Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] RTE node allocation component

Nope - 1.5 is completed and will now be rotated to 1.6 in the near future. The trunk will be branched to create the new 1.7 series, and then released this summer. Your module can go in there, I suspect.

The orte_job_t object does contain the number of procs to be launched prior to the RAS being invoked, but you have to compute it. Each app_context contains that number - so to get it for the job, you cycle across all the app_contexts and add it up.
