  • OPNFV update to LFN Board Jul 18th Tim Irnich
    • https://lists.opnfv.org/g/opnfv-tsc/message/4463 - Tim's summary presentation to the board
    • Tim notes that there were only few questions asked: Key question was availability of LaaS to other communities
    • Response was that this is the plan. Relies on LaaS maturing to the level where this is possible.
    • Follow up from LF to recruit a new program manager has already happened - public description of open rec is already available
    • Heather invited TSC members to spread the word and refer good candidates
  • Status & way forward on TSC task forces Tim Irnich
    • 2018 Goals Working Groups
    • Could the task forces provide for a gap analysis - which might inspire incremental work? Some task forces supplied for that.
    • Question by Tim: Several task forces span multiple projects: How can conclusions from the task forces be conveyed to the working groups? We could create a new WG from the task forces? How do we coordinate? Some body for coordination is required.
    • Task forces also have upstream peers (e.g. CNCF for cloud native task force). How do we keep the link intact - and also update the corresponding OPNFV projects
    • georgk suggests to have the recommendations as Jira tickets to that they are well documented and actionable
    • frankbrockners suggests to follow Tim's recommendation to create WGs for some of the task forces - especially cloud native.
    • That would create a touch point with CNCF and also a body which could monitor/drive progress
    • timirnich echos that comment - WG sounds like the right answer at least for cloud native TF
    • timirnich adds that for other TFs different approaches might be more feasible (e.g. OPNFV edge project could help coordinate things around edge)
    • timirnich suggests to revisit the topic in the next meetings - to distill conclusions for each of the TFs. We'll start with cloud native in the next TSC meeting.
  • Release update: Trevor Bramwell

  • Fraser launch update: Brandon mentioned that there were a number of pre-briefings with Tim Irnich and Heather and there was a good media pick up of key messages around cloud native and a good total media clip count (300). The marketing campaign helped drive traffic to opnfv.org, the software landing page, docs page, and to docs.opnfv.org). Brandon noted that most categories were roughly comparable to the Euphrates release.  Frank asked how these numbers compare to releases prior to Euphrates.  Brandon took the action item to get these numbers and post the slides on the wiki. DONE. See the Fraser rollup and release comparison slides
  • Updating the inventory of unmodified/3rd-party files: Ray shared the list of 3rd party files from the April license scan and there was a good discussion on why some fo these files (e.g. specialized fonts) are needed in OPNFV.  Ray noted that all PTLs are aware of presence of these files and that's why they all reside under the "3rd party" directory.  Ray took an action item to follow-up on the email thread with PTLs on why these files are needed in OPNFV.

  • Release update: David McBride mentioned that that MS1 for Gambia was last Friday (11th) with 35 projects participating.  There are 14 projects participating in CD release track plus 6 participating in both CD & traditional tracks.  Both Functest & Yardstick teams have concerns about supporting the CD release track and will likely be a challenge for Gambia.  Fraser 6.1 is May 25th and TSC will need to review the release status next week.  Nominations for H & I release names are continuing this week at https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/SWREL/Future+release+name+candidates 
  • LF IT/Infra update: Trevor Bramwell noted that there is a security update related to CentOS upgrade.  This will require reboot and plan is to do this maintenance after Fraser 6.1.  Ray proposed migration to groups.io of OPNFV mailing lists and the migration will take about an hour and all the archives/email addresses will be maintained.  There was a question is user passwords will carry over to groups.io and Rudy took an action item to investigate this.

  • PDF/IDF and dynamic CI introduction: Julien noted that PDF/IDF have been released for Fuel/MCP and Daisy while other installers' work is in progress. On PDF, there have been communications with all Pharos lab owners although 4 lab owners have not been responsive.   Proposed final dates for PDF creation is April 15th and June 15th for installers to use PDF/IDF.  There were also good discussions on applicability of PDF/IDF to other communities and that PDF could be extended to other non-Pharos configurations in the future. Via IRC vote, the TSC approved the PDF spec 1.0 as mandatory baseline for CI in Pharos pods and the three staged introduction time plan.  
  • Releng graduation review: Fatih noted that Releng is the first infra project going through a graduation review and project has been a community-wide effort from the beginning.  There has been good progress on scaling CI, common tooling/utilities, and XCI.  Current focous is on CI evolution, 3rd party/dynamic CI, XCI framework/scenario on-boarding.  Going forward, there's a need to work on release process improvement, scenario consolidation, 3r party CI with fd.io, investigate new tools, etc.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved graduation of Releng as a mature project.

The proposal is to start the "intent to participate" to 2 weeks prior to OpenStack release and collapse MS3.1 and 3.2.  This may require dropping point release(s) for Gambia.  As time was running out, proposal is to communicate this further in the mailing list and potentially discuss at the next TSC meeting.

  • Update on LFN certification & complaince discussion: Chris Donley summarized discussion on LFN-level compliance program and stated that the goal is to be responsive to individual technical communities, be transparent, share work across communities, etc.  There would be common legal framework, infra, tool chain, etc.  However, there would be differences in each community for test plans/tools and individual TSCs would be responsible for approving test content.  The LFN-level compliance committee would be responsible for the test framework.  Chris also added that there has already been collaboration between OPNFV and ONAP on using Dovetail's framework for VNF testing.  
  • Exemption from strict API validation in Dovetail/OVP: Georg shared additional attribute examples as a follow up from the last meeting.  Trevor Cooper added that the purpose of OVP is to test platform capabilities (vs. API compliance).  Exemption will be valid for 1 year and only two exemptions are possible per product.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved he exemption process for strict API response validation in OVP.

