[release] Release countdown for week R-12 July 20 - July 24
Better late than never? Could have sworn I sent this last week.
The Victoria-2 milestone is next week, on July 30! Victoria-related
specs should now be finalized so that teams can move to implementation
ASAP. Some teams observe specific deadlines on the second milestone
(mostly spec freezes): please refer to
https://releases.openstack.org/victoria/schedule.html for details.
Libraries need to be released at least once per milestone period. Next
week, the release team will propose releases for any library that has not
been otherwise released since milestone 1. PTL's and release liaisons,
please watch for these and give a +1 to acknowledge them. If there is
some reason to hold off on a release, let us know that as well. A +1
would be appreciated, but if we do not hear anything at all by the end
of the week, we will assume things are OK to proceed.
Remember that non-library deliverables that follow the
cycle-with-intermediary release model should have an intermediary
release before milestone-2. Those who haven't will be proposed to switch
to the cycle-with-rc model, which is more suited to deliverables that
are released only once per cycle.
Next week is also the deadline to freeze the contents of the final
release. All new 'Victoria' deliverables need to have a deliverable file
and need to have done a release by milestone-2.
