[ovs-discuss] Another ovs-vsctl Question

Sorry to be posting so many of these really simple questions to the list, but the ovsdb stuff is a little difficult to figure out how to use, and I'm struggling with even the simplest of tasks.  So, a couple of questions:

1) What's the best way to go about creating a port mirror using ovs-vsctl with ovsdb?
2) Is there any updated documentation, or plans to update documentation, with examples or further information on how to accomplish these tasks?  Back in the pre-OVSDB days, the ovs-vsctl and ovs-vswitchd.conf man pages had pretty thorough information on tasks like sFlow/NetFlow configuration, Virtual/Internal ports, and port mirroring.  Apparently those examples have not yet been ported over to OVSDB commands.  I'm happy to help by adding these things to man pages, I just need to figure out how to do them, myself.
