according to oVirt Release Process [1], a week after the n-1 release is out, a release criteria for the new release should be discussed.

Release criteria will include MUST items and SHOULD items (held in wiki)
    MUST items will DELAY the release in any case.
    SHOULD items will include less critical flows and new features.
    SHOULD items will be handled as "best-effort" by component owners
Component owners (e.g. Node, engine-core, vdsm) must ACK the criteria suggested.
Release criteria discussions shouldn't take more then 2 weeks
Progress on MUST items should be review every month, during the weekly meeting

This means that starting today, we should define release criteria for November 12th.
A couple of email have been already posted about this:
