[openstack-dev] [Quantum][LBaaS] LBaaS development plan for Havana

I agree. This should be considered as a separate project by itself.

We seem to be focusing on Load Balancing as a Service offering, but I think there is a larger role for ADCs in general in both the public and private clouds.  Is that also within the preview of this project?  I am also curious to see how this would all feed into the ceilometer project for tracking usage.

Thanks & Regards

So ... speaking of LBaaS future plans ... it seems really odd to have
this in the project formerly known as Quantum, err, OpenStack
Networking.  It honestly seems like something I would have expected to
be in its own project.  Feel free to send me off to read previous
discussions on this if needed.

Does anyone else have concerns about this?

Certainly there's a push in nova to become as simple as possible -- moving nova-network, nova-volumes and nova-baremetal into separate projects are all examples. I'd like to see a test something along the lines of "is this absolutely needed by a majority of deployments?". If it isn't perhaps it should be its own project?

Now, perhaps that's true of LBaaS, but I'd like to be educated here if possible.
