Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] v1.5 status / temporary delegation of RM authority
From: Paul H. Hargrove (PHHargrove_at_[hidden])

I will be "offline" Dec 23 to Jan 2, and thus unable to retest any rc2
appearing in that interval against the several issues I reported.
"My" issues include at least:
+ 2 VT issues (both header related), one on BSD systems only the other
on Solaris10 only
+ the hwloc generated config.h, on non-linux systems only
+ hwloc build, on RH8 only
+ gmake-vs-bmake for asm, on BSD systems only

The generated hwloc config.h can be retested on MacOS or Solaris (and
really only requires examination of the tarball to verify).

I'll go out on a limb and guess that Terry D. or Maurice F. can find
Solaris10 systems to retest the stdbool.h in VT issue.
However, since I doubt that too many of you have BSD or RH8 for testing
I am uncertain if/how we verify fixes for the others.

I think the RH8 hwloc issues are not worth pursing.
However, the VT and bmake/asm problems are all probably worth fixing for

Anybody out there who can volunteer to test an RC2 on a
{Free,Net,Open}BSD system?

I hereby delegate my RM powers to Ralph for the duration (he's working all this week and will generally be around more than me over the holidays). He can do things like approve CMRs per both his discretion and the discussion that I had with him about my intent for v1.5.5 earlier today. Ralph will likely also post a new RC if some/all of the above issues get fixed, just so that we can do another round of testing to see how all of the issues look. 1.5.5 (final) will not be released before Jan 3, 2011.
