[openstack-dev] [nova] We are now past the non-priority spec approval deadline

Yesterday was the non-priority spec approval deadline per the nova 
release schedule [1].

We have 80 approved blueprints for Newton so far [2]. In my opinion 
we're already way over-committed for the release, but we'll get done 
what we can. The upside to getting your spec approved in Newton is even 
if the code doesn't make this release, we've hashed out the spec so 
re-approval for Ocata should be easier.

For those non-priority specs which were not approved already, the Ocata 
specs directory is already available [3]. If you plan on continuing to 
push your spec for the Ocata release, update the change and move the 
spec from the specs/newton/approved/ directory to the 
specs/ocata/approved directory.

Note, however, that the nova-specs core team will not be actively 
reviewing specs for Ocata.

Any specs that aren't moved in the next week or two will be subject to 
being abandoned.

For specs that are related to priorities for Newton [4], those should be 
brought to the attention of the nova-specs core team [5] in IRC or via 
the nova meeting since we won't be spending review time in that repo for 
new things.
