The first patch of this high priority approved blueprint targeted for Juno-3 has been blocked by a core reviewer’s (Mark McClain) -2 since July 2nd. This patch was at patch-set 13 then, and has been repeatedly reviewed and updated to the current patch-set 22. However, there has been no comment or reason forthcoming from the reviewer on why the -2 still persists. The dependent patches have also gone through numerous iterations since.
There is a team of several people working on this feature across different OpenStack projects since Oct 2013. The feature has been discussed and iterated over weekly IRC meetings, design sessions spanning two summits, mailing list threads, a working PoC implementation, and a code sprint. Blocking the first patch required for this feature jeopardizes this year-long effort and the delivery of this feature in Juno. For many, this may sound like an all too familiar story, and hence this team would like to mitigate the issue while there is still time. Mark, can you please explain why your -2 still persists? If there are no major outstanding issues, can you please remove the -2? Neutron-PTL, can you please provide guidance on how we can make progress on this feature? For the benefit of anyone not familiar with this feature, please see .
