Hello everyone,

The last development milestone of the Liberty development cycle,
"liberty-3", generally marks the end of the feature addition period and
the start of the stabilization / bugfixing period before final release.
It is now reached for all projects following the milestone-based release

The release management team directly manages a number of such OpenStack
projects, for which it published tarballs corresponding to the
milestone. You can find those source tarball downloads, as well as the
full list of new features and fixed bugs, at:

At this stage those projects are under Feature Freeze[1]: feature
addition, new configuration options (or other significant behavioral
changes) should not be merged without being approved by your project PTL
as exceptions. The goal is to facilitate testing and focus on bugfixing
and quality until the project can produce its first Liberty release

We are also under soft requirements freeze[2] (exceptions needed to bump
requirements or introduce a last-minute dependency) and String Freeze[3]
(limit the number of string changes to facilitate the work of translators).

Only 6 weeks before the end of the Liberty cycle !
