Dear OpenFlow/SDN friends,

here is a reminder for contributing to the open source spreadsheet
that will have its content migrated to a Wiki (to be then managed in
style of Wikipedia) starting in October.

If you already contributed in any form to the spreadsheet, please add
your name to the newly created tab on list of contributors.

As you may recall, we are trying to put together the most
comprehensive list of open source projects (currently 140+) in the
fields of softwarized networking (aka., SDN, NFV, MEC, etc.) to
build an always up-to-date online Wiki catalogue;

To this end, we are asking for contributions to the following
spreadsheet (shared with edit rights):

The first tab is the consolidated list of open source projects.
The second tab includes Tags that can be associated to each project
which will help classify and search for them in the future Wiki page.

You can contribute as follows:
- Add new open source projects
- Add / Edit Tags
- Add / Edit information of existing projects.

Any further ideas and questions on this initiative are more than welcome.
