I'm actually confused by the changelog on the repo:

- r1 ( says "Initial import from branch v1.5"
- r15 ( then says "Update with openmpi-1.4.3"

I thought it was necessary to be in line with a "stable version", not with a snapshot of the trunk.

Did you not use the SVN+HG procedure outlined below, perchance?
No, I did not use this procedure:
I cloned new-romio-for-openmpi, then I deleted all files and subdirectories (excepted .hg and .hgignore)

I got openmpi-1.4.3.tar and untar it in the new-romio-for-openmpi directory.
Then I replace the romio branch by the romio branch from new-romio-for-openmpi

After testing, I committed and pushed it in bitbucket.

I realize now that I have to go back to v1.5.
What is the best way to do it ?
   - Synchro with the trunk?
    - Using openmpi-1.5.tar.gz with the same procedure I used to update with openmpi-1.4.3 ?

I just (re?)noticed that your mercurial tree is based on the 1.4 branch:

Are we targeting the v1.4 series for this?  

I thought we were targeting trunk/v1.5 for the new ROMIO, but perhaps I'm forgetting something...?

I see in your other mail that you pulled something from MPICH2 to make this work.

Does that mean that there's a even-newer version of ROMIO that we should pull in its entirety?  It's a little risky to pull most stuff from one released version of ROMIO and then more stuff from another released version.  Meaning: it's little nicer/safer to say that we have ROMIO from a single released version of MPICH2.  
If possible.  :-)

Is it possible?

Don't get me wrong -- I want the new ROMIO, and I'm sorry you've had to go through so many hoops to get it ready.  :-(  But we should do it the best way we can; we have history/precedent for taking ROMIO from a single source/released version of MPICH[2], and I'd like to maintain that precedent if at all possible.

I've just made a comparison with the very last MPICH2 version (mpich2-1.3.1) and found very little differencies.

I've  reported them into bitbucket. I 've tested with the ROMIO tests and I 've commited them.

So, we now have on bitbucket the version from mpich2-1.3.1 plus the patch for the attribute issue.
