  • Statement of Interest in being the OpenDaylight SPC Representative:

As the ODL TSC Chair and ODL representative to the LFN TAC, it will be in the best interests of OpenDaylight for Abhijit to be the ODL representative to the LFN SPC. Reason is that I will have the context of all three - the ODL TSC, LFN TAC as well as the LFN SPC.
