/p/steps_to_brahmaputra. Morgan added that having all project teams use the same CI solution will make it easier to track & predict what is happening (e.g. on https://build.opnfv.org/ci/view/OPNFV%20Platform%20CI%20-%20Alternative%20View/). The consensus was that the community will likely have more confidence in setting the release date in about a week’s time. The TSC agreed to postpone setting the release date until next TSC meeting when more information will be available.

  • Brahmaputra status update: Debra noted that currently there are 24 scenarios planned and 15 of them are installing successfully. Other scenarios have not been deployed and still working through known issues. On testing, both Functest & Yardstick are working through issues. Morgan also added that there are issues with vPing & vIMS. Currently, there is no scenario that is able to be run according to the release requirement of four successful runs (Compass is closest). Consensus that the community is about three weeks behind on meeting the Milestone E requirements (people are still working towards code freeze in many cases). The community also had to deal with the delay in CI lab resources as many were not available until early January.
  • Brahmaputra release date and content discussion: There was a good discussion on staying with the time-based approach for the release vs. moving to a more content-based approach (where a release date would be set based on achieving targets for scenarios). Community also learned in the past few weeks that testing required more time than originally anticipated. There was a consensus to create a new schedule with reasonable milestones in order to set a target release date. The TSC decided to postpone the target release date of Brahmaputra via IRC vote.
    • After the vote, there was a discussion on the definition of code freeze and Chris Price took the action item to start this discussion on the mailing list and vote on the code freeze date.

  • Brahmaputra update: Debra reported that code freeze for installers (e.g. Fuel, Compass4nfv) postponed for a few days due to hardware issues over the weekend. Major challenge now is to stabilize testing suites and test results for the scenarios. Some projects have decided to work in a post-install process to relieve the requirement to support a tested Brahmaputra scenario. Frank added that the TSC will need to determine next week how strict we are on maturity and conformance as we approach the final release date for scenarios that are struggling with stability.
  • Brahmaputra release marketing plan: Brandon Wick reported that the marketting team is preparing their content for going live on Thursday the 4th, pending a go/no-go decision by the TSC on February 2nd. A new Brahmaputra landing page will also be added to opnfv.org. Jill Lovato also discussed press release, blog post, and social media campaign. Jill also wants to include quotes from project leads in the Brahmaputra PR campaigns. Frank asked how much lead time the marketing team would need for release marketing, and Brandon noted that the 2 day buffer is there to allow for any fluctuation.
  • Q1'2016 Hackfest at ONS (March 14-15): Ray started a Hackfest planning etherpad (https://etherpad.opnfv.org/p/Q1'2016_Hackfest) and encourages everyone to add suggested topics on the etherpad.
  • Board meeting update: Chris went over the The January Board meeting summary that was sent out by Wenjing (Board Secretary). During the TSC update, Chris Price communicated to the board that the goal is to stay with the time-based release schedule for Brahmaputra.
  • TSC Policy document update: Brian Skerry provided an update on the TSC Policy document and suggested doing final edits over the mailing list before voting at the TSC meeting next week.
  • ETSI NFV Modeling Workshop summary: Bryan Sullivan provided an update from his participation at the workshop (http://lists.opnfv.org/pipermail/opnfv-tech-discuss/2016-January/007651.html). Bryan also discussed his plan to incubate a project that evaluates interfaces from SDO's and how they are able to be applied to OPNFV (and our upstream communities) including evaluating any divergences.
  • AoB: Ray gave a reminder that an email has been sent to project leads if there were either missing or non-Apache v.2 license information in project repos. A request to address these issues as soon as possible.

Ray to start a discussion on the mailing list to collect community feedback.
  • Project life cycle update: Frank/Ildiko summarized the updates to the document and recent discussions in the community. There was a consensus that further iteration on the document will likely be necessary for latter stages like Integration. The TSC approved the latest project lifecycle document via IRC vote (with 13 votes in favor).
  • Brahmaputra update: Work is on-going to resolve Pharos issues in order to have a stable infrastructure. Testing is also constrained due to issues with deployment scenarios and this is being addressed. Scenario freeze date has been pushed out to January 15th to allow more features into Brahmaputra. Debra is also driving towards test tools, installers, and infrastructure projects freeze by January 19th. TSC should have the necessary information by the next TSC call (January 19th) to make an informed decision on the release.
  • C-release milestone discussion: There was a discussion on the need to clarify milestones for the C-release.
    • The following people volunteered to help Debra with this activity Uli, Fatih, Edgar, Ildiko, Trevor, Tim Irnich, and Frank Brockners.

