(Another nomination Statement)
Consistent and significant contribution to the maturity and success of OPNFV as a community for the entire year since the inauguration of OPNFV, including:
(1) He runs the technical meeting every Thursday during the entire year for peer review of every project proposal. This is critically important at the initial and difficult stage of starting up OPNFV, incubating projects and building up our community, which significantly contributed to the maturity and success of OPNFV as a community today.
(2) He is the top (#1) contributor of OPNFV wiki pages / contents, which is another significant contribution to OPNFV as a community today.
(3) He also organizes community review of blueprints resulting from various projects, whenever available throughout the year, such as Doctor and Multisite, and community discussion of cross-project topic such as Intent.
(4) He is the PTL of IPv6 project, and successfully lead the team to perform gap analysis with OpenStack and Open Daylight, and deliver Proof-of-Concept of IPv6 infrastructure in both native OpenStack environment and integrated OS+ODL environment.
In a word, throughout the entire year, Bin Hu has consistently and significantly contributed to the maturity and success of OPNFV as a community today as well as to the success of IPv6 project as PTL, and is the top (#1) contributor to OPNFV wiki. Thus I nominate Bin Hu for OPNFV Annual Award.

Name: Peter Lee
Company: ClearPath Networks Contributions to OPNFV: Leading/driving the OPNFV Promise Project efforts from its inception, from requirements to alignment across multiple groups to community building to provide open source code and finally to implementation. Steadfast contributions with code submissions, open-sourcing an innovative tool (YangForge) that accelerates run-time models generation by automatically generating APIs against an input Yang data schema.
