While reviewing Queens release deliverables and preparing missing stable/queens
branches, we have identified several libraries that have not had any Queens

In the past, we have stated we would force a release for any missing
deliverables in order to have a clear branching point. We considered tagging
the base of the stable/pike branch again and starting a new stable/queens
branch from there, but that doesn't work for several technical reasons the most
important of which is that the queens release would not include any changes
that had been backported to stable/pike, and we have quite a few of those. So,
we are left with 2 choices: do not release these libraries at all for queens,
or release from HEAD on master. Skipping the releases entirely will make it
difficult to provide bug fixes in these libraries over the life of the queens
release so, although it is potentially disruptive, we plan to release from HEAD
on master. We will rely on the constraints update mechanism to protect the gate
if the new releases introduce bugs and teams will be able to fix those problems
on the new stable/queens branch and then release a new version.

See https://review.openstack.org/#/c/539657/ and the notes below for details of
what will be tagged.


Mostly doc and CI related changes, but the "Retrieve project id to ignore from
keystone" commit (e2bf485) looks like it may be important.


There are quite a few bug fixes and feature changes merged that have not been
released. It is currently marked with a type of "library", but we will change
this to "other" and require a release by the end of the cycle (see
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/539655/ for that change). Based on the README
description, this appears to be a command line and therefore should maybe have
a type of "client-library", but "other" would work as far as release process
goes. Since this is kind of a special command line, perhaps "other" would be
the correct type going forward, but we will need input from the Heat team on

Only reno updates, so a new release on master should not be very disruptive.

Several unreleased bug fixes and feature changes. Consumed by heat-translator
and tacker, so there is some risk in releasing it this late.


Mostly packaging and build changes, with a couple of fixes. It is used by
mistral and tripleo-common.


No changes this cycle. We will branch stable/queens from the same point as


Only doc and g-r changes. Since the risk here is low, we are going to release
from master and branch from there.


Just one bug fix. This is a dependency for heat, mistral, openstackclient,
python-openstackclient, rally, and senlin-dashboard. The one bug fix looks
fairly safe though, so we are going to release from master and branch from


Many feature changes and bug fixes. This impacts mistral and tacker.


One feature and several g-r changes.

Please respond here, comment on the patch, or hit us up in #openstack-release
if you have any questions or concerns.