  • Alan Sardella also starts this week as a Technical Marketing Manager for OPNFV.
  • License scan for Brahmaputra: Scott Nicholas reported the outcome of the recent license scan and not all projects are following the best practice of including licensing information in files (and not just having a license file in each directory). Scott and Ray will be reaching out to project leads if there's missing license information or if there's a-non Apache 2 license. Scott also added that investigation on license for binary files is still on-going. Scott/Ray will also share the license scan data with files that are missing license or has non-Apache 2 license.
  • Brahmaputra update: Debra reminds everyone that the deadline for Milestone E (code freeze and establishing the stable branch) is today. Debra presented the idea of a "release group" that can evaluate release readiness. There was also a good discussion on Brahmaputra Scenarios. The preference is to ensure that key groups like functest, Pharos, yardstick, releng, installers, scenario leaders, etc. are represented in the "release group".

Minutes

  • Previous minutes approved
  • OPNFV internship program proposal: Ray presented the proposal for OPNFV internship. This is a year around program with options for either 3-month or 6-month project. The mentors will be responsible for posting the project proposal, selecting, and managing the intern. Thus the availability and dedication of mentors will be key to the success of the intern project. The community is asked to provide additional feedback via mailing list or wiki.
  • Brahmaputra update: Debra has been focused on working with the community on CI/Genesis/test infrastructure activities. There was also a call on plug-in development which was identified as a gap. There was a question if there is a summary of the features available for all installer in Brahmaputra and they can be found at https://git.opnfv.org/cgit/genesisreq/tree/docs/sources/system-requirements.rst and https://git.opnfv.org/cgit/genesisreq/tree/docs/sources/ux-requirements.rst. Uli added that we do not yet have a stable base for our testing projects to further develop stability in the test suites. There was also a discussion on availability of PODs for installers/CI/testing/releases, and more detailed discussion will continue on Pharos calls.
  • Review and comments on the API workshop material: Bryan Sullivan will be representing OPNFV at the API workshop, and the goal of his presentation is to communicate our desire to collaborate with SDO' performing interface modeling and specification. Bryan is soliciting feedback/input from the community especially on some technical areas.
  • Methods of publishing requirements work with our release: Uli noted "requirements" documents we release should receive a proper review. However, adding them to the documentation tree would not require a huge effort. There was also a discussion that requirements documents are living documents.
  • Project Creation Review
    • OVN for NFV project proposal: The goal of this project is to align on NFV requirements and contribute upstream to OVN. There was a question on what additional capabilities are provided by OVN, and Vikram noted that OVN provides an alternative method of implementing existing features and distributes network control elements. In response to questions regarding OVSNFV project, Vikram noted that objectives of OVN and OVSNFV projects are different, but the intention is to work with OVSNFV team. Via IRC vote, project creation was approved for ovn4nfv (+1: 8 votes, 0: 4 votes, -1: none as shown on IRC log)
  • Updates from the December board meeting: postponed to future meeting as time was running out

    • Q1 Hackfest poll: The poll was close between Collab Summit (18):ONS (15). There was a good discussion on whether it makes sense to have two separate meetings or one meeting at one location. Via IRC vote, the TSC agreed to have the Q1 Hackfest co-located with ONS (week of March 14th, 2016).
  • Removal of OPNFV's initial scope constraints: Prodip Sen gave an update to the technical community on the board's decision to remove initial scope constraints. Prodip noted that most of the concerns were around the timing and not necessarily on removing the constraints. There was a feedback that the technical community would like more transparency and discussion around important topics like the scope. The community also discussed if the TSC Policy document needs to be updated with the removal of scope constraints, and there was a general consensus that an update is need. Dave Lenrow and Brian Skerry have the action item to start a workgroup and propose an amendment of the TSC policy for TSC review.
  • Brahmaputra milestone D report: Debra shared the Milestone D report plus projections for Milestone E. Some of the concerns approaching Milestone E are CI unknowns, installer interactions, resource issues, etc. Chris Price noted that one of the learnings from Brahmaputra is that there is a need for more detailed information on milestone criteria.
  • TSC meetings rest of the year: There will be TSC calls on December 22nd & January 5th. NO meeting on December 29th.
  • OPNFV input at Jan 13-14 ETSI NFV-ISG Inter-SDO Information Modeling Workshop: Bryan Sullivan sent out emails to mailing lists regarding the workshop and Bryan is looking for community to provide input from OPNFV as he is developing the presentation.
  • Artifact page updates, approval of budget: There was a discussion on revamping the current artifacts page and Fatih has an action item to start discussing the new artifacts page design on mailing lists. Via IRC vote, TSC approved the budget for the new artifacts page.

