Open vSwitch is already available in Clear Linux and installed, for example, with the
network-basic bundle. Is your concern here that this would by default make the service-os
bundle much larger (haven't checked how much larger this would be)?

with GP2.0 in their own tree.... should these bundle changes really move there?
(and weren't they code frozen?)
also you don't need openvswitch for basic single host VM routing stuff.
you need openvswitch if you want cross wire SDN stuffs with multiple tenants
separated from each other
this feels like buying a new car because the gas tank went empty
This is a good point, and while it may make sense to make sure the SOS kernel has all the
bits enabled to run Open vSwitch should one really want to. It may not make sense to have
it by default in the service-os bundle. If this is for the apl-mrb platform specifically,
then software-defined-cockpit may be a better choice.
