General Work and Maintenance

From the Lustre project page in the Lustre issue tracker, we can see a dashboard for the project. On that page under the "Versions: Unreleased" section, there are links to future releases and all of the issues that are either targeted to be addressed in that release, or are already addressed for the release. Here is a shortcut to Lustre 2.9.0's issue summary page:

 Lustre 2.9.0 Issues

Any issue that contains "Lustre 2.9.0" in the "Fix Version/s" field of a ticket is intended to be fixed for version 2.9.0. The Lustre 2.9.0 Issues list is fluid, and will be updated on a continual basis as man power and perceived priorities change.

If you would like to own one or more tasks for the release but are not currently listed in the drop-down list of developers in JIRA then please email Peter Jones to get that setup

A convenience search filter is supplied for anyone looking for work that needs to be done for 2.9.0:
