Please check how the linter is working against your PRs. Both pull-kubernetes-linter-hints and pull-kubernetes-verify-strict-lint running on submit. Right now the latter is non-blocking, but it will change, so please report any times you see it failing to #k8s-code-organization.

Test jobs have been switched to running only external cloud providers, since that’s the default. Check if this breaks your tests.

KEP of the Week

KEP-2681: Field status.hostIPs added for Pod

KEP-2681 adds the status.hostIPs pod field, which coexists with the singular status.hostIP field. It shows both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses for smoother migration during the dual-stack transition phase. This also lets Kubernetes distinguish between the HostIP that is in use (if any), and the list of IPs that are potentially available.

This KEP was created by Shiming Zhang and received the alpha milestone in v1.28.

Other Merges

Test Cleanup: Mock tests for Windows Kube-proxy, WaitForPodsResponding, StorageClass endpoints, DRA test flake, golangci-lint, stop using framework.ExpectEqual, PodGC unit tests
