OpenStack Neutron Specifications
This git repository is used to hold approved design specifications for additions to the Neutron project. Reviews of the specs are done in gerrit, using a similar workflow to how we review and merge changes to the code itself.
The layout of this repository is:
You can find an example spec in doc/source/specs/template.rst. A skeleton that contains all the sections required for a spec file is located in doc/source/specs/skeleton.rst and can be copied, then filled in with the details of a new blueprint for convenience.
Specifications are proposed for a given release by adding them to the specs/<release> directory and posting it for review. The implementation status of a blueprint for a given release can be found by looking at the blueprint in launchpad. Not all approved blueprints will get fully implemented.
Specifications have to be re-proposed for every release. The review may be quick, but even if something was previously approved, it should be re-reviewed to make sure it still makes sense as written.
Prior to the Juno development cycle, this repository was not used for spec reviews. Reviews prior to Juno were completed entirely through Launchpad blueprints:
Please note, Launchpad blueprints are still used for tracking the current status of blueprints. For more information, see:

To validate that the specification is syntactically correct (i.e. get more confidence in the Jenkins result), please execute the following command:
tox, the documentation will be available for viewing in HTML format in the
