Subject RE: [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-657) VMware vNetwork Distributed Virtual Switch support in CloudStack
Date Thu, 21 Feb 2013 14:26:10 GMT
Hi Ilya,

Rebasing the patches against master instead of 4.1 branch.
As the feature is targeted for 4.1 it makes sense to merge the patches into master rather
than 4.1 branch.
Currently testing the rebased bits, would re-submit as soon as verification is done.

Regards,
Sateesh
