  The python-openvswitch package should build the json C extension

Status in openvswitch package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The C extension wrapping OVS's own json parser is 60x faster than the
  pure-python version currently being used. Profiling shows JSON parsing
  to be the biggest bottleneck using python-openvswitch IDL library.

  setuptools can build the extension as long as the python-dev packages
  are installed and openvswitch-dev is installed. It should be available
  in OVS 2.6+
