Thanks for reaching out.

The networking-sfc initiative so far has been pretty autonomous. The
project has its own launchpad project [1] and its own docs to document APIs
and proposals [2]. During the long journey that Neutron has been through,
we have been adjusting how to manage the project in order to strike a good
balance between development agility, product stability and community needs.
We're always looking forward to improving that balance and this means that
how we track certain initiatives may evolve in the future. For now, it's
probably best to target the mailing list with tag [networking-sfc] (in
addition to neutron), as well as the project noted below.
