Description Matt Domsch 2004-10-11 21:38:02 UTC
Description of problem:
Thank you for including the OpenIPMI device drivers in FC  by 
virtue of their inclusion in kernel.org.

Please include in the distribution the OpenIPMI userspace libraries, 
version 1.4.3 (experimental but more features and extensively 
tested), such that third party applications such as Dell OpenManage 
may write their applications and link against such libraries.  By 
including the libraries in the distribution, Red Hat has the chance 
to control the release of those libraries for use by ISVs/IHVs. 

If Red Hat chooses not to include the userspace libraries, every 
third-party application that needs to communicate with the OpenIPMI 
device driver will need to provide them themselves, and due to 
concurrency issues regarding multiple IPMI commands being in flight 
at a time, having multiple instances of the userspace libraries is 
not feasible.
