Subject: [OMPI docs] Errors in man pages (on the web, anyway), dead wiki

Hi,

Having no way to send a report without subscribing to a mailing list, here I
am...

I just started looking into Open MPI, and so far I found a few errors in the
man pages that are posted on the Open MPI website:

http://www.open-mpi.org/doc/v1.4/man3/MPI.3.php
http://www.open-mpi.org/doc/v1.4/man3/OpenMPI.3.php

Note that MPI does not guarantee that an MPI pro-
       MPI_ERR_BUFFER 1 Invalid buffer pointer.

The note paragraph is truncated.

Then, here:

http://www.open-mpi.org/doc/v1.4/man3/MPI_Init_thread.3.php

This one has the note that is truncated in the above page intact, but has
something else truncated:

MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE If the process is multithreaded, multiple
                               threads may call MPI at once with no
restric-
                               tions.

       modifies, interprets, nor distributes them:

Haven't checked other man pages. Still looking for a "Hello World" tutorial,
to have a taste of Open MPI, see if I like it and if I'd like some more, on
this page: http://www.open-mpi.org/projects/user-docs/ I followed the link
to the wiki: https://svn.open-mpi.org/trac/ompi-user-docs/wiki. But it
says Environment
not found. Ended up on Google, as suggested by the FAQ. Hope I like what I
see :)

Cheers,
