Ok, so now I see where my slew time violations are. The question that remains is how to fix them. I guess there is something that automatically inserts buffers on high fanout nets. And since this is a clock signal, I also assume CTS has some logic to decide when to place clock buffers (I see 8 clock buffers in series on the path to the point of failure). On top of that I suspect inserted diodes affect slew rate too. To me, this looks like it would need an interative solution where timing analysis is part of the loop. Looking here https://github.com/The-OpenROAD-Project/OpenLane#openlane-architecture however it seems like the STA is outside this loop, which means that timing results are not fed back to subsequent iterations
