OpenStack around the web
There's a lot of interesting stuff being written about OpenStack. Here's a sampling:

- OpenStack creates a structure for managing change without a benevolent dictator: Can education and peer review keep a huge open source project on track?
- How to effectively contribute to an open source project such as OpenStack Neutron: It's not just about committing code; being a good communicator matter too.
- Juno updates – security: A quick summary of security-related work across several OpenStack projects.
- DBaaS, OpenStack and Trove 101: An introduction to the basics of databases in the OpenStack cloud.
And just for fun:
- OpenStack reactions: My reaction when someone nitpicks on my reviews.
Here's a sample of some of the most active discussions this week on the OpenStack developers' listserv. For a more in-depth look, why not dive in yourself?
