Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] RFC: Proposed Fix for mmap Bus Error Due to an Inadequate Amount of Disk Space
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])

Two minor suggestions:

1. Ping Shiqing directly to get the proper Windows support before he disappears.

2. Word wrap the show-help message to 76 columns or so.
