Subject [jira] [Commented] (DTACLOUD-563) openstack driver lacks firewall and addresses functionality
Date Tue, 09 Jul 2013 06:57:49 GMT


Marios Andreou commented on DTACLOUD-563:

Ikka - thanks for the review - I just cut and pushed version 1.1.1 of the ruby-openstack rubygem

I'm not sure how to proceed - there is currently some work under way to convert the Deltacloud
OpenStack driver to using the fog rubygem instead of ruby-openstack - for a variety of reasons,
one of which is the lack of time to actively maintain ruby-openstack given my new commitments.
We have a Deltacloud community call this Thursday to discuss this - it may be useful for you
to join if you'd like to find out more or see how you can contribute. I believe the people
working on that are doing so for the same reasons you are, i.e. firewalls and elastic IP management
for the OpenStack driver.

Announcement of the community call is at
and the call itself will be held at

thanks! marios

> We are implementing a service that connects to different clouds via deltacloud. We run
to an issue that we can't handle security groups and floating addresses via deltacloud. The
feature is missing, see the irclog for background with marios:

> <ikke-t> "The required capability to execute this operation is missing"
> <marios> ikke-t: hi - yeah looks like they aren't implemented yet
> <ikke-t> this seems to be a bit behind of upstream: deltacloud-core-1.1.2-3.fc18.noarch
> <ikke-t> any idea if upstream has them, mario?
> <ikke-t> release notes doesn't mention them
> <marios> ikke-t: no, that's what i meant, they aren't implemented at all yet for
the openstack driver
> <ikke-t> ok. would you know if anyone is actively developing the deltacloud-openstack
> <ikke-t> if there would be e.g. blueprint or similar for the features
> <ikke-t> perhaps ec2 driver would have them, and it could be used towards openstack?
> <marios> ikke-t: so i don't know of someone currently working on that. the ec2
driver has firewalls. but one problem i believe is that the ruby-openstack rubygem doesn't
currently have firewall support so it will need to be added there. if this is something you
can work on, please go ahead. otherwise can you please file a jira request for that and i
or someone else will get to it asap.
