[Openstack-operators] [nova] proposal to postpone nova-network core functionality removal to Stein

Hello Operators and Devs,
This cycle at the PTG, we had decided to start making some progress
toward removing nova-network  (thanks to those who have helped!) and
so far, we've landed some patches to extract common network utilities
from nova-network core functionality into separate utility modules. And
we've started proposing removal of nova-network REST APIs .
At the cells v2 sync with operators forum session at the summit , we
learned that CERN is in the middle of migrating from nova-network to
neutron and that holding off on removal of nova-network core
functionality until Stein would help them out a lot to have a safety net
as they continue progressing through the migration.
If we recall correctly, they did say that removal of the nova-network
REST APIs would not impact their migration and Surya Seetharaman is
double-checking about that and will get back to us. If so, we were
thinking we can go ahead and work on nova-network REST API removals this
cycle to make some progress while holding off on removing the core
functionality of nova-network until Stein.
I wanted to send this to the ML to let everyone know what we were
thinking about this and to receive any additional feedback folks might
have about this plan.
