Hi Bence,

Thanks for the pointers. I was aware of this https://bugs.launchpad.net/neutron/+bug/1631371, but not the blueprint you wrote. 

As suggested by Matt in https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1693535, I wrote a blueprint https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/expose-vlan-trunking, trying to tackle it in a simple manner.

    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.
