Project-Builder 0.14.1 is now out for LinuxConNA !

2016/08/19

Well, in fact I froze that version back in July, but didn’t officially announced it till today (vacations were just in the middle). So that version 0.14.1 is now available, it breaks compatibility with previous ones, so you’ll need to update your VMs/VEs with it as well if you want to use it correctly (that’s why it’s still version 0.x !)

But I’ve been able to build a lot using docker containers with that version, and I’m now more and more happy with these results. Especially because it’s easier to fully automate an environment from absolutely nothing except project-builder.org to working packages. I already described it when I released 0.13.1 last year through a short tutorial, but it’s really working reliably now for a large set of distributions:

But I’ve not really worked yet on the ideas expressed when I issued 0.13.2 in February this year.

Instead I’ve done other improvements such as managing signed deb repositories (was asked for a long time), have a better naming for temporary versions (allowing easier updates between temporary versions and also with stables, but creating the incompatibility with 0.13.x), docker tests for lots of distributions (paving the way for automatic testing here from nothing to package build), adding support for pbr, standardizing temporary directory names, …

That will be the version I’ll use to make demos during my presentation next week at LinuxCon North America in Toronto as already announced. Come to see it live and so that we can discuss continuous packaging !

OpenStack Summit proposals

2016/08/07

While I’m in vacation around Barcelone, I’ve made before leaving proposals for the upcoming OpenStack Summit which will be … in Barcelona !

If you think they are valuable for the OpenStack community, let them know by voting for them 😉 Here are they:

  • The nightmare of Ironic Standalone
  • Empowering Ironic with Redfish support
  • From Bare Metal to CMDB: ITIL as Code

The easiest way to vote is to go to https://www.openstack.org/summit/barcelona-2016/vote-for-speakers/ and search for cornec in the search area on the top left. You’ll just get these 3 ones. But of course there are tons of other interesting presentations proposed and as usual it will be difficult for these one to be selected. And you should really vote for the ones which are the most interesting.

Hopefully even if not selected I’ll be able to come back in this great place and meet again with peers after Paris and Vancouver but of course, it will be much more difficult without being a presenter. Let’s see !
