Thanks for the reviews and advice on the qperf packaging.

My latest qperf revisions are pushed to alioth. I did my best to
incorporate the advice from Benjamin and Afif. Hopefully, this ref
passes muster.

I made just a minor tweak-- I ran wrap-and-sort again, but with the `-a`
and `-t` flags. `-a` preserves the one package-name per line like how
you had it before, to be VCS friendly. `-t` uses a trailing comma so
that adding another dependency later on makes a cleaner diff. As the
package maintainer, feel free to use whatever style you like-- there is
wrap-and-sort, cme, and probably other tools. Or use none of them if you

Regarding the maintainer stated as the potentially obsolete "pkg-ofed
team" in d/control, it isn't obvious to me what to use there.
librdmacm still uses pkg-ofed team and I'm not a Debian Maintainer.
Any ideas?

I changed the maintainer field to your name since, as Benjamin stated,
the pkg-ofed team is defunct. You don't need a special status in Debian
to be a package maintainer. Bug reports for this package will go to you
directly (rather than the pkg-ofed mailing list) and whoever subscribes
to the package's tracker.

I was wondering about this. It seems to me that it is better to have
packages team maintained. If pkg-ofed is being deprecated because it
is not only about ofed anymore, then why don't we use debian-hpc as a
contact address and call it the "Debian HPC" team? I am personally
motivated to help in this area of maintenance and would be glad if we
could team up here together.
