I am totally on board to run with this. I am just looking to collaborate
with the community on which direction to go. From much previous discussion
on this list, I've seen that showing up with a finished work item and
"throwing it over the wall" is frowned upon. We're intended to develop in
the open, and get feedback on proposed projects.

Perhaps if I throw out some more specific suggestions, people can vote or

I just want to get some suggestions of what topics would be most helpful to
cover. I don’t want to waste the short time that Gregg has to act as a
contributor to the project.

Some Visual Styles:

Whiteboard talk

"Talking head" interview



Tongue in cheek animation (xtranormal?)

 Sketchnotes (hand drawn animation with narration)

Some Possible Technical Topics:

What's new in 4.1, in 4.2

How to install (quick install, or advanced install)

Hypervisor installation (for each supported hypervisor)

How to set up networking

Top 10 interesting clouds people have set up

Conceptual overview of Cloudstack deployment (zones, pods, etc)

Datacenter concepts (what is a datacenter, what hardware will you need, how
does a rack correlate to a cloudstack pod, etc)

Overview of Cloudstack implementation architecture (code modules and their
relationships) – this one might be fairly short shelf life


(1)    A video that shows someone installing a host with a single ethernet
card that is going to be shared with the the managment and guest network
and public networks. How the VLANS would be setup on the sell or cisco
switch to accomplish this, or

(2)    A video showing someone installing a zone with the hosts having
separate nics for management/guest, public, and storage networks and an
example of setting up the VLANS, or

(3) A video showing different scenarios of setting up the VLANS with
different amount of nics in the hypervisor hosts.
