Confusion reigns !!  :)

Probably my fault.
I sent a separate email to David Brean - at the request of the XWG - to insure that Oracle was aware that ibutils will be deprecated and removed.
Somehow that got translated to infiniband-diags.

To be clear:
Infiniband-diags >is< maintained by Ira Weiny and exists on github.
ibutils is an old set of tools not updated since 2015/16 timeframe - and no one is supporting it currently.
ibutils2 is provided by Mellanox via MlnxOFED and is supported, although slightly different.
There was concern that these tools were proprietary, however, my last download of MlnxOFED >does< include the source for these tools.

The maintainers file is not formatted correctly

Also the gitweb page has some repos which are obsoleted.  Libibmad and
infiniband-diags for example…

Not sure how best to point people at github for those.

To OFA, should OFA seek a replacement maintainer for infiniband-diags
that already exists on github?

Is it infiniband-diags that's not maintained, or are you thinking of our
recent discussions about ibutils?
