Glance was released today,  The tag was created at this commit:
which is dated Thu, 18 Jan 2018 12:09:11 +0000

As you'll notice, that was about 2 weeks ago.  Which prompts the
question, why did we wait so long to release it.

Q: Why that commit?
A: It's the last commit when the glance functional gates jobs were
still working.

Q: Why didn't we release it 2 weeks ago?
A: The Q-3 release marks the feature freeze.  Any code committed after
that point should be either a release-critical bug or something with a
Feature Freeze Exception.  So you really don't want to release Q-3

Q: What's the deal with the glance functional gate jobs?
A: There are two patches fixing them, but they have to go through the
'integrated' queue before they can merge, and we've had some bad luck
over the past few days ... they've made it to the top of the queue to
be processed when something bad happened and they had to start over.
They're being processed again right now (keep your fingers crossed).

Q: What about my commits that show up after
A: I will be sending out FFEs or marking the bugs for RC1, as appropriate.

Glance cores, please do not merge any patches until after
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/536630/ has merged.
