Any objections to last summary?

  • no Discussion

Kathy provided an update.

  • We had to respin for last night
  • Have build respun already

Regarding build transfer, IBM suggested that we only switch to new way for 4.6 and not for

  • Chris noted that Intel plans to decommission the build systems after transfer is done so we cant keep it this way forever.
  • IBM noted that this is really for current milestones (e.g., thru end of May or June)

Chris to find from Yi on whether this is okay for

  • IBM thinks it will probably mean 1-2 more respins
