Agenda for Next Neutron Team Meeting
Tuesday (3/2/2015) at 2100 UTC on #openstack-meeting
Announcements / Reminders
- Kilo dates to be aware of:
- Kilo-3 LP page:
- Neutron Policies are documented here:
-  Ensure a smooth upgrade path after adv svc split
-  Failure to allocate tunnel id when creating networks concurrently
-  br-tun lost ports/flows if openvswitch restart
-  Security group rules errorneously applied to all ports having same ip addresses in different networks
-  ping still working after security group rule is created, updated, or deleted (related to previous one)
These bugs are in nova but are related to neutron. It would be great if we could get neutron reviews on:
- Merged  Remove unneeded call to fetch network info on shutdown - arosen
- Merged  remove unneeded call to network_api on detach_interface - arosen
- Merged  remove unneeded call to network_api on rebuild_instance - arosen
- Merged  Optimize validate_networks to query neutron only when needed - arosen
-  deallocate_for_instance should delete all neutron ports on error - arosen
-  Fix port_security_enabled neutron extension - arosen
-  Fix pre-created ports in neutron from being deleted by nova - arosen
Open Items for Kilo: (feedback needed)

- OVS and LinuxBridge agent configuration files
- Prior to ML2, OVS and LinuxBridge were plugins with their own configuration files, ovs_neutron_plugin.ini and linuxbridge_conf.ini, respectively. After ML2, these plugins became agents/mechanisms and the installation guide now configures them in the ml2_conf.ini file using [ovs], [agent], etc. . However, some downstream packagers still use ovs_neutron_plugin.ini and linuxbridge_conf.ini, the former of which generates the most confusion because it contains the word "plugin" and doesn't relate to a plugin anymore. These differing opinions periodically generate documentation bugs  that lack clear resolution. Can we officially resolve this issue? If separate files make sense, I suggest renaming them to reduce confusion regarding where they fit into the big picture... such as ml2_conf_ovs.ini, ovs_agent_conf.ini, etc.
