Hi All,

I have a question about the OVS-Bugtool plugins: 
What's the actual benefit of using bash scripts for calling single line
shell commands:
https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs/blob/master/utilities/bugtool/ovs-bu
gtool-bond-show
https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs/blob/master/utilities/bugtool/ovs-bu
gtool-cfm-show
etc… ?

For example, why not use:
<command label="ovs-appctl-cfm-show" filters="ovs">ovs-appctl
cfm/show</command>
instead of:
<command label="ovs-appctl-cfm-show"
filters="ovs">/usr/share/openvswitch/scripts/ovs-bugtool-cfm-
show</command>
in:
https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs/blob/master/utilities/bugtool/plugin
s/network-status/openvswitch.xml
?

Thank you!
David
