Welcome back to our regular release countdown email. This one will serve
both for the R-23 and R-22 weeks.

Development Focus

Teams should be working on specs approval and implementation for
priority features for this cycle.


All project teams should be researching how they can meet the Pike
release goals [1]. Responses to those goals are due before the Pike-1
milestone, and are needed even if the work is already done. You can find
a refresher on the Goals process at [2].

Project teams that want to change their release model should also do so
before the Pike-1 milestone. This is done by proposing a change to the
Pike deliverable files at [3].
