The intent is to reduce or eliminate the patch by upstreaming the changes to Shaker, but this is dependent on the upstream Shaker project accepting the changes. The patch approach prevents this from being a blocker.
The Tungsten Fabric Gerrit is live at https://gerrit.tungsten.io/ but the project repositories are currently empty. We need to figure out how to handle the cutover from https://review.opencontrail.org without disrupting the build process (which depends heavily on cloning repos from URLs that are part of the build process.
OpenLab (performance test lab) discussion
We discussed the OpenLab config and Zhaoyan will work on identifying config file directories which we can make into Git repositories and upload to the Tungsten Fabric Gerrit. The initial plan will be for a cron job running in the OpenLab to pull one or more Git repos from Gerrit in order to update configuration before running tests.
We currently expect that performance tests will run as a nightly cron job
We need to identify where performance test results will be posted for public visibility. Zhaoyan thinks that it will be possible to have a web server in the OpenLab that is accessible from the Internet. If so, we'll identify a DNS name for it and point <something>.tungsten.io at it.
