OpenStack Summit!

We are one month away from OpenStack Summit, and RDO will be there!

OpenStack Summit <http://openstack.org/summit> will be held in Sydney,
Australia, November 6-8, overlooking the beautiful Sydney Harbor. We would
love to see you. We'll have ducks, again, like every year.

And, we'll be having an informal gathering on Tuesday evening, starting at
6pm, at the PumpHouse <http://pumphousesydney.com.au/>. Watch the rdo-list
mailing list for signup details, coming real soon, as soon as details are

OpenStack Summit is the best place and time in the world to find out
everything about OpenStack, and to meet other OpenStack enthusiasts. And,
of course, it's the only place in the world where you can get these
exclusive RDO ducks.

If you're interested in helping out at the RDO booth at Summit, please sign
up for a time <https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/rdo-sydney-summit-booth>.
Rich will be there the whole time, but we always need extra people to
answer questions, explain what RDO is, and just be friendly.
CentOS Dojo at CERN!

Coming up in just over a week, OpenStack and CentOS enthusiasts will be
gathering in Meyrin, Switzerland, at the amazing CERN facility, for a
CentOS Dojo. This will be Friady, October 20th, and you can find out more
details at cern.ch/centos.

If you're planning to come, you *must* register, in order to be admitted to
the facility. They're very serious about security, as you might imagine.

Presentations will cover CentOS CI, how the various SIGs work, and also
include an overview of how CERN uses CentOS and OpenStack in their research
into the secrets of the universe. We would love to see you there.
OpenStack PTG

Last month, the OpenStack PTG was held in Denver, Colorado. The PTG - the
Project Teams Gathering - is the meeting where the next version of
OpenStack is planned out.

While there, Rich had the opportunity to interview a number of the project
teams, and several PTLs - Project Technical Leads - about what was
accomplished in Pike, and what's coming in Queens.

These interviews are now all published on the RDO YouTube channel
<http://youtube.com/RDOCommunity> for your viewing pleasure.

If you'd like to do an interview for the RDO YouTube channel, about your
work in OpenStack, please just let Rich know <rbowen at redhat.com> and we can
set up a time.
Other events

If you're in France or Germany (or anywhere nearby) you should go to OpenStack
Days France <http://www.openstackdayfrance.fr/> (November 21st) and OpenStack
Days Germany <https://www.openstack-dach.org/> (December 8th and 9th).
Tickets are still available, and the schedules look great. If you'd like to
represent RDO at either of these events, please get in touch with Rich for
information on how we can support you.

Other RDO events, including the many OpenStack meetups around the world,
are always listed on the RDO events page <http://rdoproject.org/events>. If
you have an RDO-related event, please feel free to add it by submitting a
pull request on Github
OpenStack SIG in Fedora

This week, Haïkel announced
<https://www.redhat.com/archives/rdo-list/2017-October/msg00026.html> a new
OpenStack SIG within the Fedora ecosystem. This will be focused on
packaging, testing, and maintaining OpenStack clients within Fedora, to
ensure that Fedora users have access to the latest tools to manage their
OpenStack clouds.

If you are interested in participating in this process, discussion and work
will be happening primarily on the RDO mailing list
Community meetings

Every Wednesday at 15:00 UTC, we have the weekly RDO community meeting on
the #RDO channel on Freenode IRC. The agenda for this meeting is posted
each week in a public etherpad
<https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/RDO-Meeting> and the minutes from the
meeting are posted on the RDO website
<https://www.rdoproject.org/community/community-meeting/>. If there's
something you'd like to see happen in RDO - a package that is missing, a
tool that you'd like to see included, or a change in how things are
governed - this is the best time and place to help make that happen.
