Hello stx.3.0 feature primes... 

As discussed in the Community Call yesterday, we're looking for your forecast for dev/test completion.

Per below, the list of features targeted for stx.3.0 is available at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZFR-9-riwhIwiBYBmWmi1qOVyHtgJ8Xk_FaF2jp5rY0/edit#gid=1010323020.

We've also started a board on StoryBoard to track the plans for the features by top-level story: https://storyboard.openstack.org/#!/board/186.  

Please provide an update for your feature(s) as to when you plan to complete your development & testing, and can hand off to the test team for feature testing.

Thanks, Bill...

Subject: [Starlingx-discuss] Release Plan - stx.3.0

Hello all,
The stx.3.0 milestone-2 is planned for the week of Sept 3. This is a call to the various primes (dev, test, doc) to help close the milestone criteria.

For a list of features targeted for stx.3.0 is available at:

The criteria for the milestone are as follows:
       - Spec freeze
              - Specs are in good shape.
              - Performance Framework spec is posted. R2 >> R3 spec will continue to be an exception.
       - Feature plans defined and feature development well underway
              - To date, we do not have concrete plans from the feature PLs on risk, status, and expected code merge dates
              - PLs, please update your plans on the spreadsheet above. Please also create the corresponding stories in StoryBoard and tag them with the stx.3.0 label 
       - Release test plan defined - including test automation deliverables
              - Test team is raising concerns about the scope of features for stx.3.0 and the release timeline. There are only 5wks left for feature testing and regression is supposed to start on Sept 23.
              - Given the tight timeline, we need PLs to provide a risk indicator for landing their feature content. Ideally, a rough plan would help the test team plan accordingly. If a feature is too big to land in stx.3.0, knowing this now helps the test team focus their efforts on the features that will make it. If a feature is delivering in chunks, please engage the test team so that they can test as content is delivered.
       - Documentation plan defined
              - Need confirmation from the doc team on what they have planned
