FOSDEM and CfgMgmtCamp and Contributor Summit happened earlier this month!

We're not quite ready to share the videos with you yet, but we promise that will be in a near-future Bullhorn for you. Huge thanks to @cybette, Kris & Tosh, the FOSDEM team, and Mark our video guy!

I'll also be doing an event write-up as soon as I possibly can, so look out for that. In the meantime, put this in your calendar for next year!

As mentioned in The Bullhorn #90, people stepped up and started to maintain google.cloud again. Therefor, we had a vote on cancelling the removal process - which was accepted. So this collection will stay in the community package!

Thanks toumorokoshi for reaching out to us and resurrecting the collection!

community.docker 1.10.15 (changelog) has been released. This is the final release of the 1.x.y release stream; the stable-1 branch is now End of Life. If you are still using it, please upgrade to community.docker 2.x.y or (better) 3.x.y. If you are still using Ansible 2.9 or ansible-base 2.10, you will have to use 2.x.y, as 3.x.y no longer supports these versions.

Are you interested in helping improve the navigation and layout of "docs.ansible.com"? Do you think you can help connect users with information in the docs more efficiently? If so, the Ansible community team invites you to contribute to this repository. We plan to use this repository to overhaul the landing pages for Ansible community documentation and create a more intuitive and modern user experience. See you in the PR queue!

Looking to help out in Ansible but not sure where to start? Take a look at some easyfix or good first issues: * across multiple collections * for all other Ansible projects

The Community will be happy to get your ideas on the Role or playbook-focused collections: include in the Ansible package or not? community topic!

andersson007_ contributed

As the concerns about future of the Ansible package continue to show up, the Community Certification instead of collection inclusion? community topic has been created. Let's discuss it!

The Ansible Cloud team is proposing a new way to manage cloud resources in a more declarative fashion. We're looking for community feedback on the project here.
