Just a couple of additional thoughts. First off, when
Open MPI officially goes gold, I would suggest one of
the developers puts up a listing on Freshmeat, as
there are a lot of academics using that to track
projects these days.
Secondly, it's great that Open MPI is going to use a
CPAN-like archive - the projects I know of that do
this are Perl, Python and TeX, and I use all three
extensively. The main problem with such archives is
that they tend not to be that well known and it can be
hard to track updates on them. Perhaps it might be
worth using RSS as a notification service for your
COMAN (Comprehensive Open MPI Archive Network)
Third, although there'll likely be some source changes
between now and the beta, the configure/make options
are presumably pretty stable, so it would be easy for
me to use the "accident" to draw up a suggested .spec
file for you, so you (or users) can roll RPMs from the
tarball, if you'd be interested.
