Subject: [Mpi-forum] Proposal to establish the Miscellaneous Working

Hello all,
I'd like to propose a new Miscellaneous working group as a placeholder 
for ideas which don't nicely fit into any of the existing working 
groups.  At the moment, here are the topics I'd like to include in such 
a group.

* Recommending standard names and options for MPI compiler wrappers, in 
the same way the 2.0 makes recommendations about mpiexec
* Assembling test suites for 2.2 and 3.0, perhaps not blessed by the 
standard, but a place where all MPI developers can download and/or 
contribute tests to check their MPI meets the spec (or rather doesn't 
fail to meet the spec for some particular test case)
* Organizing a survey to identify features that users currently use in 
MPI, and for feedback on new features proposed for 3.0
* Recommending standard tools interfaces, like MPIR_PROCDESC

I'm willing to chair this group.  Are there other organizations who 
would support it?
