Registered by James Page on 2013-05-08

[GOAL]
Ensure Ceph remains well supported on Ubuntu 13.10 and in the Cloud Archive for 12.04.

[RATIONALE]
Ceph is an important part of the OpenStack offering on Ubuntu; we should continue to track the latest stable release from upstream (Dumpling).

Whiteboard

[USER STORIES]
Jonas (who works for a Bank) wants to deploy Ceph with encryption of underlying physical disks to ensure confidentiality in post-lifecycle decommissioning of servers. He's able to deploy Ceph Dumpling with dm-crypt encryption from the Havana Cloud Archive for Ubuntu 12.04.

James want to ensure the quality of the Ceph packages in the Ubuntu archive at all times; as the packages include DEP-8 tests these are used to gate uploads into the main development archive.

[ASSUMPTIONS]
Server QA lab will be virtualized using OpenStack supporting regular testing activities.

[RISKS]
mod_fastcgi patches not suitable for inclusion.

[IN SCOPE]
mod_fastcgi patches
ceph-deploy

[OUT OF SCOPE]

[USER ACCEPTANCE]
Multi-node testing of Ceph on a regular basis using Juju charms.
DEP-8 automated testing of Ceph providing gated entry of Ceph packages into the Ubuntu Archive.

[RELEASE NOTE/BLOG]
Ubuntu 13.10 includes Ceph 0.67.4 (Dumpling stable release), providing improved performance and efficiency and block device encryption.
