Bug squash day worked well on 9/9 -- squashing and triaging bugs, bringing the openstack-manuals backlog to about 400, with 50 in progress even now! The openstack-api-site backlog went to about 200 with 15 in progress. We also had some fairly new docs contributors join in -- thank you everyone who helped out.
__In review and merged this past week__ This week was about bug squashing! __High priority doc work__ Install Guide testing starts in earnest once packages are available and with feature freeze this should be in the next week or so. We've been keeping up with both CLI and config reference patches at milestone releases. __Ongoing doc work__ The separate Networking Guide is still ongoing. Nick Chase has been interviewing contractors to pick up the work that still needs to be done, thank you Nick. Shaun McCance has moved to other contracts, thank you Shaun for your efforts. __New incoming doc requests__ Security Guide authors, there is interest in specializing your book by Cisco, and I wanted to let everyone know how exciting this is. I've asked them to look at the bug backlog and see what they could contribute upstream also, and they're willing and interested. The vision is that upstream docs can be reused and repurposed so I'm happy to see this vision become reality. I'm finding out if there are any particular mechanics needed so stay tuned. __Doc tools updates__ We should have a new release of the clouddocs-maven-plugin in the next 2 weeks with these features, mostly API reference-focused: Fix css padding-top for Rackspace output https://review.openstack.org/108156 Add the title of the service to API reference https://review.openstack.org/107768 Add fanatiguy to Rackspace API Ref https://review.openstack.org/112703 Add support for yaml syntax highlighting: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/111219/1 Allow error phrase to be listed with response code: https://review.openstack.org/106173 __Other doc news__ I've been clarifying what it means to be incubated from a documentation perspective on this wiki page. Most recently the Manila project was incubated and they're looking into how docs are incubated and integrated. The training team will discuss whether a separate program incubation application makes sense for them at their next team meeting, held Mondays at 12:00 Central in #openstack-meeting. An end user interest group has been having a lot of discussion on the user-committee mailing list. I wanted to be sure docs people know that the Foundation is seeking input on developer.openstack.org and looking for an app ecosystem community manager. If you know someone doing great work on cloud apps on OpenStack, please join us on that mailing list thread and let us know.
