[openstack-dev] [neutron] Group-based Policy Sub-team Meetings

I'm afraid your meeting vanished from the Meetings page [2] when user amotiki reworked neutron meetings ^.^
Is the meeting for Thu 1600 UTC still on?

A few heads-up questions (couldn't attend the HK design summit Friday meeting):

1) In the summit session Etherpad [3], ML2 implementation mentions insertion of arbitrary metadata to hint to underlying implementation. Is that (a) the plug-ing reporting its policy-bound realization? (b) the user further specifying what should be used? (c) both? Or (d) none of that but just some arbitrary message of the day?

2) Would policies _always_ map to the old Neutron entities? 
E.g. when I have policies in place, can I query related network/port, subnet/address, router elements on the API or are there no equivalents created? Would the logical topology created under the policies be exposed otherwise? for e.g. monitoring/wysiwyg/troubleshoot purposes.

3) Do the chain identifier in your policy rule actions match to "Service Chain UUID" in Service Insertion, Chaining and API [4]

4) Are you going to describe L2 services the way group policies work? I mean, why would I need a LoadBalancer or Firewall instance before I can insert it between two groups when all that load balancing/firewalling requires is nothing but a policy for group communication itself? - regardless the service instance used to carry out the service.

Best, Manuel
