[Openstack-operators] The state of nova-network to neutron migration

Hi, I just wanted to make sure people know that a small group of us
got together in a hallway at linux.conf.au 2015 to talk about this. It
wasn't an attempt to exclude anyone, we just all happened to be in the
same place at the same time.

To that end, we made some notes from the chat, which are at
https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/nova-network-migration-lca2015 .
Specific points to note are that Angus Lees has volunteered to help
Oleg with the spec for this, and that we'd very much like to see a
discussion of this at the Nova midcycle meetup in a couple of weeks.

I'd also like to call out that there's a link to the mailing list
thread where we discussed CERN's concerns in the etherpad for
reference as well.
