Description Dmitry Tantsur 2017-07-18 10:54:00 EDT
Upstream has decided to deprecate the classic drivers (e.g. pxe_ipmitool) in favour of the new-style dynamic ones (e.g. ipmi). The deprecation is planned for Queens, and the removal is planned for Rocky.

We need to make sure we provide and support all necessary new-style drivers. We may also provide an upgrade procedure, moving e.g. from pxe_ilo to ilo, etc.
Comment 2 Ramon Acedo 2017-11-02 10:12:19 EDT
Dmitry, is this a TestOnly type of RFE? It looks like this will be replacing the classic drivers by the dynamic ones for QA and update the documentation but there isn't any new code.
Comment 3 Dmitry Tantsur 2017-11-02 13:04:34 EDT
Well, there is some code to write for the actual deprecation warnings, some upstream and downstream docs to update, CI work, etc.
Comment 4 Dmitry Tantsur 2017-12-07 05:23:41 EST
Unfortunately, due to overwhelming amount of documentation to update prior to deprecation, I have to move it to M3.
Comment 8 Dmitry Tantsur 2018-02-02 06:53:09 EST
Moving to POST. Even though https://review.openstack.org/#/c/534842/ is still pending, the core of the feature is there.
