Subject RE: [ACS41] Discuss CLOUDSTACK-2463 being resolved in 4.1 vs 4.2
Date Wed, 15 May 2013 15:10:44 GMT
Hi Chip,

If I could add my 10 cents worth.

I know of a number of potential CloudStack users who want to deploy CloudStack, but ONLY when
this feature is available as it is critical to their deployment plans.  One of them is actually
looking at OpenStack as an alternative!

What I am also confused about is that it has been in Citrix CloudPlatform since 3.0.6 release,
and has been improved in subsequent updates (2x patch releases)

If it is working in CloudPlatform, we should be able to get it into the CloudStack 4.1 release

Therefore I vote for option 1: Pull the feature into 4.1 and do the relevant testing

I am sure I can get some volunteers to help with testing, myself included.

Sebastian re-opened CLOUDSTACK-2463 due to users wanting to upgrade from 2.x to 4.1.  This
relates to the security groups feature being available when using VLANs in an advanced networking
zone.  This feature was apparently broken in the 3.x series, and is not slated to be reintroduced
until 4.2.

This is a horrible situation, and one that we've now encountered for a third time.

IMO, we have 2 very specific options:

1) We pull that new feature into 4.1, and do the relevant testing.

2) We do not pull that feature into 4.1, and release as is with a strong message in the release
notes highlighting that we know that 2.x to 4.1 will not support it (and state that those
users requiring the feature should wait for 4.2).

At this point, I don't have a preference.  We probably need to understand the effort for (1),
as well as understand who would do that work (dev AND testing).
