I think the community’s concerns are valid. What Mike is articulating is that we already maintain a “1.7 ready” OSHMEM branch internally. I think it should be a simple procedure to do as Brian and Ralph are suggesting and branch off of 1.7 in SVN and apply our patches. We can do this.
Yes, what's important is that 1) we all have a way to review the final merge (which means a public branch) and 2) it's easy for the GK to merge.

I think Brian's point is that it should be a SVN branch.
