I've been working on some proof-of-concept code to help flesh out ideas for writing the spec. I'd talked to Maru and he mentioned that he didn't think that the official OVS python library was a good base for this (the one that ryu uses). I don't remember what all of the reasons were, though. It isn't particularly well documented, but that can always be remedied. Does anyone else have any experience with the official OVS python API who could speak to its quality/stability/usefulness? It looked fairly full-featured.

Most of ryu's library is implemented on top of the official OVS python stuff: https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs/tree/master/python/ovs
