Hi Stefano,

AFAICT, there is nothing that can be done with the GBP API that cannot 
be done with the low-level regular Neutron API.

Further, if the Nova integration of the GBP API does not occur in the 
Juno timeframe, what benefit will GBP in Neutron give you? Specifics on 
the individual API calls that you would change would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your input!
