Description Dan Sneddon 2015-08-18 18:56:29 EDT
Description of problem:
It would be a nice feature if we could create a bridge and then patch it to another bridge inside of os-net-config.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
We can create bridges in os-net-config, but we can't yet create patches between the bridges.

Expected results:
We should be able to patch between bridges.

Additional info:
This would be nice for the following use case:

A 3rd-party Neutron driver needs to create ports that are on br-ex, but not have them be cleaned up by the neutron-ovs-cleanup script. One way to do this is to create a second bridge, then patch between the two bridges. Since the ports are not on br-ex, the neutron script won't clean up those ports.

This bug did not make the OSP 8.0 release.  It is being deferred to OSP 10.

This was actually completed some time ago, there is now an OvsPatchPort object object in os-net-config.
