Which is a bad thing for Open Source development. It seems Open MPI is
closed-source development project with an open-source release model.
The FAQ claims the future is in Open Source code, methodology, and
philosophy; so why is the development and testing of Open MPI closed?
Closed-source development doesn't scale. You're missing out on early
bug reports from users with environments and applications different
than yours. You're missing out on outside development help in finding
and fixing bugs.

Please adopt a release-early, release-often strategy.
