[CentOS-devel] Rebuilding OpenvSwitch and OVN from Fast DataPath in NFV Sig

During the last years OpenVswitch and OVN have become a major dependency
for several projects and SIGs in the CentOS ecosystem, including OpenStack,
oVirt and OpenShift. During this time each project has been following its
own  way with limited coordination (just some opportunistic cross-tagging
between SIGs) and different approaches, rebuilding Fedora builds or FDP
srpms from ftp.redhat.com from time to time in their own tags and repos.

This has led to multiple issues and suboptimal usage resources so I think a
good step ahead would be to use existing NFV SIG [1] as a collaboration
area for all the interested projects to build, test and ship OpenvSwitch
and OVN using public SRPMs from Fast Datapath [2].

What I'm proposing is that the interested people in becoming maintainers
for OVS/OVN in NFV Sig request membership to nfv-sig group [3]. Then, we'll
coordinate to request new tags/buildroots for OVS/OVN and start building
and testing the required releases.

Any thoughts on this proposal?
