Documentation team meeting

Every two weeks (on even weeks) on Thursday at 2100 UTC in #openstack-meeting-alt http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Documentation+Team+Meeting&iso=20161117T21&p1=1440&ah=1

This meeting is used to discuss the status of the various docs speciality teams, as well as general docs updates. If you're looking to get started with documentation, or need to discuss work on a particular book, this is the place to do that.

Please feel free to add items to the agenda below and we'll cover them.

Agenda for next meeting

When starting the meeting, use #startmeeting docteam to provide consistency.

Apologies for absence

  • Anne. API report:

Karen Bradshaw has been working on updates to the openstackdocstheme that would fix this bug: https://launchpad.net/bugs/1583623. The review is up at https://review.openstack.org/#/c/393890/ and getting input from the affected teams who have recognized the need because of errors building when you have multiple API versions with very similar calls, so you end up with identical headings.

I've had a couple of inquiries on IRC about "where did the draft/swagger files go?" but to meet their stated end goals, those particular files wouldn't have worked any way due to inaccuracies in the content and incomplete content.

See the 100 api-ref doc patches up for review at: https://review.openstack.org/#/q/status:open+file:api-ref.

  • Matjaz. Training Guide report:

- we changed our IRC meeting to every two weeks (on even weeks) on Tuesday at 1300 UTC in #openstack-meeting-3 - there will be an article published about BCN Upstream training in OpenStack’s Superuser magazine - BCN Upstream training retrospective https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/upstream-training-barcelona-retrospective

  • John. Networking Guide report:

As for my update - not much to report. A couple of new articles are close to merging:

https://review.openstack.org/#/c/361776/ - VLAN Trunking

https://review.openstack.org/#/c/356013/ - Routed Provider Networks

Need to decide how best to track the work that¹s going on for:


Probably a google spreadsheet or ether pad with a list of all the network guide pages to be converted, and the person working on it would be best. That way we can hopefully avoid duplicating efforts.

Previous meetings

Running Meetings

Public meetings are run in IRC; we use MeetBot syntax to note what happens during the meeting. http://meetbot.debian.net/Manual.html
