Here is the status update / focus setting mail about notification work
for week 12.

[Medium] https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1657428 The instance
notifications are sent with inconsistent timestamp format. Fix is ready

https://review.openstack.org/#/c/448225/ Pre-add functional tests stub

instance.volume_attach notification
* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/408676/ Transform 
instance.volume_detach notification

transformed before they can switch to the nova's versioned 
notifications. So we treat those transformation patches with priority.
