We have been busy working on the Pulp 3.0 Core Beta, the next step in our
roadmap to a Pulp 3 GA.

One of the Pulp 3 key objectives was to provide a true plugin API. Since
the September 2017 Pulp 3 Plugin API Alpha release, we have appreciated the
active reception and valuable feedback. The feedback we have received from
the community has been key in validating and informing some design
decisions shaping the Pulp core functionality.

We are working toward completing this core functionality and are excited to
announce our plans for the Pulp 3.0 Core Beta deliverable.  This email
describes the value proposition for Pulp 3.0 Core Beta, the feature set of
the deliverable, and when it will be delivered. We invite to you review
this milestone and provide feedback.

Value - What will this do for me?

Pulp 3.0 Core Beta will provide all major functionality required by most
users and a Plugin API to allow power users and plugin writers to start
planning the impact of moving to Pulp 3.0 from Pulp 2.0 including writing

What is it?

We have loosely discussed and described most of the functionality in the

Pulp 3.0 Core Beta will also commit to delivery of a few more items of
interest to our community that are described below.
