Eugene briefly presented the proposal. The initial question was about the scope of the project, and whether or not it intends to focus on the NFVI and VIM, or the MANO part (VNFM). The role of VNFFG Manager seems above VNFM in the stack. Another question was about the role of Intent approach in implementation of this project. Proposal described a dependency on the Policy-based Specification of Service Chaining and Service Instance Registration & Integration targeted at the OpenStack Kilo release. It was clarified that it would focus on requirement at Phase 1.

All agreed that the proposal needs update to clarify the scope. Further e-mail discussion is needed and can help clarify the project scope, and potential path of implementation at Phase 2 beyond requirement.

Communication with Cathy should be used and encouraged.

Hai Liu presented it and introduced the proposal. Initial question was about who is the receiver / consumer of the metadata. It was clarified that the focus is on data collection. It is expected that other projects, such as the Doctor project, would be able to use the output of this project receiving notifications of potential failures. This would allow preventative actions to be taken by entities, e.g. Doctor, receiving the data.

All agreed that further clarification on the use cases is needed to help define the goal of the project proposal, and to define the actions expected from the use cases. Author will revise the proposal and update the wiki.

Zhiqi introduced this project. Initial question was about the strong relationship with and dependency on the Copper and Promise projects. Thus close coordination with Copper and Promise will be important to the success of all of the projects.

Because the proposed Enhanced Scheduler in Nova is a key area of development, including resource isolation, further question was about the relationship and consumption model among Copper, Promise and the Enhanced Scheduler. It was suggested to enhance the diagram and clarify the producer-consumer model with Copper and Promise entities.

All agreed that further revision is needed to clarify above model and the scope.

Because the proposal needs more discussion and update with supporters, the proposal author requested to postpone it to next meeting. Postponed to next meeting.
