Hi Robert,

I'm late to this thread, but let me add a bit. There was an attempt
for trunk support in nova metadata on the Pike PTG:


But that was abandoned right after the PTG, because the agreement
seemed to be in favor of putting the trunk details into the upcoming
os-vif object. The os-vif object was supposed to be described in a new
patch set to this change:


Unfortunately there's not much happening there since. Looking back now
it seems to me that turning the os-vif object into a prerequisite made
this work too big to ever happen. I definitely didn't have the time to
take that on.

But anyway I hope the abandoned spec may provide relevant input to you.
