About Juno EL6 effort

Juno EL6 effort has been start by the community to provide RDO users an easy way to roll upgrades for their running installation. We focus on the compute/metering part and wanted the ability to keep hypervisors running on EL6 OS.

All dependencies are available through the provided RDO repository and EPEL is not required for the upgrade.

An effort to provide openstack-neutron is being worked on to provide RDO users a way to migrate from nova-network during the Juno cycle and before the Kilo upgrade.

If you are interested in rebuilding other parts or if you want to contribute please Get involved !


The community will follow Openstack "Juno" release cycle and provide updates in a timely manner. We will link to a more concrete timeline when we have the documents ready.

There is no plan to provide EL6 rebuild of Openstack "Kilo" at this time.
