I'm looking forward to seeing OVS improvements contributed upstream.  I
like the one that I've reviewed already, to add change tracking to the
OVSDB interface to C.  I know that you're planning to upstream other
improvements to OVSDB as well, and I'm looking forward to that.

The way to move forward is to start sending patches.
