How to get a cross-project feature landed in OpenStack

SeaGL 2017

A little over two years ago, I was told in a Vancouver conference center meeting room, “Two others have tried to propose that feature, but they have both failed”. I knew it was the right path to take. I knew people in the room and the larger community wanted to go in that direction. The question was how?

In this this talk, I’ll cover my experience building consensus on design, setting expectations across the community, and rallying people together to reach critical mass to land a complex cross project feature in a project such as OpenStack.
