Whether you want to build the software, run it, grow the community or just learn more about it, there will be content, workshops and design sessions for you to attend at the OpenStack Summit, Oct 15-18 in San Diego. Stick around Friday for the first OpenStack service day, a 1/2 day beach cleanup.
As Nova moves towards the goal of being highly available and supporting database failover, I believe there needs to be a consistent paradigm in place for all database operations which will work with existing open-source MySQL HA tools. I will highlight examples of how Nova's present handling of transaction state, rollback, and row uniqueness is, in some cases and in my opinion, not conducive to this goal. Then I will open the floor for discussion.
