The idea is to make it *both* clean and under neutron team control. The latter has huge benefits for the team, allowing a quick turnaround on patches. We landed qos and sr-iov support in no time, and I believe the same should apply for all goods we want to ship. Ideally, devstack would only contain a single neutron related line that enables our plugin.

No more dependency on devstack core team, no more devstack folks burdened by random networking stuff they don’t really care that much. Ain’t it a win-win?

I agree we should not step on each other’s feet and I am ok to help with cleanup as Sean sees it (note: tell me more though about what is envisioned for the cleanup), or step out of it while Sean takes care of his stuff.
