This session will include the following subject(s):
Bare Metal Testing:
Discussion around testing full-bare metal deploys on every commit. We've got a lot of other stuff figured out at this point, and we got bare metal stuff in nova for grizzly - we need to test it, and test using it.
(Session proposed by Monty Taylor)
refstack - a description of an OpenStack cloud:
Recent discussions around FITS testing led to the idea of a thing called "refstack", which would allow us to describe and deploy a reference OpenStack against which we can test. There have been some discussions on implementation, with the leading contended being a heat template which has a clear api contract with the nodes it's creating and the metadata it's going to pass them, such that various technologies (chef, puppet, juju) could be designed to expect the same per-node metadata. However, we should probably actually talk about that in person.
