Hi team!

As discussed on the IRC meeting, I would like to propose a soft feature freeze 
for ironic, starting with Aug 1st. I hope this proposal will help us better 
concentrate on the priorities and finally be able to finish most of the things 
we've committed to.

Between this day and the final release, we will only merge features and 
enhancements that are either:

1. Team priorities, listed on 
and https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/IronicWhiteBoard. These will be *reviewed* 
during the coming IRC meetings to prune of things that are clearly not making it.

2. Or relatively small vendor features. They have to:
  2.1. be mostly contained in the driver code (no new API or driver interfaces),
  2.2. have an RFE and/or spec approved by the freeze date,
  2.3. be fully submitted for review by the freeze date.

Of course, any bug fixes, CI improvements and documentation patches can merge at 
any point; they are not affected by the freeze.

Please let me know, what do you think. If no objections are raised, we can 
accept the proposal formally on one of the coming meetings.
