The Xena feature freeze for cinder is now in effect.  Please do not 
approve patches proposing features for master until after the 
stable/xena branch has been cut the week of 13 September.

The following blueprints are granted feature freeze exceptions:
- https://blueprints.launchpad.net/cinder/+spec/s-rbac-ready-x
- https://blueprints.launchpad.net/cinder/+spec/remove-sqlalchemy-migrate

Any other feature patches (including driver features) that have not yet 
merged and are associated with an approved xena blueprint may apply for 
a Feature Freeze Exception by replying to this email before Tuesday, 7 
September at 20:00 UTC.  Note that application for an FFE is not a 
guarantee that an FFE will be granted.  Grant of an FFE is not a 
guarantee that the code will be merged for Xena.

It is expected that patches granted an FFE will be merged by 21:00 UTC 
on Monday 13 September.

Bugfixes do not require an FFE.  To be included in Xena, they must be 
merged before the first Release Candidate is cut on Thursday 16 
September.  After that point, only release-critical bugfixes will be 
allowed into the Xena release.

Ping me in IRC if you have any questions.
