In an earlier blog entry, I pointed readers to the new UVMWorld.org site. I’d like to do this again in order to highlight two recently added items that will be of interest to the UVM community.
The first is an entry by Tom Alsop (co-chair of the VIP-TSC) indicating how to report bugs and errors in UVM. This has been viewed over 100 times in the week since it was posted, but it deserves an even wider audience.
The UVM 1.0 EA was released to allow users to try out UVM in their environments, to see what works well, what could use improvements and to catch bugs that may have slipped through the VIP-TSC vetting process. Of course, catching bugs in this release will not be very effective unless there is a defined process for reporting them to the UVM development team. Tom’s post specifies that process in good detail.
The other item of interest on UVMWorld.org is an FAQ– questions that have been frequently asked about the site, and answers to those questions. http://www.uvmworld.org/blog/ I invite you to take a look at these Q&A’s. If other questions occur to you, please feel free to post them as comments either on the UVMWorld site or as comments to this article.
