Hi Steve,

We are have OpenStack gap analysis documents in ETSI NFV under member only access. I can work on getting public version of the documents (at least a draft) to fuel the kick start.

To try and kick start things I have created a table on the wiki [1] based on the *DRAFT* NFV Performance & Portability Best Practises document [2]. This really lists workload types rather than specific applications, although I've put in an examples column we can populate with them.

I find it a useful way to quickly break down some of the characteristics of NFV applications at a glance. What do people think of this as something to start with? Remember, it's a wiki! So anyone is welcome to either expand the table or start adding more concrete user stories (e.g. around ETSI NFV use case number 5 that Itai and I have been referring to, or any other VNF for that matter) in this section (we may/want need to create a separate page but for now it seems OK to get started here).
