OVS was an LF project and still is.  OVN was started as a part of it.
Later, we split it off and I believe that we initiated the process to
make it a separate LF project.  I don't know whether we finished that.
If we did, we should add the charter to the OVN repo and the "Linux
Foundation Collaborative Project" banner to the OVN website.  If not, we
should finish it.
