So, according to https://governance.openstack.org/tc/reference/tags/stable_follows-policy.html#deprecation, as Trove PTL of Train dev cycle, can I ask to remove stable:follows-policy tag for Trove?---Cheers,Lingxian KongCatalyst Cloud Team 

As Matt, Naser mentioned, you can do that anytime. But I am concerned that, adding the tag is always good but removing is definitely not. I want to understand, is this the only case based on which you are taking the decision to remove the  "stable:follows-policy" tag ? Or you think trove will have/need more cases like that?
