Hi everyone,

Only four weeks to go until Newton! Andreas, Brian, Olga, and I met with our new release managers Olena and Alex a few days ago, and we're all ready and waiting with bated breath to get started on the release. Don't forget that you can contact any of us (or just send mail to the docs mailing list) if you have any questions about the Newton docs release. 

This week, I've also done a core team review, and we bid farewell to two core team members. More on that in this newsletter. 

== Progress towards Newton ==

26 days to go!

Bugs closed so far: 428

Release managers: Olena Logvinova and Alexandra Settle

Release tasks are being tracked here: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/NewtonRelease

Install Guide testing is being tracked here: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Documentation/NewtonDocTesting

== The Road to Barcelona ==

* If there's something you want to make sure we discuss at Summit, please put your ideas here: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/Ocata-DocsSessions When we get our room allocations, I'll organise it into a schedule.
* If you require a visa invitation letter to travel to Spain, then you need to fill out the form here: https://www.openstack.org/summit/barcelona-2016/travel/#visa

Looking a little further forward, Foundation have now announced that the first Project Team Gathering (PTG) will be held in Atlanta, US, on Feb 20-24: http://www.openstack.org/ptg

== Core Team Review ==

The core team have completed their review for August, and I'm a bit sad to announce that both Atsushi Sakai and Gauvain Pocontek are no longer core team members.

Gauvain has been committing to OpenStack manuals since well before my time, and has been an invaluable resource for many people (including myself!) over the years. He is currently working on some new projects, but we hope to still see him around from time to time. 

Atsushi-san joined the core team last year, and during that time has proven an extremely effective reviewer. He is still very busy on OpenStack, with an increased focus on cross-project tasks, so we will be sure to still see him around. I wish you well on your endeavours!

I thank you both for your commitment to being core team members, and for all your contributions. We are better because of your effort.
