Greetings from Austin!

Yesterday we held the Install Guide planning workgroup. It was a full room, with some very robust discussion, and I want to thank everyone for participating and sharing their thoughts on this matter. We have some solid goals to achieve for Newton now.

The etherpad with the discussion is here: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/austin-docs-workgroup-install

The original spec to create a way for projects to publish Instal Guides has now been merged, thanks to consensus being achieved at the Design Summit session, and a few minor edits: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/301284/ We can now begin work on this.

There is a new spec up to cover the remainder of the work to be done on the existing Install Guide: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/310588 This still needs some iterations to get it into shape (including determining the name we are going to use for the Install Guide). So, patches welcome.

Again, thank you to all the many people who attended the session, and those who have found me this week and discussed the future of the Install Guide. I'm confident that this plan has broad acceptance, is achievable during the Newton cycle, and it moves the documentation project forward.

Feedback is, as always, very welcome.
