Heads up: Arrgh. It looks like we're going to miss this feature -- unfortunately, no one was able to devote enough time to finish it. :-( Sorry folks. The existing "external" mechanisms will all still work, of course, but our configure script won't "prefer" them, so to speak. So it's not a major deal for this feature to have missed v4.0.0, but it's still a bit of a bummer. -- Jeff Squyres jsquy...@cisco.com _______________________________________________ ompi-packagers mailing list email@example.com https://rfd.newmexicoconsortium.org/mailman/listinfo/ompi-packagers
