Although we are past the non-priority deadline, I have been encouraged to request this late exception for Project Calico's spec and code adding VIF_TYPE_TAP to Nova.
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/130732/ (spec) https://review.openstack.org/#/c/146914/ (code) Why might you consider this? - It is a small, self-contained change, of similar (or less) scope as other non-priority VIF drivers that have been granted exceptions during the last two weeks. - It is the basis for a useful class of future OpenStack networking experimentation that could be pursued without requiring any further Nova changes - hence I think it should reduce the future workload on Nova reviewers. (This has been discussed in the openstack-dev thread starting at http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2014-December/052129.html.) - The spec was approved for Kilo (and is still merged AFAICS in the nova-specs repository), and the code was constructively and positively reviewed by several reviewers, if not by cores, leading in particular to improvements in its unit test coverage. Please let me know what you think. Apart from rebasing that I would expect to be trivial, this enhancement is all good to go as soon as anyone gives the word.
