As it happens, according to my job description, doing a "deep dive into
a new feature and make an article out of it that makes a good read for
developers or OpenStack deployers") IS my full time job, and as of
yesterday, so is keeping up with "weekly technical news that would cover
updates from major projects". :) The information site's just emerging
from beta (when I get back after Thanksgiving, likely) but I'm sure we
can work something out.
So I'm happy to head this up, if nobody else has time.
