As far as how to write a new plugin I'd recommend just looking at how the other plugins work in order to get an idea for what's involved. The quantum admin guide is probably a good place to start for architecture details and best practices: http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-network/admin/content/index.html

Thanks Aaron.

As far as quantum itself is concerned, would you happen to know where I can find these, both these are pointing to dead links. I;m sure someone has a copy :-)

These links seem to have been broken when openstack.org was converted. I don't know where those are now. The admin guide should have all the info in those docs though .

There is some information on writing a plugin here:
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/QuantumDevelopment

As far as the dead links go, I am not sure where those are (one of those was my attachments, but I am not sure how to up-to-date it is anyway).

Can you help with this problem?
