More progress this week:

  - The Diablo 4 milestone was release upsteam:

  - Thanks to the awesome combo of Chris Lalancette and Steven Dake 
    reviewing the packages, we have openstack-glance and 
    python-novaclient in updates-testing for F16:

    Your karma is needed! :-)

  - I've done more work on the Nova packaging:

    and am begging for similarly awesome volunteers to review it

  - I updated the "Getting started" wiki page to reflect some of the 
    packaging changes and the fact that python-migrate, novaclient and 
    glance are no longer needed in the yum repo:

  - I've filed a bunch of bugs against glance and novaclient, and 
    linked them from here:

  - My sqlalchemy 0.7.x migration fixes have been merged upstream into 

  - My logrotate related fix has been included in upstream glance:

  - I requested static UIDs and GIDs for swift, glance and nova:

  - I filed a bug requesting python-eventlet be updated:

  - I sent my python migrate fix upstream:

     but I've gotten a workaround for it into Nova now, so it's moot.

  - There was a massive packaging discussion upstream to which I tried
     to add my non-Debian/Ubuntu take :-)

Finally, I'm still hoping some friendly soul will join me as
co-maintainer of these packages. Do jump in, the water's warm!
