Spec not approved yet, un-targeting blueprint from juno-1 --johnthetubaguy (28th May 2014)

You should not set a milestone target unless the blueprint has been properly prioritized by the project drivers.

Sorry, this does not have enough positive reviews to make it for juno-3, please resubmit for kilo. For more information, please contact me (johnthetubaguy) via IRC or email. --johnthetubaguy 2nd September 2014

Approved for kilo, now spec has merged. --johnthatubaguy 17th October 2014

It seems like this is still a WIP, so moving back to started, and moving to kilo-2. --johnthetubaguy 17th December 2014

Spec merged, so blueprint is now approved. --johnthetubaguy 6th July 2015

This got an (informal) exception, but that has now expired.
Sorry, we have now hit the non-priority feature freeze for Liberty. You will need to resubmit this blueprint for Mitaka or apply for an exception. For more details on why this is happening, and the rest of the process details, please see: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Nova/Liberty_Release_Schedule
--johnthetubaugy 4th August 2015

Sorry, we have now hit the Non-Priority Feature Freeze for Mitaka. For more details please see: http://docs.openstack.org/releases/schedules/mitaka.html#m-nova-npff and http://docs.openstack.org/developer/nova/process.html#non-priority-feature-freeze
