Community Blog Round-Up: 18 July

We’ve got three posts this week related to OpenStack – Adam Young’s insight on how to verify if a patch has been tested as a reviewer, while Zane Bitter takes a look at OpenStack’s multiple layers of services, and then Nir Yechiel introduces us to the five things we need to know about networking on Red Hat OpenStack Platform 13.
