I'm just going to pile on.

People keep asking us to focus on quality over landing features. It was
the #1 request from EVERY operator at the recent Ops summit. This is one
of that facets of doing that. It's hard, and it doesn't always feel good
to all the parties involved - but it's important.

Thank you, Mike, for sticking to your deadline. OpenStack will be better
for it.
