[Mpi-forum] Implementation of 2.2 and Thursday MPI session atEuroPVM/MPI

I'm afraid that references to HP-MPI will need to be changed to Platform MPI.   


After 12+ years as an HP product, HP-MPI has been sold to Platform Computing.  I have been part of that effort for the last 10 years.  I will continue to be involved in the MPI Forum and work on HP's internal version of MPI for use in powering other HP product offerings. 

I am told by members of Platform's MPI team that they intend to become active in MPI Forum activity, so someone may be present at SC09.

Since Sun's MPI is based off of Open MPI it is tied to Open MPI's 
schedule for MPI-2.2 support.
