Storyboard is a task tracker used in the OpenStack community for managing work.

The community is undergoing a migration from the legacy task tracker (Launchpad) to StoryBoard. If you are looking for details on this migration see the section: 'Migrating to StoryBoard'.

Please Note: We are a small team- based in the UK & US. If things seem too quiet, it might just be a case of different timezones. Stick around!

Weekly Meetings


In our highly distributed community (and team), communication is the most important skill you could have. So please! Join the conversation :) Don't be scared, we are nice people!

For StoryBoard, we have our own #storyboard channel on the OFTC network in IRC for all conversations related to our wonderful task tracker! If you have any questions about usage or getting involved please feel free to drop in!

We also make use of the openstack-discuss and opendev service-discuss mailing lists for more asynchronous communication. Please use the tag [StoryBoard] in the subject header to get our attention :)

When developing StoryBoard, its incredibly helpful to be able to spin up a local version to test your changes (and hopefully those of others). The documentation here explains how you can run your own StoryBoard locally.
