<poke> Just pinging you all to ensure you got this. I need to know if we need to coordinate an official PRRTE release to coincide (and sync) with the release of OMPI v5.0, or if you are okay with just using the embedded PRRTE included with the OMPI v5.0 tarball.
If it helps, PRRTE depends upon hwloc, libevent, and PMIx - none of which are internally embedded.
