Experimental features framework

Some Neutron features are not supported because the community doesn’t have the resources and/or technical expertise to maintain them anymore. As they arise, the Neutron team designates these features as experimental. Deployers can continue using these features at their own risk, by explicitly enabling them in the experimental section of neutron.conf.


Of course, the Neutron core team would love to return experimetal features to the supported status, if interested parties step up to maintain them. If you are interested in maintaining any of the experimental features listed below, please contact the PTL shown in the Neutron project page.

The following table shows the Neutron features currently designated as experimetal:

ML2 Linuxbridge driver


This is an example of how to enable the use of an experimental feature:
