Contributing to the openstack project
I have been busy at work for the past few weeks trying to get a big picture of how openstack works and how all these projects fit together. Especially my focus has been on the bare metal project ironic. I was reading the code and trying to get the dev environment working. In the process i noticed that the python-ironicclient wasn’t working properly as advertised. Immediately i filed a bug and posted a patch. To my surprise, this patch turned out to be my first contribution to the project.
Here is my first ever review request to the project https://review.openstack.org/#/c/131307 . So far it has been fun to read the code. and learn about new python stuff like ‘tox‘, ‘pbr‘, ‘eventlet and greenthreads‘. Thanks to Yahoo and the management team for letting me contribute. Thanks to ruby,deva, jroll, and all other reviewers for your excellent support! and reviews. I hope i can do more in the future.
