  1. Hello All, happy to participate in this for CNTT and OPNFV (number 3 above).

    1. Hi Rabi.

      Thanks for you help (and it was nice chatting with you in Prague two weeks ago).

      Please feel free to upload any appropriate material to the "OPNFV and CNTT" section in chapter 3. You can start with a very rough draft, and the rest of the workgroup can help you polish it.

      Also there are mentions of OPNFV in chapter 5 that may need some improvements.

      1. Thank you Ranny, will certainly do.

  2. Hello everyone,

    just letting you know, I've now started on Section 1 Introduction and am aiming to have an initial draft by 21 Feb.  I will blend in the exisiting material.
