Hi everyone,

Welcome to 2017. I hope you all had a chance to rest up a little before we hurtle straight into another release, as Ocata is now only 40 days away! I'll be in contact with our lovely release managers Brian and Mariia over the next week or so to kick off release management tasks. We will need people to test the Installation Guide again, too, so if you're interested in helping out there, please let me know.

As many of you already know, I'm not planning on running for Pike PTL. PTL nominations open in the week of 23 January, and I'll be working with Alex and Kato-san who have both expressed interest in taking on this role. If you're interested in running for PTL (for Pike or any future release), and would like a crash course in PTLing, please let me know and I can share whatever meagre wisdom I've gleaned.

== Progress towards Ocata ==

40 days to go!

Closed 149 bugs so far.

Deliverables are being tracked here: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Documentation/OcataDeliverables

== The Road to PTG in Atlanta ==

Event info is available here: http://www.openstack.org/ptg 
Purchase tickets here: https://pikeptg.eventbrite.com/ 

Docs is a horizontal project, so our sessions will run across the Monday and Tuesday of the event. We will be combining the docs event with i18n, so translators and docs people will all be in the room together.

The incoming PTL will be responsible for planning and running sessions at the Atlanta PTG.

Also, a quick note that the CFP and ticket sales for *Boston* in May are now open: https://www.openstack.org/summit/boston-2017/call-for-presentations/

== Speciality Team Reports ==

* API: Anne Gentle
Fairy-slipper is being retired. It was a good tool, served its purpose, and can now traipse into the sunset, thanks to AJaeger and stevemar for the help with the patches. Be sure to follow the service catalog naming conventions work going on in the API WG. And there's also a new EC2 API reference: http://developer.openstack.org/api-ref/ec2-api/ 

* Configuration Reference and CLI Reference: Tomoyuki Kato
Config Reference: Updated a few plug-ins. CLI reference: Updated a few command references and removed unsupported Block Storage API v1 and Image API v1.

* High Availability Guide: Andrew Beekhof
No report this week

* Hypervisor Tuning Guide: Joe Topjian
No report this week

* Installation guides: Lana Brindley
Testing for Ocata will be opening soon. Also, we need a web dev for the landing page, if you know of anyone, please get me in touch. 

* Networking Guide: John Davidge
No update this week.

* Operations and Architecture Design guides: Darren Chan
Ben Silverman has spent some time refining the Compute content in the Arch Guide draft. Thanks Ben! We are also looking for more SMEs to help with the Arch Guide. So if you're interested, contact asettle or me.

* Security Guide: Nathaniel Dillon
No update this week.

* Training Guides: Matjaz Pancur
No update this week.

* Training labs: Pranav Salunke, Roger Luethi
No update this week.

* User guides: Joseph Robinson
The command conversions have happened at a good pace, the User Guide appears to be mostly complete, with the condition that the trove and manila teams do not have OpenStack commands yet. I have started checking through the Admin Guide files. I suspect there is more to convert, but it should be ready for Ocata.

== Doc team meeting ==

Our next meeting will be on Thursday 27 January at 2100 UTC in #openstack-meeting-alt

Keep on doc'ing!
