I will miss the next two IRC meetings, so here is a quick summary
email of PTG topics of interest for networking-sfc in the Pike cycle.

* Release, stable branching, stadium requirements
For Ocata, neutron-lib patches are waiting for our stable branch
creation (should be OK today?). The release itself is not as urgent,
so we can still run some tests after merging the last open feature
[0], and before tagging the release
For Pike, stadium projects will synchronize releases with neutron [1]
Except from more generic requirements, no new specific requirements to
expect in this cycle

* Tempest tests
Two interesting items here:
 * Split tempest plugin repositories [2]: if agreed we will move the
tempest plugin in a separate branchless repository (and proper
configuration depending on features)
 * Refactor of tempest scenario base classes [3]: we will probably
have to keep our copy of manager.py, and update to new API when it is

* Python 3.5 support
This is a project-wide goal for Pike, we have python3 unit tests
already, but we should add a tempest/python3 check, and make it work
(without forgetting the currently buggy multinode check)

* neutron-lib hacking checks
These are additional PEP8 checks we should enable as a neutron-lib
consumer project. Some changes are underway [4], but we should enable
these in networking-sfc

* API updates
Changes need to be advertised via a new extension (SFC graphs current review)

* Push notifications
This is in progress for Neutron [5], but can be nice for stadium projects too

* Common classifier
This probably deserves its separate topic, but we had an interesting
session (possible consumers: networking-bpvpn, networking-sfc, FWaaS,
QoS, Tap-as-a-Service, …) [6]

The completed neutron etherpad is at [7], with Kevin's nice summary at [8]
I leave it to other PTG attendees to correct/extend this list!
