Hi Sean! Thanks for raising this question.
As for Rally team, we are using self-tagging approach for several reasons: - Release notes Check the difference between https://github.com/openstack/nova/releases/tag/17.0.2 and https://github.com/openstack/rally-openstack/releases/tag/1.0.0. The first one includes just autogenerated metadata. The second one user-friendly notes (they are not ideal, but we are working on making them better). I do not find a way to add custom release notes via openstack/releases project. - Time Self-tagging the repo allows me to schedule/reschedule the release in whatever timeframe I decide without pinging anyone and waiting for folks to return from summit/PTG. I do not want to offend anyone, but we all know that such events take much time for preparation, holding and resting after it. Since there are no official OpenStack projects built on top of Rally, launching any of "integration" jobs while making Rally release is a wasting of time and money(resources). Also, such jobs can block to make a release. I remember sometimes it can take weeks to pass all gates with tons of rechecks https://github.com/openstack/releases#release-approval == "Freezes and no late releases". It is an opensource and I want to make releases on weekends if there is any reason for doing this (critical fix or the last blocking feature is merged or whatever). 2018-04-13 22:53 GMT+03:00 Sean McGinnis <sean.mcgin...@gmx.com>: > On Fri, Apr 13, 2018 at 02:46:59PM -0500, Sean McGinnis wrote: > > Hello teams, > > > > I am following up on some recently announced changes regarding governed > > projects and tagging rights.
