0) DPDK acceptance policy on un-implemented API
- New APIs without implementation is not accepted.
- In order to accept a new API, At minimum
a) Need to provide an unit test case or example application
b) If the API is about HW abstraction, at least one driver
should be implemented. Preferably two.
c) If there are strong objections on ML about the need
for more than one driver for a specific API then
the technical board can make a decision.
- Konstantin volunteered to send existing un-implemented API
to the mailing list.
- The existing un-implemented APIs will be deprecated in v19.05.
- Deprecated un-implemented API will be removed in v19.08
