Hello *,

first I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Christian Kauhaus and I am
currently working at the Department of Computer Architecture at the
University of Jena (Germany). Our work group is digging into how to
connect several clusters on a campus.

As part of our research, we'd like to evaluate the use of IPv6 for
multi-cluster coupling. Therefore, we need to run OpenMPI over TCP/IPv6.
Last year during EuroPVM/MPI I already had a short chat with Jeff
Squyres about this, but now we actually do have the time to work on
this.

First we are interested to integrate IPv6 support into the tcp btl. Does
anyone know if there is someone already working on this? If yes, we
would be glad to cooperate. If no, we would start it by ourselves,
although we would need some help from the OpenMPI developer community
regarding OpenMPI / ORTE internals.

So I would really appreciate any pointers, hints or contacts to share.

TIA

  Christian
