Don’t worry, the discussion is still very active. But yes, we still are planning to incorporate ironic using metal kubed. A driver for that to reduce the amount of custom code that Airship needs to drive provisioning – in the target state, the plan is metal kubed + cluster API will care for,
* Ironic-based machine provisioning
* Kubeadm-based cluster management
* Declarative interfaces for the above
Like you said, this does present a chicken and egg problem around using a k8s cluster to provision a k8s cluster. We’re designing for that now – in some use cases an ephemeral cluster can be spun up, and in some there would be a centralized management cluster (we call this “cloud harbor”) already. We have notes, draft design docs, and design meeting recordings if you’re interested, https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/Airship_OpenDesignDiscussions
and you’re most welcome to join the design discussion as well (times listed on our wiki https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Airship)

Hi there everyone,
Is airship still interested in incorporating openstack ironic for deployments? While metal kubed and cluster-api are cool, this simply increases the dependencies to run airship to begin with doesn’t it? It functionally assumes that you already have kubernetes available just to deploy a new kubernetes environment. Am I missing something critical here?
Sorry in advance for being late to the discussion.
