Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Cloudstack network-element plugin(ver 4.2) to orchestrate Juniper's switches
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2013 17:44:19 GMT
Hi Pradeep,
Take a look at this: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/x/6x-VAQ
Feature freeze for 4.4 is targeted for end of February. So, now would be
the ideal time to propose this feature to the community.
See https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/x/0h-VAQ for how to go about this.
