[openstack-dev] [horizon] [neutron] Horizon support for Neutron Trunks - PTL approval needed

Well the UIs for the extensions inside the main Neutron repo are in the
main horizon repo so far (e.g. routers, floating IPs, security groups,
etc). LBaaS is a separate repo with separate devs so it makes sense to me
that it would have its own UI repo.
Trunks would be the the first extension that lives in the Neutron tree that
would have its own UI repo living somewhere else. I don't see how we could
avoid bitrot (or find UI contributors in the first place) if every upstream
feature will be expected to have its own UI repo, core team, bug tracker,
and release management. That will be a huge overhead to adding support for
new neutron features.

Core Neutron features should be within Horizon, with extensions outside.
This is a little hazy since even the default behaviour in Neutron is still
a plugin, but thats the general idea. There are already some features
outside, like the lbaas dashboard. Personally, I’d keep them in their own
repo; makes it much easier to manage scope. It’d be a huge pain if one
extensions UI holds up others at release time due to broken tests etc.
