Trevor - Thanks for the early heads-up, some SLA/sanity requests from me below:

I require that there will be a pre-staging environment that we can test prior 
to shifting this change into production environment. This is to avoid OPNFV 
production discontinuity as experienced before.
If you could provide a pre-staging dummy area - which the community
could evaluate before the production upgrade is exercised we could likely 
out-rule issues with upgrades we have seen in the past.
Me - Jonas Bjurel, and others in my team: Stefan Berg, Fatih Degirmency - would 
be happy to smoke-test the pre-staging environment!
Other obvious things around change-management: Complete back-up, 24/7 
preparedness on roll-back, communication on the changes and any measures needed 
by the consumers of the service, and of course logging of everything 
performed/issues during the evaluation of the change, and from the change it 

Me and others are happy to help such that these changes flow seamlessly work - 
going forward.

Hope this helps!
