In the newsSince our last issue, the Community App Catalog group approved two new types of assets. The first, from the January 14 meeting, is Mistral Workflows, which enable you to define very specifically what should happen when, and in response to what. The other, from the January 21 meeting, is TOSCA Service Templates, which are much like Heat templates. (In fact, the Heat Translator project, which converts them to Heat templates, simply calls them “Templates”.) Also under discussion has been the issue of whether the cloud-side backed project, Glare (Glance artifacts) would be a separate project under the Big Tent or a part of the Community App Catalog itself. At issue is the idea that if Glare is part of Glance, it may be in a position of simply proxying or duplicating Glance functionality, and in a limited way, as Glance only works with the command line and web interfaces (as opposed to having a REST interface). The community expects to make some sort of decision at the next meeting, Thursday, February 4th, 2016 at 17:00 UTC (9am Pacific). Also on the agenda for Thursday’s meeting:
- Status updates
- Resource commitments for Glare/API work (check our first issue to learn more about Glare)
- Integration with Horizon: Using form parameters may not work in near future
- Integration with Horizon: How about a stab at integration tests?
- Open discussion
