Mission statement

The sub-team aims to define the use cases and identify and prioritise the requirements which are needed to run Network Function Virtualization (NFV) workloads on top of OpenStack. This work includes identifying functional gaps, creating blueprints, submitting and reviewing patches to the relevant OpenStack projects and tracking their completion in support of NFV.
The requirements expressed by this group should be made so that each of them have a test case which can be verified using an OpenSource implementation. This is to ensure that tests can be done without any special hardware or proprietary software, which is key for continuous integration tests in the OpenStack gate. If special setups are required which cannot be reproduced on the standard OpenStack gate, the use cases proponent will have to provide a 3rd party CI setup, accessible by OpenStack infra, which will be used to validate developments against.
