[openstack-dev] OpenStack moving both too fast and too slow at the same time

This email is meant to be the ML discussion of a question I brought up
during the TC meeting on April 25th.; [1]

The TL;DR version is:

Reading the user survey [2], I see the same issues time and time again.
Pages 18-19 of the survey are especially common points.
Things move too fast, no LTS release, upgrades are terrifying for
anything that isn't N-1 -> N.
These come up time and time again
How is the TC working with the dev teams to address these critical issues?

I asked this because on page 18 is this comment:

"Most large customers move slowly and thus are running older versions,
which are EOL upstream sometimes before they even deploy them."

This is exactly what we're seeing with some of our customers and I
wanted to ask the TC about it.
