Hi everyone,

This is my final newsletter for the year, as I'm taking summer vacation over the next few weeks (yay for Southern Hemisphere weather!). Your regularly scheduled programming will resume in mid-January.

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the incredible work of the entire documentation team, especially the core team who have worked all year to keep on top of reviews, the speciality team leads who motivate and inspire their teams each and every day, and every single documentation contributor and reviewer: without you all doing your little bit, we wouldn't have had the success we have had. Thank you also to our crew of support people: from infra and release management, to our subject matter experts and the wonderful people on the TC and at Foundation. Thanks for helping us be the best we can be. I would also like to make special mention of Andreas Jaeger and Anne Gentle, who both continue to hold my hand daily and make sure I don't make too much of a fool of myself in public. Your support and encouragement have been invaluable.

While we're on the goodwill wagon: if there's someone (or something!) you would like to call out for a special mention, you can do so using #success in our IRC channel. All successes get logged here: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Successes and it's a great way to show your appreciation for your fellow community members.

Hopefully the guide will pick up two or three regular contributors to help things along. I'll continue to work on it 1-2 hours a week as I get time.
