Ceph is a fully open source distributed storage system that started in a university lab, and has now reached 100K commits from nearly 800 contributors from all over the world. The use cases for Ceph are broad; from providing shared file systems in small private clusters, Ceph scales to meet the needs of even modern public clouds. Like other large OSS projects, a diverse set of tools and procedures have grown up around the user and development community.

This talk will explore the unique aspects of the size and scope of Ceph development process, and how the community is trying to improve the overall experience through documentation. The nature of many large software projects means documentation and reality are often drifting further apart, and this is especially true for projects like Ceph that are constantly evolving to meet the needs of new hardware systems and operating environments.
