Hi everyone,

This week I've been focusing on general housekeeping duties as we prepare to rush headlong into the release. I've cleaned up the blueprints list, and also been burning through the oldest bugs in our queue. I'm very pleased to report that the overall number of bugs has reduced dramatically in the past month or two, and the number of untriaged bugs is holding steady at a much lower rate than previously. I think this probably has a lot to do with the DocImpact changes we made at the beginning of the year, so it's very gratifying to see some solid improvement starting to filter through. In other news, thanks to all those people who helped us with locating pre-release packages for the Install Guide. Please feel free to begin testing! The more people we have testing, the better and more accurate our docs will be, which helps everyone.

== Progress towards Mitaka ==

47 days to go!

417 bugs closed so far for this release. There is a global bug smash event coming up March 7-9 to try and hit as many Mitaka bugs as possible. You can join an in-person group near you, or participate remotely. There are still plenty of docs bugs that can be attended to. Details here: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/OpenStack-Bug-Smash-Mitaka
