Comment 1 Ihar Hrachyshka 2017-07-26 12:20:49 EDT
My understanding is that all the relevant neutron patches are merged.
Comment 2 Ihar Hrachyshka 2017-07-26 12:23:23 EDT
Sorry, no OSP build yet that would include the patch.
Comment 5 Assaf Muller 2017-11-30 17:09:33 EST
We're treating this as an upstream / partner patch, not an in-house RFE. We will not perform in-house testing for OSP 12, so I'm removing the RFE keyword.
