[openstack-dev] [nova] Blueprint review focus toward feature freeze (July 27)

As discussed in the nova meeting today [1] I have started an etherpad of 
blueprint changes up for review [2] broken down into categories to help 
focus reviews.

I did something similar in the Newton release and use this to help 
myself organize my TODO list, sort of like a Kanban board. As things 
make progress they move to the top.

I've already filled out some of the changes which are very close to 
completing the blueprint and we could get done this week.

Then I've started noting changes against priority efforts with notes.

I will then start filling in categories for other blueprints that need 
attention and try to prioritize those based on what I think can actually 
get completed in Pike. For example, if there are two changes which 
haven't gotten much review attention but I feel like one has a better 
chance of getting completed before the feature freeze, I will prioritize 
that one higher. Some people might think this is unfair, but the way I 
see it is, if we're going to focus on something, I'd rather it be the 
thing that can be done, rather than divide our attention and fail to get 
either done.

Please let me know if there are questions.
