I read the meeting log and etherpad, and find that you mentioned OPNFV Multisite and Kingbird
project. Some comment on these multi-site related projects: OPNFV multisite, kingbird, tricircle.

Multisite is a requirement project in OPNFV to identify the gap and requirement 
in OpenStack to make OpenStack work for NFV multi-site cloud.

Kingbird is one sub-project of Multisite, started after gap analysis in OPNFV, 
which is aiming at centralized quota management, centralized view for 
distributed virtual resources, synchronization of ssh keys, images, flavors, 
etc. across regions in OpenStack multi-region deployments. 
Currently the project is working on key-pair sync, and 
centralized quota management feature has been implemented in OPNFV
C release. Kingbird is one major topic in OPNFV Multisite weekly meeting.

While Tricircle is one OpenStack big-tent official project, which was accepted in
Nov.2016, and has been narrowed its scope on networking automation across Neutron in
OpenStack multi-region deployments during the big-tent application. 
Tricircle has basic features of L2/L3 networking across OpenStack cloud, currently local 
network and shared_VLAN based L2/L3 networking are supported, and is working on
VxLAN L2 networking across Neutron, so that L2/L3 networking can also leverage the 
VxLAN L2 networking capability. You can refer to (review) the networking guide prepared:

During the discussion happened in 2015 , both kingbird / tricircle are candidate 
solutions to address the multisite clouds, Kingbird and Tricircle 
can work together or separately in OpenStack multi-region deployment scenario, they are 
complimented each other now. Kingbird has no features about networking 
automation, and Tricircle has no features related to Nova/Cinder...

Tricircle is mostly visible in OpenStack community, while Kingbird is mostly 
visible in OPNFV community.

Welcome to join the meeting:
   Tricircle: IRC meeting: 
https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=openstack-meeting on every Wednesday 
starting from UTC 13:00
   Multisite & Kingbird: IRC: 
http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=opnfv-meeting on every Thursday 8:00-9:00 
UTC (During winter time, means CET 9:00 AM).

Best Regards
Chaoyi Huang (joehuang)
