Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] 1.7.4 status update

Hi Ralph:
In my opinion, we still try to get to a stable 1.7.4. I think we can just keep the bar high (as you said in the meeting) about what types of fixes need to get into 1.7.4. I have been telling folks 1.7.4 would be ready "really soon" so the idea of folding in 1.7.5 CMRs and delaying it is less desirable to me.

Can you remind me again about why the 1.8.0 by mid-March is a requirement?
