Welcome to our regular release countdown email!
As stable/pike branches are now (mostly) cut, focus should be on
checking current Pike release candidates for release-critical issues,
fix those in master, backport the fix to stable/pike and issue new
release candidates before the publication deadline on R-1 (August 24).
If your team attends the PTG in Denver, you should also prepare the
topics for discussion at the event.
Probably due to a busy gate, a number of cycle-with-milestones
deliverables are still missing their RC1 and stable/pike branch,
preventing the thawing of the requirements repository:
designate (+ designate-dashboard), freezer-web-ui, heat, manila
searchlight (+ searchlight-ui), trove (+ trove-dashboard)
In addition to that list, mistral and nova have proposed RC1 tags that
just need to be un-WIPped and processed.
Please see last week release countdown email and from the
requirements team for instructions, if you missed them.
Note that stable/pike are under hard StringFreeze, in order to let the
I18N team do the translation work in good conditions. No change in
translatable strings is allowed at this point.
