Software upgrades for OpenStack cloud RCs

  • keystone-VOMS and cloud-info-provider updates available, need to be installed on all OpenStack sites
  • as keystone-VOMS last version is only compatible with Liberty and Mitaka, in case OpenStack is Kilo (or older) an upgrade plan of OpenStack has been asked
  • according to EGI policies OpenStack Kilo or older should NOT be running on the infrastructure! we are asking for discussing this point at the next OMB (October 27)
  • as many sites are finding difficulties in planning upgrades against the very tight release cycle of OpenStack, please come with suggestion and reply with details in the tickets in order to shape the best (shared) proposal
