Well, if anyone wants to join me, I'm dipping my toe in on list over at the OpenCompute networking project, I'd love to have more NYC*BUG folks over there who care about the networking (and switching hardware):

Thanks .ike - this is of particular interest to me since i am currently
working in both the openstack and opencompute world right now.  although
i believe opencompute is (or should be) OS agnostic since its primary
focus is on hardware design at the rack/dc level.  perhaps i'm missing

having said that - there is support in openstack/neutron for
opencontrail(1).  they are working on a freebsd port which i'm pretty
excited about.
