Hello everyone,

BranchMergeProposalFreeze is now in effect. Note that this only affects
branches that introduce new features or changes in expected behavior
("feature branches"), not branches fixing bugs ("bugfix branches").

You can still propose feature branches for merging, until FeatureFreeze
(end of day, March 24), but:

 * You have to follow the exception procedure described at
http://wiki.openstack.org/BranchMergeProposalFreeze (basically, add a
comment on the merge proposal justifying the exception)

 * Branches proposed before BMPFreeze get review priority, so there is
no guarantee that your branch will get reviewed and considered for
merging in time for FeatureFreeze

Given the size of their respective review queues, an exception is much
more likely to be accepted in Glance and Swift than in Nova.
