Hi, this is just a quick note to let you know that Liberty specs are now open for Nova. By open I mean that it is possible to upload such a spec, but I wouldn't expect to see much review effort on these until Kilo is ready.
If authors of previously approved specs (Juno or Kilo) want to use the "previously-approved: <release>" commit tag, that will make fast tracking re-approvals easier. For ease of reference, here's the guidelines we used in Kilo, although the Liberty PTL might want to tweak these: Blueprints approved in Juno or Kilo =========================== For specs approved in Juno or Kilo, there is a fast track approval process for Liberty. The steps to get your spec re-approved are: - Copy your spec from the specs/<oldrelease>/approved directory to the specs/liberty/approved directory. Note that if we declared your spec to be a "partial" implementation in Kilo, it might be in the implemented directory. This was rare however. - Update the spec to match the new template - Commit, with the "Previously-approved: <oldrelease>" commit message tag - Upload using git review as normal Reviewers will still do a full review of the spec, we are not offering a rubber stamp of previously approved specs. However, we are requiring only one +2 to merge these previously approved specs, so the process should be a lot faster. A note for core reviewers here -- please include a short note on why you're doing a single +2 approval on the spec so future generations remember why. Trivial blueprints ================== We are not requiring specs for trivial blueprints in Liberty. Instead, create a blueprint in Launchpad at https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+addspec and target the specification to Liberty. New, targetted, unapproved specs will be reviewed in weekly nova meetings once Kilo has been finished. If it is agreed they are indeed trivial in the meeting, they will be approved. Other proposals =============== For other proposals, the process is the same as Juno and Kilo... Propose a spec review against the specs/kilo/approved directory and we'll review it from there. -- Rackspace Australia __________________________________________________________________________ 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
