The Project Teams Gathering (PTG) is where the OpenStack Foundation technical teams meet to work on the next release.

About this Event

The Project Teams Gathering (PTG) is an event organized by the OpenStack Foundation. It provides meeting facilities allowing the various technical community groups working with OpenStack (user workgroups, development teams, operators, SIGs) to meet in-person, exchange and get work done in a productive setting. It lets those various groups discuss their priorities for the upcoming cycle, assign work items, iterate quickly on solutions for complex problems, and make fast progress on critical issues. The co-location of those various meetings, combined with the dynamic scheduling of the event, make it easy to get specific people in the same room to discuss a specific topic, or participate in multiple team meetings. Evenings allow for relationship building and problem sharing.

The June Project Teams Gathering is going virtual since it is critical to producing the next release. The virtual event will be held from Monday, June 1 to Friday, June 5.

Helpful Things to Know During the PTG Week:


The main form of synchronous communication between attendees during the PTG is on IRC. If you are not on IRC, learn how to get started here.

The main PTG IRC channel is #openstack-ptg on Freenode. It's used to interact with the PTGbot, and Foundation staff will be present to help answer questions.


The PTGbot is an open source tool that PTG track moderators use to surface what's currently happening at the event.

Track moderators will send messages to the bot via IRC, and from that information the bot publishes a webpage with several sections of information:

- The discussion topics currently discussed in the room ("now")

- An indicative set of discussion topics coming up next ("next")

- The schedule for the day with available extra slots you can book

Learn more about the ptgbot via the documentation here.
