Since Cinder uses BP+spec, the process is described on the wiki page: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Blueprints#Spec_.2B_Blueprints_lifecycle If it helps, I'd consider the spec and the blueprint as "one" element made of two pieces. The spec needs to be "approved" and its corresponding blueprint needs to be approved and have a priority, deadline/milestone assigned. If any of these attributes is missing, the feature is not going to be reviewed. Blueprints and their attributes 'priority' and 'milestone' are used to track the status of the release. The reviewers use BPs to identify the code that they need to review. For example, https://launchpad.net/cinder/+milestone/kilo-3 I've tried to piece the history of your experience from the links you provided: - you submitted the spec in November 2014 - the spec was approved on Jan 6, 2015 (from https://review.openstack.org/#/c/136253/) - the spec references two blueprints, one for Cinder, one of Cinder-client; both BPs were created at the end of February - none of the BP have a milestone set - you submitted code related to the approved spec between Jan 6 and today I have the impression that you may have missed a step in the BP+spec process. I have tried to find the documentation for this process myself and I had a hard time, too. > Besides, who is eligible to define/modify the priority in the list, > only PTL or any core?

The project team leaders (PTL) are ultimately responsible to set the priorities, although the decision is always a consensual decision of the core teams.
