hi ahmed,

some more inputs.

not sure if survey-takers will be willing/allowed to answer with specifics for proprietary controllers, so there should be a choice for 'proprietary', without mentioning actual product.

some of these questions should probably have a write-in input if possible in the survey format.

for example -'reason for not adopting sdn', 'pain points' , 'deployment models', 

should have an 'other' choice, and a box under it to type some comments explaining the 'other' option.

Hello, everyone.


On today's TSC meeting we had a guest, Amed Sawaf from the LFN End User Advisory Group.  We discussed a community survey.  

At a high level, we identified some initial goals for the community survey:

  • Need to identify users
  • Need to identify use cases and which are being actively used
  • How is ODL being consumed
    • Which Projects and which release is being used?
    • Is there a fork of the code that is being maintained? What version is being used?
  • Will Operators be willing to have DevOps teams contribute to the upstream community?

The TSC would like to collect additional feedback from the community to see if we can refine the survey questions even further.
