LWG meeting at LUG

LWG meeting after LUG will be at 2pm on Wednesday afternoon, April 15th.

Lustre 2.8 Discussion

Discussed if there are any additional planning that is necessary.

Decided on June for the freeze and September for the release (this is one month delayed from a normal six month schedule).

LNet Checksumming and Lock-ahead were both mentioned as possibly done by June for inclusion in 2.8.

There was discussion about topic branches. Chris pointed out that we had decided to use them, and reminded everyone to start doing so for anything going forward. It was decided that some documentation is needed about topic branches, because not everyone understands what they are or how to use them in context of our gerrit review system.

Talked about need for a Lustre 2.8 wiki page listing "candidate features" to help plan for what is going to be in 2.8.

Things that people are working on:

  • LNet Checksum (James Simmons)
  • libcfs cleanup (James Simmons)
  • Lustre API work (Frank Zago)
  • Continued testing at Cray
  • Patchless server work (Crea)
