Hi folks and especially Magnum Core,

Magnum Milestone #1 should released early this coming week.  I wanted to 
kick off discussions around milestone #2 since Milestone #1 development 
is mostly wrapped up.

The milestone #2 blueprints:

The overall goal of Milestone #1 was to make Magnum usable for 
developers.  The overall goal of Milestone #2 is to make Magnum usable 
by operators and their customers.  To do this we are implementing 
blueprints like multi-tenant, horizontal-scale, and the introduction of 
coreOS in addition to Fedora Atomic as a Container uOS.  We are also 
plan to introduce some updates to allow bays to be more scalable.  We 
want bays to scale to more nodes manually (short term), as well as 
automatically (longer term).  Finally we want to tidy up some of the 
nit-picky things about Magnum that none of the core developers really 
like at the moment.  One example is the magnum-bay-status blueprint 
which will prevent the creation of pods/services/replicationcontrollers 
until a bay has completed orchestration via Heat.  Our final significant 
blueprint for milestone #2 is the ability to launch our supported uOS on 
bare metal using Nova's Ironic plugin and the baremetal flavor.  As 
always, we want to improve our unit testing from what is now 70% to ~80% 
in the next milestone.

Please have a look at the blueprints and feel free to comment on this 
thread or in the blueprints directly.  If you would like to see 
different blueprints tackled during milestone #2 that feedback is 
welcome, or if you think the core team[1] is on the right track, we 
welcome positive kudos too.

If you would like to see what we tackled in Milestone #1, the code 
should be tagged and ready to run Tuesday January 20th.  Master should 
work well enough now, and the developer quickstart guide is mostly correct.

The Milestone #1 bluerpints are here for comparison sake:
