[openstack-dev] [nova] Next steps for proxy API deprecation

Now that the 2.36 microversion change has merged , we can work on the
python-novaclient changes for this microversion.
At the midcycle we agreed  to also return a 404 for network APIs,
including nova-network (which isn't a proxy), for consistency and
further signaling that nova-network is going away.
In the client, we agreed to soften the impact for network CLIs by
determining if the latest microversion supported will fail (so will we
send >=2.36) and rather than fail, send 2.35 instead (if the user didn't
specifically specify a different version). However, we'd emit a warning
saying this is deprecated and will go away in the first major client
release (in Ocata? after nova-network is removed? after Ocata is released?).
We should probably just deprecate any CLIs/APIs in python-novaclient
today that are part of this server side API change, including network
CLIs/APIs in novaclient. The baremetal and image proxies in the client
are already deprecated, and the volume proxies were already removed.
That leaves the network proxies in the client.
From my notes, Dan Smith was going to work on the novaclient changes
for 2.36 to not fail and use 2.35 - unless anyone else wants to
volunteer to do that work (please speak up).
We can probably do the network CLI/API deprecations in the client in
parallel to the 2.36 support, but need someone to step up for that. I'll
try to get it started this week if no one else does.
