Subject: Re: [OMPI users] tester for cygwin openmpi-1.6.3 package
From: Ralph Castain (rhc_at_[hidden])

I think we'd be interested in looking at possibly adding this to the code base. We still need to announce this (and will shortly), but our Windows maintainer has moved on to other pastures. So support for native Windows operations is ending with the 1.6 series, barring someone stepping up to fill the void.

Having a cygwin alternative would let people at least continue to work on the Windows platform, albeit in a different mode. Is this something you are interested in pursuing?
