Hi Team,

It might be a good project but affects the end-user, with so much pain to convert offine documentation to pdf. Why did the openstack community decide to take away the pdf documentation links? Is there any way to get a pdf directly from openstack rather than creating one? I think this is nothing but trouble and too much pain for the end-user.

Any chance you would be publishing the pdf links? I really agree to the openstack documentation team going ahead with their project on maintaining the same but for end users I would suggest the team do provide the pdf!!!
