Hi Ian, I do not have one definition per se for the L2 gateway. Every use case tends to define it in differently :-). The desire (and goal) is to come up with "an" API within Kilo cycle, upon which folks can start to build their use cases, and (hopefully) iteratively come up with an API which covers most, if not all, use cases.
For past few cycles (going all the way back to Hong Kong summit), we have been discussing about this API, but, have not been able to converge. During Paris summit (in the pods), a reasonable number of vendors participated in the discussion to build upon the proposal made my Maruti (from HP) to come up with the a "starting point" for this API. Maruti and Armando (along with others) have been iterating over the spec proposed by Maruti ( I posted the link on the wiki). We felt, it is about time that we get together in a regular meeting form to discuss as to what we have have so far and see how we can make it reality for Kilo cycle. I realize that this may not fill all the bills. Once we have a working version, we can alway build upon it and bring in more and more use case as we move forward. Please join us on IRC on this Monday and share your wisdom with other members. -Sukhdev On Jan 4, 2015 2:08 AM, "Kevin Benton" <blak...@gmail.com> wrote: > Weasels > > On Sat, Jan 3, 2015 at 2:57 PM, Ian Wells <ijw.ubu...@cack.org.uk> wrote: > >> Sukhdev, >> >> Since the term is quite broad and has meant many things in the past, can >> you define what you're thinking of when you say 'L2 gateway'? >> >> Cheers, >> -- >> Ian. >> >> On 2 January 2015 at 18:28, Sukhdev Kapur <sukhdevka...@gmail.com> wrote: >> >>> Hi all, >>> >>> HAPPY NEW YEAR. >>> >>> Starting Monday (Jan 5th, 2015) we will be kicking of bi-weekly meetings >>> for L2 Gateway discussions. >>> >>> We are hoping to come up with an initial version of L2 Gateway API in >>> Kilo cycle.
