Housekeeping Items Volunteers Needed for the RDO Pod at Open Infrastructure
Summit Shanghai

We are gearing up for Open Infrastructure Summit Shanghai where we'll have
our regular presence within the Red Hat booth. This fall, Red Hat doesn’t
have as much space, so we won’t be offering any demos, but we're definitely
looking for people to spend their precious free time answering questions
<https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/shanghai-summit-community-pod> at the RDO

If you're attending, please consider spending one or more of your free
moments with us. Questions run the gamut from "What's RDO?" to "I found a
bug in Neutron and need help troubleshooting it." Of course, you're not
expected to know everything and you can always keep IRC open to access the
RDO Community for help! Plus, you get cool stuff! If you show up for three
or more shifts, we're going to hook you up with an RDO hoodie.

Reach out to Rain Leander on IRC (leanderthal) or email (rain at redhat.com)
for more information.

Community News Community Meetings

Every Tuesday at 15:00 UTC, we have a weekly *TripleO Community meeting* on
the #TripleO channel on Freenode IRC. The agenda for this meeting is posted
each week in a public etherpad
<https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/tripleo-meeting-items>. If there's
something you'd like to see happen within the TripleO Project, from the
quickstart to the dashboard, this is the best time and place to make that

Every Wednesday at 15:00 UTC, we have a 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.

Every Thursday at 15:00 UTC, there is a weekly *CentOS Cloud SIG meeting*
on the #centos-devel channel on Freenode IRC. The agenda for this meeting
is posted each week in a public etherpad
<https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/centos-cloud-sig> and the minutes from
the meeting are posted on the RDO website
<https://www.rdoproject.org/contribute/cloud-sig-meeting/>. This meeting
makes sense for people that are involved in packaging OpenStack for CentOS
and for people that are packaging OTHER cloud infra thingies (OpenNebula,
CloudStack, Euca, etc) for CentOS. “Alone we can do so little; together we
can do so much.” - Helen Keller
