A recent change request for the DefCore guidelines to “Flag validation
tests as being OS specific[1]" has sparked a larger discussion about
whether DefCore should explictly require running Linux as a compute
capability. The DefCore Committee has prepared a document[2] covering
the issue and possible actions, and is requesting review and comment
from the community, Board[3], and Technical Committee. The DefCore
committee would like to bring this topic for formal discussion to the
next TC meeting on December 8 to get input from TC on this issue.
