            Next meeting: Thursday, January 8, 2015
            Should we have an interim meeting, maybe on Dec 29, 30?? Only if anybody is interested
                        Skip through the holidays

Reinaldo would like to also discuss:
Can I suggest we discuss the OPNFV project in the call?

These Agenda items were not covered in today's meeting:

What to include in SFC Lithium:

-        Load Balancing, SFG

-        Openstack - SFC integration

-        OF SFC Plug-in uses its own API instead of provider API

-        SFC Sonar clean-up

-        The rest of the items in the SFC Lithium TODO list: https://wiki.opendaylight.org/view/Service_Function_Chaining:Main#SFC_TODO_Lithium

Suggestions by Reinaldo:

-        I think we should start a discussion on the list about SFG

o   Not sure who will do what

o   I think we should take the design to the next level, come up with chunks of work  and see who wants to do what.

o   We can continue that discussion on the meeting if enough interest.

-        What to do with OVSDB plug-in?

o   Today unfinished. Future unknown...

-        What to do with LISP plug-in?

o   Anybody uses it? Future unknown...

-        OF SFC Plug-in uses its own API instead of provider API

o   I guess somebody should change that

o   Candidate for Lithium

-        Align SB Rest with OF Listener.

-        Openstack - SFC integration. We should make this work at some point.
