Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] v1.3: libnbc and sm2 coll components

Hi Jeff,
> Should these 2 components be in v1.3?
for LibNBC: no. This was a test to implement blocking colls on top of
non-blocking when the tuned implementation was lacking some ops (e.g.,
Allgather). Tuned now efficiently implements most collectives which
makes the blocking version of LibNBC unnecessary. Non-blocking
collectives are not supported by Open MPI (and were not implemented in
this component).

I (as the author) would vote to delete it from the trunk :).

Best,
  Torsten
