First off, thanks a lot for sending this out!
If my understanding is correct, the openstack-manual repo would only store
static index pages and some configuration files? Everything under
https://github.com/openstack/openstack-manuals/tree/master/doc would be
moved to project repos?
The installation guide is special in that project-specific in-tree guides
still depend on common content that currently lives in openstack-manuals.
Where would that common content go, then?
This includes installation guide sections such as:
Also, unlike the openstack-manual's installation guide content, the in-tree
guides do not use conditional content for different distributions. I assume
individual projects would need to maintain separate common content for

If the intention here is to make the content more visible to developers who
work in project repos, then separating the content to a different repo
kind of goes against that idea, I think.
