Branch Package Builds

If you want to try out the latest updates to stable branches, we are delivering continuously integrated packages on each upstream commit in the following PPA’s:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openstack-ubuntu-testing/mitaka
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openstack-ubuntu-testing/ocata
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openstack-ubuntu-testing/pike
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openstack-ubuntu-testing/queens

bear in mind these are built per-commitish (30 min checks for new commits at the moment) so ymmv from time-to-time.

Reporting bugs

If you run into any issues please report bugs using the ‘ubuntu-bug’ tool:

sudo ubuntu-bug nova-conductor

this will ensure that bugs get logged in the right place in Launchpad.

Thank you to all who contributed to OpenStack Queens and Ubuntu Bionic both upstream and in Debian/Ubuntu packaging!
