Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] patch for building gm btl

  Thanks for the info.
  Jeff and I are working (well Jeff is working anyway) to get MTT setup
on my cluster to do MTT builds against both the GM-1.6.4 and GM-2.0.19
libs I have installed. While there is no current development at Myricom
for GM, there are still folks with older hardware in the field who are
using GM (and in my case will continue to do so until the hardware dies).
  We have only 2 nodes (GM-2.0.19) to run on and Jeff and I have yet to
discuss what tests we will run, but it will probably be a very minimal
set. Once we both have MTT setup and running GM tests, we should
compare configs to avoid overlap (and thus increase coverage).
