Greetings Stackers!

We're tracking a new blueprint this week: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/vmware-nova-cinder-support which is related to https://blueprints.launchpad.net/cinder/+spec/vmware-vmdk-cinder-driver on the cinder project. These two together will yield an important functional improvement. So, any help with getting these into havana-3 together would be much appreciated. 

Blueprints already targeted for Havana-3:
* https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/improve-vmware-disk-usage - started but depends on
** https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/vmware-image-clone-strategy - revising after review
* https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/multiple-clusters-managed-by-one-service - good progress 

We have had a lot of motion the last week. No less than seven patches are ready for some core-reviewer attention. 4 of them are just a click or two away from merging. As always, my goal in these top-two categories is to only list patches that are solid and ready to go.
