Neutron Pain Points

A survey of some of the usability and development challenges faced by Neutron to encourage consensus on how such issues might be best addressed.

Shortlist of suggested issues to discuss:


Application developers whose primary concern is logical connectivity may complain that the current set of Neutron primitives (Network, Subnet, Port) are confusing. Network engineers may complain that Neutron does an insufficient job of exposing networking primitives. How can Neutron provide better usability for these types of users?


Neutron is becoming more feature-full with each release but quality is suffering. What strategies can we employ to reverse this trend?


The complexity of Neutron has been increasing as more and more control-plane functionality is included. Should this trend be allowed to continue, or should the role of Neutron be reduced to providing glue between OpenStack and 3rd party networking options?
