I was traveling much of last week, so we have two weeks of blog posts to catch you up on, and there's some really good ones in here.

"RDO Manager" is now "TripleO", by K Rain Leander

Because of its unique branding and name, one might assume that "RDO Manager" is not TripleO - perhaps it has additional downstream patches or maybe they're entirely different projects. You would not be alone because the community, the users and the developers alike have shared their confusion on this topic.

What Can Talk To What on the OpenStack Message Broker by Adam Young

If a hypervisor is compromised, the Nova Compute instance running on that node is also compromised. If the compute instance is compromised, then its access to the Message Queue has to be considered tainted as well. What degree of risk does this pose?

Setup DVR on RDO Liberty Controller && 2(x)Computes ML2/OVS/VLAN landscape by Boris Derzhavets

Just a reminder in Juno and Kilo DVR was available for deployments using VXLAN tunneling and required l2population activation on all nodes.

Attempt to use old templates for answer file just does all configs properly only on Controller/Network Node.
