OK, like this?

Subject: [PATCH] FAQ: Update question about OpenFlow version support.
We've had a lot of questions about this on the mailing lists recently, and
it would be nice to have an authoritative answer to cut and paste.

Q: What versions of OpenFlow does Open vSwitch support?
-A: Open vSwitch supports OpenFlow 1.0. It also includes a number of
- extensions that bring many of the features from later versions of
- OpenFlow. Work is underway to provide support for later versions and
- can be tracked here:
+A: Open vSwitch 1.9 and earlier support only OpenFlow 1.0 (plus
+ extensions that bring in many of the features from later versions
+ of OpenFlow).
+ Open vSwitch versions 1.10 and later will have experimental support
+ for OpenFlow 1.2 and 1.3. On these versions of Open vSwitch, the
+ following command enables OpenFlow 1.0, 1.2, and 1.3 on bridge br0:
+ ovs-vsctl set bridge br0 protocols=openflow10,openflow12,openflow13
+ Support for OpenFlow 1.1 is incomplete enough that it cannot yet be
+ enabled, even experimentally.
+ Support for OpenFlow 1.2 and 1.3 is still incomplete. Work to be
+ done is tracked in OPENFLOW-1.1+ in the Open vSwitch source tree
+ (also via http://openvswitch.org/development/openflow-1-x-plan/).
+ When support for a given OpenFlow version is solidly implemented,
+ Open vSwitch will enable that version by default.
Q: I'm getting "error type 45250 code 0". What's that?
