OFED Jan-07, 2008 meeting summary on readiness toward RC2

1. Release status:
   * In general there are no major issues - testing continue at all
   * There is a wide coverage of platform and OSes
2. Tasks that should be completed for RC2:
   *	XRC - enhanced API - will be ready by next week
   *	IPoIB performance improvements for small messages - at least
some of the changes will be integrated
   *	Open MPI 1.2.5-rc2 - will be ready by next week
   *	Qlogic new driver - done

3. Agree on new schedule for the release:
   *	RC2: Jan 15, 2008
   *	RC3: Jan 29, 2008
   *	RC4: Feb 12, 2008
   *	Release: Feb 19, 2008 

If we will see that RC3 is stable enough we will try to pull-in
And in any case we do not want to delay the release any more
