Minutes

Discussion - Enabling platform maturity, stability, modularity, and robustness 

  • A SPC KPI exists that asked that we measure the maturity of all the LFN projects
  • Catherine Lefevre Jason/Chaker has shared the project lifecycle with the TAC that includes maturity assessments - perhaps a year ago - review and revitalize 
    • Looking to build common criteria cross-projects and have the LFN TAC make the assessment during project reviews
  • Brian Freeman Should have non-ONAP folks review the SP3 approach from ONAP
  • Ed Warnicke  Security surface areas are totally different between ONAP and FD.io by virtue of where they reside in the stack - so we need project specific objectives for these factors
  • Ed Warnicke Believes that the Board should not be implementing KPIs for Projects, just the LFN because KPIs do no provide value to shipping a product.
  • Brian Freeman KPIs cannot be shared across projects, categories might be the same, but metrics may be different
    • Ask the projects what their metrics are for those categories AND determine which ones make sense for the project
  • Next steps: Launch email discussion LFN PMs


Introduction to XGVela


Discussion - CNTT future mode of operations 

  • Scot Steele Reviewed the status of CNTT and the shift away from a task-force to some more sustainable structure and decision making process
    • Option 1: CNTT become a LFN project
    • Option 2: CNTT as a committee of the LFN GB
    • Option 3: Merge CNTT into OPNFV
  • Ed Warnicke Needs of an SDO are different than an open source project - eg. IP handling, ratification of standard

Action items

  • Casey Cain Launch email to discuss the assessment of project maturity. 17 Jul 2020
