As you know we have been driving forward on the stack forge project and
it¹s our intention to continue to support it over time, plus reinvigorate
the GCE APIs when that makes sense. So we¹re supportive of deprecating
from Nova to focus on EC2 API in Nova.  I also think it¹s good for these
APIs to be able to iterate outside of the standard release cycle.
