Excerpts from Doug Hellmann's message of 2017-07-20 15:11:57 -0400:
> Docs team,
> We have two sets of changes happening in openstack-manuals that
> will simplify managing the content there, and that will .
> Over the last couple of weeks we have removed several guides from
> the repository. The remaining guides are not version-specific, which
> allows us stop creating stable branches of that repository. We will
> continue to publish from stable/newton and stable/ocata for as long
> as those versions of the guides are supported.
> I am also preparing a series to patches [1] to rearrange some of
> the template pages to let us publish directly from master to docs.o.o,
> without using a separate "draft" directory that requires special
> effort at the end of a release cycle. When the series is approved
> (specifically when [2] lands), changes approved in the master branch
> will go live on the site within an hour or so of merging. They will
> no longer be published to the /drafts folder.
> Both of these are changes to the current process, so we wanted to
> ensure that all contributors (and especially reviewers) were aware
> of the changes. Please keep this in mind when approving future
> changes.
> The last patch in the series [3] updates the instructions for the
> end-of-release process based on these changes. I want to make sure
> these instructions are clear so that someone other than me can
> perform the steps, so I need your feedback on that patch especially.

These patches are approved and are in the post-merge queue now. The
site should be updating over the next hour or two. If you spot any
issues, please report them in #openstack-docs or as a follow-up to
this message so we can take care of them.
