here is a list of topics which I believe people are interested in
writing papers on. I'm listing names of those who I think are
interested in writing them. Sorry if I leave anyone off of a topic
they're interested in. However it seems to me it would be best if we
can agree on one person or two people to drive each topic, so everyone
doesn't sit around expecting someone else to submit the abstract.
Am I missing any?
I will submit for a 1-day mini-summit. Some interesting
remaining topics for the mini-summit would include device
namespaces, ttys and syslog, and lots of checkpoint/restart.
Does anyone think we don't need one of these at ols? Or that
Is anyone interested in organizing the summit - coming out
with an agenda, sending out announcements, etc - either
alone or with my help?
pidns: (Pavel and Suka)
I've heard it called a tutorial, though I think some of the
technical details are interesting in and of themselves. Its
also an important area to make sure other developers - i.e
people working with flocks or kthreads - understand.
netns: denis driving, daniel, benjamin
namespaces status: Pavel and Cedric
There was no ns status update last year it may be of
interest. Instead of a separate pidns paper, pidns could
also be mentioned here.
namespace entering: Cedric and serge?
This *probably* isn't enough for a full paper. So it could
go under namespace status paper. But there is quite a bit
to say just by listing the existing proposed solutions (at
least 4 I can think of offhand) and their shortcomings.
memory c/r: Dave Hansen, serge interested
I suspect many people on this list have their own ideas on
how to go about the checkpoint and restart. I suppose they
could each write their own paper, or work together on a single
combined paper laying out the possibilities
user namespace approaches: serge
cgroups and containers: Paul Menage driving?, Balbir?
A cgroups update could either be its own paper or joined
with the namespaces status paper.
Paul were you considering a separate paper to discuss
the cgroups and namespace management as laid out in
your Sep 03 2007 email "Thoughts on Namespace / Subsystem
