We're now past non-priority feature freeze. I've started going through 
some blueprints and -2ing them if they still have outstanding changes. I 
haven't gone through the full list yet (we started with 100).

I'm also building a list of potential FFE candidates based on:

1. How far along the change is (how ready is it?), e.g. does it require 
a lot of change yet? Does it require a Tempest test and is that passing 
already? How much of the series has already merged and what's left?

2. How much core reviewer attention has it already gotten?

3. What kind of priority does it have, i.e. if we don't get it done in 
Newton do we miss something in Ocata? Think things that start 
deprecation/removal timers.

The plan is for the nova core team to have an informal meeting in the 
#openstack-nova IRC channel early next week, either Tuesday or 
Wednesday, and go through the list of potential FFE candidates.

Blueprints that get exceptions will be checked against the above 
criteria and who on the core team is actually going to push the changes 

I'm looking to get any exceptions completed within a week, so targeting 
Wednesday 7/13. That leaves a few days for preparing for the meetup.
