Hi everyone,

This week I've been focused on getting the Install Guide project back up and running, with the team meeting being rebooted, our specs finally merged, and organising the list of tasks to be getting on with. Also, don't forget to vote in our naming poll: http://goo.gl/forms/Eqf9WOGqsXjkRbdc2 I'm still very much in need of representatives from the various project teams to pitch in and help us get things running. Please make sure your project is represented by coming along to meetings, or at least contacting us through the mailing list.

In other news, the Ops and Arch Guide re-architecture is proceeding apace. Specs were merged this week, and the new Arch Guide ToC is looking great! Check it out here: http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/docs-specs/specs/newton/arch-guide-restructure.html We are also still looking for feedback on the current Ops guide. Add your notes here: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/ops-guide-reorg

== Site Stats ==

This month, two thirds of our site visitors have been using their Mac to read the docs. Just under 30% used Windows, and Linux rounded out the remainder at 4%.

So far in the Install Guide naming poll, "OpenStack Installation Tutorial" has a commanding lead at 30%, with "Basic Install Guide" and "OpenStack Evaluation Setup Guide" (try saying that ten times fast!) tying for second place with 17% of the vote each. I'll keep the poll open for another week or so, and announce our winning name in next week's newsletter.
