Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Open-MPI on TIPC

I am personally unaware of anyone working TIPC support for Open MPI -- but that doesn't mean it isn't happening.

I took a *brief* look at the TIPC web site -- it is sorta analogous to Open-MX? (i.e., sending raw ethernet frames as opposed to TCP)

We'd love to see a BTL module for TIPC in Open MPI -- are you interested in writing one? I'd be happy to explain how to do so.
