Hi. One of the last things blocking Ironic from graduating is deciding whether or not we need a Nova API proxy for the old baremetal extension to new fangled Ironic API. The TC has asked that we discuss whether we think this functionality is actually necessary.
It should be noted that we're _not_ talking about migration of deployed instances from baremetal to Ironic. That is already implemented. What we are talking about is if users post-migration should be able to expect their previous baremetal Nova API extension to continue to function, or if they should use the Ironic APIs from that point onwards. Nova had previously thought this was required, but it hasn't made it in time for Juno unless we do a FFE, and it has been suggested that perhaps its not needed at all because it is an admin extension. To be super specific, we're talking about the "baremetal nodes" admin extension here. This extension has the ability to: - list nodes running baremetal - show detail of one of those nodes - create a new baremetal node - delete a baremetal node Only the first two of those would be supported if we implemented a proxy. So, discuss.
