Subject Re: 4.11 : Physical networking migration ; Config Drive support
Date Tue, 19 Dec 2017 21:15:14 GMT
Also, both PRs have been (re)rebased today :

Network migration : https://github.com/apache/cloudstack/pull/2259
Config Drive : https://github.com/apache/cloudstack/pull/2097

Hope to make these happen.

Thanks,

Kris
