openvswitch-brcompat: Open vSwitch bridge compatibility support

 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, 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-brcompat provides a way for applications that use the
 Linux bridge to gradually migrate to Open vSwitch. Programs that
 ordinarily control the Linux bridge module, such as "brctl", instead
 control the Open vSwitch kernel-based switch.
 .
 Once this package is installed, adding BRCOMPAT=yes in
 /etc/default/openvswitch-switch enables bridge compatibility.

openvswitch-common: Open vSwitch common components

 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, 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-common provides components required by both openvswitch-switch
 and openvswitch-controller.

openvswitch-controller: Open vSwitch controller implementation

 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, 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.
 .
 The Open vSwitch controller enables OpenFlow switches that connect to it
 to act as MAC-learning Ethernet switches.

openvswitch-datapath-dkms: Open vSwitch datapath module source - DKMS version

 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, 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.
 .
 This package provides the Open vSwitch datapath module source code
 that is needed by openvswitch-switch. DKMS can built the kernel
 module from it.

openvswitch-datapath-source: Open vSwitch datapath module source - module-assistant version

 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, 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.
 .
 This package provides the Open vSwitch datapath module source code
 that is needed by openvswitch-switch. The kernel module can be built
 from it using module-assistant or make-kpkg. README.Debian in this
 package provides further instructions.

openvswitch-dbg: Debug symbols for Open vSwitch packages

 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, 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.
 .
 This package contains the debug symbols for all the other openvswitch-*
 packages. Install it to debug one of them or to examine a core dump
 produced by one of them.

openvswitch-ipsec: Open vSwitch GRE-over-IPsec support

 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, 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.
 .
 The ovs-monitor-ipsec script provides support for encrypting GRE
 tunnels with IPsec.

openvswitch-pki: Open vSwitch public key infrastructure dependency package

 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, 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-pki provides PKI (public key infrastructure) support for
 Open vSwitch switches and controllers, reducing the risk of
 man-in-the-middle attacks on the Open vSwitch network infrastructure.

openvswitch-switch: Open vSwitch switch implementations

 Open vSwitch is a production quality, multilayer, software-based, Ethernet

 servers similar to VMware's vNetwork distributed vswitch or Cisco's Nexus
 1000V.
 .
 This package is a GUI tool for monitoring and troubleshooting local
 or remote Open vSwitch installations. It presents GUI tables that
 graphically represent an Open vSwitch kernel flow table (similar to
 "ovs-dpctl dump-flows") and Open vSwitch database contents (similar
 to "ovs-vsctl list <table>").

 Open vSwitch is a production quality, multilayer, software-based, Ethernet
 virtual switch. It is designed to enable massive network automation through
