As the client deadline and milestone 3 day winds down here, I wanted to do a
quick check on where things stand before calling it a day.
This is according to script output, so I haven't actually looked into any
details so far. But according to the script, the follow cycle-with-intermediary
deliverables have not had a release done for rocky yet:
Just a reminder that we will need to force a release on these in order to get a
final point to branch stable/rocky.
Taking a look at ones that have done a release but have had more unreleased
commits since then, I'm also seeing several python-*client deliverables that
may be missing final releases.
