I appreciate you taking some time out to make that happen. We have five weeks left to release, and we would like to have this signed off about a week ahead of time, around the end of September.

FYI, all rc1 packages for Newton and Debian are available in both Debian
Sid + Experimental, and the OpenStack infra Debian repositories
("unofficial" Jessie backports), and this now also includes Horizon rc2
(which finally has Django 1.10 support).

Not much testing has occurred yet since Newton b2, as moving to
packaging on OpenStack infra was very demanding, but also, I don't
expect much breakage.

The only thing that aren't worked-out yet are the Horizon plugins, but
first, it shouldn't take to long to have them, and second, that's
probably out of scope of the install-guide.

I remain available if anyone needs my help testing Debian. I'll try to
do some of it too, and in fact already started [1].
