Hi StarlingX community,

We had a handful of people on the Community call today. We decided to use the meeting to discuss some ongoing challenges and next steps.

Scott Kamp brought up a few items with regards to network configuration recommendations and challenges within the platform:

* Network bond + LAG
  - The documentation suggests 3 networks in a standards setup. This translates to 6 interfaces when setting up a LAG, which is too many.
  - Using VLAN as a workaround doesn’t always work, not every commercial network provider allows for that setup.
  - There’s an issue with bonding in Debian Bullseye
    + See the earlier email on starlingx-discuss: https://lists.starlingx.io/pipermail/starlingx-discuss/2023-March/013877.html
    + —> Has anyone ran or looked into the above issue? ^^

* Wireguard
  - While Wireguard is enabled on StarlingX, Wireguard tools is not. Scott and team are working on testing and adding it

* Calico support
  - Scott and team are working with Calico and are planning to add that to the platform
  - Scott will propose a spec to introduce the feature idea and move the conversation forward

* Addressing the lower attendance
  - Wednesday was a public holiday in China, which probably affected attendance on Thursday morning
  - Ildiko will look into advertising the APAC time slot call better in the region
