Agenda for Next Neutron Team Meeting
Announcements / Reminders
- Juno-3 is approaching fast
- Neutron Policies are documented here:
- Ryu plugin is being deprecated
- Ryu team wants to concentrate its resource to ofagent.
- Juno will be the last release to support Ryu plugin.
- Currently no upgrade path is provided.
These are new failures seen in gate:
-  Lock wait timeout adding ipavailabilityranges
-  Lock wait timeout adding ipallocationpools
-  Lock wait timeout adding vip to vips table
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
Team Discussion Topics
- Can we rotate between different time slots for the weekly irc meeting?
- The current time is too NA-centric
- GBP: How can following all the neutron rules lead us to it's current state?
- How did we get here?
- Where did the process fail?
- How can we not get here again?
- Contrail Plugin review
- Sub-team culling
- We have too many sub teams.
- We need to determine a better life cycle management for sub-teams.
Nova Parity (markmcclain)
- Gap 0: DB Migrations (complete):
Thanks to salv-orlando, HenryG, jlibsova, Ann and others for working on this.
- Gap 1: Tempest Testing
- (mlavelle tracking this item)
- Gap 2: Grenade Testing
- Work resumed now that Gap 0 has closed.
- Gap 3: Neutron as the default in devstack
- On hold pending Gaps 0 and 2
- Gap 4: Missing API calls
- Audit complete. Based on bug discussion no missed calls to add.
- Gap 5: Neutron replacement for Nova multi-host
- (carl_baldwin tracking as part of DVR work)
- Gap 6: nova-net to neutron migration
- Gap 7: Document Open Source Options
- Planned for late Juno-2/3 no updates here.
- Note: (emagana) The docs team has decided to not document all available options for plugins/drivers even if they are open-sourced.
- The only options documented will be the default ones (i.e. ML2 with OVS).

Team meeting on Thursdays at 1500 UTC
- Will be following up on the following bugs newly tagged with l3-ipam-dhcp
- neutron-ovs-dvr (meeting page)
- Please see how to page. Need people willing to grab code and test.
- Original patches are merged.
- Juno-3 timeframe will be used for backlog work and hardening.
- Working on getting experimental DVR test to pass all tempest tests. I believe we're getting close.
- Would like to know today if the -2 can be removed from the spec and code to attempt to make progress. I still feel this is important for performance and has good return on investment potential.
- Blueprint missed deadline. I have concerns about getting this implemented in time for Juno anyway. Will push out to Kilo.
- Deferred until early Kilo.
Advanced Services (SumitNaiksatam)
