Likely this could be joined with http://summit.openstack.org/cfp/details/72 but I would like to focus more on the prototype that NTT and I have been working on and show the code and the architecture and discuss where to go from here to getting this code fully used throughout nova.
Talking points: * Current architecture and thoughts on the current and future architecture of state management and how the future provides more benefits than the current status-quo. * What has been prototyped and how far it has gotten. * State transitions & rollbacks. * Some fundamental changes that need to be applied... * How this relates to conductor effort? Does it? * What name to call this effort (people seem to get confused with anything call orchestration)? * Where this can go from here and other feedback... * State management in other components. * How to get from here to there. * How to help out!
Hopefully either code can be shown or even a demo of the prototyped code, depending on time allocated and how much time is free to show this. Mainly I would like to ensure the design that was prototyped is discussed, its benefits shown and get everyone on-board that this is the desired future way of doing things and get people involved in fixing up nova to make it be all it can be.
