[Nova] Bexar targets


Hello everyone,

We are now one month away from Bexar BranchMergeProposalFreeze[1].

[1] http://wiki.openstack.org/BranchMergeProposalFreeze

With 36 blueprints, the list we currently have targeted for Nova
bexar[2] does not accurately represent what we think we can announce and
track as feature targets for the bexar release. Rick and I need to clean
it up and make sure it contains reasonable objectives that we are
confident we can deliver in that release.

[2] https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/bexar

The best way to do this is to start from a clean slate, discuss in the
next week(s) with the blueprint assignees what can be coded in the next
month, and add back to the list only those specs that we have reasonable
confidence with.

I will therefore in the next hours "decline for bexar" all the specs
that are in the Nova/Bexar list, to come up with an empty list. Then
we'll gradually add the confirmed blueprints back in the list, so that
from now on, the list only contains confirmed targets. This does *not*
mean your feature has been refused for Bexar.

Please note that the fact a specific blueprint is (or is not) in the
nova/bexar list does not affect in any way your ability to code and
merge another feature into Bexar. The list just represent what we
communicate to our stakeholders and what, as a result, we follow on more
closely during our team meetings. In order to avoid me pinging you about
progress, you might actually prefer not to be in the list :)

Feel free to ask me any question about this.
