Yes, I imagine a temporary slow-down on new feature development makes sense. However, I don't think it has to be across the board. Things should be considered case by case, like usual. For example, a feature that requires invasive changes to the virt driver interface might have a harder time during this transition, but a more straight forward feature isolated to the internals of a driver might be fine to let through. Like anything else, we have to weight cost/benefit. > 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? No ... maybe I misunderstand the suggestion, but I definitely would not be in favor of a Juno branch with features that haven't landed in master. -- Russell Bryant _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
