WWG meeting times will alternate between 8:00AM and 9:00AM in order to equitable for all.
Some can not make the 8:00AM PST while 9:00AM PST makes for a 'long' day overseas.
WinOF 2.0.2 will be releases ASAP; all required WHQL patches have been applied.
Connected mode IPoIB (NDIS 5.2) under test; Could be starting WHQL tests later this week.
Connected mode IPoIB (NDIS 6.0) work will begin after NDIS 5.2 version has passed major WHQL tests.
The svn source tree will contain separate IPOIB branches for Connected Mode IPoIB for now.
Once both variants (NDIS: 5.2 & 6.0) are working, a src merge/sharing may be examined.
Server 2008 WHQL tests require NDIS 6.0 where server 2003 only supports NDIS 5.2, thus requiring to build separate ipoib driver binaries.
WinOF 2.1 is intended to be WHQL'ed by a hardware vendor. Stan will ping Eric Lantz w.r.t. MS position on a software vendor which supplies hardware drivers variant of WHQL (WSQL?). The WSQL subject was discussed over one year ago, Eric stated he would look into it.
Voltaire WHQL testing of WinOF 2.0.2 is mostly passing for Server 2003 & Server 2008. Anatoly requested a list of Mellanox WHQL exceptions granted by MS; save time by not rediscovering same issues.
Reuven will send a mapping between Mellanox commits 3518 & 3609 and which OpenIB svn commit numbers they correspond to.
