The requirements for the blueprints to be included in release 5 are as follows:

Depending upon the situation, the PTLs are suggested to meet the following criteria - 

Class 1: The Blueprints moving from Release 4 to Release 5

If the blueprint is already part of release 4 and you want this to be included in release 5, please follow the following steps:

  • Did you make any improvements in release 5 - e.g. you fixed bugs or added additional features? 
    • If Yes: 
      • Does it impact the APIs or Documentation?
        • If yes,
          • Please update the APIs and the documentation and send the email to respective sub-committee chairs. 
          • For APIs, please see API Subcommittee Guidelines below
        • Run the security scans and upload the link in the table below next to your blueprint
        • Upload the latest CI/CD logs
        • Send an email to tsc@lists.akraino.org to notify the TSC 
        • Put yourself on the TSC agenda and request for the approval
    • If No:
      • No additional formalities are required
      • Send an email to tsc@lists.akraino.org to notify the TSC 
      • Put yourself on the TSC agenda and request for the approval

Class 2: The Blueprints moving from Release 3 to Release 5

If the blueprint is already part of release 3 and not release 4 and you want this to be included in release 5, please follow the following steps:

Note that in release 4, a new requirement was introduced to expose all the API consumed and offered by your blueprint. 

  • Please update the documentation to include new API section.
  • Follow the guidelines to submit API information as per the requirements specified in the API sub-committee
  • send the email to respective documentation and API sub-committee lists.
    • If you require assistance with documentation or APIs, please reach out the respective subcommittee to be included on their agenda and discuss with them otherwise you are done
    • For APIs, please see API Subcommittee Guidelines below
  • Run the security scans and upload the link in the table below next to your blueprint
  • Upload the latest CI/CD logs
  • Send an email to tsc@lists.akraino.org to notify the TSC 
  • Put yourself on the TSC agenda and request for the approval

Class 3: The Blueprints moving from Release 2 or earlier to Release 5

If the blueprint is already part of release 1 or 2 and not release 3 or 4 and you want this to be included in release 5, please follow the following steps described under Class 4 below.

Class 4: New Blueprints being introduced for the first time in Release 5

Please follow the requirements specified in release 4 with the following exceptions:

  1. The sub-committee presentations are optional starting from release 5 and for your benefit only. If you require assistance on any of the areas such as APIs, documentation, Security scans or CI/CD logs, please schedule a meeting with appropriate subcommittee. 
  2. For APIs, please see API Subcommittee Guidelines below
  3. Once you meet the requirements of respective subcommittee, please send them an email to notify them. Except for APIs, as noted in 2., if they require any clarification, they will either invite you to meet with them or they will approve your blueprint via email.
  4. Send an email to tsc@lists.akraino.org to notify the TSC 
  5. Put yourself on the TSC agenda and request for the approval

API Subcommittee Guidelines

Please follow step-by-step instructions on the API Subcommittee API reporting wiki page. If after submitting your API info form (or an updated form, if you are in Class 1 and the form has changed since Release 4) and notifying the subcommittee by e-mail they have questions, then schedule a time when either subcommittee members may attend your weekly BP meeting or you can attend the API subcommittee weekly meeting in order to discuss and resolve the questions. When meeting, please be prepared with architecture and data flow diagrams so the API subcommittee can understand and confirm 1) APIs consumed and offered by your BP, 2) upstream project APIs, and 3) customer-facing demo APIs. This information will be used to update the Akraino website API Map, which makes your BP visible and searchable to customers and entities outside of Akraino, so completeness and accuracy is important.