  • Milestone D update: Debra noted that milestone D reports are looking good, but projects are reporting issues as they work towards Milestone E. Debra will also reach out to project leads for 1-on-1 discussions.
  • Plugfest support: Certification & compliance committee wants to have plugfest events following each release. First one is targeted for March-June timeframe after the Brahmaputra release. Chris Price noted that a working group (for testing/integration) is needed to support plugfests. Chris Price/Wenjing will send a note to the mailing list to start the conversation on the Plugfest working group
  • Q1'2016 Hackfest LF Collab-Summit vs. ONS discussion: There was a good discussion on co-locating the Q1 hackfest at either the LF Collab Summit (Lake Tahoe) or ONS (Santa Clara). Ray Paik took the action item to send out a poll to gauge community preference.
  • OPNFV security initiative: Luke described LF's Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) badge program and how many of the items in the program provides a recommended framework to help OPNFV focus on security as a community. There was a good discussion on impact of upstream components and how the program applies to an integration project like OPNFV. There was a consensus in the TSC for the OPNFV security group to pursue the CII badge program.
  • Pharos LF & Community lab use for Brahmaputra release processing: Fatih explained that there will be resource constraints for Brahmaputra testing if we constrain the release testing to be done only in the LF labs and would like to take advantage of capacity in community Pharos labs. There was a good discussion on which community labs can provide the capability and the need to re-purpose some of the developmental labs for release testing. Using community lab resources also gives the community to demonstrate portability of OPNFV. The TSC agreed to allow the use of Pharos community labs for release testing.

Ray Paik responds that the update is in progress and should be updated soon. There was a discussion on the Word template of the project proposal and the consensus was to remove the Word template and continue using the Wiki template.
  • Project scope changes: There was a discussion on what needs to be done when project's scope changes post creation. The consensus was to have project teams notify the TSC of the scope change and the TSC reserves the right to discuss/review the scope change. There was also a suggestion that changes in the project should be well documented in the project wiki page.
  • Process for archiving projects: There was a discussion on how a project maybe archived when the project has no active members. Also, when dormant projects are listed on the wiki this may cause misconceptions on OPNFV's activities. So far, two dormant projects have been identified, and Ray Paik contacted the project teams regarding archiving those projects.
  • Finalize the review of the Board f2f and discussions: Uli raised the concern that a major changes in the technical aspect of the project as a result of board discussions should be discussed in the technical community. Chris Prise raised the point that board discussions are not public information so this is not always easy. Discussion ensued, and Uli made a request that in the future Chris Price ask for more time to the board in order to collect more input from the technical community.
  • Wiki migration plans: The community is generally in agreement with the proposed timeline, however, the request is made to start the migration process post December 1st (Brahmaputra milestone D).

  • OPNFV Project Life Cycle changes and amendments to Bylaws & TSC Charter: The board approved amendments to bylaws and the TSC Charter with the streamlining of the project life cycle. Feedback from the board was that there is a proliferation of many projects and new projects may want to investigate joining existing projects. There was discussion on the need to re-visit metrics on how projects progress from incubation to mature and if changes are needed for project creation. Frank took the action item to begin working on establishing the metrics and evaluation criteria for project progression post Brahmaputra. Dave Neary and Ildiko will also work on clarifying expectations on project creation with the recent amendments
  • Four additional Cisco UCS servers at the LF Lab: New servers are now available in the LF lab and the infrastructure will now be reconfigured to provide 2 POD's for deployment and 2 stand alone servers for nested deployments as well as providing build machines for jobs. Trevor took the action item to update the Pharos page to reflect the changes in the LF lab.

There were questions on if the information on OPNFV Coding Guidelines is accurate and how to handle gif/jpeg/binary files. Ray has an action item to investigate these questions with Scott and report back to the technical community.
  • Brahmaputra artifact governance and expectations: Dave Neary noted that he wants Brahmaputra to be based on at a minimum patches that are accepted upstream. However, Frank mentioned that this may not always be possible due to the large cross project dependencies in OPNFV and adds that install teams are concerned about the amount of last minute work that might come up. PTL's have the action item to provide your requirements are into the genesis requirements by November 13th. Frank and Chris Price will also put a concrete proposal together on release contents

