I just commited the very last modifications of ROMIO (mpich2-1.3rc1) into bitbucket.

Sweet!

  
The work in this repo consisted in refreshing ROMIO to a newer
version: the one from the very last MPICH2 release (mpich2-1.3b1).
    

Great!  I saw there was another MPICH2 release, and I saw a ROMIO patch or three go by on the MPICH list recently.  Do you expect there to be major differences between what you have and those changes?

I don't have any parallel filesystems to test with, but if someone else in the community could confirm/verify at least one or two of the parallel filesystems supported in ROMIO, I think we should bring this stuff into the trunk soon.

  
Testing:
1. runs fine except one minor error (see the explanation below) on various FS.
2. runs fine with Lustre, but:
   . had to add a small patch in romio/adio/ad_lustre_open.c
    

Did this patch get pushed upstream?

  
======== The minor error ===================
The test error.c fails because OpenMPI does not handle correctly the
"two level" error functions of ROMIO:
  error_code = MPIO_Err_create_code(MPI_SUCCESS, MPIR_ERR_RECOVERABLE,
                                      myname, __LINE__, MPI_ERR_ARG,
                                      "**iobaddisp", 0);
OpenMPI limits its view to MPI_ERR_ARG, but the real error is "**iobaddisp".
    

Do you mean that we should be returning an error string "**iobaddisp" instead of "MPI_ERR_ARG"?
