At the start of the Newton release we agreed to keep the same deadlines
we had for Mitaka. I thought everyone knew what those were but there is
some confusion so I'll remind everyone.
As always, we will enforce a Feature Freeze on the N-3 milestone date:
September 1st . Only bugfixes and documentation changes are allowed
to merge after that date without an explicit feature freeze exception (FFE).
Also like before, we will enforce a feature proposal freeze 2 weeks
before the feature freeze, on Aug 18th. New feature patches must be
submitted to gerrit, with complete test coverage, and passing Jenkins by
New drivers must be submitted 3 weeks before the feature freeze, by Aug
11th, with the same requirements as above, and working CI. Additionally
driver refactor patches (any patch that significantly reworks existing
driver code) will be subject to the same deadline, because these patches
tend to take as much resources to review as a whole new driver.
"Large" new features must be submitted to gerrit 6 weeks before the
feature freeze, by Jul 21 (a week after the N-2 milestone ). The
definition of a "large" feature is the same as we defined it for Mitaka .
The manila specs repo is a new thing for Newton and for now there are no
deadlines for specs.
Also I want to remind everyone that changes to our "library" project
including python-manilaclient and manila-ui have the same deadlines. We
can't sneak features in the libraries after the core manila patches
land, they need to go in together.
