Install openstack from upstream source repositories
Be able to deploy the very latest distribution of OpenStack from upstream
master. This is to provide community developers a way to deploy their own
additional changes through an easy to use deployment technology (i.e. Fuel).
- The idea behind that feature is to allow customers to compile OpenStack
packages during a Fuel ISO build on the fly, both RPM and DEB versions.
- Customers may use spec files either from our public Gerrit, or from their
own local/remote git repos.
Changes will include:
- New configuration entries to fuel-main/config.mk
- New subroutines for our make system that will build RPM and DEB packages
by using configuration entries from fuel-main/config.mk
Other end user impact
- Additional options to the “make iso” command allow user to customize
external sources to build OpenStack components from.
By using this feature to build multiple custom OpenStack components, the total
ISO build time could be significantly higher than “vanilla” Fuel ISO one.
Other deployer impact
The fuel-main/config.mk will contain the following new parameters:
- BUILD_OPENSTACK_PACKAGES - contains comma-separated list of OpenStack
components to build, or “0” otherwise
Per each of OpenStack components, the following list of parameters is defined
(using Neutron as an example):
These values will take effect only if BUILD_OPENSTACK_PACKAGES parameter
contains a name of respective OpenStack component, i.e.:
It is possible to build specific OpenStack components only, by using make
command with the target component parameter, i.e.:
- Primary assignee:
- Vitaly Parakhin
- Implement building RPM packages from master
- Produce the specs for building RPM from master
- Implement building DEB packages from master
- Produce the specs for building DEB from master
The following tests should be performed:
- Building all OpenStack components from master using our specs
- Deployment tests for an ISO with customized OpenStack components
The existing deployment tests are adequate for testing customized ISO.
- Each of OpenStack components could be built from master using our specs
- Deployment of simple multinode OpenStack succeeds
- Diagnostic snapshot works
- Health Check works
A note should be added to Fuel User Guide to describe the possibility to build
custom OpenStack components from upstream source repositories during ISO build.
