When someone hears that Rackspace deploys from OpenStack trunk into a production cloud environment, there are generally lots of questions (and sideways glances at the perceived insanity.) In this session, we'll address both the business strategy behind this approach and begin a deeper conversation with the OpenStack Community.

Talk Outline:

Business Strategy
- What does an trunk deployment look like (branch management, merge conflicts, etc)? Why does Rackspace deploy OpenStack from trunk into production?
- What are the benefits gained going this route vs using an official release candidate? What makes keeping up with trunk difficult?

Community Engagement
- What does having the largest OpenStack deployment running within weeks of trunk give back to the Community?
- How can embracing this strategy help make OpenStack a better project for all deployers? What innovation and collaboration will we be able to foster in the next release cycle? We'll address these questions and others!
