+Description: VLAN management daemon
+ VLANd is a python program intended to make it easy to manage
+ port-based VLAN setups across multiple switches in a network. It is
+ designed to be vendor-agnostic, with a clean pluggable driver API to
+ allow for a wide range of different switches to be controlled
+ together.
+ .
+ Various of the switch vendors have management applications available
+ which should be able to do a similar job, but they're typically not
+ scriptable, or locked to only control their own vendor's
+ equipment. VLANd is designed (and hoped!) to be better. We've found
+ that other network management programs also exist, but either they
+ don't manage VLANs in the way we want or they depend on large
+ frameworks like Openstack.
+ .
+ VLANd is designed to augment Linaro's LAVA hardware and software
+ testing infrastructure, but is hoped also to be useful as a standalone
+ tool.
