Open vSwitch is a production quality, multilayer, software-based,
Ethernet virtual switch. It is designed to enable massive network
automation through programmatic extension, while still supporting
standard management interfaces and protocols (e.g. NetFlow, IPFIX,
sFlow, SPAN, RSPAN, CLI, LACP, 802.1ag). In addition, it is designed
to support distribution across multiple physical servers similar to
VMware's vNetwork distributed vswitch or Cisco's Nexus 1000V.
openvswitch-switch provides the userspace components and utilities for
the Open vSwitch kernel-based switch.

openvswitch (2.10.0+2018.08.28+git.8ca7c82b7d+ds1-12) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add --may-exist in debian/ as per upstream commit. Without it,
networking service may fail (Closes: #926942).

openvswitch (2.10.0+2018.08.28+git.8ca7c82b7d+ds1-11) unstable; urgency=medium
* Removes network.service from openvswitch-switch.service to avoid a
dependency loop in systemd, leading to removal of networking.service.
Also use "ip link set DEVNAME up" instead of ifconfig, and runtime
depend on iproute2.
Thanks to Benjamin Drung for the bug report (Closes: #924562) and to
Jonathan Dupart for the patch as a merge request in Salsa.
