RC1: Jul 25, 09
RC2-RCx: About every 2 weeks as needed
We usually have ~6 RCs
Release: Oct 15, 09
Note: Jeff S. suggests that we drop MPI from the OFED package. We will
discuss this after 1.4.1 release.
3. MPI new memory API
We will have next week a special meeting on this subject. Jeff will
prepare the meeting.
