Thanks @jitkian for the input and initial testing:

# db networks show
eth0=ethernet
    bootproto=none
    device=eth0
    gateway=192.168.122.1
    hwaddr=52:54:00:F5:C0:99
    ipaddr=192.168.122.94
    netmask=255.255.255.0
    onboot=yes

ppp0=xdsl
    AuthType=auto
    Password=test
    name=PPPoE

  • NEEDINFO changed from No to Yes

To add this from interface, we need to:
· create a new role for vlans: pppoe or allow user to create a vlan interface with empty role. Both those roles differs from our guidelines
· modify pppoe interface to consider "pppoe" roled interfaces as free
· modify pppoe interface to list not only ethernet type interface, but also vlan

We can choose between: create a new pppoe role, allow empty role for vlan interfaces, hack interface to use as pppoe device also vlan interfaces with a different role or leave all as now and add documentation for creating a vlan pppoe using command line interface
