I should also add -- I'm *assuming* that you want to start with the
v1.3 series. We're working hard to release this version; it will
deprecate the v1.2 series (v1.2 will be supported for a while, of
course, but our focus will be on v1.3/the future). Much of the setup/
installation is the same between the two, but we've added more/changed
some/deleted some configure switches, etc.

Note, too, that we have a bunch of Trac tickets open on major features
that have changed and need to be documented for v1.3 (of type
"documentation"). See:

https://svn.open-mpi.org/trac/ompi/query?status=assigned&status=new&status=reopened&order=priority&type=documentation

Feel free to post to users/devel to ask questions about how stuff
works if you need more information for any particular feature. Since
we're going for a wiki/web-only format, you should probably also feel
free to hyperlink to any relevant items in the FAQ (vs. replicating
information).

Thanks!
