Why is the target release changed to OSP 13?
This plugin is still in implemeentation phase.
Note: Not yet upstream, RH concerned about capacity for OSP12, so moving to target Queen release (already done by MariaB).
Is this bug about https://github.com/collectd/collectd/pull/2000 ?
That pull request has been closed upstream without code merge.
This bugzilla has been removed from the release and needs to be reviewed and Triaged for another Target Release.
No probemn with this comment.
Investigation into different solution
Has this plugin added upstream?
Damien, is there a pull request for this feature upstream? Or is there a tracker to follow?
The design/implementation was refused, there is no pull request.
We are reviewing an inventory management solution.
This can be pushed to future release or deleted and I will create a new FR when ready
Damien, thank you for the update. I'll close this request then.
This FR should be closed
