Roland, I am sorry, that was my wrong guess that based on the maintains change in Open Fabrics, I'm happy to hear that you are still do InfiniBand maintaining.
I think that following Mehdi's suggestion is absolutely the safer way to keep the packages updated.

Sincerely yours,

Hi Roland,

Good to hear from you!

Still, it would be very convenient to have OFED related packages under the same umbrella (no matter who's the main responsible for their maintenance within Debian). Are you in line with this?

We've already prepared the Git repositories and they are ready for use.
