Hi Jeff,

I saw the traffic increase, but couldn't explain to myself why 1.3 would
generate more activity, other than the initial download page only has
1.3 and you need to hunt for anything else, which are tagged negatively
(ie. old, older, ancient). Your stats were of great interest,
particularly, for
which version OpenMPI developers may be utilizing in their projects.
