Herding Cats Into Boxes: How OpenStack Release Management Changes With the Big Tent

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Liberty cycle has seen some big changes to our release process and tools. As the OpenStack projects have matured, and the OpenStack community has grown, the Release Management team has updated the way we manage releases to support the way projects want to work while continuing to make it easy for users to understand what is included in each release. All of these changes lay the groundwork for more changes to come in Mitaka.

These changes will immediately impact:

  • Distribution providers

  • Deployers

  • Version Numbering

  • The future of stable branches

  • Release cycles

This is a must-attend session for:

  • Those who curate or provide an OpenStack distribution

  • Release Managers

  • Deployers and architects
