Hi OpenvSwitch Devs

I'm seeking some guidance on which version of Open vSwitch to ship
with Ubuntu Raring (13.04).

Ubuntu 12.10 ships 1.4.3 with a fairly heavy set of patches for
compatibility with Linux kernel 3.5 so that the DKMS package remains
usable for tunnelling etc. which Openstack heavily relies on when used
with Quantum+OpenvSwitch.

I'd rather avoid pulling in another set of patches on top of these for
Kernel 3.8 support as I feel that the gap between vanilla 1.4.3 and
what's shipping in Ubuntu is going to be to great making support over
the next 2 years much harder.

Would we be better to re-baseline on the 1.9 branch and ship with a
preview? This looks closest to what we need - I was able to cherry
pick a few fixes from the master branch + update the checks for the
3.8 kernel which produced something usable.

Also is there a timescale around shipping ovs 1.9?

Guidance appreciated.

Cheers

James
