As of today, the project neutron-vpnaas is no longer part of the neutron
governance. This was a decision reached after the project saw a dramatic
drop in active development over a prolonged period of time.
What does this mean in practice?
- From a visibility point of view, release notes and documentation will
no longer appear on openstack.org as of Ocata going forward.
- No more releases will be published by the neutron release team.
- The neutron team will stop proposing fixes for the upstream CI, if not
solely on a voluntary basis (e.g. I still felt like proposing ).
How does it affect you, the user or the deployer?
- You can continue to use vpnaas and its CLI via the
python-neutronclient and expect it to work with neutron up until the newton
release/python-neutronclient 6.0.0. After this point, if you want a release
that works for Ocata or newer, you need to proactively request a release
, and reach out to a member of the neutron release team  for
approval. Assuming that the vpnaas CI is green, you can expect to have a
working vpnaas system upon release of its package in the foreseeable future.
- Outstanding bugs and new bug reports will be rejected on the basis of
lack of engineering resources interested in helping out in the typical
OpenStack review workflow.
- Since we are freezing the development of the neutron CLI in favor of
the openstack unified client (OSC), the lack of a plan to make the VPN
commands available in the OSC CLI means that at some point in the future
the neutron client CLI support for vpnaas may be dropped (though I don't
expect this to happen any time soon).
Can this be reversed?
- If you are interested in reversing this decision, now it is time to
step up. That said, we won't be reversing the decision for Ocata. There is
quite a curve to ramp up to make neutron-vpnaas worthy of being classified
as a neutron stadium project, and that means addressing all the gaps
identified in . If you are interested, please reach out, and I will work
with you to add your account to , so that you can drive the
neutron-vpnaas agenda going forward.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to ask questions and/or clarifications.
