[placement] update 19-∞
Let's call this placement update 19-â??, as this will be my last one.
It's been my pleasure to provide this service for nearly [three
I hope it has been as useful to others as it has been for me. The
goal all along was to provide some
[stigmergic](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stigmergy) structures to
augment how we, the placement team, collaborated.
I guess it worked: yesterday we released a candidate that
will likely become the Train version of placement. The first version
where the only placement you can get is from its own repo/project.
Thanks to everyone who has made this possible over the years.
# Most Important
Tetsuro will be the next placement PTL. He and Gibi are working on
the project update and other Summit/PTG-related activities for
Shanghai. If you have thoughts on that, please contact them.
The [now worklist](https://storyboard.openstack.org/#!/worklist/754)
I made a couple weeks ago has had some progress, but some tasks
remain. None of them were critical for the release, except perhaps
the ongoing need for better documentation of how to most effectively
use the service.
Since we're expecting the Ussuri release to be one where we
consolidate how other services make use of placement, most of the
items on that list can fit well with that.
We should be on the lookout for bugs reported by people trying to
the release candidate(s).

# Main Themes
## Consumer Types
Adding a type to consumers will allow them to be grouped for various
purposes, including quota accounting.
No one had the time to address the fix ups for this before Train
was cut, so consumer types will be a part of Ussuri. If anyone is
available to adopt this, please let me and/or tssurya know.
Cleanup is an overarching theme related to improving documentation,
performance and the maintainability of the code. The changes we made
this cycle are fairly complex to use and were fairly complex to
write. We need to make sure, with the coming cycle, that we help
people use them well.

# Other Service Users
Since we're in RC period I'll not bother listing pending changes.
During Ussuri the placement team hopes to be available to
facilitate other projects using the service. Keeping track of those
is what this section has been trying to do. Besides general
awareness of what's going on, I've also used [this gerrit
to find things that might be related to placement.
