In devstack we have two more or less overlapping lib for deploying Neutron:
lib/neutron and lib/neutron-legacy.

lib/neutron-legacy was recently "undeprecated" (see [0]), and Openstack CI
mostly (fully?) uses it.
To avoid double maintenance, and confusion in settings we would like to
deprecate lib/neutron, for recent discussions see [1] and [2].
The plan is to keep lib/neutron for 2 cycles (that will be AA or the
release after Z) and delete lib/neutron then, and rename lib/neutron-legacy
to lib/neutron.

As You can see from the discussions below there are questions like how to
name the processes, log-files etc..., as lib/neutron-legacy uses q-* and
lib/neutron uses neutron-* names. The best would be to keep both in the
long term (we love q-* as historical tradition, but neutron-* looks like so
fresh and modern;))

If you have any thoughts suggestions or questions please answer to this
mail or comment on the deprecation patch: [3]
