Newton Tasks

  • Work with the Ops Guide to check for duplicated content
  • Check for missing content and out of date content - fix links
  • Bring new service projects into the User Guides - esp. projects that have info in dev docs that could be moved into the user guide
  • IA plan - consistency, links, findability plus tables, code snippets, naming conventions (use contributor guide)

IA Plan

Basic IA - consistency and formatting choices

  • Telemetry - code snippet tables don't fit the page.
  • Networking - Use Networking Section - Networking tables are not consistent
  • Secure with Rootwrap - Migrate instances - These tables were code snippets - can they be returned to this format?
  • Flavours - Tables have bold heading. And sentences associated with these headings - Show Host Usage Statistics: Host usage statistics description, and change to bold headings - Are the tables in the Admin User Guide on setting flavors effective?
  • Setting up flavours- are these tables "effective" Do they help user or admin personas set up flavours?
  • Rootwrap - Migrate Instances: These tables were code snippets. Can they be replaced with images or appropriate code snippets?
  • Nova-Networking - Configure Compute to use IPv6 addresses: Address table consistency across guides.
Links between articles
  • Block Storage
    • Migrate Volumes commands could appear in the End User Guide. Work to bring these articles together.
  • Networking with Nova Network
    • The Cloud Admin Guide references floating IP addresses, which users can change. The User Guide section on Networking will need reorganization to line up with this content.
  • Building Blocks
    • The nova image-list command. Link together the content on the nova command line client with the End User Guide here.
Persona Clear up
  • Block Storage
    • Back up and Restore volumes: Is this procedure a cloud admin procedure...Can this basic information be adapted to fit the User Guides.
Moving content
  • Networking
    • Configuring Identity for Networking: A note about not using Nova-network with compute appears here,
    • but needs to appear earlier - the introduction - as a warning for cloud administrators.
    • Networking Architecture: This section's description of architecture would be better placed following the introduction.

Block Storage

    • Block Storage: persistent storage needs to be mentioned earlier and more clearly in this introduction.
    • Rate-limit volume copy Bandwidth: Reorganize the guide such that this content appears closer to the information on moving and migrating block storage volumes ("volume_copy_bps_limit").

Secure with Rootwrap

    • Frequently Asked Questions: An FAQ in the guide clashes with the other information.
    • Information Architecture checkup needed here to rework this information.
New Diagrams
  • Security Hardening
    • Improve the OpenStack with Trusted Compute Pools Second diagram. a new diagram needs headings, and consistency with the other diagrams.

Up to Date Tasks

  • Building Blocks
    • Introduction: Clarify what base operating system is referred to here. Check content for accuracy.
  • Networking with nova-network
    • VLAN Network Manager: Check paragraph indentation.
  • Metadata
    • Liberty to Mitaka-metadata services now include 'project_id' according to release notes.
    • Metadata needs an SME check for currency. (Andrew Bogott, John Garbutt, Matthiew Gagne)
    • Description of metadata config options table: Address table consistency across guides.
  • Secure with Rootwrap
    • Configuration option [Default]: SME to check, and change to better format. Might need a code snippet
    • Recover Cloud After disaster: Test or have SME check on this procedure.
    • Supported Operations in filter and goodness functions: Remove passive voice in the Caution note.
    • Image volume cache: Remove passive voice.
  • Networking
  • Database

No recommended changes currently.

  • Baremetal

No recommended changes currently.

  • Orchestration

No recommended changes currently.

  • Telemetry
    • Data Retrieval: The code snippet tables need to fit the page.
    • Measurements: Confirm that no other measurement items are added from the Liberty release. https://github.com/openstack/ceilometer/commit/43a50f9be884c731afc41a07442e2a8ddee6fc77 - CPU util checks added, and Magnum checks ("magnum sends the following: name: container.bay.memory_util, type: gauge, unit: %, resource_id: bay id, source: notification, description: memory utilisation of swarm bay"
  • Orchestration (Joseph Robinson)
    • Orchestration Authorization Model: This section requires an edit for grammar.
    • Stack domain users: Grammar Edits also required for this section.
    • Cross-origin resource sharing: The sub-section "enabling CORS with configuration" needs an edit to change into a procedure rather than a list of items.
  • Cross-project features

No recommended changes currently

Link checks and changes

After conversion to .rst format, links to the Cloud Admin Guide (please check also End User Guide, Admin User Guide, and Security Guide links - a "/content" in the URL is always wrong for these) from across the docs and projects have changed. These all need to be updated. Below is a list tracking the OpenStack doc project, and the reviews that target the links within each doc project:

Cloud Admin Guide RST Conversion

  • One of the OpenStack Docs selected for Conversion after the Vancouver 2015 design summit is the Cloud Admin Guide. Converting the guide to RST is now a task and a priority of the User Guide Speciality team.
  • When conversion is complete, we can reorganize the content of the Cloud Admin Guide, Admin User Guide, and End User Guide.

Additional Information

    • all the content is accounted for. Starting the change to .rst. Switching off the .xml and publishing the .rst version - Andreas has put together a list of the steps involved. There are several steps involved. He has used the security guide as an example.
    • Create a new blueprint to store work item patches. Any related bugs on changing the user, cloud admin, or admin guides, please search and add these to the blueprint whiteboard as items to work on- use Workitem tag, followed by a link to the bug.
    • "nova live migrations" and "nova zookeeper" .. todo markers are still in the docs. Can we keep the notes in the document, and then write links to these configuration reference files as a work item on the list?
  • Thursday 06/08/16
    • User Task Matrix - Use this table as a frame for reviewing the user guides. Please add tasks to the left column as you review the guides - check on procedures, and what they are asking the audience to do. The more important the tasks is to the particular user type, the higher the number.
    • Change to .rst - I have started reviewing the rst files for any leftover items to convert.

    • The Cloud Admin Guide RST Conversion is now a priority follow the summit. So this crosses off a question from

two weeks ago on whether the guide was in our scope. There is a task tracking table added to the RST migration page on the Wiki.

    • There is now a new heading on the RST conversion task tracking page.
    • Question for experienced writers - Where to start from here?
  • IA Update:
    • Rename the Virtual Machine Image Guide to the Cloud Image Guide
    • Admin Guide versioning. One consideration is to add versioning to the Admin Guide
    • Move Hot Guide from End User Guide to Heat repo
    • Rewriting the How-To section, resulting in doc that has ease of readability. This must avoid duplication of the infra-manual.
