What's the status of soc support? I really want to try building the caravel example
I tried with rc3, by cloning caravel into openlane/design and then trying to run make from the caravel/openlane dir
this fails like this:
which I'm sure is expected as the caravel example must surely require the SOC capabilities of openlane which aren't in rc3 (as I unnderstand it)

well CLOCK_PERIOD is one of the standard variables right?

here's the config.
I imagine DESIGN_IS_PADFRAME is not in yet and maybe it would supress checking for clock
@Ahmed Ghazy any news?

@Matt Venn: We're currently in the process of figuring out how much synthesized memory we can fit into the management area. There is a Makefile under https://github.com/efabless/caravel/tree/release/openlane you could use as a base if you'd like to play around hardening the caravel modules, but you probably can't do much unless the I/O library is released (Hi @Tim 'mithro' Ansell :-)).
