What? A release countdown at R+1 week? Did someone have too many
celebratory drinks after Pike release? Well, we are not all done yet. We
have release-trailing deliverables to take care of.

General Information

As you probably know, Pike was successfully released[1] on the target
date this Wednesday. Projects and libraries following the
cycle-with-intermediary model can now propose early Queens releases.

However, some deployment-oriented deliverables (from Puppet-OpenStack,
Kolla, TripleO...) have opted for a *cycle-trailing* release model, in
order to finalize their Pike deliverables *after* the main components
are released. Those deliverables should already have published their
first release candidates. They can push additional RCs (or last-minute
intermediary releases) during the R+1 and R+2 weeks, but need to post
their Pike final release before the cycle-trailing release deadline
(September 14).


Upcoming Deadlines & Dates

Release deadline for cycle-trailing deliverables: September 14
Queens PTG in Denver: Sept 11-15

As usual come find us on #openstack-release IRC channel if you have any
questions or concerns.

This is the last of the release countdown emails you'll receive from me
for Pike. You should soon receive Queens-related communications from our
new fearless leader, Sean McGinnis. Thanks again everyone for a great
development cycle and a smooth release. Take a step back, look at what
you achieved, and be proud.
