Hi all, Just wanted to share a few notes and a brief summary of what happened in Denver last week, during the Project Team Gathering, in docs and i18n shared sessions.
We had a fairly good attendance of 5 to 15 ppl during the first two days. A number of people primarily working on other projects showed up in our sessions to chat about common issues and plans. On the other hand, many of our cores couldn't attend, though I'm hoping if PTG comes closer to Europe, the attendance will improve. On a related note, we also welcomed new cores to the team and the Denver PTG was an opportunity for some of us to meet face to face for the first time. The overall schedule for all our sessions with some comments can be found at https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/docs-i18n-ptg-queens, there's also https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/doc-future-problems with a more detailed discussion of some of the items. To summarize what I found most important: VISION We spent a lot of time discussing a new vision document for the docs team, based on the updated docs team mission statement (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/499556/). A working draft is available here: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/docs-i18n-ptg-queens-mission-statement In the coming weeks, we'll transform those notes into a final draft and share it with the broader community for input. The next step after this would be to update/rework https://governance.openstack.org/tc/reference/tags/docs_follows-policy.html. EOL DOCS AVAILABILITY Discussed addressing numerous issues related to publishing EOL docs and our docs retention policy, based on community feedback and many requests. The plan is to write a retention policy docs spec, resurrect Mitaka docs and add badges to clearly identify unsupported content, among other things. HA GUIDE Work will continue on the guide per the previous plans. ARCHITECTURE GUIDE From Pike, this guide is frozen. Patches still welcome. OPENSTACK-MANUALS BUGS To be moved to appropriate projects, if applicable. CONFIG DOCS Discussed with several teams, particularly cinder, how to generate config tables using oslo_config.sphinxext. REDESIGNING DOCS SITE A couple of improvements to adjust the site content structure and overall design was discussed, such as tweaking lists of projects, linking from series subpages back to the top page, install vs. deployment pages, linking to projects with no stable branches, redoing our sitemap, switching to SCSS, improving HTML semantics, etc. DOCS TOOLING Doug kindly offered the team and the community to give a presentation about updated docs tooling: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/doc-tool-lunch-and-learn We'll turn this into a proper doc and share with everybody. INSTALL GUIDES TESTING A couple of people and teams showed interest in testing the Pike install guides (common content + minimal deployment services). To track this activity, we'll use this wiki page: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Documentation/PikeDocTesting TRANSLATIONS Discussed generating multiple PO files for docs migrated to project repos, to make translators' lives easier. THAT'S IT? Please add to the list if I missed anything important, particularly for i18n. Thank you to everybody who attended the sessions, and in particular to Alex who took most of the notes. I think this PTG was very productive, full of energy, and intense!
