Team started to discuss the status of review of Blueprints. Dave Neary (RedHat) will send an email to community to look for:
- Update of projects regarding which upstream open source projects are relevant (Code)
- Any Blueprints each project has planned for Mitaka, and we can keep track on (BP)

  • Project Proposal Discussion

Vikram (Dell) introduced this project proposal (

Vikram started with pre-ovn status (i.e. problem statement), and introduced what is ovn. Uli (Huawei) asked if there is an open source project for ovn. Vikram replied yes, and the source code is part of ovs. Dave Neary (RedHat) further indicated that there is no underlay network management. In south bound, it only manages ovs virtual switch, but not the openflow physical switch.

Vikram (Dell) then introduced ovn architecture, and the mapping of logical flows to physical flows. Vikram further shared what is happening in OpenStack, i.e. OpenStack Neutron plugin focuses on OpenStack APIs,and ovn handles solving networking problems. So ovn+OpenStack means agentless lean networking.

Meeting adjourned.
