00:31:42 <JRobinson__> Hi o/ who is here for the Docs team meeting ?
00:34:12 <bmoss> o/
00:34:22 <darrenc> \o
00:34:30 <JRobinson__> hi bmoss and darrenc o/
00:35:29 <JRobinson__> I think we might need one more to reach minimum attendance?
00:36:11 <JRobinson__> I think it's worth bringing up the summit prep at least though.
00:36:17 <darrenc> I wonder if kato is around
00:36:29 <JRobinson__> So we'll hold on for a bit in case anyone else can make it
00:37:39 <bmoss> it is a bit quiet today
00:39:03 * loquacities is lurking
00:39:11 <loquacities> (i'm distracted, though)
00:39:46 <JRobinson__> Well that's four, so I'm going to run through these points anyway so there's a record of the summit prep, which is a priority
00:40:02 <JRobinson__> #topic Action items from last meeting
00:40:40 <JRobinson__> And there are exactly none to action.
00:40:54 <JRobinson__> #topic Specs in Review
00:41:03 <JRobinson__> #link https://review.openstack.org/#/q/status:open+project:openstack/docs-specs,n,z
00:41:36 <JRobinson__> There are four at the moment. The Release chapter to the contributor guide is important -

00:42:31 <JRobinson__> There are three others that also need review:

00:42:48 <JRobinson__> #link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/354093/
00:43:00 <JRobinson__> #link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/336007/
00:43:23 <JRobinson__> Olga's patch on release notes guidelines is also close to merging, and was included in the repo in June 30
00:44:07 <JRobinson__> #action contributors to review the new and older specs
00:44:20 <JRobinson__> #topic Speciality teams
00:44:42 <JRobinson__> #link https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/Speciality_Team_Reports
00:45:12 <JRobinson__> There's not too much to report on this close to release
00:45:56 <JRobinson__> I have no user guide updates - I'm considering removing the US User Guide meeting, however, since attendance is low.
00:46:23 <JRobinson__> Any other speciality team updates?
00:46:54 <loquacities> install guides need testing
00:46:55 <darrenc> Nothing from me
00:47:14 <JRobinson__> loquacities, thanks, and darrenc also thanks
00:47:35 <JRobinson__> #Action Testing for the Install guide
00:47:54 <JRobinson__> #info thank you if you have started testing. If you want to begin, testing is always welcome.
00:48:15 <JRobinson__> #topic Countdown to release
00:48:22 <JRobinson__> #info 28 days
00:48:29 <loquacities> eep!
00:48:32 <JRobinson__> #link http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/launch?iso=20161006T00&p0=1440&msg=OpenStack+Newton+Launch+Date&font=slab
00:48:49 <JRobinson__> #link https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Documentation/NewtonDeliverables
00:48:58 <JRobinson__> the good news is newton deliverables are on track
00:49:02 <JRobinson__> many are complete.
00:49:03 <loquacities> \o/
00:49:12 <bmoss> huzzah!
00:49:36 <JRobinson__> It's stellar work from all the contributors this release :)
00:49:47 <JRobinson__> #topic Summit Prep
00:50:21 <JRobinson__> The etherpad for summit docs sessions is ready for content:
00:50:24 <JRobinson__> #link https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/Ocata-DocsSessions
00:50:42 <JRobinson__> #action Please add any thoughts on summit discussion topics to the etherpad
00:51:10 <JRobinson__> This is everyone's chance to suggest and discuss docs changes for future releases like Pike and Queens, so do contribute.
00:51:35 <JRobinson__> (well, Ocata, Pike, and Queens. Sorry, getting a bit into the future there)
00:52:17 <JRobinson__> Also, the Program Technical Gathering dates are set. This is the first PTG:
00:52:36 <JRobinson__> #info PTG Atlanta, USA. February 20 - 24, 2017.
00:52:57 <JRobinson__> Accommodation and locating is still being decided.
00:53:09 <JRobinson__> ^location
00:53:34 <JRobinson__> Also, one link on PTGs:
00:53:53 <JRobinson__> #link http://www.openstack.org/ptg
00:54:07 <JRobinson__> the release cycle diagram on this page is useful.
00:54:21 <JRobinson__> Any more info on the PTG or summit to discuss?
00:54:22 <loquacities> #link http://www.openstack.org/ptg/ptgfaq/
00:54:44 <loquacities> also, it's a short release cycle for ocata, so we may need to scale back our priorities a little
00:55:38 <JRobinson__> That's right. Doug H. has a patch up on the release length:
00:55:41 <JRobinson__> #link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/357214
00:56:49 <loquacities> and yes, the holiday period in dec/jan will have an impact on how much we can deliver for ocata, too
00:57:44 <JRobinson__> that's right, it might be a unique release.
00:58:06 <bmoss> maybe Ocata should be more focused on paying down tech debt than introducing new stuff
00:58:29 <loquacities> that's probably sensible
00:58:45 <loquacities> we're making great progress on tech debt
00:58:55 <bmoss> We really are!
01:00:16 <JRobinson__> Tech debt is a good idea for the next release, that's right/
01:00:23 <JRobinson__> Any further thoughts?
01:00:34 <JRobinson__> We'll move on to open discussion otherwise
01:00:41 <loquacities> none from me
01:01:26 <JRobinson__> okay
01:01:35 <JRobinson__> #opendiscussion
01:01:45 <JRobinson__> that was wrong, one second
01:01:54 <JRobinson__> #topic Open Discussion
01:02:52 <JRobinson__> If not, we can end the meeting for today
01:03:03 <bmoss> +1
01:03:17 <JRobinson__> okay, thanks everyone!