Chris is happy to include anyone interested in these meeting calls.
  • Docs Hacking report out: Sofia reported that ~20 people from 6 sites participated in Docs hacking last week and the list of work items are captured at https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/EVNT/Docs+Hacking.  Tim Irnich suggested repeating the event in the future, also for other things than docs (e.g. bug scrubbing).  
  • TSC member backfill: There is a proposal to have Trevor Copper backfill for Maryam in the TSC for the remainder of her term during maternity leave.  The TSC agreed to the proposal.
  • LFN TAC update: Tim Irnich noted that the first LFN TAC meeting is on February 12th.  There was a good discussion on potential topics including events and budget.  Ray took an action item to start a wiki page listing budget items for OPNFV technical community in the past.  Ray will also find out if TAC meetings will be open to everyone.

Minutes: 

  • Previous minutes approved
  • TSC member backfill: Ray confirmed that a TSC member can propose an alternate/replacement that the TSC members can vote on if that's what TSC decides to do.  The TSC agreed to vote on an alternate TSC member proposed by Maryam for the remainder of her term.
  • OPNFV Verified Program (OVP) launch update: Chris Donley noted that the plan is to launch OVP on February 6th and beta participants are re-submitting their results.  Brandon added that one of the reasons for not launching this week is that there was a desire to space out news from the LFN launch last week.  Press release draft will be circulated among marketing plus C&C committee members and there will also be a blog post penned by Chris Donley.  Chris added that the community is in early stages of discussion regarding the "second release" for OVP
  • Release update: David McBride mentioned that MS3.2 (pass health check for sdn-based scenario) is this week and installer teams are on track for the milestone.  The next major milestone is MS5 (scenario integration) on March 2nd.
  • LF IT/infra update: Trevor Bramwell noted that that Jenkins server testing will continue this week.  There was also mailing list queues yesterday and this had been fixed (no mails have been lost).  Aric discussed the patch to easily identify PTLs from INFO files and that this will be discussed on Thursday's Technical Discussion call for community feedback.  The purpose of this is to only allow PTLs to update information on the TestAPI.
  • Update on Apex installer: Dave Neary discussed that Apex team would like to move towards XCI-like model (pointing to the tip of trunk) and had discussions with a number of PTLs plus David McBride.  There was a discussion that we're in the middle of the Fraser release cycle and there is a potential impact on the release.  A question was raised if the transition can wait until Fraser stable branch is cut (in case there's a big risk in moving from OpenStack Pike to Queen).  Tim Rozet added that Apex has the ability to deploy different versions of OpenStack and ODL. Versions can be supplied in the deploy settings file, and artifacts will be downloaded at deploy time from upstream. Also, upstream OpenStack Gerrit patches can be provided which will be automatically pulled in and applied during deployment.  A discussion ensued on a need to vote on a version of OpenStack (or other upstream components) for an OPNFV release.  A suggestion was made to the Apex team to come back to the TSC to report on impact to existing projects with a new approach.  In addition, there will be a separate/broader discussion on OPNFV releases going forward.

  • Scenario consolidation: Rossella volunteered to continue the work on scenario consolidation.  Rossella discussed generic vs. specific scenarios and proposed picking a generic candidate to do a POC with an installer.   One candidate is OS+no-sdn with variables for OVS, OVS-DPDK, fd.io, Barometer, HA.  Discussion ensued and there was a consensus to get started on the POC (with volunteers from installers) and report back to the TSC.

  • LFN TAC representation: There was a discussion on TAC representation from OPNFV.  For the first 12 months, TAC members consist of Platinum designates plus representatives from each project (e.g. OPNFV, ODL, ONAP, etc.).  Tim Irnich noted that he's willing to serve as the OPNFV representative as he's interested in fostering better collaboration across LFN projects.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved Tim serving as the TAC representative from OPNFV while he's the TSC Chair.   
  • Release update: David McBride gave a reminder on upcoming milestones.  First, MS4 (test framework ready) is January 12th and for MS3.1 (passing health check) he proposed pushing this out to January 16th as 15th is a holiday in the US.  
  • LF IT/Infra update: Trevor Bramwell noted that the Jenkins upgrade testing is in progress with pods from LF and ZTE and expects tests to continue for another couple of weeks.
  • Domino termination review: Ulas discussed that no one from the community has stepped forward to work on the project after he announced that he was stepping down as a PTL a few months ago.  There are also no other active committers/contributors to the project.  There was a good discussion on reaching out to the ONAP community to see if they can leverage Domino project's work.  Via IRC vote, the TSC approved termination of the Domino project.  
  • ONS update: Tim Irnich encouraged community members to submit proposals by the CFP deadline on January 14th.  Brandon added that when community members make submissions, they can also forward the information to pr@opnfv.org so they can track OPNFV community submissions.  There will also be an LFN booth during ONS to highlight community's work.
