Re: Question about symbol library updates


That's fine, Wayne.  I wrote in the bug that the user could keep using the github files (which have the extra symbols), or if they're willing to use 6.x, they can try the nightlies.

Up until the conversion to the new library file format, I'm pretty sure
the 5.1.x tags are the same between GitHub and GitLab.  Apparently the
PCIe symbol library was added after the 5.1.9 tag and wont be available
until V6 unless users check out the last commit before the libraries
were converted to the V6 file format.  Maybe one of the library devs can
give you a better answer if this is not satisfactory.

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.
