Development Focus

The Yoga-2 milestone will happen in next month, on 06 January, 2022.
Yoga-related specs should now be finalized so that teams can move
to implementation ASAP. Some teams observe specific deadlines on
the second milestone (mostly spec freezes): please refer to
<https://releases.openstack.org/yoga/schedule.html>for details.

General Information

Please remember that libraries need to be released at least once per
milestone period. At milestone 2, the release team will propose releases
for any library that has not been otherwise released since milestone 1.

Other non-library deliverables that follow the cycle-with-intermediary
release model should have an intermediary release before milestone-2.
Those who haven't will be proposed to switch to the cycle-with-rc model,
which is more suited to deliverables that are released only once per cycle.

At milestone-2 we also freeze the contents of the final release. If you
have a new deliverable that should be included in the final release, you
should make sure it has a deliverable file in:
You should request a beta release (or intermediary release) for those new
deliverables by milestone-2. We understand some may not be quite ready
for a full release yet, but if you have something minimally viable to
get released it would be good to do a 0.x release to exercise the release
tooling for your deliverables. See the MembershipFreeze description for
more details: https://releases.openstack.org/ 

Finally, now may be a good time for teams to check on any stable
releases that need to be done for your deliverables. If you have
bugfixes that have been backported, but no stable release getting
those. If you are unsure what is out there committed but not released,
in the openstack/releases repo, running the command
"tools/list_stable_unreleased_changes.sh <cycle_name>" gives a nice report.
