I think it was put on the agenda because our last discussion about MPI-3
was not very conclusive. The only thing that we decided was to postpone
discussions, not for how long though.

However, I fully agree to Rajeev that we have (at least for the Chicago
meeting) much more complex and time critical issues to discuss. Thus, I
propose to devote more meeting time to MPI-2.2.

Especially ticket #33 (will be discussed in a separate mail) seems to be
one of the more important non-trivial (nontrivial?) changes that need
significant discussion at the Forum. 

All the Best,
