litghostAgreed.  My original plan was to require [IO]BUF and BUFG's explicitly, but this can neatly solve that14:57
mithroLitghost: https://github.com/SymbiFlow/symbiflow-arch-defs/pull/939 - does this help/solve the slack issue?15:57
tpbTitle: Add fast path timing for better hold slack estimation. by litghost · Pull Request #939 · SymbiFlow/symbiflow-arch-defs · GitHub (at github.com)15:57

sf-slack2<kgugala> @mithro can VPR handle separate <blif_model> tags?17:00
sf-slack2<kgugala> or we'll need additional step before feeding the xml to vpr?17:00
mithrokgugala: No but we transform them here -> https://github.com/SymbiFlow/symbiflow-arch-defs/blob/19660cdc6a5997d924425160560177dc6af51724/common/xml/convert-pb_type-attributes.xsl#L7-L1617:01

sf-slack2<kgugala> oh, ok17:01
litghostmithro: Can you explain the attribute -> tag move?  It seems pretty arbitrary, and without value17:08
mithrolitghost: It allows pb_type files to be composed17:09
mithrolitghost: Previously you had to look into the pb_type.xml file and copy the blif_model tag to the pb_type tag you were adding17:09
sf-slack2<frenebo> Hi, I was wondering if any of you have seen this project: https://theopenroadproject.org/ It looks like this project looks somewhat similar to what Symbiflow intends to do for FPGAs.19:31
tpbTitle: OpenROAD Foundations and Realization of Open and Accessible Design (at theopenroadproject.org)19:31
sf-slack2<frenebo> "Prof. Kahng and the OpenROAD team are aiming to develop open-source tools that achieve autonomous, 24-hour layout implementation."19:31
mithrofenebo: Yes, I talk to Prof Kahng every couple of months22:08
mithroWe are likely to collaborate around the SystemVerilog tooling improvement work we are just starting22:09
