 Include the precise versions of Open vSwitch and Ryu in your bug
 report, plus any other information needed to reproduce the problem.
+Continuous Integration with Travis-CI
+A .travis.yml file is provided to automatically build Open vSwitch with
+various build configurations and run the testsuite using travis-ci.
+Builds will be performed with gcc, sparse and clang with the -Werror
+compiler flag included, therefore the build will fail if a new warning
+has been introduced.
+The CI build is triggered via git push (regardless of the specific
+branch) or pull request against any Open vSwitch GitHub repository that
+is linked to travis-ci.
+Instructions to setup travis-ci for your GitHub repository:
+1. Go to http://travis.ci.org/ and sign in using your GitHub ID.
+2. Go to the "Repositories" tab and enable the ovs repository. You
+   may disable builds for pushes or pull requests.
+3. In order to avoid forks sending build failures to the upstream
+   mailing list, the notification email recipient is encrypted. If you
+   want to receive email notification for build failures, replace the
+   the encrypted string:
+   3.1) Install the travis-ci CLI (Requires ruby >=2.0):
+           gem install travis
+   3.2) In your Open vSwitch repository:
+           travis encrypt mylist at mydomain.org
+   3.3) Add/replace the notifications section in .travis.yml and fill
+        in the secure string as returned by travis encrypt:
+         notifications:
+           email:
+             recipients:
+               - secure: "....."
+   (You may remove/omit the notifications section to fall back to
+    default notification behaviour which is to send an email directly
+    to the author and committer of the failing commit. Note that the
+    email is only sent if the author/committer have commit rights for
+    the particular GitHub repository).
+4. Pushing a commit to the repository which breaks the build or the
+   testsuite will now trigger a email sent to mylist at mydomain.org
