hello folks,

we all push to improve how we interact with the OpenStack users, help 
newcomers find answers to their questions and ease their path to 
adoption. That's why we kickstarted the project Ask OpenStack. We're 
installing an instance of Askbot under the openstack.org domain, with 
the help of Askbot developers. It will have a custom skin and 
authentication based on Launchpad like the rest of our services.

In the first phase it will support English and once we decide that we 
like it, we will start adding other languages so users will be able to 
ask questions and get answers in their own language.

While the technical part of Ask is being done, I'd like to start talking 
about the organization of the content of the site, the static pages, 
etc. We'll probably also need moderators and OpenStack experts that can 
help answer questions on the site. If you want to help with these tasks 
please join the Community mailing list
where we can discuss the project further.
