[openstack-dev] [Nova][Neutron] Thoughts on the nova<->neutron interface

We have attempted several times to start a conversation around the
interface between nova and neutron and its problems, starting with the fact
that it's chatter than two Italians arguing about football (*).
Indeed the first attempt at fixing these problems goes back to the Fall
2012 summit [1]. While we probably don't want to introduce yet another
service to this aim, it might be worth giving another shot at having these
two project communicate in a decent way. I know that other developers are
interested in this and are probably even already actively working on this

In my opinion it might not be such a bad idea to start this conversation at
the upcoming nova meetup, if there will be enough interest from the
participants. I have started the etherpad [2] for discussing issues of the
current implementation, goals, architecture, and design.

As for timelines, it is very likely already too late for shipping this in
Kilo, but we're probably still on time for completing this work by the "L"


(*) being Italian I am entitled to make jokes about Italians without
offending anyone, I hope.
