Daniel, Thanks for the well thought out and thorough proposal to help Nova.
As an OpenStack operator/developer since Cactus time, it has definitely gotten harder and harder to get fixes in Nova for small bugs that we find running at scale with production systems. This forces us to maintain more and more custom patches in-house (or for longer periods of time). The huge amount of time necessary to shepherd patches through review discourages additional devs from contributing patches because of the amount of time investment required. I believe whatever we can do to improve the ability to fix technical debt within Nova and both keep and grow the non-core contributors of Nova would be greatly beneficial. Thanks! Nate
