Hi folks

I would like to discuss whether supporting OpenSwan or StrongSwan or Both for
ipsec driver?

We choose StrongSwan because of the community is active and plenty of docs.
However It looks like RHEL is only supporting OpenSwan.

so we should choose

(A) Support StrongSwan
(B) Support OpenSwan
(C) Support both
   (C-1) Make StrongSwan default
   (C-2) Make OpenSwan default

Actually, I'm working on C-2.
The patch is still WIP https://review.openstack.org/#/c/42264/

Besides the patch is small, supporting two driver may burden
in H3 including docs or additional help.
IMO, this is also a valid comment.
