To use MTT, you do not need to be a core member of Open MPI. The wiki page you listed simply describes how core Open MPI members use MTT.

If you want to use MTT, it is easiest to first setup the client to do some simple test and output to a text file (vs. submitting results to a server). Get that working first. Then expand the client to run more and more tests (while still outputting results to text files). You can run any tests you want -- there's nothing special about the MPI tests that we use internally to the Open MPI project. You just need to be able to describe them in the MTT client INI file, and specify conditions for passing/failing/skipping.

Once you have all the tests working in the way that you want, you can choose to install an MTT database server if you wish. This will give you web pages like we have at
