Hi everyone,

This week I've been smashing some older bugs from our queue, and can now confirm that as a team we've closed everything older than a year! What a great effort, and a fabulous way to go into our release period. We have less than a month now before release, so I've been briefing our new release managers Brian and Olga, and have also spent some time speaking to various people about what docs will be releasing for Mitaka. Install Guide testing is now well underway, but we can always use more hands, so please consider getting involved. If you need help getting started, please contact Matt Kassawara, or any docs core.

== Progress towards Mitaka ==

26 days to go!

500 bugs closed so far for this release, which means we're about on par with where we were this time last release. Keep squishing those bugs!

Docs Testing
* Volunteers required!
* https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Documentation/MitakaDocTesting

Release Managers:
We now have two release managers for Mitaka: Brian Moss, and Olga Gusarenko. They'll be making sure we stay on track as we hurtle towards 7 April, and will be backed up by Anne, Andreas, myself, and of course our lovely core team.

== The Road to Austin ==

* Speaker acceptances have now gone out, and the schedule is available: https://www.openstack.org/summit/austin-2016/summit-schedule/#day=2016-04-24
* PTL nominations for Newton have now opened: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/PTL_Elections_March_2016. I'm very pleased to announce that I will be submitting my candidacy for docs.
* I have requested workrooms and fishbowls for the Austin Design Summit. I'll let you know when we get our allocation.
* You should be starting to think about booking travel and accommodation soon! If you need a visa to travel to the United States, there's more info here: https://www.openstack.org/summit/austin-2016/austin-and-travel/#visa

== Speciality Teams ==

'''HA Guide - Bogdan Dobrelya'''
No update this week.

'''Installation Guide - Matt Kassawara'''
No update this week.

'''Networking Guide - Edgar Magana'''
Progress towards the missing features and new ones for Mitaka. DSCP for QoS section is in good shape: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/273638/ Last Networking Guide meeting: http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/meetings/networking_guide/2016/networking_guide.2016-03-03-16.03.log.html Still missing a lot of attendence to the IRC meeting but we are happy with more contributions to the guide. Matt provided a short overview on how to contribute during the Neutron mid-cycle sessions

'''Security Guide - Nathaniel Dillon'''
No update this week.

'''User Guides - Joseph Robinson'''
User Guide APAC and US meetings this week - discussed merging the CLI reorganization patch, which was merged following the meeting. Becuase of a meetbot error, the APAC meeting did not take place, but I am sending a summary out to the mailing list, which I am still working on.

'''Ops and Arch Guides - Shilla Saebi'''
No update this week.

'''API Docs - Anne Gentle'''
No update this week.

Bug days: Work on api-site bugs: https://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-api-site Work on these remaining WADL bugs which have patches: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/288315/     https://review.openstack.org/#/c/283114/ Continue to review and work on bootprint patch. Karin Bradshaw working on CSS updates.

'''Config Ref - Gauvain Pocentek'''
No update this week.

'''Training labs - Pranav Salunke, Roger Luethi'''
We merged support for snapshots in the KVM backend. Osbash works now on 32-bit i386 nodes which also makes nested virtualization (creating the whole VM cluster within a VM) possible. There is a new configuration file for users who only want an automated VM cluster setup, but no automated OpenStack installation. Finally, a new feature splits server log files according to cluster build phases, which makes it much easier to identify the origin of a specific log entry.

'''Training Guides - Matjaz Pancur'''
Enabled automatic bug status resolving at merge (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/283453/) WIP - Upstream training - add toolchain info for trainees (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/286941/)

'''Hypervisor Tuning Guide - Joe Topjian'''
I included a bunch of links related to NUMA and large memory pages. It'd be nice if the relevant information was pulled from the links and summarized. I also included some information about virtio-scsi.

'''UX/UI Docs Guidelines - Linette Williams'''
No update this week.
