      What is OpenStack Core?

OpenStack Foundation board member Rob Hirschfeld
<http://robhirschfeld.com/> posted a series of short essays to spark a
discussion around defining OpenStack Core. His latest post Twelve straw
man positions to frame OpenStack “what is core” discussion
<http://robhirschfeld.com/2013/07/24/what-is-core-strawman/> moves to
the ‘What’ is core from the /how /
<http://robhirschfeld.com/2013/07/22/making-openstack-meaningful/>.  The
twelve positions have been crafted over the course of several weeks and
are constantly evolving. Next steps are to expand discussions to the
OpenStack Community for input and review at the next Board Meeting on
August 6th
  Ultimately, we need to close this issue at the next Summit

      To the first OpenStack Documentation BootCamp

The OpenStack Docs Bootcamp offers a deep dive into the technical tools,
workflows, and processes we use to create docs.openstack.org
<http://docs.openstack.org/> and api.openstack.org
<http://api.openstack.org/>. Our goal is to give enough information that
will create sustaining new core members of OpenStack Documentation. You

      OpenStack Hits a Triple with OpenStack on OpenStack

On the 16th July the OpenStack Technical Committee voted
<https://lists.launchpad.net/openstack/msg25222.html> to make OpenStack
Deployment <https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/TripleO> an official
OpenStack Program <https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Programs>. Our
mission is to “Develop and maintain tooling and infrastructure able to
deploy OpenStack in production, using OpenStack itself wherever
possible.” For the latest code and documentation visit our incubator
repository at https://github.com/openstack/tripleo-incubator. OpenStack
Deployment (TripleO) was started by HP as part of our active
contribution to OpenStack, in order to fill in core gaps in delivering
OpenStack to users.

      Openstack General List Migration

Update your filters: starting from now the OpenStack General list
openstack at lists.launchpad.net <mailto:openstack at lists.launchpad.net> has
become openstack at lists.openstack.org
<mailto:openstack at lists.openstack.org>. We have almost completed the
move of all OpenStack mailing lists to our mailman installation on
http://lists.openstack.org <http://lists.openstack.org/>. There are some
known issues still to be removed, though. Please bear with us while we
fix them. Thanks to Paul Hummer and the whole Launchpad team at
Canonical for making this migration happen.
