OpenStack Heat Specifications
This git repository is used to hold approved design specifications for additions to the heat project. Reviews of the specs are done in gerrit, using a similar workflow to how we review and merge changes to the code itself.
The layout of this repository is:
Specifications are proposed for a given release by adding them to the specs/<release> directory and posting it for review. The implementation status of a blueprint for a given release can be found by looking at the blueprint in launchpad. Not all approved blueprints will get fully implemented.
You can find an example spec in specs/template.rst.
There is a sub-directory specs/<release>/backlog to store all specs that had been approved but are not implemented in a specific release.
Movement of specs to the backlog would be done in a batch at the end of a release cycle.
Prior to the Juno development cycle, this repository was not used for spec reviews. Reviews prior to Juno were completed entirely through Launchpad blueprints:
Please note, Launchpad blueprints are still used for tracking the current status of blueprints. For more information, see:
