Hi all,

It's a couple of weeks out from the slated "decision" milestone 
(icehouse-2) to potentially deprecate nova-network. Since I guess 
there's still time to affect this outcome, but I haven't seen much 
communication recently, here's a thread!

I think a series of beautiful write-ups could help inform this decision, 
perhaps some/all of these (taken from survey results, and previous 
mailing list discussion):

* How to use neutron to achieve FlatDHCP Multi-Host HA (eg 

* How to migrate from an existing nova-network installation to Neutron

* A performance comparison of nova-network and neutron of some kind

* Addressing the progress on the pain points discussed at the summit: 
usability, complexity and reliability 

* How neutron has improved in terms of providing "simple solutions for 
simple use cases"

=> Does anyone have any time to inform about these points, or any other 
salient ones?
