[openstack-dev] What's Up, Doc? 17 June 2016

0 votes

Hi everyone,

This week I've very pleased to announce that we have our first project-specific Install Guide published! Petr Kovar got Heat over the line in first place, and it's looking great: http://docs.openstack.org/project-install-guide/orchestration/draft/index.html Well done Petr, and of course all the wonderful docs people who helped us get to this point. We're also expecting to see Trove published very soon. I've been using the lessons learned from these early projects to flesh out our instructions a little more, so it should be even easier for projects to get their Install Guides up and running. We still need to create the central index, but it's all starting to come together now.

I'm also excited to announce that, for the very first time, we have a specific Ops Cross-Project Liaison. Please welcome Robert Starmer to the CPL family :)

== Training Guides/Labs Core Team Changes ==

We've adjusted the training guides and labs core teams so that speciality team leads are core in their own repos, and the docs core team is an 'included group' in both repos. This is intended to stop the core teams for these groups drifting out of date too quickly. Note that it is expected that docs cores will not be the primary reviewers/mergers for training repos, but are there as backup in case extra eyes are needed. That responsibility will continue to lie with the training teams themselves, as they know the codebase the best.

You can see the updated core team lists here:
Training Guides: https://review.openstack.org/#/admin/groups/uuid-3490bf37012cb344104cb315f3dd5c76dabea62f,members
Training Labs: https://review.openstack.org/#/admin/groups/1118,members

== Site Stats ==

During May the top viewed book was the Mitaka Ubuntu Install Guide, followed closely by the Mitaka RDO Install Guide. Rolling into third place was the Admin Guide.

Also, apologies for an error I made in this section last week. The correct number for the total number of views in May was 2,365,626.
