Hello Martin, all,

Thanks to share this information. I also got it internally.

>From the internal presentation that I read, FRR is concern by this new LFN umbrella. Extract from the presentation:

"/The proposal has been approved by OPNFV, ODL, FD.IO, ONAP. PNDA, SNAS and FRR will join as well./"

What I could say, is that Orange is officially a Platinum member of ONAP and completely support this new initiative from the Linux Foundation. For us, it is also natural that __all__ Networking projects within the Linux Foundation will join this new umbrellawhich, of course, concern FRRdespite that it is a small project compared to ODL, ONAP and others.

So, we, at Orange, completely support this initiate.

> From the original meeting invitation by the Linux Foundation to the TSC:
>> Hello Open Source Networking Project Developers:
>> The Linux Foundation is proud and humbled to host such a collection of
>> critical and influential open source networking projects for enterprise,
>> cloud, and carriers alike.  Over the past 5 years these projects have
>> formed, grown, and matured into key infrastructure components on which
>> tomorrow’s networking solutions are based.
>> Through this journey, members across various networking projects have
>> requested alignment of the business governance and a greater opportunity
>> for technical leverage and collaboration.  To that end, the Linux
>> Foundation has embarked on a plan to provide a structure that allows for
>> aligned governance & cross project collaboration while maintaining the
>> technical independence of all projects.
>> To explain this exciting opportunity, answer questions, and get your
>> feedback, we are hosting a pair of Webinars next week on Nov. 6th, and
>> 7th.  If you’ve been hearing about “Harmonization”, and/or “Umbrella”
>> activities and want to understand where we are with those initiatives,
>> please join us for this Webinar.
> If you want more details, then please listen to the recording of the call at
