Personally I don't care about the new projects...if I'm not using them I can 
ignore them, and if I am using them then I'll pay attention to them.

But within existing established projects there are some odd gaps.

Like nova hasn't implemented cold-migration or resize (or live-migration) of an 
instance with LVM local storage if you're using libvirt.

Image properties get validated, but not flavor extra-specs or instance metadata.

Cinder theoretically supports LVM/iSCSI, but if you actually try to use it for 
anything stressful it falls over.

Some of the database pruning tools don't cover all the tables so the DB gets 
bigger over time.

I'm sure there are historical reasons for all of these, I'm just pointing out 
some of the things that were surprising to me.
