I see you actually reverted my commit (somehow I didn't get an email about that -- I only noticed it by chance today on GitHub.com). 1. You reverted an actual grammar fix: "support" -> "supported". 2. I don't think that "likely" is bad to have. Like I said above, the test itself is just a switch/case test based on a hard-coded list of OSs. The test does not *actually* test to see if the system supports binding. So weakening the language a little to say "likely" is not necessarily a bad thing. Sure, in some (most? all?) cases, the likelihood of not supporting binding will be 100%. But a) that doesn't mean the use of "likely" is incorrect, and b) allows for the possibility of not supporting binding to be less than 100% in some future / unpredicted system. "Always" (and words/phrasing like it) is a very, very strong word. It should be avoided when possible. -- Jeff Squyres jsquy...@cisco.com _______________________________________________ hwloc-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://rfd.newmexicoconsortium.org/mailman/listinfo/hwloc-devel
