2. Testing status and plans
    All participants started the testing, Need to ask Rupert for UNH testing
    Critical bug number: 2367 - with RDMA accept for iWARP, a fix was submitted to the kernel

3. Do we wish to add fixes that were accepted to kernel 3.6?
    Only critical fixes will be included

4. GA schedule
    Target next RC after we have all components are ready - try to have it by end of next week - 16-Aug
    After this we will need 3-4 more weeks for testing

5. Next GA - 3.7
    Seems reasonable from our perspective. 

6. Update from XWG (Woody): In OFA web site there is a new causeway system for sharing documents, votes, etc.
    For now it's not open to all and we do not see a reason for EQG to use it since we work with the mailing list successfully
