OpenStack software documentation
Documentation is community-oriented and available for different audiences on several websites - this wiki is for fast, changing documentation, the developer documentation for the projects is on nova.openstack.org, swift.openstack.org, keystone.openstack.org, and glance.openstack.org. For official documentation, see docs.openstack.org. To log a bug against the documentation, go to http://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-manuals.
There's also an OpenStack documentation mailing list.

Doc source is on GitHub. Everyone can propose merge to docs. Here are the repositories that build to docs.openstack.org.
These guides are available and sourced in .rst files in /doc/source/ if you want to work on them:
- OpenStack Object Storage (Swift) Development Guidelines
- OpenStack Compute (Nova) Developer Guide
- OpenStack Image Service (Glance) Developer Docs
- OpenStack Identity Service (Keystone) Developer Docs

Ideally the content on the above sites is geared towards developers, and docs.openstack.org is for developer consumers of the ReST API and OpenStack administrators.
Lists current development release and past releases, with links to downloads and release notes (what's new and what's changed in each release as well as known issues and potential workarounds)