Projects would include needed combination of documentation, development, needed integration and testing and is reflective of the way the projects are working in OPNFV today. Ildiko also proposes re-classification of project types to; Continuous Build and Integration, Continuous Deployment and Testing & New Requirements and Features. There is also no need for a "top-level" project. TSC agrees to continue development of these proposals and there will be a community activity to revise documents such as Project Lifecycle, TSC Policy, Bylaws, etc. and bring to the TSC for review at a later date.
  • OPNFV Brahmaputra Release discussion: Debra mentions that based on feedback received so far, there is limited dependency on OpenStack Liberty which makes a December release a viable (with OpenStack Kilo). Discussion ensued if the community is comfortable with being “behind” on OpenStack release if we stay with June/December cadence (installer support & testing will likely require ~2 months post OpenStack release). Debra also shared the Brahmaputra release page (Releases Brahmaputra Release Plan) with the definition of the release theme "Lab Readiness". A suggestion was made to agree on dates for Milestones A/B/C next week.
  • Project creation review:
    • Project Name: Genesis: Frank noted that the genesis project intends to work across the installer projects to create a common set of requirements for the installers to comply to during the release. The project will also work with component teams to facilitate the integration of new components into the installers. Frank also added that governance details are still in draft and will evolve. The project creation was approved via IRC vote.

The activity will help identify any issues and establish some best practices for OPNFV. In addition, this will allow the team to do a dry run of the vulnerability management process being defined by the security group. Will need a lab and some volunteers for the audit. Luke has the action item to create a proposal for the audit activity as a project.
  • Project creation review for OpenContrail Quickstart: Stuart Mackie presented the proposal and noted that this is a start-up project to help get hands-on experience and create visibility.

  • Updating Section 7 of TSC Charter: There was a discussion on updating two sentences in Section 7 of the charter. Will continue the discussion over the mailing list and ratify during next week's meeting.
  • Project creation review:
    • Multisite Virtualized Infrastructure: Howard Huang (Huawei) presented the proposal, which is based on the ETSI NFV phase 1 work. There is a need in upstream communities to enable this functionality which are intended to be addressed in the requirements project. The project creation was approved via the IRC vote.
    • Escalator: Jie Hu (ZTE) presented the proposal, which intends to address the needs of operators for system upgrade. The project creation was approved via the IRC vote.

  • Committer update process: There was a discussion that votes on committer updates need to be captured in minutes/email. Frank asks what is meant by "a majority vote". For example, is it majority among all committers or majority of those who actually voted? The consensus was majority of all committers and Ray has the action item to propose a new language for Section 7 of the TSC Charter.
  • OPNFV Compliance & Certification (C&C) Committee: Heather discussed the board approval of forming a C&C Committee. There will be representatives from board, TSC, and marketing committee. For TSC members interested in volunteering, please email Heather.
  • Arno marketing update: There was a good discussion on the release diagram. Heather mentioned that all feedback for OPNFV & Arno overview slides (i.e. slides 1 & 2) have been incorporated and the updated version will be posted on the wiki. Please send feedback if there are any technical inaccuracies.
  • Hoodies: Ray discussed ordering new hoodies for upcoming technical gathering at the OpenStack Summit. Since we're ordering a larger quantity and higher quality hoodies, this will require ~20% of the remaining TSC initiatives budget. There was a consensus among TSC members that this is a worthwhile investment to raise awareness among developers and agreed to move forward with the purchase.
  • Open access to OPNFV tools: Iben outlines that the ability of external parties to review our patches and contributions is inhibited since you can not access OPNFV repo's without an LF account. Aric will investigate and report back to the TSC with options for enabling open read-only access to Gerrit.
  • Arno project plan & tracking: Due to delays in LF hardware availability, RC1 was not fully passed. Deploy scripts and auto testing scripts are available in repositories now, documentation templates are now available. For LF hardware, still waiting on an adaptor that is due to arrive this morning Pacific Time. Fatih reports that once the LF hardware is available, there will be a 1-day lead time required to have the jobs set up and connected. For Functest, scripts and structures are in place in the repo. Intel lab access for Jenkins has been resolved.
  • Project approvals: Chris reminds the community that request for creation review must happen via an email to the TSC. Also when your projects are approved, please list them on the main wiki page under approved projects.

