Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Open-MPI 1.3 and environment variables

That was never an envar for public use, but rather one that was used
internal to OMPI and therefore subject to change (which it did). There
are a number of such variables in the system - we try to indicate this
by not exposing them via ompi_info. Of course, you can independently
discover them with a printenv, but we would not recommend relying on
them.

The list of reliable envars is provided here:

Note that this begins with 1.3 and does not apply to any prior releases.
