[Mpi-forum] MPIR Specification / Draft for review

Dear MPI forum members,

As part of the activities in the MPI-3 tools working group, John  
DelSignore, with
input and contributions from several WG members, has put together a  
document describing the MPIR process acquisition interface. The draft  
of this document
is attached to this email. There is also a ticket (#228) in the system  
with the same
document attached to it.

This is not intended as a new standard or put up for inclusion in the  
MPI standard itself,
but rather describes the state of the art for this interface how it is  
currently implemented in
(almost?) all MPIs and how it is (supposed to be) used in tools.

Since we (the WG) see this document as an important document  
describing this often
poorly understood interface, we would like to submit this document as  
an official text
sanctioned and distributed by the MPI forum. Based on the discussion  
during the last
forum meeting, such documents should go through a similar reading and  
process as any addition to the standard. We are therefore putting the  
current draft forward
for a reading during the next MPI forum meeting in Stuttgart in two  
weeks. Jeff
Squyres will lead this session.

Best regards,
