Thanks for sending Paul.

I am not sure I understand why you suggest that the verbs API is not something that fit the needs of applications. The API was created with the RDMA network architecture to meet the needs of applications and it is proven in many systems installations, and it supports both InfiniBand and Ethernet. OFI is yet to be proved on a single system.

As long as OFA supports the development of OFI and OFV, I think that we need to be careful not to have negative view on neither  of them. If you want to focus on OFI that is fine, but there is no need to say it is the better option. The opposite can also be said.
