Contributor Summit - KubeCon 2017

Cloud Native Design/Refactoring across Kubernetes

*Lead: Joe Beda(*@jbeda)*

*Co-lead: Amit Kumar Jaiswal(*@AMIT_GKP)*


Explore how to cleanly support cloud-native behaviors, such as standardized Kubernetes logs, injectable configuration and common queryable APIs in Kubernetes components. While this discussion isn’t only about containers, orchestrating OpenStack deployment/management within Kubernetes via OpenStack-Helm or Kolla-Kubernetes paves the way for better upgrade capabilities. They will also improve the ability to run individual Kubernetes services independently or in combination with other adjacent technologies.

** **- We’re looking for someone to help us out on issues related to refactoring across Kubernetes like Issues#51405, #46735, #54090, #55151

- Consolidating volume util files like *pkg/volume/util.go, pkg/volume/util/util.go, pkg/volume/util/volumehelper/volumehelper.go *[need better documentation of each file is to emcompass]

- Enhancing e2e tests to track cloud provider’s API Quotas

- Like changing fluentd to use CRI log Path and eventually deprecates the old container path

- Issues with deploying/adopting Kubernetes for specific applications use-cases


- Security and granularity across Kubernetes

- Kube API issues like it should not depend on *--cloud-provider* and *--cloud-config*

- Helping us out with API documentation and Configuring Best Practices?

- What are the new tools to deal with testing frameworks for NFV/SDN across Kubernetes?

- Kubelet Flag subfields precedence v/s files/ConfigMaps to Kubelet Config

- How to dynamically provision an AWS EBS volume from a snapshot?

- Work around Object definition in OpenAPI schema like definition of the *PersistentVolumeSpec, PersistenceVolumeClaimSpec*

- Work around support for FUSE client for K8s cephfs.
