Hi Octavia folks,

This email is to announce that we are currently in the process of retiring
both neutron-lbaas and the Octavia v1 API. We said this would happen in
September 2019 or the OpenStack "U" release, whichever came first. Because
September of 2019 occurs during the Train release cycle, there will be no
Train release of neutron-lbaas. We will therefore be retiring the
neutron-lbaas repository and the Octavia v1 API effective immediately, as
there is no reason to continue to maintain them if no release is

Reminder: The Octavia v1 API was used by the neutron-lbaas Octavia provider
driver and was not an end-user API. The Octavia v1 API is a
proprietary API and is not compatible with the LBaaS v2 API
specification or any other LBaaS API specification.

If you have questions about this deprecation cycle please see the FAQ wiki:

If you have questions or concerns not covered by the FAQ, please reach
out to the Octavia team either by using the "[octavia]" subject prefix
on this mailing list or in our IRC channel #openstack-lbaas.

We look forward to working with you moving forward with Octavia LBaaS!
