Hi all!

Half of the Queens cycle is behind us. I'd like to remind about a few deadlines 
and how they affect us:

1. Jan 18th is the non-client library release deadline. It affects ironic-lib 
and sushy. The latter has a few outstanding changes - please try to find some 
time to get them a bit of attention. We have one months left, minus holidays.

2. Jan 25th is the client release deadline. If you work on new API, it has to 
land before that point with its client change to end up in ironicclient Queens.

3. Jan 25th is also the feature freeze. We haven't had a formal feature freeze 
for a few cycles. But after troubles with releasing Pike we decided to get back 
to it.

Feature freeze exceptions *may* be given to priority work, low-impact vendor 
changes and low-impact work substantially improving operator's and/or user's 
experience. Feature freeze exceptions are unlikely to be granted to major API 
additions or breaking changes.

If you think your work may be affected by the feature freeze, please start 
planning accordingly.

Thank you and happy winter holidays,
