Hello Kubernetes community!

The v1.29 release cycle has begun and we are now actively collecting enhancements.

Actions Required:

  • SIG Leads:

    • Discuss within your SIG which enhancements you will be proposing for this release

    • Opt in for enhancements by applying the current milestone(v1.29) and "lead-opted-in" label on the tracking issues in kubernetes/enhancements[1] 

  • Enhancements owners:

  • Reviewers/Approvers:

    • Please add the “kind/deprecation” label to PRs as appropriate (this is a big help for the Comms team!)

Enhancements will be tracked throughout the release using the 1.29 Enhancements Tracking GitHub Project board[8]. More information on the enhancements process can be found on the kubernetes/enhancements[1] repository.

All enhancements should plan to opt-in well before the Production Readiness Review Freeze (Thursday 28th September 2023) to ensure adequate time for reviews. Enhancements opted-in after this deadline will be at risk for inclusion in the release.
