I'm a Calico team member, not an operator, but I wanted to check if you
really meant tenant networking as in per-tenant networks. Because
Calico as implemented so far with OpenStack is really more a provider
network technology. For example, we don't support overlapping IPs.
PS. Thanks for asking that question! I'm also very interested in the
answers, of course. :-)
