Stuart introduced this project to audience. Basically it is a companion of BGS using vRouter in OpenContrail. It is targeted for quick start of OpenStack/OpenContrail/KVM/Docker stack, and quick deployment of system for feature exploration in laptop and lab environment.

Bryan (AT&T) said that it is pretty good, and in line with the goal of single node environment. The question is if they are all open source-based. Stuart answered "yes", and indicated that the image will be based on Ubuntu.

Bryan also asked that some OpenStack features are missing, such as service function chaining. Stuart replied that essential features are from OpenContrail, and part of open source. Service Function Chaining is specifically tied to OpenContrail.

Uli (Huawei) asked if the project intends to make it flexible in terms of installers. Stuart clarified that it is really about a quick, single-node environment. It doesn't intend to address long-term OPNFV architecture.

Ray (Huawei) indicated that it is targeted for a sandbox and separate from release work, so it is not necessarily a single project. Chris (Ericsson) clarified that any project can be incubated without having to participate in any release. So a project doesn't have to be part of a release.

Through discussion, Stuart will revise the proposal as follows:
- clarify the tools with details in order not to mislead the expectation (i.e. not to set up high expectation)
- clarify that it doesn't intend to address long-term OPNFV architecture, which will be addressed by another project
- re-categorize it in "Integration and Testing" category.

Bin suggested that it is ready for TSC creation review subject to 2-week's timeframe.

Because of time constraint, meeting adjourned.

Meeting adjourned
