NetworkManager TRACE logging

If you open a bug with NetworkManager, there is a high probability that the first thing they will ask you is to provide trace logs from around the time whatever bad behavior you're reporting occurs. This isn't terribly complicated to do, but most people are not familiar with the NetworkManager logging configuration so when asked for trace logs their first response is: How? I'm writing this up so I can just provide a link here when I get that question.

NetworkManager, Open vSwitch, and NMState

Oh my.
-George Takei

Mostly writing this down so Google knows about it the next time I search. On a fresh VM I tried to use NMState to apply a configuration that included OVS bridges and interfaces. This failed with the error libnmstate.error.NmstateDependencyError: Open vSwitch support not properly installed or started. I had installed and started OVS, so I was very confused. I vaguely recalled that there was an integration package for NetworkManager, but a dnf search openvswitch turned up nothing.
