The generation of Neutron configuration files using the oslo config
generator is being introduced in Mitaka as part of blueprint [1] and bug
[2]. This is broken down into two phases: Neutron core and Neutron *aaS

The first part of the first phase is the generation of sample core
configuration files in patch [3]. The next part is the removal of the
sample configuration files from the core repository in patch [4]. Patch [3]
and [5] make the static sample configuration files in the Neutron
repository redundant.  Developers should no longer update these
configuration files as  they will be removed in patch[4]. Refer to the
Neutron contribution guide for more details.

The final phase of the blueprint is the update of the Neutron *aaS projects
for configuration generation. These commits will be associated to bug [2].

It is advised that Neutron sub-projects do not keep their configuration
files in their respective trees and instead generate them using a similar
approach as Neutron does. Operators should refer to the release notes for
more details.
