During the Queens release cycle we announced the deprecation of
neutron-lbaas and neutron-lbaas-dashboard[1].

Today we are announcing the expected end date for the neutron-lbaas
and neutron-lbaas-dashboard deprecation cycles.  During September 2019
or the start of the “U” OpenStack release cycle, whichever comes
first, neutron-lbaas and neutron-lbaas-dashboard will be retired. This
means the code will be be removed and will not be released as part of
the "U" OpenStack release per the infrastructure team’s “retiring a
project” process[2].

We continue to maintain a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) wiki page
to help answer additional questions you may have about this process:
