    Description

      Description of problem:

          The `subnets` attribute explanation, in the network plugin JSON configuration table - [0] - is confusing; it starts with "The subnet to use for the network across the cluster. When specifying layer2 for the topology, only include the CIDR for the node. For example, 10.100.200.0/24." 
      
      I think the second sentence is very confusing, and could be omitted.
      
      Thus - IMO - it should instead read: "The subnet to use for the network across the cluster."
      
      The rest of the attribute's description is OK.

      Actual results:

          The subnets attribute is poorly explained - especially the part about "only include the CIDR for the node".
