"First App" Tutorial for OpenStack
OpenStack needs something like the tutorial "Writing your first Django
app". We're looking for volunteers to flesh out ideas on what this
tutorial would look like for OpenStack and how it would work.
Particularly we need to think about the kinds of example applications we
should go with. There's an etherpad and your ideas are welcome there or
join the conversation.

Gate Bug Triage Conclusion

A few months ago Matthew Treinish wrote about debugging a gate failure.
He wrote an update about the conclusion to the triage efforts for the
Out Of Memory failures on Neutron jobs. The cause of the failures was
running out of memory but what was leading to the OOM failures wasn’t
just limited to neutron. It was just that the neutron jobs ran with more
services which used more memory which made failures there more common.
