For a several years, the OpenStack packaging work has relied on the heroic work of one person (thanks zigo!). In the past few months, we’ve been expanding the effort out to a broader team, leading to a DebCamp sprint last week where we made good progress on some key goals like:

  • moving general Python dependencies for OpenStack into the Debian Python Modules Team,
  • moving OpenStack packaging work back to Alioth git repositories, to be more welcoming to broader Debian contributions,
  • laying the groundwork for packaging the Pike release of OpenStack (currently in RC, heading for release at the end of the month)

This BoF is a chance to chat a bit about our thoughts on what lies ahead, welcome feedback, and welcome anyone who might be interested in joining our growing band of DebStackers.
