 1. In review and merged this past week:

We merged in draft copies of the user guide and the configuration reference
this past week. They're both unpublished but please review ongoing patches.
Lots of good bug fixes from new contributors too, thanks to Gauvain
Pocentek, Sean Roberts, Lakhinder Walia, Selvakumar Arumugam, Colin
McNamara, and Erwan Gallen! Woo.

2. High priority doc work:

Refactoring to make it easier to find your way around seems to be the theme
lately. We also need to help newcomers find good work to do. Shaun McCance
started this week, contracting for Cisco, and Steve Gordon from RedHat is
ramping up a team as well. I think it's a high priority to make sure
everyone is familiar with the goals in the restructure blueprint [1] and
can find a good place to dig in.

3. Doc work going on that I know of:

The Hardening Guide book sprint starts next week. Go go go writers! Let us
know how you're doing and please do take pictures.

Emilien Macchi and Nick Chase are meeting weekly about progress on the High
Availability guide.

4. New incoming doc requests:

Sean Roberts and Colin McNamara are working with user groups and want to
propose a blueprint for discussion about integration points for training
and the manuals. I'll let them give more ideas but wanted to point to that
as a new idea.

5. Doc tools updates:

DocImpact is now fully functional and I wake up to new bugs logged or
updated each morning, thanks to everyone who made that possible. It's
really fantastic.

Zhongyue Luo continues to work on getting sample conf files created for all
the projects. So far he has glance, nova, quantu, and cinder covered. Swift
would have to use oslo.config to get option extraction. For keystone he'll
fix the generator slightly to look at their conf objects. Steven Deaton is
working with him and we hope to get the table generation working for all
the projects that use oslo.config.

6. Other doc news:
I think the Monday office hours are going to be really useful. We'll keep
doing those weekly and I've added them ongoing to the OpenStack calendar.
