That raises the question of exactly *what* should be production ready. 
Openstack has so many options, so many configuration parameters, so many 

As an example, some people would argue that ceilometer is currently not 
production ready.

I recently stumbled over some stuff because the nova unit tests use 
sqlite and the regex matching is different from the "real" databases. 
Tempest tests would have caught it, but there were no tempest tests for 
that feature.

Has anyone considered having separate validation and release schedules 
for each component?  That way someone making a change in nova wouldn't 
be affected if someone broke cinder, and vice versa.  As it stands, I've 
had trivial patches held up for a week because the automated testing 
system was busted.
