Hi Deepak, 

Do you see any issues with running PLDM over NCSI/RBT?  
If the NCSI daemon implements the same in-process callbacks as the MCTP daemon, 
(or if it supports the same D-Bus interface which takes PLDM payload and encapsulate it as NCSI commands)

Also do you have plans on which PLDM functionalities to implement first?
I'm looking at creating a prototype user library for PLDM firmware update would love to collaborate.