  • OPNFV Hardware update at the LF Data Center: There have been some delays as purchasing of additional network & power connectors was necessary. Konstantin expects the hardware to be available for a dry-run by the end of this week (and ready for Jenkins setup early next week). Konstantin asks that if you need access to the OPNFV hardware, send your request to Chris Price, Trevor Cooper, or Frank Brockners. Since we will not be able to run RC1 activity on LF hardware, Frank will work with the Ericsson team to try to run RC1 activities in the Ericsson lab
  • Release diagram: Heather reviewed the draft release diagrams. There was a lot of discussion on "roadmap" slides. First, there was a consensus to drop the word "roadmap" and a preference to only include open source projects that are in the project pipeline. Will continue the discussion to the mailing list and will have the latest draft posted on the wiki. Please send any feedback/comment on release diagrams by Friday this week (April 10th).
  • OPNFV meeting tools and logistics: Frank reported that OPNFV have too many meetings that require audio and suggests some of the projects move to IRC-only meetings to see if this can become a default option for OPNFV meetings.
  • Award program: Ray discussed the proposal that was previously sent to the mailing list. For quarterly & "MVP" awards, the consensus is open nominations & voting. There can be a nomination/awards committee to help review & short-list nominees. Ray to write-up a final proposal for TSC approval.

  • Hackfest planning: Discussion on-going with the OpenStack community (esp. the Telco working group) on options for collaboration in Vancouver. There was also a discussion on if there is a need for a "standalone" OPNFV Hackfest as the next two planned hackfests are co-located with upstream projects (e.g. OpensStack & ODL). The consensus was to stay with the current plan and re-evaluate later in the year if necessary.
  • Development tools training: Aric has posted content on the wiki https://wiki.opnfv.org/developer, but some recorded sessions would be helpful. Ray has the action item to see if there are existing training materials @LF. Fatih/Iben/Aric will also build recorded training materials.

  • Review of ETSI NFV#9 meeting in Prague: Chris Price gave an update from the TST meeting. He suggested ETSI to propose a LOI to OPNFV. Parviz also shared that TMF, ETSI NFV, 3GPP SA5 will work closely together. Immediate impact to OPNFV will be minimal. In general, ETSI was happy to see participation from OPNFV.
  • Release 1 naming: There was a good discussion on if the voting should to open to everyone (i.e. not just the TSC members), and the consensus was that it should be open to everyone on the tech-discuss mailing list. Ray will simplify the list, get legal feedback, and send a survey out for vote. In the survey, voters will be asked to write in their names.
  • Topic filters: TSC agreed to enable topic filters on tech-discuss mailing list. Ray will also send instructions/documentations plus post on the wiki.
  • Maintaining project leader, committer & contributor list: Aric wants to have a more reliable source than the wiki and suggested that when a project is created a file is created in the repository that describes the current list of committers & project lead. Aric will also investigate if we can auto-generate key project facts onto the project wiki page.
  • Development tool training, Jira, Gerrit, Git, Jenkins: Chris proposed doing training sessions that is also recorded. This can be used as an on-boarding tool.
  • Release 1 update: There was an agreement to begin describing Release 1 on the OPNFV wiki page, capturing the intended activities and objectives. Uli will begin to put this on the wiki.
  • Project plans & testing: Frank shared that the team is starting to put the material into Jira for more public visibility. There are also separate pages for different deployment tools showing current activities. Invitation to the technical community to visit status pages and find areas where they can help. Uli shared that the Octopus team is currently focused on integrating with other projects for automated test. Jira also setup for functest, and Palani is looking for help on creating user stories.
  • Documentation: Seeking volunteers. Documentation wiki page already started.
  • OpenStack blueprint (BP)
    • There was a discussion that proposed BPs should be as visible and aligned among multiple projects. Chris Price proposed having a 30 minute meeting prior to the next TSC call.
    • Final call for BPs for L-release will be Vancouver meeting in May. Reviewer resource is the bottleneck for OpenStack.
    • There was also a suggestion to have release information for other upstream projects such OpenDaylight, Open vSwitch, DPDK, etc.
  • Project Approvals
    • Data Collection for failure prediction - OPNFV failure prediction:: Linghui Zeng (Huawei) presented the project proposal. The initial goal of the project will be on the data collector (e.g. what data should be collected but is not yet available). Project creation was approved via the IRC vote.

