Pike release

Pike release

  • As of the Pike release, the complete documentation suite that resided within the openstack-manuals repository has been reworked, and the content of the following guides has been moved to the project team repositories:
    • Installation Guide
    • Administration Guide
    • End User Guide
    • Command-Line (CLI) Reference
