[nova] Reminders for Stein feature freeze

Today is feature freeze for Stein. osc-placement 1.5.0 has been released 
[1] and python-novaclient 13.0.0 should be released soon [2].

At this point I don't expect any last minute blueprints to be pushed 
through so any remaining blueprints will get deferred to Train and 
people can start re-proposing specs [3].

Having said that, Dan, Jay and I are working on trying to get at least 
the data model and migration change for counting quota usage from 
placement merged yet in Stein, which starts here [4]. The actual API 
code to use that will be deferred to Train but it would be good to get 
the data migration started in Stein to have fewer records to migrate in 
Train when the API starts relying on this data.

There is no s-3 tag to be made for nova per the relatively recent change 
in how cycle-with-rc projects are released [5].

Remember that the Forum submission deadline is fast approaching (I am 
told it is March 10 now). Forum proposals for nova are here [6]. If you 
are thinking about submitting a forum session you should do it within 
the next 24 hours. You don't necessarily need to be in attendance either 
if someone else can chair your session to get feedback.

RC1 for Stein is coming up in two weeks (March 21). The etherpad 
tracking TODOs for that is here [7]. In the next two weeks we need to be 
working on testing, daily bug triage [8], documentation (remember specs 
are generally a poor substitute for good in-tree feature documentation), 
and thinking about any nova-status upgrade checks we should add for Stein.
