Development Focus

We are now past the Yoga-2 milestone, and entering the last development
phase of the cycle. Teams should be focused on implementing planned work
for the cycle.

Now is a good time to review those plans and reprioritize anything if
needed based on the what progress has been made and what looks realistic
to complete in the next few weeks.

General Information

Looking ahead to the end of the release cycle, please be aware of the
feature 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, 
   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 10th, 2022)

* Deliverables following cycle-with-intermediary model can release as
   necessary, but in all cases beforeMarch 25th, 2022 (Final RC deadline)
