Get involved

RDO project is made of people like you! If you want to help out, here's how you can get involved.

If you are interested in our community, please have a look at our Code Review process and follow the discussion on the RDO mailing list where the discussion covers topics like installing, running, and using OpenStack on Red Hat based distributions.

Want to update this documentation? Great! All you need is a GitHub account, then visit the link at the very bottom of each page, entitled "Edit this page on GitHub".

There are many ways to get involved with the RDO community once you get started — the simplest way is to head over to the ask.openstack.org forum and help answer questions.

The Puppet modules used in packstack are on GitHub and packstack itself is on Stackforge. For a commercially-supported enterprise ready OpenStack solution, Red Hat provides Red Hat OpenStack Platform — an enterprise-class cloud platform based on OpenStack.

What is RDO?

An Openstack Distribution

RDO is a community of people using and deploying OpenStack on CentOS, Fedora, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. We have documentation to help get started, mailing lists where you can connect with other users, and community-supported packages of the most up-to-date OpenStack releases available for download.

If you are looking for enterprise-level support, or information on partner certification, Red Hat also offers Red Hat OpenStack Platform.

OpenStack relies on the underlying operating system and hypervisor — and what better operating system to build on than the industry's leading enterprise operating system? The RDO community is your one-stop community site for all things related to using OpenStack on Red Hat based platforms.
