Hi folks!

For the sake of cleaning up our project and avoiding confusion, I would like to propose deprecating and archiving the following repositories:

    To my knowledge, it is not used in Metal3, although it seems like CERN is experimenting with it independently. I'm reaching out to them to see if they want to take it over (and out of Metal3).

    Seems inactive. There is a new PR adding Ironic support to it, and I have concerns with it. May stay if we limit the scope to BMO and CAPM3? Anyone up for maintaining it?

    Was an experiment that hasn't led anywhere. This functionality probably belongs in node_exporter.


    Already deprecated (content moved into ironic-image). Should be archived.

Dmitry

Hi,

I'm +1. But as you already mentioned, there 2 PRs for the helm chart repo,
and during community meeting Maximilian Rink agreed to help maintaining
that repo with his some collogues. So, maybe we can keep that repo for now
until we decide with those open pull requests. But for the other repos, it makes
sense to me.

BR,
Feruz

Yeah, that really has to go. Has all of the CI stopped relying on it? I
remember at one point it was still referenced somewhere critical.

I agreed to that in the meeting, but Dmitry reviewed those PRs and it
looks like at least the Ironic deployment topology being proposed is
very un-Metal³-like. (It doesn't use Metal³'s ironic-image container,
and it enables RabbitMQ for spurious reasons.) So, on reflection, I
think it would be better if this were maintained outside the Metal³
project and we retire this repo.

I'm +1 for this.

+1 to this effort. l agree with Feruzjon, we can wait a bit regarding the helm chart repo.

Status update after the community meeting:

* https://github.com/metal3-io/ironic-hardware-inventory-recorder-image

I'll hold off until we hear from CERN about their plans.

* https://github.com/metal3-io/metal3-helm-chart

We agreed to wait a bit for any response to feedback on the open PRs.

* https://github.com/metal3-io/metal3-smart-exporter

I archived this one.

* https://github.com/metal3-io/ironic-prometheus-exporter

Could somebody add a commit that changes the README to point to the new
upstream location? Then I'll archive it.

* https://github.com/metal3-io/ironic-inspector-image

This already had a notice in the README that it would be removed after
June of this year, so I went ahead and archived it.

* https://github.com/metal3-io/base-image

Waiting for confirmation that nothing in CI is still relying on this.
