Reorganise the User Guide - Task List

Paired with the User Guide Specialty team page, this list of tasks to complete the project helps to keep track of changes to information architecture, consistency, and conventions in the guides.

Please add your name next to one of the tasks on the List of Tasks to prevent duplication of improvements detailed in the docs spec.

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:

The List of Tasks

  • Remove duplication in table of contents
    • Several items repeat in the table of contents. Repairs to the RST files are needed. (DONE)
  • Separate User Guides in separate directories while keeping a common directory to simplify setup and writing: (DONE)
  • Develop the User Task Matrix
  • Rework the abstract for each guide to clearly identify audience and purpose.
    • Include new overview/descriptive information in the guide where such information is missing or needs updating.
  • Convert Cloud Administration Guide to RST (DONE)
  • Move Hot Guide from End User Guide to Heat repo
  • Reduce duplication of content between the guides, pointing the Cloud Admin Guide to the Admin User Guide, and Admin User Guide to the End User Guide for readers to accomplish further tasks, which is a suitable step for the abstract rewrite
  • Remove any unnecessary or self-explanatory procedures from the dashboard chapter
  • Determine a good structure for how to present tasks - Dashboard, Command-line, or Config File edits
  • Update the images (.jpg etc) of the dashboard for the Admin and Projects tabs (IN PROGRESS) Darren Chan
  • Bring consistency to certain procedures within the guide. Some have tables, while some have variable lists: (WORKING ON) Joseph Robinson
    • Create Network (normal variable list)
    • Launch Instance (variable list in bold)
    • Manage stacks and Access & Security (tables)
    • Manage objects (bullets)
  • Spacing between steps in procedures are inconsistent. Example: "Procedure To Copy an Object From One Container to Another" and

"Procedure: To Create a Metadata-only object without a file" in the "Manage and Object" section of the User Guide. -

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.
