Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Open MPI nightly tarballs suspended / 1.5.5rc3
From: Paul H. Hargrove (PHHargrove_at_[hidden])

Testing 1.5.5rc3 on a "representative sampling" of my many platforms
looks good.
In particular, I've retested various platforms that showed any
significant problems previously and found them to be fixed.

Though minor, I do see that the following patches I've posted are not
applied
+ Add a Mellanox PCI vendor ID to the device params file
http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/devel/2012/02/10615.php
     Posted 13 hours ago and not yet on trunk
+ Fix show_help_lex.l to avoid undefined behavior (and silence
associated warning from flex)
http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/devel/2012/02/10521.php
     Was applied to trunk as r25983
+ Reorder includes to avoid "'struct in_addr' declared inside parameter
list" warnings
http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/devel/2012/02/10484.php
     Was applied to trunk as r25984
Sorry if I've messed an exiting CMR for those last two.
No big deal if these are held back for v1.6, but figured I mention them
in case their exclusion was unintended.

I am assuming there is no interest in the MIPS atomics fixes, or the
PPC64 atomics work-around for an XLC bug.

MIPS 2of2: http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/devel/2012/02/10417.php
PPC64/XLC: http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/devel/2012/02/10603.php
If there *is* interest in these, let me know if there is any assistance
I can lend.
