Folks, It's been over a year since the last commit was made to the ZeroMQ driver in oslo.messaging. It is at the point where some of the related unit tests are beginning to fail due to bit rot. None of the current oslo.messaging contributors have a good enough understanding of the codebase to effectively fix it.
Personally I'm not sure the driver will work in production at all. Given this it was decided in Dublin that the ZeroMQ driver no longer meets the official policy for in tree driver support  and will be deprecated in Rocky. However it would be insincere for the team to give the impression that the driver is maintained for the normal 2 cycle deprecation process. Therefore the driver code will be removed in 'S'. The ZeroMQ driver is the largest body of code of any driver in the oslo.messaging repo, weighing in at over 5k lines of code. For comparison, the rabbitmq kombu driver consists of only about 2K lines of code. If any individuals are willing to commit to ownership of this codebase and keep the driver compliant with policy (see ), please follow up with bnemec or myself (kgiusti) on #openstack-oslo.
