Adding Your Blog To Planet OpenStack

The config for the planet aggregator is kept in a git repo and managed by Gerrit. To add your feed to Planet OpenStack, simply clone git://git.openstack.org/openstack/openstack-planet and then follow the normal OpenStack development workflow to submit your change.

Separating Content

You may want to tag or label individual posts or categorize only some posts to be aggregated in Planet OpenStack. Different blogging software have different ways of providing feeds that will only aggregate posts you mark or tag under an "openstack" category, for example.

Adding Your Feed

Check out the configuration files from git:

$ git clone git://git.openstack.org/openstack/openstack-planet
$ cd openstack-planet

Next, place your hackergotchi<<FootNote(Your hackergotchi should be scaled to roughly 100x100 pixels, give or take.)>> into the images/ subdirectory:

$ cp ~/hackergotchi.png images/yourusername.png
$ git add images/yourusername.png

If you don't have a hackergotchi to add right away, comment out the line (using # at the beginning) or leave the entire line out.

Once you've done that, add a stanza like the following to the end of the planet.ini file:

name = Your Name Here
face = yourusername.png
nick = yourusername

/!\ Please use your real name at least somewhere in the 'name' field.

When you are satisfied that your entry is correct, it's time to check in your changes:

$ git commit -a -m "Added <yourusername> to Planet OpenStack"
$ git review
