Right - this was my impression as well.

I know that at least in Ubuntu, they have repos like Cloud-Archive[1]
that are targeted towards OpenStack releases and more recent packages of
libraries. Perhaps we need to investigate if our Ubuntu images at the
gate should be using this repo or something like this to pick up more
recent packaged versions of components like Open vSwitch?
