The OpenStack project structure has been under heavy discussion over the past months. There was a long email thread, a lot of opinionated blogposts, a cross-project design summit session in Paris, and various strawmen proposed to our governance repository. Based on all that input, the OpenStack Technical Committee worked on a clear specification of the problems we are trying to solve, and the proposed way to fix them. Thierry Carrez wrote an excerpt of the approved resolution. To enjoy with a cup of your favorite brew and away from distractions.
The work of 28 contributors (including 8 first-time contributors), this release is definitely operator-centric. Upgrade is recommended; as always you can upgrade to this release with no customer downtime.
