Hi everybody,

OFED 3.18 was released around mid-July[1] and I worked in updating most of
the packages in Debian the following week to the release. However, not all
of the packages are yet in the archive or will be.
If you want to help with the packaging, specially with the missing packages,
take a look to the git repositories at [2] and join the alioth group.
If you're  not a DD or DM, I'll be happy to sponsor the packages!

Updated packages in Debian
dapl         2.1.5
ibacm         1.0.9
ibsim         0.6
ibutils     1.5.7-0.2.gbd7e502 (as 1.5.7-3)
infiniband-diags     1.6.5
libcxgb3     1.3.1
libibcm     1.0.5
libibmad     1.3.12
libibverbs     1.1.8
libipathverbs     1.3
libmlx4     1.0.6
libmlx5     1.0.2
libmthca     1.0.6
libnes         1.1.4
librdmacm     1.0.21
mstflint     4.0.1-1.43.g97d7275 (as 4.0.1+1.43.g97d7275)
opensm         3.3.19
perftest     3.0-0.9.g214990b
qlvnictools     0.0.1-0.1.ge27eef7 (as 0.0.1-4)

All these packages are up-to-date in the archive for the version
in OFED 3.1.8. Some of them got updates afterwards.
The update of srptools to 1.0.3 is still missing, it needs
a systemd file and I didn't get the time before DebConf to write it.

New packages in OFED 3.18
fabtests     1.0.0-1
ibpd         1.0.0-2
libfabric     1.0.0-1
libibscif     1.0.0-1
libiwpm     1.0.2-1

None of these packages are in the Debian archive.
Roland Fehrenbacher mailed me directly about packaging libfabric and fabtests 
a few weeks ago. Roland, are you working on this? For information,
libfabric needs packaging infinipath-psm first.

Packages that are not in the Debian archive

compat-rdma     3.18-1.g71b57cc
infinipath-psm     3.3-2_g6f42cdb_open
libcxgb4     1.3.5-1
libehca     1.2.2-0.1.g69e1a88
libocrdma     1.0.5-1
ofed-docs     3.18-1.g59d8417
ofed-scripts     3.18-1.g93d3112
qperf         0.4.9-1
rds-tools     2.0.4-1

compat-rdma, infinipath-psm, libcxgb4, libehca and libocrdma have never 
been packaged for Debian.
qperf and rds-tools were before in the Debian archive, but I filed for their
removal. You can find their packaging in git.
Packaging ofed-docs and ofed-scripts for Debian does not seem very useful.
