VPP Sandbox

Project Contact Name and Email

Repository Name



Given VPP's broad capabilities, it is expected that numerous related small efforts as libraries, plugins or various scripts, will be developed. This project intends to facilitate efforts bootstrapping and hosting as well as providing visibility and quality code review to VPP newcomers.

The repository will host various small efforts, each consisting in a root directory. It is required that each of these directories contain a file describing the goal of the effort, the main contributors, as well as its current state and intended evolution.


In order to be hosted, efforts must fulfill the following requirements:

  1. They must be within the overall scope of the consortium.
  2. They must be plugins, libraries, scripts, or other speculative bits of functionality, all related to VPP.
  3. They must be and remain small. If the amount of code, the number of contributors or the activity volume becomes significant, a specific project should be created via the normal project creation process.
  4. They must remain either active (under-development) or used (stable and maintained). Abandoned efforts will be removed.
  5. They must not stay in the sandbox more than 9 months.
