[openstack-dev] [Neutron][IPv6] Allowing Plugins in tree that explicitly do not support IPv6

The amount of tests that we are having to add skips to for the One Convergence plugin has grown quite a bit lately.


This is the only plugin that inherits from the NeutronDbPluginV2 class and has completely disabled creating Subnets that have an ip_version of 6.


I hate to single out this plugin. Before this development cycle, open source plugins would allow the creation of Subnets with ip_version set to 6, and then have lots of bugs which would prevent any instances from actually obtaining IPv6 addresses and routing. But we didn't have to explicitly skip tests every time someone wanted to fix bugs - like the following patch.


Also, I want to highlight some meeting minutes, where it was discussed that in the K release, all plugins will be required to support IPv6. I hope we can discuss this, build consensus, and ensure that the K release requirement is reasonable.
