Welcome to our regular release countdown email!

Development Focus

Teams should be wrapping up Pike-2 work.


Next week is the Pike-2 deadline for cycle-with-milestones projects.
That means that before EOD on Thursday, all milestone-driven projects
should propose a SHA for Pike-2 as a change to the openstack/releases
repository. As a reminder, Pike-2 versions should look like "P.0.0.0b2"
where P = Ocata version + 1. So if your Ocata release was "5.0.0",
Pike-2 should be "".

Pike-2 also marks the deadline for introducing new release deliverables
to be a part of the Pike release cycle. If you have new deliverables
that haven't been released yet in the Pike cycle, you should request a
release before Thursday EOD.

Finally, libraries (following the cycle-with-intermediary model) should
have at least one Pike release before the Pike-2 deadline. This is
necessary so that the release team has something to fall back to (and
branch from) around Pike-3 if the project fails to deliver a new library
release by then.

At this time, that means the following libraries should release in the
coming week:

glance-store, instack, networking-hyperv, pycadf, python-barbicanclient,
python-ceilometerclient, python-cloudkittyclient, python-congressclient,
python-designateclient, python-karborclient, python-keystoneclient,
python-magnumclient, python-muranoclient, python-searchlightclient,
python-swiftclient, python-tackerclient, python-vitrageclient, and

Upcoming Deadlines & Dates
