Re: Nova Installation and Projects


The tasks that you guys wrote out in the etherpad are exactly
what the Blueprints are meant for. If no one objects, I am
going to transfer those to blueprints so we can track them
with dates and dependencies. We can also link to wiki pages
for more details like you were going to as items shape up
(http://wiki.openstack.org/BluePrints). We can also assign folks to
blueprints to get summaries of who's doing what as well.
