Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] RFC: adding OMPIO module and new parallel I/O frameworks to trunk
From: Edgar Gabriel (gabriel_at_[hidden])
Date: 2011-08-25 16:23:52

the code has been committed in r25079. Let us know if there are any
issues, compilation problems etc. I also work on an FAQ entry as has
been suggested on the teleconf last week.
