Well, I also would like to understand more about stable policy violations.
When I proposed such patches in the past for the release N-2 I have
always got the answer: it is not a security issue so it will not be merged.

This is a good example of how things have been working so far:


This cinder patch was merged in master. It was then merged in Mitaka.
But it was not merged in Liberty just because "only security fixes" were
allowed at that point.

You can read that in the comments:

Is this kind of things going to change after the discussion in Sydney ?
The discussion is not enough ? what we need to get done then ?

thank you
