Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] New frameworks and contribs in the trunk
From: Graham, Richard L. (rlgraham_at_[hidden])

I have several questions here - since process migration is an open research question,
 and there is more than one way to address the issue -
 - Is this being implemented as a component, so that other approaches can be used ?
 - If so, what sort of component interface is being considered ?
 - What is the impact (or expected impact) on the rest of the system ?

Hmmm...I'm afraid I cannot entirely substantiate your concerns.
Everything compiles just fine for me under both Linux and OSX. True,
the files are not completely instantiated on the trunk at this time,
but they also are not activated on the trunk for precisely that reason.

Can you provide an example of where something isn't building? I can't
find it on any platform available to me.
