Wir freuen uns sehr, diesen Monat zum OpenStack Summit Berlin in

nicht immer!

Back to English!

As we said, we’re attending OpenStack Summit Berlin this month, celebrating
all the OpenStack things, and ready to embrace the future of the RDO

Housekeeping ItemsVolunteers Needed for the RDO Booth at OpenStack Summit

We are gearing up for OpenStack Summit Berlin
<https://www.openstack.org/summit/berlin-2018/> where we'll have our
regular presence within the Red Hat booth. This fall we'll continue the
ManageIQ / RDO demo we started last year and we'd love to see your demos,
too! If you've got something you'd like to demo via video OR LIVE because
you're not afraid of ANYTHING, sign up

We're also looking for people to spend their precious free time answering
questions <https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/berlin-summit-community-pod> at
the RDO booth. 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.
RDO ChangesThe Future of the RDO Community

Just in case you might have any further questions regarding IBM’s
acquisition of Red Hat
especially with regards to the RDO Community, Brian Proffitt published an
article to focus on how some are wondering what this acquisition will mean
for the many upstream projects in which Red Hat participates and sponsors
Community NewsCommunity 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.

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
OpenStack NewsBringing The Community Together

Jeremy Stanley recently announced over SEVERAL mailling lists
 that “…the openstack, openstack-dev, openstack-sigs and
openstack-operators mailing lists (to which this is being sent) will be
replaced by a new openstack-discuss at lists.openstack.org mailing list.
The new list is open for subscriptions now
but is not yet accepting posts until Monday November 19 and it's strongly
recommended to subscribe before that date so as not to miss any messages
posted there. The old lists will be configured to no longer accept posts
starting on Monday December 3, but in the interim posts to the old lists
will also get copied to the new list so it's safe to unsubscribe from them
any time after the 19th and not miss any messages.”
Join CloudKitty On The First Friday Of Each Month At 15h00 UTC

CloudKitty <https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/CloudKitty> is the project name
of a Rating-as-a-Service project. Meetings will happen in the #cloudkitty
channel on Freenode. They should (for now) be held on the first Friday of
each month at 15h00 UTC
<https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/cloudkitty-meeting-topics>. Of course,
the time / frequency can be adapted to what suits the community the best.
These meetings were a thing in the project's early days and have slowly
stopped, which we really regret.

This is part of a larger effort to get more in touch with the community. We
would gladly welcome new contributors and ANY contribution of ANY kind -
bug report, review, documentation suggestion/update, commit - is welcome.

   *ServerlessDays Amsterdam The Netherlands 29 March 2019* ServerlessDays
   <https://serverlessdays.nl/> started life as JeffConf, a tongue in cheek
   conference in the spirit of Paul Johnston’s blog post, “Serverless is just
   a name. We could have called it Jeff”, an attempt to move beyond the
   Serverless buzzword and focus on the practical use of function as a service
   platforms and the value they provide. It is a one day, community focused,
   single track event centred on real world Serverless based solutions. It’s
   about fostering a community and helping all of us learn from each other as
   we embrace a new way of building applications. CFP closes at November
