I realize Trove is in a tough spot so I'm not trying to criticize and I 
understand the frustration of waiting to get something merged that you 
or your customers need. I don't have great answers for these problems. I 
was simply trying to highlight the fact that while that patch may be 
appropriate to merge on master it may not be appropriate to merge on 
stable, so there are different rules if you're following the stable 
policy and that's why cores on master aren't necessarily cores on stable 
branches.

At the same time I'm coming from a place where we try to enforce some 
kind of standards across projects under openstack TC governance, and 
trove is in a tough spot there.

But as Mohammed pointed out, if Trove elects to *not* follow the stable 
policy then we simply have to remove the "stable:follows-policy" tag 
from governance and trove is free to backport as it pleases (I think? 
Tony can correct me).
