Thanks for the summary, it's pretty good reading to catch up what happened recently.
I have one question, I might missed a few entries, so please point me to the right document in this case. We had a docco session with the Telemetry team and we agreed on moving back the documentation snippets, like for instance the Install Guide, to the project trees is a really good step and we're very supportive. In this sense I would like to ask about the plans regarding the Admin guide. We have a chapter there, which is on one hand outdated and on the other hand would be better to move under the project trees as well. Is this plan/desire in line with your plans regarding that document?

> Hi everyone,
> I hope you all had a safe journey home from Summit, and are now fully recovered from all the excitement (and jetlag)! I'm really
> pleased with the amount of progress we made this time around. We have a definitive set of goals for Newton, and I'm confident that
> they're all moving us towards a much better docs suite overall. Of course, the biggest and most important work we have to do is to get
> our Install Guide changes underway. I'm very excited to see the new method for documenting OpenStack installation, and can't wait
> to see all our big tent projects contributing to docs in such a meaningful way. Thank you to everyone (in the room and online) who
> contributed to the Install Guide discussion, and helped us move forward on this important project.
> In other news, I've written a wrapup of the Austin design summit on my blog, which you might be interested in:

> Bugs closed so far: 61
> Because we have such a specific set of deliverables carved out for Newton, I've made them their own wiki page:
> Feel free to add more detail and cross things off as they are achieved throughout the release. I will also do my best to ensure it's kept
> up to date for each newsletter.
> One of the first tasks we've started work on after Summit is moving the Ops and HA Guides out of their own repositories and into
> openstack-manuals. As a result, those repositories are now frozen, and any work you want to do on those books should be in
> We are almost ready to publish the new RST version of the Ops Guide, there's just a few cleanup edits going in now, so make sure you
> have the right book, in the right repo from now on. This was our very last book remaining in DocBook XML, so the docs toolchain will
> be removing DocBook XML support. See spec https://review.openstack.org/311698 for details.
> Another migration note is that the API reference content is moving from api-site to project specific repositories and api-site is now
> frozen. For more detail, see Anne's email: http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-docs/2016-May/008536.html
> == Mitaka wrapup ==
> We performed a Mitaka retrospective at Summit, notes are here: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/austin-docs-mitakaretro
> In particular, I'd like to call out our hard working tools team Andreas and Christian, all our Speciality Team leads, and the Mitaka release
> managers Brian and Olga. Well done on a very successful release, everyone :)
> Total bugs closed: 645
> == Site Stats ==
> Thanks to the lovely people at Foundation (thanks Allison!) I now have access to more stats than I could possibly guess what to do
> with, and I'm hoping to be able to share some of these with you through the newsletter. If there's something in particular you would
> like to see, then please let me know and I'll endeavour to record it here!
> So far I can tell you that docs.openstack.org had 1.63M unique pageviews in April, down slightly from 1.72M in March, and the average
> session duration is just over six minutes, looking at just under 4 pages per session.
> == Doc team meeting ==
