Here are the key points from the "Neutron Pain Points" session:

FWaaS v1 to v2 - We should try to support running both v1 and v2
concurrently so operators aren't forced to immediately kill all existing v1
users just to start to switch to v2. If not, we need some sort of migration
at minimum if v1 is to be removed at some point.[1]

dsnmasq alternatives for DHCP - There was some interest in using other DHCP
servers. If you are interested, contact the people listed on the volunteer
list to work with them on putting up patches.

Security groups API docs needs improvement - security groups support more
than just ICMP, UDP, TCP but that isn't clear via the docs.[2]

Altering the preset default security group rules - this came up again, but
I don't think any different conclusions were reached other than "make your
on-boarding script do it".  This is because we can't really change them at
this point without a big backwards compatibility problem and if we make
them easily configurable we end up with a cross-cloud compatibility problem.

Let me know if I left out anything important. Also, keep an eye out for the
summary of the closely related session "Making Neutron easy for people who
want basic Networking" from Sukhdev if your topics were covered that
