14:09:58 <bobmon01> Hi folks...can we proceed on IRC only today?
14:10:13 <bobmon01> Problems with GTM login
14:10:22 <AlexAvadanii> sure
14:11:00 <AlexAvadanii> #info Alexandru Avadanii (Enea)
14:11:21 <bobmon01> #info Bob Monkman
14:12:08 <bobmon01> Sorry for the problems today. IT once again has done me in.
14:12:30 <bobmon01> #info So, we will proceed with an update on IRC
14:13:10 <bobmon01> #info ALex and team had to cut a Danube 2.0 release yesterday. We did not realize it was mandatory to participate in interim release
14:13:51 <bobmon01> #info Alex or Crsitina can you please give an update on plan for Danube 3.0
14:14:24 <bobmon01> #info two main tracks for next few weeks- Danube 3.0 which is primiarily focused on JIRA issue cleanup
14:15:00 <bobmon01> #info 2nd is that we shall seek some performance assessments using std OPNFV perf test, to see where we are at
14:16:31 <AlexAvadanii> about D3 plans ... mostly stabilization and minor improvements
14:17:13 <AlexAvadanii> we have to bump some packages (qemu 2.9.0 is now out for example), we still have 1-2 refcore tests that prevent our functest from reporting 100% success, although we are now at 99.9% overall
14:17:34 <AlexAvadanii> and depending on other projects, like sdnvpn, we might try to enable the bgpvpn scenario back
14:18:01 <AlexAvadanii> we should start planning for the E release rebase, which will have to be coordinated with Fuel@OPNFV
14:18:23 <OPNFV-Gerrit-Bot> Alexandru Nemes proposed armband: Fuel-OSTF: Arch dependent Cirros ssh password  https://gerrit.opnfv.org/gerrit/34363
14:18:30 <AlexAvadanii> it is highly probable the Fuel@OPNFV E release will be based on the new Mirantis Cloud Platform, which will have some impact on Armband too
14:18:35 <bobmon01> #info what sort of coordination or hurdles do you expect with Fuel team
14:18:58 <bobmon01> #info Ok, that sounds like a major work effort
14:19:37 <bobmon01> #info I am very concerned that this could consume an inordinate amout of resources and time, leaving little time for anything else
14:20:39 <AlexAvadanii> it's not a light task for sure, but it's not going to hog all our bandwidth either - it's still Ubuntu 16.04 we are going to deploy
14:20:52 <AlexAvadanii> but look on the bright side - MCP has kubernetes integration
14:21:02 <AlexAvadanii> so this effort will come with a high reward
14:21:42 <bobmon01> #info So you are saying that this kubernets integration could enable better support for containerized VNFs?
14:22:31 <bobmon01> #info I want to work closely with Dan Radez and team on Apex Installer support as one of the highest priortiies
14:23:07 <AlexAvadanii> we have no container integration right now, so yes, that would be better than none :)
14:23:10 <bobmon01> #info we want and need CentOS support and another installer
14:24:15 <bobmon01> #info Dan R reports that he is in the final stages of getting Apex installer support for ARM back to where we was with OpenStack Newton, upgraded to Ocata in prep for E-release
14:25:10 <bobmon01> #info I would like to see tech leads from Armband reach out to Dan and determine is help can be provided to ensure that we get APex support for Euphrates
14:26:15 <Thol> Noted
14:26:19 <bobmon01> #info Can we please mark this as a top priority for E-release? We need diversification here on Installers and of course base OS support wrt CENTOS
14:26:55 <bobmon01> #info thanks Thomas
14:26:58 <Thol> Ok
14:27:28 <Thol> ... and ACK on the installer diversity priority.
14:27:49 <Thol> #info  ... and ACK on the installer diversity priority.
14:28:03 <bobmon01> #info Besides Upgrading Fuel and adding Apex, the only major features I proposed for E-release platform were integrating better DPDK and ODP support for VNFs
14:28:48 <bobmon01> #info From our last online Armband meeting, did I miss any other features in the Plan that we had discussed?
14:31:10 <bobmon01> #info Due to last day of NFV World Congress being today, I need to get down to the event soon and so would prefer to keep this meeting short today
14:31:25 <bobmon01> #info any other topics people wish to cover?
14:31:51 <Thol> Not from me
14:32:15 <OPNFV-Gerrit-Bot> Alexandru Nemes proposed armband: Fuel-OSTF: Arch dependent Cirros ssh password  https://gerrit.opnfv.org/gerrit/34363
14:33:03 <bobmon01> #info Ok...then I will close the meeting. We can iterate on tech-discuss in any urgent issues comes up between now and next meeting 2 weeks from today
14:33:16 <bobmon01> #info I will have GTM sorted
