Hi, I devoured this thread, so much it was interesting and full of insights. It's not news that we've been pondering about this in the Neutron project for the past and existing cycle or so.
Likely, this effort is going to take more than two cycles, and would require a very focused team of people working closely together to address this (most likely the core team members plus a few other folks interested). One question I was unable to get a clear answer was: what happens to existing/new bug fixes and features? Would the codebase go in lockdown mode, i.e. not accepting anything else that isn't specifically targeting this objective? Just using NFV as an example, I can't imagine having changes supporting NFV still being reviewed and merged while this process takes place...it would be like shooting at a moving target! If we did go into lockdown mode, what happens to all the corporate-backed agendas that aim at delivering new value to OpenStack? Should we relax what goes into the stable branches, i.e. considering having a Juno on steroids six months from now that includes some of the features/fixes that didn't land in time before this process kicks off? I like the end goal of having a leaner Nova (or Neutron for that matter), it's the transition that scares me a bit!
