Panel: The Future of Neutron Plugin and Driver Innovation

During the Kilo development cycle, the Neutron team made it a priority to focus on how the project itself could continue at a high velocity and continue to enable innovation and that same velocity for plugin and driver owners. The end result of this was the concept of "Plugin Decomposition." This process entails the migration of plugin and driver backend logic out of the Neutron tree and into separate repositories owned entirally by the plugin and driver owners. This is a multi-release effort, with the kickoff happening during Kilo development.

This panel will take an in depth look at the recent changes to OpenStack Neutron around plugin decomposition. We'll have experts on hand from the Neutron side who designed this and have been helping to shepard people through the process. And we'll have plugin and driver maintainers who have gone through the process and will share their experiences.

The goal of plugin decomposition is to enable faster velocity for plugin and driver owners, and to increase that same velocity in the Neutron project itself. We'll cover these aspects of plugin decomposition. We'll also discuss the aspects of how this has affected the plugin and driver community.

Join us as we discuss this and come with questions you may have about the process itself, the future of plugins and drivers in Neutron, and innovation in the plugin and driver community.
