      Introducing the OpenStack Ambassador Program

OpenStack Community Manager Tom Fifield started the discussion on the
formation of an OpenStack Ambassador Program, which aims to create a
framework of community leaders to sustainably expand the reach of
OpenStack around the world. We would like to recognize and further
empower these community members to achieve the OpenStack mission, as
well as provide more structure and resources to the growing community
and user groups. Your feedback would be excellent! For more specifics on
the program, and information about becoming an ambassador, stay tuned
for the next post.

      Managing identities in the cloud

CERN has 11,000 physicists who use the lab's facilities including the
central IT department resources. As with any research environment, there
are many students, PhDs and other project members who join one of the
experiments at CERN. They need to have computing accounts to access
CERN's cloud but we also need to make sure these resources are handled
correctly when they are no longer affiliated with the organisation.

      Why OpenStack Puppet modules did not have vacation

A lot of work has been done on Puppet modules lately. There is no doubt
to say that puppet modules are designed for high-quality and
best-practices configurations around an important community who takes
care of those concepts.

      Yet another way to monitor OpenStack

Emilien Macchi <http://my1.fr/blog> decided to write some useful scripts
to check if every OpenStack service are running. He was not fully
satisfied with current methods because he feels they lack some deepness.

      refined: 10 OpenStack Core Positions

OpenStack Foundation Board member Rob Hirschfeld

of OpenStack. This is a must-read for anybody interested in joining the
meeting in San Francisco on Aug 27
