Neutron community,

During the past several releases, while leading the VPNaaS project, I've
seen many great enhancements and features added to the VPNaaS project by
the community, including support for StrongSwan, Libreswan, completion of
the project split out, functional and rally tests, endpoint groups,
multiple local subnets, vendor drivers, etc.

There is still work needed (certificate support the most important,
followed by documentation and scale testing), but there is a solid (in my
bias and subjective opinion :) foundation in place for people to play with
this capability.

As I mentioned to Armando at the summit, it's time for me to move on to
other areas of Neutron, and as such, I'm stepping down as VPNaaS chair and
wrapping up work on the project over the next few weeks. I'll still try to
review VPNaaS commits as much as possible, and be available to advise in
this area.

Towards that end, I've updated the VPNaaS wiki page (
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Meetings/VPNaaS) to list what I think are
outstanding work that can be done in this area, from important to wish
items.  Meetings have transitioned to on-demand, and future meetings can
either be done as an on-demand topic in the Neutron IRC meeting, or as an
on-demand special meeting.

I'll go through the VPNaaS bugs in Launchpad and comment on them, as to my
opinion of importance, priority, relevance, etc.
