Outreachy May-Aug 2016: Call For Funding and Mentors
* Outreachy [5] helps people from groups underrepresented in free and open
  source software get involved by matching interns with established mentors in
  the upstream community.
* We have 10 volunteer mentors for OpenStack this next cycle (May 23-August 23
  - Learn more and apply to be a mentor [6]
* Potential sponsors have reached out, but we need more due to the increase in
  - Each intern is $6,500 for the three-month program.
  - The OpenStack Foundation has confirmed participation.
  - Learn more and apply to be a sponsor [7].
* Regardless, help spread the world!

Changing Microversion Headers
* The API working group would like to change the format of headers used for
  microversions to make them more future proof before too many projects are
  using them.
  - Proposed guideline [8].
* This came up in another guide for header non-proliferation [9].  After plenty
  of discussions, and with projects already deploying microversions (Nova,
  Ironic, Manila) the proposal is change basic from:
  - X-OpenStack-Nova-API-Version: 2.11
  - OpenStack-Compute-API-Version: 2.11
* To:
  - OpenStack-API-Version: compute 2.11
* This allows us to use one header name for multipel services and avoids some
  of the problems described in the header non-proliferation guideline [9].

OpenStack Contributor Awards
* The Foundation would like introduce some informal quirky awards to recognize
  the extremely valuable work that we all do to make Openstack excel.
* With many different areas to celebrate, there are a few main chunks of the
  community that need a little love:
  - Those who might not be aware that they are valued, particularly new
  - Those who are the active glue that binds the community together
  - Those who share their hard-earned knowledge with others and mentor
  - Those who challenge assumptions, and make us think
* Nominate someone who you think is deserving of an awards [10]!

Status Of Python 3 In OpenStack Mitaka
* 13 services were ported to Python 3 during the Mitaka cycle: Cinder, Glance,
  Heat, Horizon, etc.
* 9 services still need to be ported
* Next Milestone: Functional and integration tests
* “Ported to Python 3” means that all unit tests pass on Python 3.4 which is
  verified by a voting gate job. It is not enough to run applications in
  production with Python 3. Integration and functional tests are not run on
  Python 3 yet.
* Read the full status post [11] by Victor Stinner.
* Join Freenode channel #openstack-python3 to discuss and help out!
