Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Adding error/verbose messages to the TCP BTL
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])

I'm not sure about that -- OPAL_SOS will take some time to propagate
throughout the code base, even after the infrastructure is added to
the trunk.

My point was that it might not be worth it to revamp BTL_ERROR if
OPAL_SOS is coming. But I'd still like to get the new TCP BTL
messages in. :-)
