Hey OpenStackers,

based on the latest discussions, it was asked if we can try to post 
regular updates of what is happening in our community (mostly on Askbot 
forum: http://ask-openstackux.rhcloud.com).

In this e-mail, I'd like to summarize ongoing issues and try to cover 
updates weekly (or each 14 days - based on content).

     - Deployment Management is completely new section
     - Implementation needs to start ASAP
     - At the moment the concept is the most important, so we don't have 
major changes later
     - We can get into granular details later
     - Review review review please

most certainly welcome
