Well folks, I put in some long hours last week just to try and get something in for Havana-2. It looks like every blueprint we were working on has been moved out to Havana-3. Havana-3 is September 6th. But, following my highly subjective formula ... I'd say if you aren't to a point you *think* you are done by August 15th I would say there is little chance you'll make it through review in time for Havana at all.

Here's what we're watching...

Blueprints *moved* to Havana-3:
* https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/improve-vmware-disk-usage - started but depends on
** https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/vmware-image-clone-strategy - revising after review
* https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/multiple-clusters-managed-by-one-service - good progress 

It's not all bad news. The good news is that for Havana-2 we got fixes committed for some very important bugs!

Havana-2 Bugs FIXED!

* https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1178369
* https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1183192
* https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1183452

* https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1180779

* https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1186944
* https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1192256

If you've not looked at +bug/1186944 I suggest you do. It turns out that this patch is really really critical for real-world debugging and troubleshooting work. The patch takes the old instance-00ffaa0011 (hex code for row index) based instance names and replaces them with a UUID instead! This seems trivial but it actually makes it so much easier to figure out what's going on when you have to do real troubleshooting work for people. So I'm really for back-porting this one ASAP. Good job Yaguang Tang!

Personally, I'll be finishing up my blueprint work and working on one bug this week, once that's done, I'll shift the bulk of my attention to doing reviews. I'll need someone to run the meeting in IRC for me on July 24th. Any volunteers?
