Hi everyone,

I'm very pleased to announce that we finally have a name for our M
release: Mitaka (三鷹)! Accordingly, the Tokyo Summit for the Mitaka
release is only just over 100 days away. CFP closed a couple of days
ago, and I've noticed that the first round of ATC discount codes have
gone out. If you haven't got yours yet, then keep patching Liberty and
sit tight. The discount codes will come out in stages after every
snapshot. This week, we've had some great discussions about networking
scenarios in the Install Guide, and the best way to include RST files in
our newly converted books. We also have both the HA Guide and the Cloud
Admin Guide conversions in their final stages, and the Install Guide
conversion sprint coming up. Very exciting!

== Progress towards Liberty ==

== RST Migration ==

The next books we are focusing on for RST conversion are the Install
Guide, Cloud Admin Guide, HA Guide, and the Security Guide. If you would
like to assist, please get in touch with the appropriate speciality team:

For books that are now being converted, don't forget that any change you
make to the XML must also be made to the RST version until conversion is
complete. Our lovely team of cores will be keeping an eye out to make
sure loose changes to XML don't pass the gate, but try to help them out
by pointing out both patches in your reviews.

== Install Guide RST Conversion Sprint ==

In order to kick off the RST conversion of the Install Guide, the
speciality team have decided to run a virtual conversion sprint over two
days on July 22-24. For more information, see the
wiki page, and the etherpad.

== HA Guide Works ==

With the RST conversion on the HA Guide wrapping up, the HA Guide
speciality team are looking for people to help out with the
reorganisation and writing the new content. They have quite a few bugs
to get through, and they need your help! Contact Matt Griffin, or any
other member of the HA Guide Speciality Team, or join their weekly IRC
meeting. Details here:

== Docs Tools ==

Last week, we released openstackdocstheme 1.1.0, see
The main new features in this release are improvements for bug
reporting, variable lists like the glossary are now indented, and
next/prev links are now icons on the upper right part of the page.

Additionally, the stable/icehouse branch of openstack-manuals has been
EOLed, no further updates will be done from it. For more information, see

== Doc team meeting ==

The next meetings are:

APAC: Wednesday 22 July, 00:30:00 UTC
US: Wednesday 29 July, 14:00:00 UTC

Please go ahead and add any agenda items to the meeting page here:

== Spotlight bugs for this week ==

We've now got people assigned to work on last week's old bugs, which is
great! Here are three more rusty old bugs that could use some love: Using policies
for protected properties Add
notifications for groups and roles Xenapi: Allow
windows builds with xentools 6.1 and 6.2

Remember, if you have content you would like to add to this newsletter,

Keep on doc'ing!
