[openstack-dev] [glance] respecting glance priorities

Hello Glancers,

I realize that the weekly priority mailing is a new thing for us, so
here's a quick reminder of how it works/what it's for.

Priorities are discussed and set at the weekly meeting and that gives us
all some focus for what to do in the coming week.

If you're a glance core: please attend to these items first, before
reviewing other items or merging other patches.

If you're not a glance core: priority items are important for the
project, so a high quality review on them is a good way to get yourself
noticed as an up-and-coming glance contributor.

These are called "priorities", not because they're the only things we're
working on, but because we want to get them completed *first*.

If you have a patch that didn't make the list, keep in mind that
OpenStack development is a community effort.  If you review other
people's patches, other people are more likely to review yours.

(And yes, what prompted this mailing is that I saw some patches merged
while many of the items below have been languishing for want of
attention.  There are about 18 hours until the weekly Glance meeting, it
would be nice to see them addressed. :) )

Here endeth the lesson.
