Hey everyone,

I'd like to continue to serve as the Keystone PTL for the Newton release. I
found serving as PTL for the Mitaka release to be an extremely rewarding
experience where I learned a lot about myself and the project. I’d like to
continue what I’ve learned and serve as PTL again. I am also fortunate
enough to work for an employer where I can dedicate 100% of my time to
upstream contributions. With all that said, I believe I'm even more
prepared to go at it again!

We met a lot of goals from my original mission statement [0] and snuck in a
few other features that were not listed, you can read the Mitaka recap here
[1]. We completed 16 blueprints; ended Mitaka with a very low bug count
(down from over 300 to 107); and nominated two new core members. I'm very
proud of the work the entire team did during the Mitaka development cycle.
I know it's been said many times before but this is a really special team
and I'm lucky to be a part of it.

For the Newton development cycle I'd like to continue down the path of
making Keystone more enterprise ready by advocating for solid, well-defined
and realistic use cases for features that actually help end users. This
includes support for Multi-Factor Authentication.

Within Keystone I think it's critical that we finally deliver on our
promise of a functional tests for our advanced features such as federated
identify, notifications and multiple backends (LDAP and SQL).

Lastly, we have clear cross-project deficiencies that need to be addressed.
Creating a new standardized Service Catalog to improve interoperability,
and changing our Policy and Authorization for a better user experience are
critical.  These are huge cross-project efforts that will need a lot of
time and dedicated resources.

I think we're getting closer to all of these goals with each passing
release and would like to continue to take us there. Our core team is
fantastic and experienced, I like to think I bring organization, structure
and direction to the team. I’d like to continue to play to my strengths and
accomplish the goals I have stated above.
