OpenStack Charm work for Vivid

Registered by James Page

The OpenStack charms are and should continue to be the de-facto way to install OpenStack on Ubuntu; lets keep it that way!

Move to 3 month charm cycle to avoid feature starvation
Improve QA activities to include HA++ testing
Improve charm HA where possible
Neutron router HA and DVR support

Milestone target:


Dean is a developer on a product that makes use of the OpenStack charms; he's able to keep introducing new features alongside charm updates every three months, instead of having to wait for six months.

James is deploying neutron and wants to try out the new HA features introduced in juno; he's able to enable these in his deployment with:

    juju set neutron-api router-ha=true distributed-virtual-router=true

Emma is debugging a problem with her OpenStack charm deployment; she's able to easily parse the debug logs and understand what's causing her problems.

Corey wants to use the OpenStack charms to deploy his current WIP on a refatoring in the upstream OpenStack codebase; he's able to deploy OpenStack componets from git repositories in an easy to use fashion which feels very similar to devstack stack/unstack.

Bob wants to be able to do an ha deployment with a single deployer config rather than used a phased deployment.

3 month release cycle is only supportable with appropriate QA (esp HA).

Insufficent resource to delivery scope for cycle.

OpenStack charms + mysql, rabbitmq-server, percona-cluster, mongodb, redis

Any other charms.

No features should land into next without a) appropriate unit tests b) amulet tests and c) deployer configurations for fully automated testing.

Features should consider HTTPS and HA requirements.

Neutron DVR/HA
ZeroMQ support (inc Redis)
Ceilometer HA + HTTPS
Heat HTTPS (no HA this cycle)
Keystone PKI support
HA improvements
Deploy from git.