  • OPNFV Release 1 discussion:
    • Octopus: Uli outlined CI activities including the Jenkins environment and jobs structure.
    • BGS: Frank described two projects using Foreman vs. Fuel deployment tools. There was a good discussion on the possibility of picking one installer and focusing our resource on one project. However, people working with one installer will not be able to transition over to the other project to provide additional bandwidth. Thus we would not necessarily gain anything by focusing only on one particular installer
    • Another critical element for Release 1 is the OPNFV hardware @LF data center. The target date for the hardware availability is March 15th.
    • Chris Price proposed 6 weeks after the hardware availability to pull the first release together (April, 23, 2015). There was a good discussion on the desire from projects teams for more time, but there were also comments from the community that having an early release maybe preferred even if it's not feature-rich (e.g. missing HA). This gives people an opportunity to experiment & participate. There was also consensus that setting the release date to coincide with the OpenStack Kilo release or the NFV World Congress will not be ideal.
    • The TSC voted via IRC to approve the proposed release date of April 23, 2015
  • OPNFV Release 1 Name
    • Ray has the action item to send email to mailing lists for the naming of OPNFV Release 1 (theme is Rivers)

  • Project proposal process: There was a discussion that Thursday's Weekly Technical Discussions meeting is a good forum to gather community feedback and identify cross project collaboration opportunities. Even if not all TSC members are present on the Thursday call, it is highly recommended that project teams present their proposals at the Technical Discussion meeting prior to TSC calls.
  • Project Approvals
    • Re-visit Data Plane Acceleration: Now there is an accommodation of both hardware and software acceleration and will leverage compatibility to existing API's. Also added OpenStack as a relevant upstream project. The project creation was conditionally approved via IRC vote pending clarification of the committers list.
    • OpenStack Based VNF Forwarding Graph: Cathy Zhang (Huawei) presented the project proposal.

  • Q1 Release - hot topics
    • OPNFV interim hardware solutions: There was a discussion on hardware solutions available from Ericsson & Intel. Currently, here are some restrictions for accessing both (e.g. you need VPN for Ericsson and individual accounts need to be setup for Intel). Dell will also have an infrastructure that can be used. A suggestion was made to post updates or information on how to access these hardware on the wiki or mailing lists.

Action Item: Frank & Chris Price to bring back a proposal to the TSC next week.
    • Bootstrap/Get-Started update: Team agree to a weekly conference call on Mondays at 8am PT. The recent focus has been the OPNFV hardware requirements.
    • Continuous integration: nothing to report
    • Parser project and relevance to the first release: Uli Kleber discussed that the Parser project may bring additional value to the 1st release as it is independent from projects and integration. However there is a concern that this may take resource away from the first release.
    • Wiki page maintenance: Chris Price has the action item to begin a Wiki maintenance and governance team on the OPNFV mailing lists.
  • Project Approvals
    • OSCAR:Parviz Yegani & Stuart Mackie (Juniper) presented the OSCAR project proposal. There was a question if Stack #2 is available to the community and Stuart replied that it is available on github & OpenContrail site. Suggestion was made to change the repo name to 'oscar'. The project creation was approved via IRC vote.
    • Pharaos: Wenjing Chu (Dell) presented the project proposal. So far sites in Asia, Europe, and the US have been identified. The project will not cover benchmarking, VNF deployment testing, carrier grade requirements. Wenjing also explained that the project does not dictate the definition of the test bed. Also, a work item exists to define access needs for labs wanting to participate. The project creation was approved via IRC vote.
  • February events update: Ray Paik provided a quick update on the Meet-up (Santa Rosa, CA) and Hackfest(Prague). Registration information are available on etherpad along with agenda in development.

  • Meeting sequences around the year end: No meetings on December 23 & 30. May decide to have an extra meeting on December 18th. Since January 6th is also a holiday in some regions, we will have the first TSC meeting of 2015 on January 8th (Thursday) before resuming the regular Tuesday TSC calls the following week.
  • Collaborative development projects: Two approaches were discussed. The first is project is a use case/feature and engages as needed upstream. The second is project is upstream liaison and maps to upstream. Since there was no clear consensus after a lengthy discussion, suggestion was made to move this discussion to the mailing list. There was also a suggestion to use the first collaborative development project could be used as a pilot.
  • Project proposals:
    • Committer check for Continuous Integration (Octopus): Confirmed the updated list of committers. The Octopus project was approved via voting on IRC.
    • Committer check for Virtual Infrastructure Policy project (Copper): Added more committers & contributors. The Copper project was approved via voting on IRC.

