Hi Ben,
we are definitely targeting jessie with mininet (ovs-controller is the only
blocking problem). That said, in the meantime we've been researching whether
mininet can be decoupled from ovs-controller. The current plan would be to push
mininet to jessie with our patch that fallbacks to a pure, non-openflow ovs switches
and have this patch accepted by upstream eventually.
See https://github.com/mininet/mininet/pull/351 for our patch.

Therefore, assuming that our plan will work, we don't strictly need ovs-controller
in jessie. I would welcome it in jessie+1 anyway :).
