Documentation is community-oriented and available for different audiences on several websites - this wiki is for project or release documentation, the developer documentation for the projects is on docs.openstack.org/developer for example. For official documentation, see docs.openstack.org. To log a bug against the documentation, go to http://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-manuals or http://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-api-site.

There's also an OpenStack documentation mailing list and IRC channel at #openstack-doc.

The Documentation Project Team Lead (PTL) is Lana Brindley.

OpenStack documentation

Published docs and their location

The public interface to all documentation is the docs.openstack.org web site. It contains continuously updated manuals. If you like to edit one of these, see Documentation source and target locations for a list of documents and their source repositories.

Source repositories

Doc source is on GitHub. Everyone can propose changes to docs, see Documentation/HowTo. Here are the repositories that build to docs.openstack.org.

For a complete listing of which docs are built, including details about source and target locations, see Documentation/Builds.
