Eirini in 2019 CFAR certification requirements

Troy Topnik

Eirini is coming, and a number of us are keen to see Kubernetes-native app scheduling in CFAR distributions as soon as possible. Ideally we would like these distributions to be certified by the CF Foundation when they are released.

We recognize that Eirini is still in incubation, but it’s getting closer to feature parity with Diego every day. The Cloud Foundry acceptance tests (CATs) are almost all passing, and are expected to be fully passing by the time the certification requirements are released, but the 2019 requirements are currently being drafted.

So I’d like to propose including Eirini as an alternative CFAR scheduler, assuming it will be passing the relevant tests by the time of certification.

My suggestion is a one line change to the Application Runtime section of the certification requirements:

The Application Runtime portion of a certified offering must include the following components:

There are likely more changes coming in this section from other projects, but this would be the diff from the 2018 certification requirements.

Obviously, this is a matter for discussion with the wider community and of course the PMC Council, so let’s start the discussions here on cf-dev and expose all the questions and concerns.
