OpenStack at The Rack
As part of my work I read the openstack-dev mailing list more or less daily to stay ahead of what’s going on, a long but interesting read :)
For much of this year I have been writing up a bit of a summary for my colleagues (called Lwood – Last Week On Openstack-Dev) about what happened in the last week on the mailing list. These summaries are, for want of a better way to put it, somewhat opinionated – I tend to highlight conversations that are relevant to my work at Rackspace – so it may well miss topics that float other people’s boat.
Prompted by a colleagues comment, it occurred to me that despite the somewhat specific/arbitrary focus, the summaries might none the less be useful to a broader audience and so have started publishing Lwood publically.
Before moving on to Lwood may I commend the excellent OpenStack Weekly Community Newsletter produced by Jay Fankhauser, Mike Perez and their colleagues at the OpenStack Foundation – there is some overlap between the Newsletter and Lwood now the former has a section on the OpenStack-dev mailing list, my hope is that the efforts may somehow be combined in the future.
