Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] OMPI 1.5 twitter notification plugin probably broken by switch to OAUTH
From: Ralph Castain (rhc_at_[hidden])

I'm afraid that triggering a notifier message isn't that simple - instances where notifier is invoked are still rare in the code base.

I'll be adding some to the developer's trunk shortly that will provide a better test (i.e., will trigger on things like failed-to-launch). Will let you know when they are available!
