Hi everyone,

I've been struck down by the dreaded flu this week, so it's been a bit quiet around here. I have, however, crawled out from under the tissues, throat lozenges, and episodes of Containment to pen my regular newsletter for you. See how dedicated I am to the cause? ;)

The biggest updates this week have been on the API side of the ship, with the api-site bug list cleared out. Well done to Anne and Atsushi-san for the heavy lifting there. We also saw a lot of speciality team meetings kick off again this week, with more coming next week, so keep an eye on the mailing list and your ical for the projects you're interested in. We have also now hit our stride on the regular docs meetings, with the APAC meeting held this week, and the US one rolling around again next week. If you're a docs cross-project liaison, make sure you check out the timing and pick one that works for you, so we can make sure we're discussing *your* project.

'''Hypervisor Tuning Guide: Blair Bethwaite
Hi! I'm going to try looking after this for a while as Joe focuses on other things. Not promising much at this point beyond a little wiki gardening, but longer term I hope to align it with some activities in the scientific-wg (which I'm co-chairing with Stig Telfer), and it will probably become a point of reference for some of the activities we already have planned this cycle.

'''UX/UI Guidelines: Michael Tullis, Stephen Ballard'''
No report this week.

== Site Stats ==

While 90% of our readers have their browsers set to US English, just under 8% browse in Chinese, and a mere 0.15% use British English. That last one might be just me ;)
