  • Architecture Design Guide

APAC OpenStack contributors gathered for a docs swarm on the 13-14 August in Brisbane, Australia. The focus was copy-editing the Architecture Design Guide, and there were some great discussions on reorganising and updating technical content to better meet the needs of operators and cloud architects. This has lead to specs being drafted for RST conversion and reorganisation during the Mitaka release.

  • Operations Guide

Blueprints and specs are currently being drafted for the Mitaka release.
