RDO Test Day

With Kilo out (more on this below), we need help testing, so that
we can make RDO as solid as possible.

We will be holding the Kilo RDO test day on May 5th and 6th, and would
greatly appreciate your help in this. We'll be coordinating on #rdo on
the Freenode IRC network, and on the rdo-list mailing list -
http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/rdo-list - for any questions
you may have.

Details about the test day are developing in the wiki, at
https://www.rdoproject.org/RDO_test_day_Kilo  Test cases and
documentation will be appearing there over the coming few days.

Please help us by setting aside an hour or two to help test a scenario
or two, to solidify the RDO release. Thanks!

OpenStack Summit

We're just days away from the OpenStack Summit and OpenStack Liberty
Design Summit. We'll be in Booth H4, under the big RDO sign. Drop by
and get your free RDO tshirt. We'll also have demos of RDO-manager -
https://www.rdoproject.org/RDO-Manager - and the downstream Red Hat
OpenStack Platform product.

We're also hoping to have an RDO meetup (details pending), where we'll
discuss the direction of RDO, and how you can get more involved. The
agenda for that meeting is available at
https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/RDO_Vancouver for you to add your
ideas and register your interest.

OpenStack Summit is where the direction of the next major release of
OpenStack, codenamed Liberty, will be discussed. Thousands of
OpenStack developers and operators will be gathering in Vancouver, and
you can still be part of that if you register now at
