This post is based on the closing keynote I gave for PyTennessee in February 2018, where I talked about how the governance of an open source project impacts the health of the project, and some lessons we learned in building the OpenStack community that can be applied to other projects. The presentation was not recorded.

reno: A new way to manage release notes - Europython 2018

Yesterday I delivered a presentation at EuroPython describing how reno works and why we created it for OpenStack. reno is a tool for managing release notes in projects that support multiple branches of development, and releases, simultaneously. It solves the problem of managing release notes within patches that fix bugs, and makes it easier to cherry-pick changes between branches (allowing backports or forward ports). This talk will cover the requirements, and constraints, that led us to design and build reno.
