Hi all!

I realize it's been a while since I've posted an update about the project
-- it's high time I do so! And there are several things to report...

We tagged an Icehouse-1 milestone, though we did not publish a tarball just
yet. That should happen at the Icehouse-2 milestone.

We've had a functioning python client (library and CLI) for a while now,
and I finally got around to tagging a release and pushing it up to PyPI.
I'll be issuing another release once the deployment API is implemented
(patches are up, but may take a few iterations).

Speaking of APIs, we're auto-generating our API docs now. Thanks,
pecan/wsme! Note that our v1 API is not yet stabilized - but at least the
docs are going to stay up-to-date as we hammer out issues and add missing

We have a patchset up for a Nova "ironic" driver; it is not
feature-complete and still a WIP, but I thought it would be good to list it
here in case anyone is interested in tracking its parity with the baremetal

As of late October, Ironic was integrated with devstack. Though it is
currently disabled by default, it is easy to enable in your localrc.

We also have a diskimage-builder element and can use TripleO to deploy an
ironic-based undercloud. Even though it can't deploy an overcloud yet, I
find it very useful for development.

That's all for now,
