Some of the repos on the OFA are still used by the EWG to create OFED. DAPL is mostly in maintenance mode and it would be easier to leave it where it is
since moving it would actually require more work. Also, I believe that vlad stages the kernel code in a git tree on the OFA server to allow adding the backports and
create the RPMs and various packages.

I agree that for old git trees that are now maintained elsewhere, we should remove those but not the ones that are still being actively used.

Can you provide a list of the repos still being used for OFED ?

Hal - Can you let me know when your repos have been moved ?

Arlin/Woody - Can you talk about how removing the OFA git site affects the EWG?
Removing it completely would be the optimal goal.
DAPL would have to go somewhere, and I’m not sure if the OFA bugzilla would be affected by this.

  Please see the attached preso.
  It is a list of the repos on the OFA git site.
  The top section are the only repos that look remotely valid.

~tnikolova/{libi40iw, libiwpm, libnes} and ~halr/libibumad are all
superseded by rdma-core.

mstflint is superseded by


Ignoring the clearly EWG/OFED stuff that leaves


Hal: Do you think we should move ibsim and opensm to linux-rdma's github
project? Or someplace else?

I think that linux-rdma github is fine for these repos. ~hal/dump_pr.git should go there too.

No idea what to do with DAPL, if EWG starts a OFA github project then
maybe move it there?

  If we can ultimately move the valid bits to github - we can then
  discontinue a separate git site.

Strongly recommend EWG re-organize their process around github or
