Re: ROCm RFS - workflow and pipeline
I fully understand what you meant and I had the same idea.
rocr-runtime does not have to go through NEW. Let's upload it then,
I'll do an amd64-only upload instead of source upload
(source upload will FTBFS). Since it's targeted at experimental,
whether it migrates or not is not a concern.
