The quality designation is really important for the operator community who are 
trying to work out what we can give to our end users.

Offering early helps to establish the real-life experience and give good 
feedback on the designs.  However, the operator then risks leaving their users 
orphaned if the project does not get a sustainable following or significant 
disruption if the APIs change.

The packaging teams are key here as well. When do Ubuntu and Red Hat work out 
the chain of pre-reqs etc. to produce installable packages, packstack/juju tool 
support ?

We do need to have some way to show that an layer #2 package is ready for prime 
time production and associated criteria (packages available, docs available, >1 
company communities, models for HA and scale, …)
