Woody, Arlin,
Can you check the accuracy of the following page ?
If it is accurate, we can clarify the title to say “Installation of OFED”.
If it is not accurate, we should fix it or remove it.

Arlin says it is also still packaged in the community OFED, but there has not been updates to it in a long time. Not sure if anyone still uses it and I recall at one time Rupert
was complaining that these old tools no longer work with the latest Mellanox H/W and would need some work. I also recall that Mellanox may now have their
own proprietary versions of these, but I am not 100% sure of that.

  Any idea who actually maintains ibutils ?

I can say that ibutils is not being maintained by Mellanox, and we
have no interest in it.

I think it is abandoned.

OK Thanx.

The package is bundled by RedHat and provided as part of the base distro.

So … Doug Ledford - any idea how/why this is still being bundled and distributed ?
The build date is 2016.
Yikes !
