Hi Mark, I have a question here after reading your patch for release
documentation. If OVN is released more frequently than OVS, then there is a
chance that even developers make sure the related OVS change is merged
before OVN change, the next OVN release still can't compile with the latest
released OVS. It would only compile with the OVS master which is not
released yet. Is this a problem?

Thanks,
Han
