I love this time of year - the energy and passion that swells right around an upstream OpenStack release, and the weeks before an OpenStack Summit. Most of the year, people are heads down working on their particular part of the project, but as we near a release, there's a lot of interest in what's going on in the larger upstream.

There's also a huge surge in things to announce around the RDO community, as well as the upstream OpenStack community:

And, as every week, there are lots of OpenStack Meetups all over the world this week. Especially don't miss Perry Meyers' RDO Q&A at the Morgantown OpenStack Meetup.
