Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] progress threads

Jeff -

I was going to look into the ROMIO problems this weekend. I started looking
at them on the train between Portland and Seattle after the Forum (trying to
get async progress to work for some tests of the RMA code), but got too
confused. We're doing requests absolutely incorrectly with ROMIO right now
-- this code is all part of the brokenness. Look for fixes by Monday.

Are there any BTLs we think might possibly work with progress threads right
now? It's really something we should get working (at least to progress long
messages), although I as usual don't have time to do it (and the network
interface I care most about provides it under the covers with CM....).
