Greetings John,

You've contacted the infrastructure team for the OpenDaylight project which handles resources and infrastructure for the OpenDaylight project. I think you intended to contact the OpenDaylight dev community. I would recommend sending your email to the opendaylight-users mailing list:


Which will send you to the folks who can help you with OpenDaylight usage issues.

Hope this helps,
