Hello Team:

I would like to understand the process/guidelines to release the cinder driver with the core release of openstack. What are the pre-requisites one needs to fulfill to be part of the core release? What are the minimum set of features a driver must support? From the page , I see that the minimum set of features and I also see that not all drivers which are release listed support these minimum set of features, so I'm looking at a clear answer or procedure required to be qualified to be a part of the core release? Please let me know.

Thanks, Parash

Any attempt to add a new driver to Cinder should commence by contacting the openstack-dev list (tagging [cinder] in the subject of your email) and outlining your proposal - or linking to an outline of it on .

With regards to the minimum requirements I believe many of the existing drivers were added prior to any minimums being set which accounts for the discrepancy you note. Cinder, and other OpenStack projects such as Nova, are moving to establish such minimums to clarify what's considered bare minimum functionality for a driver to ensure a somewhat consistent user experience baseline.
