If you're having trouble with the formatting, this release announcement is
available online https://blogs.rdoproject.org/2019/10/rdo-train-released/

The RDO community is pleased to announce the general availability of the
RDO build for OpenStack Train for RPM-based distributions, CentOS Linux and
Red Hat Enterprise Linux. RDO is suitable for building private, public, and
hybrid clouds. Train is the 20th release from the OpenStack project, which
is the work of more than 1115 contributors
<https://www.stackalytics.com/?metric=commits> from around the world.

The release is already available on the CentOS mirror network at
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/cloud/x86_64/openstack-train/. While we
normally also have the release available via
http://mirror.centos.org/altarch/7/cloud/ppc64le/ and
http://mirror.centos.org/altarch/7/cloud/aarch64/ – there have been issues
with the mirror network which is currently being addressed via

The RDO community project curates, packages, builds, tests and maintains a
complete OpenStack component set for RHEL and CentOS Linux and is a member
of the CentOS Cloud Infrastructure SIG. The Cloud Infrastructure SIG
focuses on delivering a great user experience for CentOS Linux users
looking to build and maintain their own on-premise, public or hybrid clouds.

All work on RDO and on the downstream release, Red Hat OpenStack Platform,
is 100% open source, with all code changes going upstream first.

PLEASE NOTE: At this time, RDO Train provides packages for CentOS7 only. We
plan to move RDO to use CentOS8 as soon as possible during Ussuri
development cycle so Train will be the last release working on CentOS7.

*Interesting things in the Train release include:*

   - Openstack Ansible
   <https://docs.openstack.org/openstack-ansible/latest/>, which provides
   ansible playbooks and roles for deployment, added murano
   <https://docs.openstack.org/murano/latest/> support and fully migrated
   to systemd-journald from rsyslog. This project makes deploying OpenStack
   from source in a way that makes it scalable while also being simple to
   operate, upgrade, and grow.
   - Ironic <https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Ironic>, the Bare Metal
   service, aims to produce an OpenStack service and associated libraries
   capable of managing and provisioning physical machines in a security-aware
   and fault-tolerant manner. Beyond providing basic support for building
   software RAID and a myriad of other highlights, this project now offers a
   new tool for building ramdisk images, ironic-python-agent-builder

*Other improvements include:*

   - Tobiko <https://tobiko.readthedocs.io/en/latest/> is now available
   within RDO! This project is an OpenStack testing framework focusing on
   areas mostly complementary to Tempest
   <https://docs.openstack.org/tempest/latest/>. While the tempest main
   focus has been testing OpenStack rest APIs, the main Tobiko focus would be
   to test OpenStack system operations while “simulating” the use of the cloud
   as the final user would. Tobiko’s test cases populate the cloud with
   workloads such as instances, allows the CI workflow to perform an operation
   such as an update or upgrade, and then runs test cases to validate that the
   cloud workloads are still functional.
   - Other highlights of the broader upstream OpenStack project may be read
   via https://releases.openstack.org/train/highlights.html.

*The Next Release Cycle*
At the end of one release, focus shifts immediately to the next, Ussuri,
which has an estimated GA the week of 11-15 May 2020. The full schedule is
available at https://releases.openstack.org/ussuri/schedule.html.

Twice during each release cycle, RDO hosts official Test Days
<http://rdoproject.org/testday/> shortly after the first and third
milestones; therefore, the upcoming test days are 19-20 December 2019 for
Milestone One and 16-17 April 2020 for Milestone Three.

*Get Started*
There are three ways to get started with RDO.

To spin up a proof of concept cloud, quickly, and on limited hardware, try
an All-In-One Packstack <http://rdoproject.org/install/packstack/>
installation. You can run RDO on a single node to get a feel for how it

For a production deployment of RDO, use the TripleO Quickstart
<http://rdoproject.org/tripleo/> and you’ll be running a production cloud
in short order.

Finally, for those that don’t have any hardware or physical resources,
there’s the OpenStack Global Passport Program
<https://www.openstack.org/passport/>. This is a collaborative effort
between OpenStack public cloud providers to let you experience the freedom,
performance and interoperability of open source infrastructure. You can
quickly and easily gain access to OpenStack infrastructure via trial
programs from participating OpenStack public cloud providers around the

*Get Help*

The #rdo channel on Freenode IRC is also an excellent place to find and
give help.

We also welcome comments and requests on the CentOS devel mailing list
<https://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-devel> and the CentOS and
TripleO IRC channels (#centos, #centos-devel, and #tripleo on
irc.freenode.net), however we have a more focused audience within the RDO
