Hi Jeremy and crew,
Thanks for doing all this changeover work to get us to the Foundation.

Hi all,
After (finally) reading this whole message, I had some questions, and I
wanted to share the answers with the larger group too.

I want to point out to the list... we all need to re-sign the CLA after
Feb. 24th. All. Need. To. Do. It. No whining. :) Also you must be a
Foundation member to sign the CLA. We'll have some wiki page updating to do
in the new wiki for the onboarding process.

If you're the curious type like me, you want to know "what changed?" Well
there's a decent diff to read[1], I mostly see it as changing OpenStack LLC
to OpenStack Foundation and a typo (such as "other others" to "of others").
Even with my practiced "markup diff" eye I don't see other big differences.

Linked from this page is a new cool admin interface for group management.
Groups we have now should just migrate over, and after 2/24 we can use the
new interface. Even so, I might take it as an opportunity to do some

Those were all my questions -- I thought I'd share in case it helps others.
