- Deployment on Intel NUC w/ single interface
     - https://lists.starlingx.io/pipermail/starlingx-discuss/2023-February/013875.html
     - Action: Greg to respond
- StarlingX Support on ARM
     - https://lists.starlingx.io/pipermail/starlingx-discuss/2023-February/013819.html
     - Not currently supported on StarlingX, but should be more doable with the move to Debian and the yocto kernel
     - ARM Support would definitely require work to support, including build system support
     - A few years ago MarkA and Greg did some prototype work on orange-pie
     - MarkA responded to the thread: https://lists.starlingx.io/pipermail/starlingx-discuss/2023-February/013841.html
     - Status: Watch List; will leave on the community list for a few more weeks
           - Mar 1: No further responses since Mark's response on Feb 14.
- stx-openstack apply failed after enabling cpu_dedicated_setInbox
     - https://lists.starlingx.io/pipermail/starlingx-discuss/2023-January/013720.html
     - https://lists.starlingx.io/pipermail/starlingx-discuss/2023-January/013724.html
     - Seen w/ stx.7.0. Issue only happens when setting cpu dedicated CPUs on a running system. During the unlock, the openstack fails to re-apply.
     - LP: https://bugs.launchpad.net/starlingx/+bug/2002157
