Hi Dan,

This is a question that should've gone to the OpenStack mailing list [0]
Let me reply inline anyways.

Please, check the latest doc [1] which should be more updated.

Thanks for reporting those, I just sent a patch [2] to fix the broken links
as we just moved the docs to docs.ovn.org (today actually).

The one in stable/train branch (which you linked) is also broken and needs
to be addressed. If you want to fix it you can always send a patch [3] to
networking-ovn on the stable/train branch [4].

Hope it helps,
