2.13.0 Release Update

  • Nothing really noteworthy to report out on this week. There was a bit of a GAP in landings due to a patch in master-next that had some unwanted side effects and that needed to be sorted out before doing any landings.
  • Anything else to report out on?
    • James: We are looking to do some performance profiling next week.

Upstream Lustre Client

  • Initial sphinx documentation stuff has landed.
  • We are going to do a test run of moving out of the staging tree.
  • Neil has confirmed that he is coming to LUG.

Ken (via email)

  • The PHP upgrade talked about on previous calls will occur next week.
  • Questions have come up about the status of moving to support https.
    • Th problem is that the site uses a custom theme, which does not allow us to include certain elements. We could switch over right now to support https, but some elements within the site would not support it and modern browsers will not behave well with a mixed mode site.
    • There is a functionality inside the custom theme called SAS (for custom CSS) that appears to be the final roadblock.

Other Business

  • LUG: The plan is to do some tutorials for newbies that will coincide with the developer day in an effort to try and boost attendance.
  • Support matrix discussion (Christopher): People often ask about the support matrix, because it is hard to find if you are on lustre.org. The link to the whamcloud site is unknown to most users. It would be best to have it moved to lustre.org or have a link from lustre.org wiki to the whamcloud wiki.
    • Peter: This is a confusing topic because the information on the whamcloud wiki is really a TEST matrix of what configurations were tested and not a proper support matrix. Someone may have a subset or a superset of this test matrix that is what they actually use and support. I think we need to think about who we are trying to reach with this data and what they are hoping to get out of it.
    • Chris: Agreed, we should be careful about naming this appropriately.
    • Ken: Will take and action to look at the current pages and propose a solution. It seems that having a support/test disclaimer on the lustre wiki with a link to the whamcloud wiki would suffice in the short term. A link could then be added to lustre.org to refer to the lustre wiki page.

Next meeting will be on 2019-03-24 at 11:00am Pacific
