*         Discussion on rdma-core patching process for OFED

?  Decision was made to have Cavium immediately fork rdma-core v15 base with patch (e768239 libqedr: fix inline data copy) while we work with rdma-core maintainers on a longer term solution. Vlad will target this branch for the OFED 4.8-1 RC3 build later this week. Cavium will start the stable branch discussion on rdma-core mailing list.

?  Response from rdma-core mailing, looking for volunteer:

?  "post request to the mailing list with description of why do you need it and the volunteer name to manage it. It should come with file in Documentation with explanation how such stable branches are managed, for how long, if releases are going to be done and then, ..."
