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
+ Add a Mellanox PCI vendor ID to the device params file
     Posted 13 hours ago and not yet on trunk
+ Fix show_help_lex.l to avoid undefined behavior (and silence
associated warning from flex)
     Was applied to trunk as r25983
+ Reorder includes to avoid "'struct in_addr' declared inside parameter
list" warnings
     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 1of2:
MIPS 2of2:
If there *is* interest in these, let me know if there is any assistance
I can lend.
