Subject: [OMPI users] MPI-2.2: do you care?
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])

Open MPI users --

I took a little heat at the last the MPI Forum for not having Open MPI be fully complaint with MPI-2.2 yet (OMPI is compliant with MPI-2.1). Specifically, there's still 4 open issues in Open MPI that are necessary for full MPI-2.2 compliance:

https://svn.open-mpi.org/trac/ompi/query?status=accepted&status=assigned&status=new&status=reopened&summary=~MPI-2.2&col=id&col=summary&col=status&col=type&col=priority&col=milestone&col=version&order=priority

We haven't made these items a priority because -- to be blunt -- no one really has been asking for them. No one has come forward and said "I *must* have these features!" (to be fair, they're somewhat obscure features).

Other than not having the obvious "OMPI is MPI-2.2 compliant" checkmark for marketing reasons, is there anyone who *needs* the functionality represented by those still-open tickets?

Thanks for your input.
