Development Focus

We are getting close to the end of the Yogacycle! Next week on
February 24th, 2022is the Yoga-3 milestone, also known as feature freeze.
It's time to wrap up feature work in the services and their client
libraries, and defer features that won't make it to the Zedcycle.

General Information

This coming week is the deadline for client libraries: their last feature
release needs to happen before "Client library freeze" on February 24th, 
Only bugfix releases will be allowed beyond this point.

When requesting those library releases, you can also include the
stable/yogabranching request with the review. As an example, see the
"branches" section here:

February 24th, 2022is also the deadline for feature work in all OpenStack
deliverables following the cycle-with-rc model. To help those projects
produce a first release candidate in time, only bugfixes should be allowed
in the master branch beyond this point. Any feature work past that deadline
has to be raised as a Feature Freeze Exception (FFE) and approved by the
team PTL.

Finally, feature freeze is also the deadline for submitting a first version
of your cycle-highlights. Cycle highlights are the raw data that helps shape
what is communicated in press releases and other release activity at the
end of the cycle, avoiding direct contacts from marketing folks. See
for more details.
