Welcome to the extended Festivus edition of the countdown email. And now you're
gonna hear about it.

Development Focus

Teams should be focused on implementing planned work for the cycle. It is also
a good time to review those plans and reprioritize anything if needed based on
the what progress has been made and what looks realistic to complete in the
next few weeks.

General Information

The deadline for extra ATC's is coming up on January 12. If there is someone
that contributes to your project in a way that is not reflected by the usual
metrics, this is the last chance to have them recognized and therefore able to
vote in PTL elections. Extra-ATCs can be added by submitting an update to the
reference/projects.yaml file in the openstack/governance repo.
