I'm not involved with the upstream development. My employer, System
Fabric Works, releases a version of IFS for Debian, but it is
developed in a similar fashion to how Debian package maintenance is
done. Agreed, I did not file an ITP.

Great! I pushed a few opa-ff packaging updates to debian/master and
patches to patch-queue/debian/master. I'm not sure how you were able
to build opa-ff, as it specified the unknown package ibacm-dev. I'm
filing a bug against ibacm to get ibacm-dev created.

Regarding IFS-related ITPs, I think we need hfi1-diagtools-sw for
managing the HFI eprom and the OPA functionality will be complete.
Thoughts on:

* opaconfig - I don't believe this is needed. It's a helper script for
install and config. dpkg should be handling all of the installation
and automated configuration.

* opa-scripts - I don't believe this is needed. rdma-core is now
handling initialization of the RDMA stack.
