Icehouse-2 development milestone available

The second milestone of the Icehouse development cycle, “icehouse-2” is now available for Keystone, Glance, Nova, Horizon, Neutron, Cinder, Ceilometer, Heat, and Trove. Including the oslo libraries, “only” 50 blueprints were implemented and about 650 bugs were fixed during this milestone, which is slightly less than our usual velocity at that point in the cycle. This is mostly due to the recent issues in gating and the end-of-year holiday season. The next development milestone, icehouse-3, is scheduled for March 6th.
