13.04 Call for Ubuntu Server/Cloud Topics

Hi all,

This is the "official" call for discussion about Ubuntu Server/Cloud
planning for the 13.04 cycle. As a reminder, this is a non-LTS
release, thus it is a good time to get in your more daring and
innovative server features, as we typically like to use the following
LTS-1 (13.10) release to harden the key features we want to highlight in
the next LTS (14.04).  However, please keep in mind this is *not* true
for our cloud guest images, where users regularly deploy production
workloads on non-LTS Ubuntu Server releases, so we might push back on
features that impact these users.

The process will be conducted as follows:

1. A call for blueprints, i.e. *this* email.

2. Create blueprints that start with "servercloud-r-", mark Dave
Walker[1] as approver, and propose them for uds-r[2].

3. Send an email to ubuntu-server at lists.ubuntu.com to let us know you
submitted the idea, as sometimes we can lose the LP notification amongst
our other LP spam.  We will then review the blueprints, ask some
clarification questions, and then approve the ones suitable for
discussion at UDS.

4. UDS happens

5. We provide a final roadmap for 13.04 post-UDS

Note that Dave Walker will be coordinating the Cloud & Server track.
We will also automatically include 12.10 blueprints[3] marked,
"Deferred" in our review for this cycle, assuming it makes sense to
carry them over.  Below is the schedule with some details.

= Oct 2nd: Request for Topics =
This email

= Approximately three weeks post UDS - 13.04 Planning Review =
About three weeks after UDS (post FeatureDefinitionFreeze[4]), we
will deliver the UDS 13.04 plan to capture what was actually decided as
the plan of record at UDS, and present that information.
