Subject: Re: [MTT users] FW: ALPS modifications for MTT
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])

This patch looks good to me.

I'll commit. If you want to do any more work on MTT, perhaps ORNL can
add you to its "Schedule A" form for the Open MPI Third Party
Contribution form (it's very easy to amend Schedule A -- doesn't
require any authoritative signatures), we could get you an MTT SVN
account and you could commit this stuff directly.
