[openstack-dev] [Fuel] vxlan support

Tue Jun 2 20:26:42 UTC 2015
VXLAN was moved to 7.0, as you noted it won't make 6.1. Mirantis has
identified this as a high priority for 7.0 so it should get more attention
this time. However any assistance in CR / Testing is always appreciated.

The plugin tasks run as separate puppet jobs so they are not bound by this
restriction. Going forward with granular tasks, this will only be a problem
within the specific task.
