Agenda for CDWG meeting at LUG

Some of the ideas were:

How to improve testing

How to strengthen release process

Multiple development streams under way at the same time

In community model, how do we be more thorough in testing. Will probably result in slower feature landings.

Should we change our release cadence?

Suggestions for making quality improvements

discuss Tuesday roadmap presentation

Final ordering by Chris:

  • Release quality issues
  • Roadmap discussion (cadence change needed?)
  • Testing discussion
  • Other ways to improve release development process


UI development

Justin mentioned that UID Mapping will be in Lustre 2.7, shared key in 2.8

Code quality

General discussion about code quality and how to approach making improvements.

We discussed code landing procedures.

Could using a branch-and-merge model help over the current cherry-pick methodology?
