Hi Ned,

I'm a Calico team member, not an operator, but I wanted to check if you 
really meant tenant networking as in per-tenant networks.  Because 
Calico as implemented so far with OpenStack is really more a provider 
network technology.  For example, we don't support overlapping IPs.


PS. Thanks for asking that question!  I'm also very interested in the 
answers, of course. :-)
