OpenStack consists of a number services for running IaaS clouds. They are the Object Store (Swift), Compute (Nova) and Image (Glance) services.

OpenStack is to be promoted as a Fedora 16 Feature.

This page tracks Fedora Cloud SIG's effort to include OpenStack packages in Fedora.

Getting Started

See Getting started with OpenStack Nova for details on how to try out the OpenStack packages on Fedora 16.


Package Reviews


Prepare for F16 test day:

Notable bugs:


  • Dashboard
  • Quantum
  • VNC console/ajaxterm
  • See also the "to package" list below

Integration with Aeolus:

  • Deltacloud driver for OpenStack 1.1 API
  • Image factory support for uploading to OpenStack

Misc project ideas:

  • Fedora package builds of trunk in upstream's CI system
  • Image building service based on Oz
  • Use libguestfs for file injection
  • Use Qpid instead of RabbitMQ


Rather than recommending users to download pre-built Ubuntu images in Getting_started_with_OpenStack Nova, we should have a set of official Fedora images like Cloud_SIG/EC2_Images. These should be built using similar process to the EC2 images.

For now, we can suggest users build Fedora images using Oz.

To Package

  1. python-nova-adminclient - a Python library for Nova's admin API
  2. tempo - a cron service; will be required by Nova in the Essex release
  3. noVNC - a HTML5 VNC client
  4. openstack-dashboard - self service web UI for OpenStack (now known as Horizon)
  5. openstack-melange - network information service (will be part of openstack-nova?)
  6. openstack-reddwarf - database as a service (will be part of openstack-nova?
  7. openstack-burrow - message queue
  8. crowbar - OpenStack deployment service and chef wrapper


OpenStack in EPEL

All of the packages require python-sphinx. These all need at least this adjustment for EL6:

-BuildRequires:    python-sphinx
+%{?fedora:BuildRequires:    python-sphinx >= 1.0}
+%{?el6:BuildRequires:    python-sphinx10}

and to use sphinx-1.0-build instead of sphinx-build.
