nova-cloud-controller not installing nova-network

To my knowlege you can achieve the "flat" networking setup you described with neutron.

In my opinion nova-networking is long gone, and you'll be better off learning neutron going forward.

Subject: nova-cloud-controller not installing nova-network

On Trusty, the description of the nova-cloud-controller charm says it installs nova-network, and everything seems to indicate that it supports it, but the package doesn't seem to ever actually be installed.

Is this by design to push people to Neutron, or is it an oversight?

For what it's worth, there are still legit use cases for nova-networking. For example, I want to get openstack setup to create vms for serving a large number of local users. Having the VMs live directly on the local office network is not only simple, but it allows the best performance since I avoid having to shunt all the VM traffic through a single router, which Neutron seems to require.

Manually installing nova-network package helps in that instances now launch, but there still isn't functional networking. What is the recommended way forward?
