Before beginning, I'd like to thank all members of the Keystone community.
The Mitaka release would not be possible without the many dedicated
contributors to the Keystone project. This was a great development cycle
and I’m very happy with the finished product. Here’s the Keystone Mitaka
release at a glance.

In total, we completed 16 blueprints/specs in the Mitaka release. We bumped
2 to the Newton release. Some of the more interesting features are:
  - Time-based one-time password (TOTP)
  - Implied roles
  - Domain specific roles
  - Shadow users
  - Bootstrap via keystone-manage
For a comprehensive list of complete features and additional information
please refer to our specs page.

We added 2 new core members to the team, Dave Chen and Samuel de Medeiros
Queiroz. I’d like to once again thank them for their support during the
development cycle.

We started to perform weekly bug squashes and triages. We _actually_ did
them, consistently too. I’m very happy to say that Keystone’s bug count is
the lowest it has been in a long time, with 107 open bugs to date. A far
cry from the 300 when Mitaka started. This is a small victory that we can
be proud of that gives us a sense of completion.

A large factor that made the above possible is the removal or deprecation
of certain features. This includes, but is not limited to:
  - LDAP write support for users and groups -- deprecated
  - PKI tokens -- deprecated
  - Using LDAP as a store for projects and roles -- removed

We made great strides in the adoption of keystoneauth. Both novaclient and
neutronclient are now using our new keystoneauth library, with many other
projects working on patches to do the same.
