It has *some* value in cross-project coordination. It's a way to describe common points in time. Saying "it should be done by kilo-1" is easier than using random dates that vary across projects. Another value is to exercise the release automation more regularly. Agree on the pain of maintaining milestone plans though, which is why I propose we get rid of most of it in Liberty. That will actually be discussed at the cross-project meeting today: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Release_Cycle_Management/Liberty_Tracking Cheers, -- Thierry Carrez (ttx) __________________________________________________________________________ OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions) Unsubscribe: openstack-dev-requ...@lists.openstack.org?subject:unsubscribe http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
