Thanks for being part of
the RDO community!
After a lot of work by the
TripleO team, we have Mitaka milestone 2 packages available for
RDO. To give it a try, you can use either Packstack or TripleO.
To get started, on a fresh CentOS or RHEL VM:
yum -y install yum-plugin-priorities
sudo wget http://trunk.rdoproject.org/centos7/delorean-deps.repo
sudo wget http://trunk.rdoproject.org/centos7/current-passed-ci/delorean.repo
Then for a packstack-based install, start with step 2 of
the quickstart, or, for TripleO-based installs,
see the TripleO
quickstart or the TripleO quickstart USB key.
And now, were forging ahead towards milestone 3, which is scheduled for
the week of August 29th. We're planning a test day for September 8th and 9th to ensure that it's the
best version of RDO yet.
We've had some great blog
posts from the RDO community over the last month. You will want to
particularly check out these:

Happy Birthday OpenStack!
Six years ago in July,
OpenStack was announced at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention. In
that time, it's grown from 2 companies to over 300, and from a handful of projects to more than 50.
We hope you had an opportunity to attend one of the many 6th birthday meetups around the world. I attended ours
right here in Lexington, Kentucky where we had about 35
OpenStack enthusiasts from the University of Kentucky College of
Engineering, where OpenStack, and a 6PB Ceph cluster, support the
various research projects around the University, as well as
student projects in the school of Computer Science.
We also had a good turnout in Manchester, England, Washington, DC, and many other places.
If you attended one of these meetups, do share your photos
and event reports with us in the RDO G+ community.
Even if you can't make it
to the major events where RDO has a presence, we're often at
smaller events around the world.
We'll be at OpenStack SV next week in Mountain
View. Drop by the Red Hat booth and ask about RDO. And we'll be at OpenStack East in New York, August 23rd
and 24th. There, too, we'll be in the Red Hat booth.
Looking a little further out, we'll also be at the upcoming PyCon in India in September, and at LinuxCon in Berlin in October, as well as, of
course, at OpenStack
Barcelona in October.
Other RDO events, including the many OpenStack meetups
around the world, are always listed at

TripleO - which stands for
'OpenStack On OpenStack' - is a an OpenStack deployment and
management tool, intended to simplify the process of deploying
production OpenStack clouds.
TripleO is a big focus in this cycle, and if you haven't
gotten up to speed yet, there's a great way to do so. Someone has
collected an entire YouTube channel of TripleO videos.
Next month, in Buffalo, NY, Rain Leander will be giving a
talk at Code Daze about TripleO, and being a TripleO contributor.
If you're in the area, consider attending. Details are at codedaze.io.
Every Wednesday at 15:00
UTC, we have the weekly RDO community meeting on the #RDO channel on
Freenode IRC. And at 15:00 UTC Thursdays, we have the CentOS Cloud
SIG Meeting on #centos-devel.
Keep in touch
There's lots of ways to
stay in in touch with what's going on in the RDO community. The
best ways are …
- IRC - #rdo on Freenode.irc.net
- Puppet module development -
Thanks again for being part
