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

  • Kato. CLI Ref report:

CLI Reference: We try to recreating the single page view for the "openstack" command. I'd like to generate the reference from source code automatically. However, python-openstackclient has many plug-ins. It is difficulty, but worth to tackle it. We need your help!
