Comment 1 Ihar Hrachyshka 2017-07-26 16:20:49 UTC
My understanding is that all the relevant neutron patches are merged.

Comment 2 Ihar Hrachyshka 2017-07-26 16:23:23 UTC
Sorry, no OSP build yet that would include the patch.

Comment 5 Assaf Muller 2017-11-30 22:09:33 UTC
We're treating this as an upstream / partner patch, not an in-house RFE. We will not perform in-house testing for OSP 12, so I'm removing the RFE keyword.

Comment 8 Lon Hohberger 2018-03-29 10:34:26 UTC
According to our records, this should be resolved by openstack-neutron-11.0.2-1.el7ost.  This build is available now.
