Agenda

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

    • Plugfest working group e-mail: Chris Price sent an email to the mailing list seeking volunteers for the upcoming Plugfest.
    • 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.

  • 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 classification discussion: Ildiko led a discussion on a proposal to combine the project types in the OPNFV project lifecycle document into a single project type. 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.

  • Progression of BGS/Genesis: Frank followed-up on his email (http://lists.opnfv.org/pipermail/opnfv-tech-discuss/2015-June/003094.html) that outlined potential evolution of BGS. Frank mentioned that continuous integration and common user experience are some of the key goals. When discussing project structure, Frank added that the contribution will be open to anyone but he was trying to have a limited number of committers.

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.

  • 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.

  • Meet-up/Hackfest summary: Heather mentioned that there were good attendance both in Santa Rosa & Prague. Good discussions on working with upstream communities, Release 1 projects, and requirements projects. Meeting materials posted at Santa Rosa MeetUp & Prague Hackfest
  • 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)

A suggestion was made to post updates or information on how to access these hardware on the wiki or mailing lists.
    • OPNFV hardware (Work environment for Bootstrap/Get-started): There was a good discussion on the BOM and a question was raised if the number of servers per PODs need to be corrected and Frank Brockners replied that it should be corrected to 6 per POD. 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.
