Excerpts from Dmitry Tantsur's message of 2015-12-04 17:38:43 +0100:
> Hi!
> As you all probably know, we've switched to reno for managing release 
> notes. What it also means is that the release team has stopped managing 
> milestones for us. We have to manually open/close milestones in 
> launchpad, if we feel like. I'm a bit tired of doing it for inspector, 
> so I'd prefer we stop it. If we need to track release-critical patches, 
> we usually do it in etherpad anyway. We also have importance fields for 
> bugs, which can be applied to both important bugs and important features.
> During a quick discussion on IRC Sam mentioned that neutron also dropped 
> using blueprints for tracking features. They only use bugs with RFE tag 
> and specs. It makes a lot of sense to me to do the same, if we stop 
> tracking milestones.
> For both ironic and ironic-inspector I'd like to get your opinion on the 
> following suggestions:
> 1. Stop tracking milestones in launchpad
> 2. Drop existing milestones to avoid confusion

Please don't delete anything older than Mitaka.


> 3. Stop using blueprints and move all active blueprints to bugs with RFE 
> tags; request a bug URL instead of a blueprint URL in specs.
> So in the end we'll end up with bugs for tracking user requests, specs 
> for complex features and reno for tracking for went into a particular 
> release.
> Important note: if you vote for keeping things for ironic-inspector, I 
> may ask you to volunteer in helping with them ;)
