The DevStack plugin for Neutron has a way to build a specific OVS
version from source


However there is not a lot of documentation for how it can be used
(which really should be fixed).

I believe it would be something like this in your local.conf:

        enable_plugin neutron https://git.openstack.org/openstack/neutron

I haven't tried it locally, but I think that's the idea.
