This is just a reference guide that a PTL may use as an aid, if they choose. It is meant to complement the official PTL guide, and is laid out in rough chronological order.
Some or all of these tasks may be delegated to other team members.
Update the kolla meeting chair
Update the team wiki
Get acquainted with the release schedule, bearing in mind that Kolla is a cycle-trailing project
Open Infrastructure Summit¶
Ideally the Kolla PTL will be able to attend the summit. If not, try to arrange for another member of the core team to represent the team. Good interaction with the community at these events is crucial to encourage upstream involvement, onboard new users, collect feedback and for the perceived health of the project.
Create a summit planning etherpad and alert about it in the kolla IRC meeting and openstack-discuss mailing list
Gather ideas for forum sessions
Example: user feedback & roadmap, design sessions
Prepare the project update presentation. Enlist help of others
Prepare the on-boarding session materials. Enlist help of others
Represent and promote the project while at the summit
Project Team Gathering (PTG)¶
Some of the Kolla team may decide to meet in person at the Project Team Gathering (PTG). Alternatively, they may decide to host a virtual PTG at a different time if there is not a critical mass of contributors attending the PTG.
Create PTG planning etherpad and alert about it in the kolla IRC meeting and openstack-discuss mailing list
Run sessions at the PTG
Have a discussion about priorities for the upcoming release cycle at the PTG
Sign up for group photo at the PTG (if applicable)
Standard PTG topics:
Required distribution upgrades (e.g. new Ubuntu LTS release)
Ansible version bump
Infrastructure services/packages updates (e.g. RabbitMQ/Erlang upgrades)
Services that need to be deprecated/removed (e.g. unmaintained projects)
After Summit & PTG¶
Send session summaries to the openstack-discuss mailing list
Update the Kolla whiteboard with decided priorities for the upcoming release cycle
