Yesterday was the RC1 deadline, and we have not seen a release request for
either Barbican or Heat.
If there is some blocking reason for waiting on these, please let us know as
soon as possible. Otherwise, please submit a release request with branching for
stable/queens to the openstack/releases repo.
RC's are needed to help test and package, so we need to get something out there
relatively soon. If we do not see a release request from these teams, the
release team will need to force a release and branch creation by this coming
Tuesday, the 13th. We would prefer to not be the ones doing that though.
Thanks for your attention. Please let us know if there are any questions or
OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions)
