The bugs related to the update https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/srptools-0.0.4-16.fc18,rdma-2.0-6.fc18,opensm-3.3.15-3.fc18,libibmad-1.3.9-1.fc18,libibumad-1.3.8-1.fc18 were discussed as a group at the 2012-12-19 NTH review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-bugzappers/2012-12-19/f18final-blocker-review-6.2012-12-19-17.02.log.txt .

We considered them en masse with the general justification that dledford wishes to migrate the services in these packages to systemd prior to the release of Fedora 18, and also to fix a small security bug.

The update policy precludes migrating from sysv to systemd post-release, so if we do not allow this update through the freeze, dledford will be stuck maintaining sysv scripts for the whole of the F18 cycle (and he will have to undo all his migration work in the specs). We considered that these updates relate to a fairly unusual technology - infiniband - and that the typical Infiniband user is likely to be capable of working with Doug to resolve any teething issues that appear: accepting this update is very unlikely to cause any problems in 'typical' use. We also considered that Doug generally knows what he's doing.

Thus we accepted the issue as a whole as NTH, and will mark all the proposed bugs as AcceptedNTH, and pull the update through the freeze.
