Welcome to Last week on OpenStack Dev (“Lwood”) for the week just past. For more background on Lwood, please refer here.

Basic Stats for the week 6 to 12 February for openstack-dev:

~348 Messages (down about 39% relative to the long term average)

~124 Unique threads (down about 31% relative to the long term average)

One of those weeks where I wonder if should ever speculate what is going to happen with traffic on the list!  Much quieter this week relative to average – there does seem to be a trend where traffic falls away a bit around a PTG or Summit so perhaps just a side effect of the proximity to next weeks PTG in Boston.  Bit of a shorter Lwood as a result

What is your favourite/most embarrassing IRC gaffe ?

So asks Kendall Nelson in his email – he’s gathering stories from the community as part of an article he’s writing. In fairness I won’t risk inadvertently stealing his thunder by repeating or summarising the stories here but if you want something to brighten your morning/afternoon, have a quick peek at the thread :)

This weeks edition of Lwood brought to you by Bruce Hornsby (Scenes from the Southside) and Bruce Springsteen (Greatest Hits).

In this my first Lwood post Rackspace I place on record my thanks to the Rack for a great few years and, of course, for supporting producing Lwood as part of my role there. I intend continuing to write Lwood for the foreseeable future modulo what my new (yet to be determined) gig might entail :)
