Fantastic !
That was quick.

1.  How do we “advertise” this ?

2.  Sent separate email to you this morning about officially deprecating ibutils - is that something you can do ?

Hi Susan,

I’ve now moved my repos from OFA to github.

One thing I do notice is that the tar balls and md5sums of the releases are different from the original releases in downloads on OFA git server. Don’t know if this is going to be an issue or not for anyone using an existing release. Does this matter ?

I will make announcements on the moves shortly.

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superseded by rdma-core.

mstflint is superseded by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
