Thanks for sending this out Matt. I added a inline comment here.

> we can approve specs for new things again.
> The full Newton release schedule for Nova is in this wiki [3].
> These are the major dates from here on out:
> * June 2: newton-1, non-priority spec approval freeze
> * June 30: non-priority feature freeze
> * July 15: newton-2
> * July 19-21: Nova Midcycle
> * Aug 4: priority spec approval freeze
> * Sept 2: newton-3, final python-novaclient release, FeatureFreeze, Soft
> StringFreeze
> * Sept 16: RC1 and Hard StringFreeze
> * Oct 7, 2016: Newton Release
> The important thing for most people right now is we have exactly four
> weeks until the non-priority spec approval freeze. We then have about one
> month after that to land all non-priority blueprints.
> Keep in mind that we've already got 52 approved blueprints and most of
> those were re-approved from Mitaka, so have been approved for several weeks

> The non-priority blueprint cycle is intentionally restricted in Newton
> because of all of the backlog work we've had spilling over into this
> release. We really need to focus on getting as much of that done as
> possible before taking on more new work.
> For the rest of the priorities session we talked about what our actual
> review priorities are for Newton. The list with details and owners is
> already available here [4].
> In no particular order, these are the review priorities:
> * Cells v2
> * Scheduler
> * API Improvements
> * os-vif integration
> * libvirt storage pools (for live migration)
> * Get Me a Network
> * Glance v2 Integration

I saw the priorities review ( https://review.openstack.org/#/c/312217/ )
has been merged so wanted to point that out here. I know Nova team cares
about history section of the specs so the dates are more clear from the
links posted on the comment. To be more explicit: Glance v2 work (BP+code)
was initially proposed in Icehouse, the co-located mid-cycle was in Kilo
where we had a brief session on Glance v2 work (& thanks to all the Nova
members who have been giving their input). Also, the reason for my
comments/questions in the etherpad.

> We *should* be able to knock out glance v2, get-me-a-network and os-vif
> relatively soon (I'm thinking sometime in June).
> Not listed in [4] but something we talked about was volume multi-attach
> with Cinder. We said this was going to be a 'stretch goal' contingent on
> making decent progress on that item by non-priority feature freeze *and* we
> get the above three smaller priority items completed.
> Another thing we talked about but isn't going to be a priority is
> NFV-related work. We talked about cleaning up technical debt and additional
> testing for NFV but had no one in the session signed up to own that work or
> with concrete proposals on how to make improvements in that area. Since we
> can't assign review priorities to something that nebulous it was left out.
> Having said that, Moshe Levi has volunteered to restart and lead the
> SR-IOV/PCI bi-weekly meeting [5] (thanks again, Moshe!). So if you (or your
> employer, or your vendor) are interested in working on NFV in Nova please
> attend that meeting and get involved in helping out that subteam.
