Some of you already know this, but I thought I would try to head-off the
usual rumor mill issues as the word spreads (assuming it will). I am taking
a break from the Open MPI world for a few months to work on other things. I
expect to return somewhere in the June time frame, though some uncertainty
exists regarding the exact timing.
I'll still monitor the mailing lists, will listen in now and then to the
weekly telecon, and will try to provide advice upon occasion. From what I've
seen, the RTE looks pretty stable at this point, so I don't anticipate
you'll encounter much trouble - let me know if you do.
I will also continue doing a little work on the OpenRTE area, but that will
be sporadic (mostly on my own time, though some at work as time permits) and
will probably mostly deal with backlogged promises and simple experiments
I've been wanting to do for some time.
So I am specifically *not* vanishing from the project, dropping off the
earth, or any of those other draconian things. I simply need to spend some
neural energy elsewhere for awhile, and that happened to coincide with some
friends in our senior management needing help with a project.
