The response to this has been mostly, "meh, if you like." Since I'm now
the guy who gets to track the paperwork, I would like to give it a try
for a cycle. If it doesn't work, or imposes too much process, or if
people otherwise hate it, we can trash it, no harm no foul.
To that end, I have proposed a patch  with some tooling and
documentation. If you do nothing else, please read the (updated) section
on "Backlog specifications"  and the (new) section on "Abandoning a
I have also eaten my own dogfood and proposed patches to abandon the
four existing backlog specs . I added those specs' original authors
and assignees as reviewers (fwiw; some are surely inactive at this point).
One of those had a Train spec that sounds eerily similar  so I
suggested "move-spec" there.
There's also a Train spec the author told me was intended for "future"
 so I suggested that be moved to the backlog directory.
I ask for help from nova-core to review and merge the tooling (including
Mel's blueprint counting utility  which has been ready for a while)
and the scrub patches.
Moving forward, hopefully we can make it a recurring agenda item at PTGs
to review backlog specs and promote, defer, or abandon them as appropriate.
