Excerpts from Sean Dague's message of 2014-06-16 05:15:54 -0700:
> Hacking 0.9 series was released pretty late for Juno. The entire check
> queue was flooded this morning with requirements proposals failing pep8
> because of it (so at 6am EST we were waiting 1.5 hrs for a check node).
> The previous soft policy with pep8 updates was that we set a pep8
> version basically release week, and changes stopped being done for style
> after first milestone.
> I think in the spirit of that we should revert the hacking requirements
> update back to the 0.8 series for Juno. We're past milestone 1, so
> shouldn't be working on style only fixes at this point.
> Proposed review here - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/100231/
> I also think in future hacking major releases need to happen within one
> week of release, or not at all for that series.

+1. Hacking is supposed to help us avoid redundant nit-picking in
reviews. If it places any large burden on developers, whether by merge
conflicting or backing up CI, it is a failure IMO.
