Development Focus

We are entering the last weeks of the Yogadevelopment cycle. From
now until the final release, we'll send a countdown email like this
every week.

It's probably a good time for teams to take stock of their library and
client work that needs to be completed yet. The non-client library freeze
is coming up, followed closely by the client lib freeze. Please plan
accordingly to avoid any last minute rushes to get key functionality in.

General Information

Next week is the Extra-ATC freeze, in preparation for elections. All
contributions to OpenStack are valuable, but some are not expressed as
Gerrit code changes. Please list active contributors to your project team
who do not have a code contribution this cycle, and therefore won't
automatically be considered an Active Technical Contributor and allowed
to vote. This is done by adding extra-atcs to
before the Extra-ATC freeze on February 10th, 2022.

A quick reminder of the upcoming freeze dates. Those vary depending on
deliverable type:

* General libraries (except client libraries) need to have their last
feature release before Non-client library freeze (February 17th, 2022).
Their stable branches are cut early.

* Client libraries (think python-*client libraries) need to have their
last feature release before Client library freeze (February 24th, 2022)

* Deliverables following a cycle-with-rc model (that would be most
services) observe a Feature freeze on that same date, February 24th, 2022.
Any feature addition beyond that date should be discussed on the
mailing-list and get PTL approval. After feature freeze, cycle-with-rc
deliverables need to produce a first release candidate (and a stable
branch) before RC1 deadline (March 7th, 2022)

* Deliverables following cycle-with-intermediary model can release as
necessary, but in all cases before Final RC deadline (March 24th, 2022)

Finally, now is also a good time to start planning what highlights you
want for your deliverables in the cycle highlights. The deadline to
submit an initial version for those is set to Feature freeze (February 
24th, 2022).
