Nova is still working through a non-trivial backlog of backports, the 
main slowness being some of the stuff yet to land in queens still has to 
make it through stein and rocky first. I've been bugging stable cores in 
nova the last week or so but it's slow going. So just FYI that I'm not 
sure nova will be ready for the queens-em tag this week but I'm trying 
to get us close.
