[openstack-dev] Propose "project story wiki" idea

I think the idea in general is very good (I would be a heavy consumer of 
such a thing myself). I am not sure how sustainable is to do it manually 
though, especially for larger projects. 
Maybe there is a reasonable way to automate this.. For example, if we 
could generate a 'dashboard' for each project, aggregating weekly progress 
with patches and blueprints, as well as mailing list threads (potentially 
grouped by tags associated with projects). Maybe stackalytics could be 
used as a platform..

Subject:        [openstack-dev] Propose "project story wiki" idea

Hi stackers,

Currently what I see is growing amount of interesting projects, that at 
least I would like to track. But reading all mailing lists, and reviewing 
all patches in all interesting projects to get high level understanding of 
what is happing in project now, is quite hard or even impossible task (at 
least for me). Especially after 2 weeks vacation =)

The idea of this proposal is that every OpenStack project should have 
"story" wiki page. It means to publish every week one short message that 
contains most interesting updates for the last week, and high level road 
map for future week. So reading this for 10-15 minutes you can see what 
changed in project, and get better understanding of high level road map of 
the project.

E.g. we start doing this in Rally: 

I think that the best way to organize this, is to have person (or few 
persons) that will track all changes in project and prepare such updates 
each week. 

Best regards,
Boris Pavlovic
