Hi all,

This is an introductory email of what hopefully becomes a regular series to
help digest development efforts in the Airship community.

In case you missed it, our first community design call was held Thursday,
2018-08-30.  Here's the recording [0].

On to the updates:

The new airship-treasuremap repo [1] is intended to hold a realistic,
up-to-date example of Airship configuration.  It's still evolving, but will
be supported by an AT&T-provided CICD pipeline to help automate and
validate component updates. This should help ensure it remains a reasonable
starting place for operators.

Armada now uses Helm version 2.10.  This upgrade enables new features,
including an effort in OpenStack Helm to leverage Tiller to generate
certificates.  This is a breaking change that requires coordinating updates
Tiller and Armada (Tiller first!).

Shipyard supports a couple of new actions: update_software [2] and
redploy_server [4].  There is still work to do, especially around
redeploy_server, but these should improve the Airship operational

Finally, there have been a number of security improvements moving through
the pipeline [6-5].  These improvements are part of a theme to harden
Airship-based deployments across the board, so keep an eye out for future
work in this area.

Feel free to respond in this thread with questions or comments about
current and future development themes.
