Thanks.  I'll note that in the bug report and close it.

That github page while still functioning is abandoned. It's pointed at master and at the master just before it was converted to the 6.0 library format.

    I received a bug report [1] that points out that the libraries on github contain symbols that are not present in the official gitlab repositories.  The example cited is that [2] has PCIexpress symbols, but [3], in the 5.1.9 tag, does not.  ([3] does have PCIe on master, but that doesn't help the 5.x series.)

    I'm not sure how to respond to the bug report.  We do our builds from the gitlab repos; the files on github are not versioned in a way that would let us use them for building.  Please let me know how to proceed.
