Produced- release notes - Stef may provide or in an FAQ, good datapoint we canturn into a story by explaining what it is - useful before we do prepcalls - have for sure, good to know. Every stat how it compares toFolsom - emphasize that as well.StefWe have completed ~230 for Grizzly, still haven't found a way to check previous releases though, sorry.Pre-release activity board - before had to go 3rd party - now can goself-serve/dashboard - value in our system is better (Olo? Makes moreapple/apple companisons). We have built a system for members of thecommunity where/what companies are participating - bottom line:opportunity to talk about various things - new activity board(benefits of which, better insight on ecosystem/developers/community -we're responding by developing tools where we are responding to buildto keep everything on track.) Stef - send a screenshot...paragraphdescribing it as well. Stef follow-upThe pre-release site is here: It's made of two sides1) Charts for Development ActivitySee what's happening inside OpenStack Community, who's contributing code, the speed for solving issues and more. This part is being developed by Bitergia, it will look initially like, charting the activity of people, companies, across time, for each of the tools we use (git, launchpad bug tracker, mailing list). Support for gerrit is being added.2) Browse Development ActivitySearch across all tools used to develop OpenStack: reviews and changes, bugs and comments, browse people and companies. This part is being developed with zAgile, their tool allows for search and navigation across projects. Here we can drill down for each action in all the tools we use (commit, code review, bug status change) and see the actors involved (people or company) and the related actions.
