Some cool (IMHO) stuff:

E.g., search on "mca_btl_sm_send" and get here:

But I like embedding such links in notes I have so that I can quickly
see the source for something I wrote a note about. So, you can have
"symbolic" links like this (replace line number by function name):
Or, refer to a specific rev
(You can't seem to use a #funcname when you specify a rev.)

Anyhow, you can click in the window to see the definition of something.
E.g., at this URL, we see source code that calls MCA_BTL_SM_FIFO_WRITE.
We click on it and get taken to the definition of that macro. (This has
limited utility in Open MPI, where so many functions are dynamically
defined at run time. Sigh.)

Anyhow, much more functional and faster than the trac source browser, IMHO.
