OpenStack "L" naming poll 
We'd like your help again in selecting the right name for the
development cycle and release coming after "Kilo". Our next summit will
happen in Vancouver, BC (Canada) in May. L candidate names were
proposed, selected and checked for various issues... leaving 4
candidates on the final public poll. Please take a moment to participate
to our poll: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/openstack-l-naming

Take these OpenStack Infrastructure tools and run!

When you’ve got thousands of proposed patchsets, comments and test
environments flooding in every day, you need the right tools to handle
them. OpenStack created these free software tools to handle its
burgeoning scale - here’s what they can do for you.

How to craft a successful OpenStack Summit proposal

The community has plenty to say: there were over 1,000 proposals for
less than 200 talks at the Paris Summit in November 2014. For the
upcoming Summit in Vancouver, there are 17 Summit tracks, from community
building and security to hands-on labs. The deadline for proposals is
February 9.
