[k8s][magnum] Kubernetes In Tree Provider Scheduled for Removal in 1.17
After speaking with the SIG-Cloud-Provider leadership this week about the
status of the in-tree OpenStack provider for Kubernetes, weâ??ve decided
that barring a major blocker we will be removing the code during the 1.17
release cycle. This means that any code that depends on the in-tree
provider will not work with the Kubernetes 1.17 release and after.
The in-tree code has been deprecated for over a year now, and
SIG-OpenStack has maintained an external provider that has moved
beyond the in-tree code in features and support.
Old releases of Kubernetes will continue to ship with the OpenStack
provider code and work with existing projects. While I would strongly
prefer to just remove the code in the 1.16 release, the logistics just
It's time for us to turn our support fully to the external provider and
stop depending on the in-tree code.
