This is to discuss the status of convergence patches and plans for
making it default.

The convergence gate jobs have been running successfully since more than
a month now. There were three integration tests skipped:
1. StackValidationTest
2. UpdateStackTest.test_stack_update_alias_type
3. UpdateStackTest.test_stack_update_alias_changes

2 and 3 of above are addressed by patches and have been running

The StackValidationTest fails because the test uses an image without
cfn-tools and convergence heat will wait for the signal to arrive.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/heat/+bug/1486281/comments/3 . This should be
fixed when we address https://bugs.launchpad.net/heat/+bug/1533176 . The
delete request can cancel the currently running check-resource requests
and it can then proceed without having to wait for resources to
complete. Also, if we use a proper image, this is is not seen.

There are few important patches in review which should close most of the

There are other bugs for which the patches should land soon. We should
plan to make convergence default earlier in m-3 phase so that we can
thoroughly test it before release. Let me know your opinion on this.
