"on the private network" should be changed by "on the management
network", because there's also a virtual machine network which connects
all compute nodes, and the network gateway (eg: neutron-server).

"used locally by OpenStack" isn't appropriate either, IMO. It's really
used by nova, and not by the neutron agent that does the networking, and
which would be setup on the same machine, for example.
