> Hello
> Currently puppet-neutron supports deploying networking-ansible[1].
> However I noticed the project looks unmaintained.
>  - No release was made since stable/victoria
>  - Its job template has not been updated still points
> openstack-python3-wallaby-jobs
>    (likely because of no release activity)
>  - setup.cfg still indicates support for Python 2 while it does not
> support 3.6/7/9
> Although the repo got a few patches merged 6 months ago, I've not seen any
> interest
> in maintaining the repository.
> Based on the above observations, I'd propose deprecating the support in
> Zed and removing it
> in the post-Zed release. TripleO also supports networking-ansible but that
> will be also deprecated
> and removed because the dependent implementation will be removed.
> (That's why I added the tripleo tag)
> If you have any concerns then please let me know. If we don't hear any
> concerns in a few
> weeks then I'll propose the deprecation.
> I'm adding the [neutron] tag in case anybody in the team is interested in
> fixing the maintenance status.
> IIUC networking-ansible is not part of the stadium but I'm not aware of
> any good alternatives...
