At the summit the nova team marked the nova-network to neutron migration as
a priority [0], so we are collectively interested in seeing this happen and
want to help in any way possible.   With regard to a nova point of contact,
anyone in nova-specs-core should work, that way we can cover more time

spec [1], and it sounds like it would be good to get a few nova-cores
reviewing it as well.
