Hi everyone,

This week marks six weeks left to the Newton release, so I've been busy getting everything prepared. We're now ready to start testing the core Installation Tutorial, so check out the wiki and get signed up: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Documentation/NewtonDocTesting#Testers We've also selected two new release managers to assist with this release, please welcome Olena and Alex! More on those topics in this newsletter.  

== Progress towards Newton ==

40 days to go!

Bugs closed so far: 387

Release planning: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/NewtonRelease

== Release Managers ==

There was an overwhelming response to my request for release managers, which was very cool! The first two responders were Olena Logvinova <ologvinova at mirantis.com> and Alexandra Settle <alexandra.settle at RACKSPACE.COM>, so please welcome them to the release team. Their main role during this process is to make sure that all the tasks we have to complete get done accurately and on schedule. It's an important job, and we're really glad to have you both on board.

== Install Tutorial Testing ==

Install Tutorial testing is just about ready to kick off. If you're interested in helping, make sure you've added your name on to the list on our testing wiki page: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Documentation/NewtonDocTesting (if you don't have wiki access, just email me directly and I'll add you in). 

Thanks to our package maintainers, we now have b2 pre-release packages ready for Ubuntu and Debian, so those are ready to be tested. 

== Docs Tools ==

I'm very pleased to announce that we have now removed DocBook from our build tools. The end of an era! Thanks to Anne, Andreas, and David Cramer for keeping this project alive for so long, and eventually seeing it come to fruition.

Version 1.5.0 of openstackdoccstheme was released this week.

In other tools news, there are plans afoot to move developer.openstack.org and docs.openstack.org away from Rackspace Cloudsites, and on to pages that OpenStack Infra control. This has been on the proverbial backburner for a long time, but the Infra team is now in a position to make it happen. You can read and comment on the Infra spec here: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/276482/
