If you want to install Django 1.11 and test it, that would be very helpful, even if its just to open bugs. I’m in the process of adding a non-voting job for 1.11 right now, so we should be able to move quickly.

Great work!

Is there anything that can be done to help meet that July deadline and get 1.11.x in? I'm more than happy to help with reviews or even fixes for newer Django in Horizon, and we should try and get others involved if it will help as I think this is a little urgent.

Running anything less than Django 1.11 leaves us in a weird spot because of the point where support ends for any versions below it.

Looking at the release timelines, if we don't get 1.11 in for Pike, we'll have released a version of Horizon that will be for an unsupported version of Django in about 6 months time (8 if deployers stick with django 1.8):

It isn't as bad it could be, but it's an awkward situation to be in. 1.9 is no longer supported, 1.10 support stops at 2018, so realistically 1.8 is the only version to have Pike 'safe' until Queens thats not particularly great either. Getting 1.11 support in would be ideal.

Hi everyone,

I've put up a patch to global-requirements to raise the Django cap to "<1.11", with the upper-constraint at "1.10.7" (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/480215). Depending on the remaining time, I'd quite like to move us to "1.11.x" before Requirements Freeze, which will fall around the 27th of July.
