My point above was referring to the ambiguity present in Julian's 
message to the list, which seemed to suggest the remit of vimage had 
increased beyond network virtualization.

How often a given topic is discussed is not analogous to in-depth 
testing. Surely someone as experienced as yourself is aware of this. Are 
you sure you read my message fully before responding to this thread?

I observe that your definition of the term bikeshed seems very subjective.

Nothing wrong with "Are you sure Y/N", to my mind, and if one further 
re-reads this thread, one will see that there are issues around vimage 
which have had to be teased out from others, and addressed, which Marko 
has already responded to.