Minutes

  • Previous minutes approved
  • December board meeting overview: Chris Price reviewed discussions at the Board meeting. Chris communicated that there was a consensus from the Board to target March'15 release date with less functionality and get the process started.
  • Project proposal process update: Chris Wright explained that the project proposal template was updated to match the Project Lifecycle document and to clarify that a project proposal should be of only one type. There was a general consensus to reduce the process overhead and there will be further discussions to accomplish this. Also a reminder that there is a 2 week public review period for proposals and TSC members need to review & provide feedback before the formal TSC review sessions.
  • Upstream software strategy: There was a good discussion on which versions of upstream projects OPNFV should take. The group also discussed if there is a need for the Simultaneous Release (SR) for the first OPNFV release. There was a general consensus that the focus will be on the latest stable upstream release as a baseline for OPNFV and the SR can come after the first OPNFV release.
  • Release date & composition: Again, there was an agreement that the SR is not needed for the first OPNFV release in March. The TSC agrees that the focus of the first release will be on the integration of upstream components into a platform, the development of our continuous integration process, and test projects focused on proving platform and NFV related functionality.
  • Project proposal review
    • Doctor: Ashiq Khan presented the revised Doctor requirements project to define requirements to improve fault management in VNFI components and an OpenStack-based VIM component. The Doctor project was approved by the TSC vote on IRC.
    • Octopus/CI Project: Uli Kleber presented the latest Octopus proposal. One of the feedbacks was that the list of committers need to be finalized/updated. Uli will bring this proposal back to the next TSC meeting
  • A suggestion was made that additional meetings may be needed for project reviews as there is a large backlog. There was a consensus to have a one hour meeting on December 4th at 6-7am Pacific Time just to review project proposals (instead of the weekly technical discussions call).

  • Project Reviews
    • IPv6: Bin Hu (AT&T) presented the project proposal. There were good discussions on if the integration scripts will be upstreamed vs. residing in OPNFV, project duration, repository name, project outcome, etc. Bin made real-time updates on the wiki and the updated proposal was approved via a vote on IRC. Congratulations on being the first approved OPNFV project!
    • Doctor: Ashiq Khan (DOCOMO) presented the proposal. There was a question from Qiao Fu (China Mobile) if there's an overlap with the High Availability project, but there was a general consensus that the goal is not to eliminate possible duplication early in the life cycle. On the Doctor project, the general feedback from the TSC is that the scope maybe too board. Ashiq will edit the proposal to bring a Requirements Project for review at the future TSC meeting.
      • Based on discussions, there is probably a need to revise/clarify the OPNFV Project Lifecycle document. The process should not slow work/discussions with upstream projects. [Action Item: Chris Wright will will send an invitation to work on the Project Lifecycle]

Minutes

  • Previous minutes approved
  • OpenStack Summit in Paris
  • CI Update (Uli Kleber): Agreed to keep project proposal short and simple and focus on the problem statement. Push lots of detail to project work items later.
    • Action Item: Uli to submit an updated document by 10/30 (Thursday)
    • Discussion on creating a sandbox so people can start work before projects are approved.
      • Action Item: Ray to investigate with the LF infrastructure team
  • Test & Performance subteam update (Trevor Copper):
    • Weekly meetings on Thursdays as noted on the wiki.
    • Likely have separate projects for use cases and test infrastructure
  • Simultaneous release (Dave Lenrow)
    • Agreement to focus on the release process and delegate the peripheral problems to other projects and processes to solve.
    • Action Item: Dave to post draft Simultaneous release draft by 10/30 (Thursday)
  • Discussion on release schedule
    • Board is asking for a V1.0 release by March, 2015. Consensus is that we do not have enough information/progress to commit to this date.
  • Engagement with upstream communities: There was a discussion on formal liaison with upstream, but suggestion was made to bring OPNFV developers and requirements to upstream projects.
  • FOSS vs. private VNFs
    • Discussed that both FOSS & proprietary VNFs can be looked at. For proprietary VNFs, we need to consider issues around licensing, performance data, etc. If performance testing requires special integration to use vendor specific APIs, vendor can do that work
    • Action item: Test & Perf sub-team to make recommendations on VNFs
  • Suggestion was made to use "[Action Required]" in email subject line when sending e-mail to the lists requiring action from list members. Please use this sparingly.
  • New GoToMeeting account created for project meetings. Contact Ray at LF if you need to organize a meeting.

TSC meeting October 14th, 2014

Agenda

Minutes

  • Chris Price reminded attendees of the Antitrust Policy Notice posted on opnfv.org
  • Previous meeting minutes (from October 1st & October 7th) approved
  • Release Naming: Palani will work with Ray to get a poll out for voting on release name themes
  • Palani is proposing we get volunteers to build a prototype based on simply taking the upstream parts and building a test platform (e.g. OpenStack, ODL, etc) and establish baseline of upstream components. Palani will send an email to the list to solicit volunteers
  • Brandon/Prathima/Vanessa (LF) discussed the OPNFV marketing committee and event planning for 2015. For 2014, there will be a meet-up at the OpenStack Summit in Paris and there was a consensus to use create stickers (with OPNFV logo & URL) vs. ordering hoodies.
  • Aric/Clint (LF) will be setting up CI infrastructure (plan is to use the Google Compute Engine)
    • Aric/Clint can reach out to Uli/Palani/Ian who started thinking about CI & test infrastructure
    • Uli will post his document on CI & test infrastructure on the wiki by the end of this week
  • A suggestion was made to create a living document to capture components of interest that don't get included in a OPNFV release
    • Project proposal is not the same as project applying to join a simultaneous release (SR). We need to have a separate discussion on requirements to join a simultaneous release.

