Hello Everyone!It's that time of the year once again! It's time to start thinking about calling out 'cycle-highlights' in your deliverables!

As PTLs, you probably get many pings towards the end of every release cycle by various parties (marketing, management, journalists, etc) asking for highlights of what is new and what significant changes are coming in the new release. By putting them all in the same place it makes them easy to reference because they get compiled into a pretty website like this from the last few releases: Ussuri[1], Victoria[2].
We don't need a fully fledged marketing message, just a few highlights (3-4 ideally), from each project team. Looking through your release notes might be a good place to start. 
The deadline for cycle highlights is the end of the R-5 week [3] on September 3.How To Reminder:
-------------------------Simply add them to the deliverables/$RELEASE/$PROJECT.yaml in the openstack/releases repo like this:   cycle-highlights:     - Introduced new service to use unused host to mine bitcoin.The formatting options for this tag are the same as what you are probably used to with Reno release notes.Also, you can check on the formatting of the output by either running locally:   tox -e docsAnd then checking the resulting doc/build/html/$RELEASE/highlights.html file or the output of the build-openstack-sphinx-docs job under html/$RELEASE/highlights.html.

Feel free to add Kendall Nelson (diablo_rojo) as a reviewer on your patches.
Can't wait to see you all have accomplished this release! 
Thanks :)
