The current date for feature freeze is May 30.
Based on today's weekly sync, it seems that most teams require
additional 2 weeks to conclude current work.
Therefore I suggest to set an updated FF milestone for June 15.
If you need more time or think we should not change the current
date please respond.
I think we should prioritize schedule over capacity.
Features which do not make it to FF can wait for the next release.
I think that we should be more careful in the planning phase because it
seems to be a recurring phenomena where people commit for features they
know won't make it to FF - still these features get approved for the
I suggest to adopt a spec review phase, which would become part of the
planning phase, Here is the process (which is similar to some of the
openstack projects' process):
1. For each feature the owner would have to submit a spec file which
includes a description and details of the feature (like what feature
pages should include today - and mostly do not!).
An example would be -
2. The specs are getting reviews and hopefully approved after they meet
some standards and make sense to add to oVirt.
3. Once a spec is approved it can be a candidate to include in the
release ( at this point the owner should have a good estimation on how
long it is going to take him to implement the proposed spec)
4. The release manager of the version should approve the spec for the
version according to the well known deadlines.
