Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Remove Portals support?
From: Paul H. Hargrove (PHHargrove_at_[hidden])

While Cray has sold several Cray XT systems with the portals network
API, they also provide a Cray-supported MPI implementation.
So, the question is how many Cray XT systems choose to deploy OpenMPI
*and* will want to upgrade to OpenMPI 1.7?

SNL probably can't do much in the way of support anymore, so if no one wants them, it might make sense to remove the Portals MTL/BTL for 1.7. Of course, I'll continue supporting all the Portals4 code :).
