You need now to have at least a v2.1 (formerly known as v3) extension. V2
support if you want but I think once v2.1 is fully merged and tested (which
may not be that far away at all) we should freeze v2 and rely just on v2.1
for new features. Otherwise the interaction between v2.1 being exactly
equivalent to v2 plus having microversion support for v2.1 will get a bit

As the other Chris mentioned, the first step however is to get a nova-spec
submitted which needs to fully describe the API additions that you want to
