New Feature Planning

New features are discussed via IRC or mailing list (with [kolla] prefix). Kayobe project keeps RFEs in Storyboard. Specs are welcome but not strictly required.

Task Tracking

Kolla project tracks tasks in Storyboard. Note this is the same place as for bugs.

A more lightweight task tracking is done via etherpad - Whiteboard.

Reporting a Bug

You found an issue and want to make sure we are aware of it? You can do so on Storyboard. Note this is the same place as for tasks.

Most changes proposed to Kayobe require two +2 votes from core reviewers before +W. A release note is required on most changes as well. Release notes policy is described in its own section.

Significant changes should have documentation and testing provided with them.
