Mahamed Ali is planning to replace kube-up with kops for the E2E testing framework, mostly because kube-up is unmaintained.

Antonio Ojea points out that there are some race conditions around Node IPs caused by the migration to external cloud providers. He proposes a change to readiness to mitigate this, but probably more is needed.

Release Schedule

Next Deadline: Enhancements Freeze, October 6th

John Belamaric also clarified that PRR Freeze means answering all the PRR questions, not having them approved yet.

KEP of the Week

KEP-3705: Cloud Dual-Stack –node-ip Handling

This KEP proposes to add dual-stack --node-ip support to kubelet for clusters using a cloud provider. Currently it is only supported by bare metal clusters. This would allow admins of clusters on a cloud provider to override both node IPs on a node in a dual stack cluster. Currently if you pass --cloud-provider to kubelet, it expects --node-ip to either be unset or a single IP address. This KEP will allow comma separated dual-stack values for --node-ip in clusters using non-legacy cloud providers.

This KEP is targeting beta milestone in the upcoming v1.29 release is authored by Dan Winship
