Subject: Re: [hwloc-devel] Something lighter-weight than XML?

I am preparing a v1.2.2 to flush all pending fixes because v1.3rc2
doesn't seem likely to happen very soon (see message below).

The v1.2.2rc1 tarballs are already being mirror'ed, I'll send the
official announce when the windows build will be ready.
