[openstack-dev] [Fuel] FFE for Ubuntu bootstrap

Hi folks,

Let me clarify the situation with Ubuntu bootstrap feature.

First of all, I would like to highlight that all functional commits for
this feature were merged. This means that starting from yesterday everyone
has an ability to switch to Ubuntu-based bootstrap manually and start using
it. So I do not see the risk in loosing testing cycles in the community.

The item which brought concerns on today status meeting was the enablement
of the feature by default. To do it, 2 patches have to be merged together:
* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/250662/ - main switch.
* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/251908/ - compatibility commit to QA
suite to comply with new bootstrap config format.

I would like to raise the question if we can have a feature freeze
exception for these 2 patches?

There are a couple of reasons why I consider it safer to merge these
patches several days later:
* There is a bug caught today which will block the tests to pass if we
switch to Ubuntu bootstrap by default:
* There were concerns that a lot of FF commit merges can bring instability
to QA suite. So it might be reasonable not to bring one more variable right
now and to enable ubuntu bootstrap by default when all automated tests are

I would like to ask engineering and QA leads to express their ideas on this.
