Hi folks

I would like to ask your opinions.
[1] Nova parity VPN (Cloudpipe) is OpenStack Networking VPN first step.
Amazon VPC compatible api(*) is also great candidate to start.
And it is using IPSec.
The IPSec has more widely used than SSL-VPN in industry.
so, How about start with IPSec?

Currently, Cloudpipe is using SSL-VPN, However, Cloudpipe was intended to
let users to access to the VLAN, so I tend to think any VPN method is
OK if we can
accomplish it.

so if you want to start with SSL-VPN, please let us know.
In that case, we will start with SSL-VPN.

(*) may be not fully same API, but similer model

[2] Generic VPN Service model
It looks like there is no strong opinion to have "mode" attribute on
Generic VPN Service.
so we would like to remove this attribute.

I registered the BP for Generic VPN service here.

Is this OK for you guys?
