      OpenStack's Test Driven Core
      <http://robhirschfeld.com/2013/08/08/openstacks-test-driven-core-its-where-i-think-what-is-core-discussions-are-heading/>

In helping drive OpenStack's "what is core" dialog
<http://robhirschfeld.com/2013/08/06/core-community-dialogue/>, board
member Rob Hirschfeld <http://robhirschfeld.com/> has reported a lot of
viewpoints about what OpenStack is and what it should be
<http://robhirschfeld.com/2013/07/22/making-openstack-meaningful/>. As a
good steward of this process he has successfully managed to be an
objective listener
<http://web.missouri.edu/%7Ecampbellr/Leadership/chapter6.htm>.  In the
recent post in the series, he expresses his point of view. This is one
of the most important conversations for the OpenStack Foundation and
it's happening now.


      Flavors -- An English perspective
      <http://openstack-in-production.blogspot.com/2013/08/flavors-english-perspective.html>

OpenStack has the capability to define flavors of virtual machines, how
many cores, swap, disk and memory. As a native UK English speaker, Tim
Bell finds the term /flavor/ to already be a problem. In his post
describing how flavors are used at CERN he appeals to the OpenStack
technical committee to not accept any term which is not the same in US
and UK English or to allow an alias. His post has lots of other
interesting information, too.


      Non-Relational Database-as-a-Service in OpenStack
      <http://www.zerobanana.com/archive/2013/08/07#non-relational-trove>

The OpenStack Technical Committee voted this week
<http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/meetings/tc/2013/tc.2013-08-06-20.01.html>
to expand the scope of the Trove <https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Trove>
program, which is currently in incubation, to encompass non-relational
as well as relational databases.
