Election Timeline
The nomination period will be two weeks from the time that the nomination solicitation email is sent to both the Announce and Dev lists.

The election period will be two weeks from the time that the CIVS voting URLs are sent out.

In the event that there is any technical issue with either the lists.io email service or the CIVS service, the election coordinator may extend either period by up to one week without TSC approval. Any further extension will require TSC approval.

The nomination period for Chairperson will begin immediately following the conclusion of the TSC Election.

  • The self-nomination period will begin 18 Feb 2021
  • The self-nomination period will end 04 Mar 2021.



The TSC is responsible for:

  • Setting high level architecture goals and coordinating overall project architecture and technical direction
  • Selecting technology stack, software features and supported hardware including
  • Approving project or system proposals (including, but not limited to, incubation, deprecation, and changes to a sub-project’s scope);
  • organizing sub-projects and removing sub-projects;
  • Developing Project use cases;
  • Defining and monitoring Project technical processes and interfaces with third party code and external projects including creating sub-committees or working groups to focus on cross-project technical issues and requirements;
  • Overseeing the Infrastructure Working Group other TSC working groups;
  • Appointing representatives to work with other open source or open standards communities;
  • Establishing community norms, workflows, issuing releases, and security issue reporting policies;
  • Approving and implementing policies and processes for contributing (to be published in the CONTRIBUTING file) and coordinating with other project committees to resolve matters or concerns that may arise as set forth in Section 7 of this Charter;
  • Engaging in discussions, seeking consensus, and where necessary, voting on technical matters relating to the code base that affect multiple projects;
  • Setting target dates for software development and testing;
  • Coordinating any marketing, events, or communications regarding the Project with the Manager of LF Projects and the Marketing Advisory Council of the LF Networking Fund of The Linux Foundation (“LFN”);
  • Establishing a vetting process for maintaining security and integrity of new and/or changed code base and documentation, including vetting for malicious code and spyware; and

Re: Coming Soon: A New URL for Gerrit

DW Talton
 

Hi Everyone,

The Gerrit migration is complete!

The existing Gerrit at review.opencontrail.org is set to read-only, so you can no longer commit to it.

The new Gerrit resides at https://gerrit.tungsten.io, and is identical to the old Gerrit as of the time of the migration. Everything should work the same as before, with the only change being the upstream origin URL.

  • Note: Jira issue linking is temporarily disabled on the new Gerrit as the Jira JWS callback URLs (likely) need to get updated by Juniper to reflect the new source URL.
  • Note: The new Gerrit is fully supported by The Linux Foundation, so if you have any issues, please open a support ticket at https://support.linuxfoundation.org


Thanks for you patience. I know this was a long time coming and that there may be a little more pain as we clean up from the migration, but we're very happy to have this onboarded on the LF!

REMINDER: Please Take the Intelligent Network and AI Survey by Jan 5 (LFN)

Brandon Wick
 

LFN Community Members:

The LFN End User Advisory Group (EUAG) recently created a new survey titled the "Intelligent Network and AI for Survey for Telecom Operators, Vendors and AI communities". The survey is designed to determine industry interest, readiness, priorities, scenarios, and methods for adopting intelligent networks using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML).

In order to gain a larger sample size and achieve a broader perspective across the industry, we are opening up this particular survey to the broader community. We'll forward this email to the LF Networking lists and feel free to share it with anyone in the ecosystem you feel would be appropriate. Respondent data will be parsed by the company type (network operator, vendor, systems integrator, etc.) Survey results will be made public and shared in Q1 2021. We hope you decide to take the survey and help enrich the known landscape of this exciting new phase in networking evolution. Please take the survey before Jan 5, 2021


Please let us know if you have any questions or comments and thank you!

Coming Soon: A New URL for Gerrit

DW Talton
 

Hi Everyone,

With a new year we are getting a new Gerrit, and soon you must switch to using the official Tungsten URL to access it:

https://gerrit.tungsten.io

The date for the final cutover is still TBD as it's dependent upon the final TF release of this year. Once the release is complete, the current Gerrit system at https://review.opencontrail.org/ will be set to read-only mode.

Note that during the move there will be a window of time that both Gerrit systems will be read-only.

Everything else will remain the same. However, if you are already working locally on a patch when the cutover happens, then you must modify the git remote origin before sending it up for review. Don't fret if you've never had to do this before, it's an easy change with a nice walk-through on how to do it here: https://devconnected.com/how-to-change-git-remote-origin/

More information to come as we get closer to release.

Cheers,
DW

TUTORIAL: Using Gerrit for Code Review

DW Talton
 

Hello everyone,

As we move closer to utilizing Gerrit more over the next few months, I thought it made sense to share the Linux Foundation's guide to using Gerrit. It's a simple, yet comprehensive, guide on all the important functions that a developer needs to do when interacting with Gerrit on a regular basis. I hope you find it as informative as I do (I still regularly reference it!)

https://docs.releng.linuxfoundation.org/en/latest/gerrit.html

Also, you can find information on all the other technology that the foundation uses here

REMINDER: FD.io Webinar Tomorrow, 9:00 AM PT on High-Performance IPsec

Brandon Wick
 

Details: September 17, 2020 | FD.io’s VPP Smashes the Barrier to Wide Scale Adoption of Inexpensive High-Performance IPsec | Audian Paxson & Neal Hartsell, Netgate; John DiGiglio, Intel; Jerome Tollet, Cisco | 

Description: The perimeter has disappeared. Apps are either born in the cloud, or moving there fast. And here in 2020, we now see massive work from home. Secure communications, specifically using IPsec, are more important than ever. But as connection counts and speeds rise, networking costs become budget busters. Major breakthroughs in software-based packet processing, specifically VPP, have shattered previously limited economics. This webinar sheds light on how VPP does what it does, the remarkable results it achieves, in both performance and price-performance.

As the voice of the end user, the EUAG supports the vision of ONAP and its adoption in the industry as well as contributes use cases and requirements to the project that deliver maximum value to the industry as a whole. The EUAG’s ONAP working group recently produced a survey and whitepaper, sharing views on the most important considerations, opportunities, and impediments towards a seamless end user adoption of ONAP. This webinar will cover the key considerations for consumption aspects of ONAP—what are the challenges, key concerns, models and references—as well as the opportunities for CSPs looking at projects like ONAP.
