The TC is leading an initiative to write down a vision for what OpenStack clouds could eventually look like - essentially interpreting the OpenStack Mission Statement at a level of detail that's sufficient to inform technical and governance decisions. You can read the current draft here: http://logs.openstack.org/05/592205/5/check/openstack-tox-docs/24a6785/html/reference/technical-vision.html Feedback from the technical community suggests to me that it's getting pretty close to accurately capturing what we thought we should have been building. However, there's obviously no point in developers doing this in isolation if the thing we describe isn't what actual or potential operators and users of OpenStack want. Thus, we're seeking feedback from the wider OpenStack community on the vision. There are a number of ways to get involved: * You can comment directly on the review https://review.openstack.org/592205 * Replies to this thread are also welcome. * There will be a brief presentation on this topic at the joint leadership meeting with the Board, UC, and TC in Berlin: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/12Nov2018BoardMeeting * Attend this Forum session at the Summit in Berlin where we'll be listening to feedback and discussing the next steps: https://www.openstack.org/summit/berlin-2018/summit-schedule/events/22818/vision-for-openstack-clouds-discussion I look forward to hearing from y'all :) thanks, Zane.
