Subject: RE: [OpenDaylight TSC] [Project-proposals] Start the creation review for GNT
To GNT team,
I just quickly read through the GNT proposal.
A few comments . If the project only provides an unified view of the topology and track the changes of the topology across different vendor devices, it is going to be very complementary to FaaS since FaaS is more focus on the abstraction of the topology and provides logical network services over the abstracted topology.
But In the scope, it also states “At present, the logical network of this project is based on the implementation of neutron, features can also be extended if ODL users have other logical network models. “,
Sounds GNT also provides services on top of the topo and wondering what services it provides, if it provides Neutron like L2/L3 services as the quote above implies, then that seems overlaps with FaaS goal in some degree.
+Adding FAAS Mailing List
It would be great to see some cross project discussion and collaboration in this area, especially if there may exist some potential overlap.

Was there any discussions on how GNT compares to FaaS ? They seem similar in scope and seems like we had a similar discussion about scope overlap when FaaS was proposed.
Also would GNT use the TTP project or something similar?
