So, just to clarify, the current plan is for your group to take ownership
of the following docs?


Note that there is also
which you probably want to merge with the ha-guide going forward (or
retire one or the other).

As for naming the repo, this is really up to you, but it should be
something clear and easily recognizable by your audience.

I can help with moving some of the content around, but as Doug pointed out,
a few points about actual publishing need to be clarified first with the
infra team.

If you want more reviewers involved, I'd recommended inviting the reviewers
from the docs group.

Might be best to look into how https://github.com/openstack/security-doc is
configured as that repo contains a number of separate documents, all managed
by one group.

I'd suggest either having your own storyboard or launchpad project so that
users can file bugs somewhere, and give you feedback. storyboard might be a
better option since all OpenStack projects all likely to migrate to it from
launchpad at some point or another.
