Bug Description

Hi team,
according to the latest annoucement of https://github.com/tomaszmrugalski/dibbler,
seems the said project is concluded by lacking maintainers,
and I also found the said tools have been as the Ipv6 dhcp default implementation.

The author suggest https://gitlab.isc.org/isc-projects/kea . Is there any plan for this in Neutron team?

Thanks very much

Yeah, it's not a bug for Neutron, but the following resposibility of that tools need to be clear, that's the reason I raise here, and want to know how Neutron team treat it. Abandon? Self-maintaining? Or Choose an new one?

I don't know about any plans in Neutron to work on another driver for PD. But feel free to propose patch with some. If You have some plan to do that, You can IMO propose some short description of what software do You want to use and how You want to implement such driver. We can than discuss that in the drivers meeting as any other RFE.
