OpenStack Grizzly Rounding Third

The big OpenStack 2013.1 (aka Grizzly) open source cloud platform release is due out this week on 4/4.

I’m always curious about project stability and for me one possible leading indicator is the number of release candidates (RCs) that come out prior to a formal release. I’m not saying that more RCs mean more bugs, (I’ve seen plenty of projects issue a single RC and then issue piles of bugfixes post GA), but it is ‘interesting’ to see how the hot dog is made.
