[dev] Discussion on "Linux Foundation Networking Projects"

We can all discuss this next tuesday. I think it is essential for 
everyone to
educate themselves.

If you have additional information which you are allowed to share, then 
please feel
free to send a link or the actual document(s).

The goal for next week is for everyone to discuss the issue - so that 
TSC can make a formal decision the week after.
