Hi Brandon,

Yep, that sounds like a good way to approach this. And FWIW, this week I'm
planning on moving several of the designs I've presented to the group into
blueprints / gerrit specs for the project and otherwise start working on a
roadmap to actually get the thing built.

In the mean time, there's still a ton that needs to be done on the Neutron
LBaaS side of things to make sure we get feature improvements and cleaner
Neutron API interfaces in before the Juno freeze. So I don't think there's
a reason anyone should be idle working on these two projects, eh.
