[openstack-dev] [nova][placement] Freezing placement for extraction

The captains of placement extraction have declared readiness to begin
the process of seeding the new repository (once  has finished
merging). As such, we are freezing development in the affected portions
of the openstack/nova repository until this process is completed. We're
relying on our active placement reviewers noticing any patches that
touch these "affected portions" and, if that reviewer is not a nova
core, bringing them to the attention of one, so we can put a -2 on it.
Once the extraction is complete , any such frozen patches should be
abandoned and reproposed to the openstack/placement repository.
Since there will be an interval during which placement code will exist
in both repositories, but before $world has cut over to using
openstack/placement, it is possible that some crucial fix will still
need to be merged into the openstack/nova side. In this case, the fix
must be proposed to *both* repositories, and the justification for its
existence in openstack/nova made clear.
For more details on the technical aspects of the extraction process,
refer to this thread .
For information on the procedural/governance process we will be
following, see .
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns, either via
this thread or in #openstack-placement.
 meaning that we've merged the initial glut of patches necessary to
repath everything and get tests passing
