[openstack-dev] [nova] minimum review period for functional changes that break backwards compatibility

Is there a mechanism to tag changes as being potentially more appropriate for the more ops related profiles ? I'm thinking more when someone proposes a change they suspect could have an operations impact, they could highlight this as being one for particular focus.

How about an OpsImpact tag ?
