Hi all,

If you see your project name in the subject that is because a global search 
revived usage of "pxe_ipmitool", "agent_ipmitool" or "pxe_ssh" drivers in the 
non-unit-test context in one or more of your repositories.

The classic drivers, such as pxe_ipmitool, were deprecated in Queens, and we're 
on track with removing them in Rocky. Please read [1] about differences between 
classic drivers and newer hardware types. Please refer to [2] on how to update 
your code.

Finally, the pxe_ssh driver was removed some time ago. Please use the standard 
IPMI driver with the virtualbmc project [3] instead.

Please reach out to the ironic team (here or on #openstack-ironic) if you have 
any questions or need help with the transition.