TSC meeting October 7th, 2014

Agenda

  • Approve previous minutes
  • Agenda Bashing
  • Project proposals and reviews
    • Establishing baseline project proposals
    • Project review process updates (4 week review phase)
  • Upstream community engagement and discussion
  • Simultaneous release project establishment
  • TSC call logistics for October 14th
  • Any other business

Minutes

  • Chris Price reminded attendees of the Antitrust Policy Notice posted on opnfv.org
  • Decided to defer approving previous meeting minutes until next week.
  • No new agenda topics proposed
  • Next week's TSC meeting will be shortened to an hour (8-9am Pacific Time) to accommodate the Board meeting in Düsseldorf.
  • Reminder to TSC members to send the delegate contact information to the TSC mailing list in case you are not able to attend. Proxy voting can be cast by the delegate or emailed to Ray Paik at the Linux Foundation (LF).
  • Project proposals and reviews
    • Project proposals should be posted at https://wiki.opnfv.org/project_proposals
      • Use the template on the wiki and send an email to opnfv-tech-discuss
    • A question was raised on when project proposals can be made. There was a general consensus that proposals can be made anytime. However, there would be a cutoff date for when a project will be included in a simultaneous release.
    • There was a proposal & discussion on reducing the review period for project proposals from 4 weeks to 2 weeks. TSC members voted on this proposal and there were no objections. LF will update the Project Lifecycle document on opnfv.org.
    • Upstream community
      • Based on discussions at the face-to-face last week, the proposal is to target stable releases of upstream projects (e.g. OpenStack Juno, ODL Helium, etc.)
      • Good discussion on effectively working with upstream projects: A liaison with upstream projects, have TSC oversight of people working upstream projects, etc. There was a general consensus that we can have a point of contact within TSC for upstream projects.
      • Proposed action item for the TSC: Write down timeline for integrating with upstream projects identified to-date
        • A gap analysis against upstream roadmaps will also be helpful
    • Simultaneous release
      • There was a consensus on the need to firm up the simultaneous release process
        • Dave Lenrow will post a draft proposal on the wiki. Palani Chinnakannan also offered to help with this.
    • Continuous Integration (CI) project proposal needs to be posted ASAP. Ian Well/Uli Kleber/Chris Wright have the action item to start drafting this.
    • The integration/testing project group has started scheduling follow-up meetings
    • A reminder that a project proposal mostly captures scope. There is not need to document implementation plans in detail
      • Once projects are approved, we need to create a project page on wiki and not make changes to proposal pages
    • There was a question on how people can get visibility into projects. Once projects kickoff, each will have regular (e.g. weekly) calls with IRC and information will be posted on the wiki. Anyone can join meetings and access the wiki.
    • A question on what will be accomplished in the first release. Some of the ideas suggested were things like data plane acceleration or distribution installer. However, it is probably too early to define the first release yet.

TSC meeting October 1st, 2014

Agenda/Minutes

  • Antitrust compliance notice read
  • TSC Chair Election:
    • Voting was done via paper ballots plus e-mail votes from three TSC members who could not attend the meeting.
    • Christopher Price (Ericsson) was elected as the first TSC Chair for OPNFV
  • Future TSC meetings: There was a consensus to keep the TSC meetings open to everyone. (Anyone will be able to participate, but only TSC members can vote) Decision was made to schedule TSC meetings every Tuesday 7-9am Pacific Time. Meeting will be done via phone & IRC. Will also investigate switching to GoToMeeting.
    • Face-to-face meetings: Will target 4 face-to-face meetings/year and look for events/conferences where a lot of TSC members will be in one place. Decision on the next face-to-face meeting can be made based on projects or project proposals.
  • TSC Vice Chair discussion: There was a general consensus not to have a formal TSC Vice Chair position. If Chris Price is not able to chair/attend meetings, he will ask other TSC members to help.

    • Discussion ensued on the first OPNFV release and there was a general consensus on the following items.
      • Importance of identifying & working with upstream communities
