Hi everyone,

I don't usually forward announcements for BALUG meetings since I
assume folks who are in San Francisco and interested are subscribed to
their announce list, but since I've had a lot of chats lately with
team members about OpenStack and how we manage our fleet of Ubuntu
servers that runs the OpenStack infrastructure I figured I'd pass this
along. I'm doing a talk about it tomorrow night in SF's Chinatown and
you're welcome to join us!

For our 2013-10-15 BALUG meeting, we're proud to present:

Elizabeth Krumbach Joseph[1] on Code Review for Systems Administrators

The OpenStack project uses a public code review system
and automated series of unit and integration tests before merging to
confirm that code submitted is adhering to project standards and
doesn't cause problems for other software in the stack.

The OpenStack Infrastructure team not only manages this system using
all open source tools, like Gerrit and Jenkins for review and testing,
but also uses the system themselves for reviewing and testing changes
being made to systems running the infrastructure itself. Puppet
configuration files, Python scripts and more are subjected to
automated syntax tests and then collaboratively reviewed in public by
community and core team members alike before approval.

This talk will give you a walk through of the actual software used to
accomplish this and how this process has allowed the team to have a
considerably open, collaborative approach to systems administration
for the project infrastructure.

Elizabeth Krumbach Joseph is an Automation and Tools Engineer at
HP[2] working on the OpenStack Infrastructure[3] team.  She is also a
member of the Ubuntu Community Council[4] and on the Board of
Directors for Partimus[5], a non-profit in the San Francisco Bay Area
providing Linux-based computers to schools in need.

Well, don't worry we won't turn you away, but the RSVPs really help
BALUG and the Four Seas Restaurant plan the meal and meeting, and with
