Welcome to one of the last countdown emails for Queens!

Development Focus

Teams should be working on release critical bugs in preparation of the final

Teams attending the PTG should also be preparing for those discussions and
capturing information in the etherpads:


General Information

Thursday, February 22 is the deadline for final Queens release candidates. We
will then enter a quiet period until we tag the final release on February 28.


Watch for any translation patches coming through and merge them quickly. If
your project has a stable/queens branch created, please make sure those
patches are also merged there.

Liaisons for projects with independent deliverables should import the release
history by preparing patches to openstack/releases.

Projects following the cycle-trailing model should be getting ready for the
cycle-trailing RC deadline coming up on March 1.

Please drop by #openstack-release with any questions or concerns about the
upcoming release.
