Network Service Descriptor support

Registered by dharmendra on 2016-02-15

Tacker takes TOSCA templates as input for VNF manager to orchestrate the VNFs. TOSCA templates constitute both VNF descriptors and network service descriptors. Currently Tacker supports only VNF descriptors.
Network Service Descriptor support will allow Tacker to provide a end-to-end TOSCA based network service.
