>>OK. Do you already use this new stuff somewhere in your setups? 

Not yet. (we are going to migrate all our cluster to bgp-evpn in coming months, but I'm waiting the subnet management, as I have move the gateway ip definition in subnet)

Currently at work, we manage ipam (netbox) /dns (powerdns) for vm creation with some custom scripts + puppet plugged to ipam to generate guestos config.

But when I'll be ready, I'm going to use them with proxmox directly.
It still need work to add ip management on lxc but also qemu.
(I don't use yet cloud-init in production, but I'm currently playing with it,I'm able to reload online config with some udev tricks,...)

Ok, thanks for the information! I'll allocate a few hours next week to give 
initial feedback. 
I already skimmed each iteration of your patches shallowly, nothing made any 
alarm bells ring, so from what I can tell now, it should head in the right 

The features are definitively nice and I think many PVE users would like to have 
them quite a bit.

OK. Do you already use this new stuff somewhere in your setups?
