That is fine from the POV of a general blueprint. In this case though we explicitly approved an exception to the freeze for this blueprint. This (w|sh)ould only have been done if we considered it high enough priority and with a commitment to actually review it. ie we should not approve exceptions to freeze dates for things we don't care about. > Note that I'm not a core drivers team member. Which I think is an issue in itself. With all the problems we have with review bandwidth, the idea that we should pick an even smaller subset of 'nova core' to form a 'nova drivers' group is broken. I was rather suprised myself when I first learnt that 'nova drivers' even existed (by finding I could not +2 specs). I was lucky that Mikal proposed to add me to nova drivers, so it ultimately didn't impact me. Looking at nova core though, I really don't see why some members of nova core should be privileged in reviewing & approving specs, over others. IMHO, the idea of the smaller nova drivers group should die and everyone in nova core should share that responsibility.
