Hi Lisa,
Thanks a lot for providing the updated doc text. Do you want me to add the note to the RHEL 7.6 Beta Release Notes? In that case, could you let me know once the referenced PDF is published?

Or do you want to wait until RHEL 7.6 GA?

Thanks again!

Comment 3 LisaSchupper 2018-09-12 13:36:06 UTC
Hi Lenka, 

The Intel Omni-Path release notes will be ready for GA. 

Thanks and have a nice day!

Comment 4 Lenka Špačková 2018-09-12 13:46:28 UTC
Hi Lisa,
Thank you for the prompt confirmation. We'll wait then.

Have a good day, too!

The Intel Omni-Path release note for RHEL 7.6 is now live.

Thank you!

Comment 6 Lenka Špačková 2018-10-27 06:09:03 UTC

Comment 7 Lenka Špačková 2018-10-30 13:47:57 UTC

Thanks again, Lisa, for cooperation!

Comment 8 Lenka Špačková 2019-08-08 07:13:35 UTC
Hello Lisa,
We have had an OPA-related Release Note in several versions of RHEL 7 Release Notes but nothing was reported by Intel for RHEL 7.7. 

Note that we do not carry-over feature descriptions (only Technology Previews and Deprecated Functionality, which by nature need to be repeated). If you want me to include a similar note in the RHEL 7.7 Release Notes, please open a new documentation Bugzilla against the Release Notes component (the same as this one) and I'll make sure we add the note ASAP.

If no such note is needed this time, please disregard.

Thank you,

Comment 9 LisaSchupper 2019-08-08 12:34:32 UTC
Hi Lenka,

Thank you for being proactive on this. 
I will open a Bugzilla for the new RHEL 7.7 text and link today.

Have a wonderful day!
