Hello,

Proposal for Virtual Tenant Network (VTN) project has been uploaded on the following wiki page.

https://wiki.opendaylight.org/view/OpenDaylight_Virtual_Tenant_Network_(VTN):Proposal

We are planning to contribute the source code of VTN.
Please elaborate on the following points so that we can make the arrangements for registering the same.

* Specific steps for registering the source code
Major portion of VTN source code has been written in C/C++, and some portions are written in Java.
I don't think that C/C++ should present any problem.

The Project Lifecycle: http://www.opendaylight.org/project-lifecycle-releases
calls for a minimum two week public comment period for project proposals (presuming you are seeking
to enter as an incubation project, rather than a bootstrap project). Once that period has passed a
creation review will be held, and presuming the TSC approves (which I would expect) development
resources (like git repos, etc) will be provided.

Because contributions of existing code need to go through IPR review prior to the creation review,
I would expect you would need to provide the code to the OpenDaylight staff for that process to conclude prior
to your creation review. You should email Phil Robb <probb@... <mailto:probb@...>> to arrange for those
mechanics
sooner rather than later.

* Package name used in Java
Currently, package name that we are using starts with com.nec.
Could we use, e.g., org.opendaylight.vtn, to change this to a vender neutral name?
Yes, org.opendaylight.vtn sounds very reasonable as a vendor neutral package name.

It is generally a good practice for packages to be named org.opendaylight.<repo name>, and I would expect
your git repo to be named vtn given the project name :)


* Deep dive
We would like to have deep dive session during the Hack fest on May 21 if it's appropriate.
I believe that the hackfest is being moved out towards June 6-7… it would be awesome to do a deep dive
then :)

Ed
