Attached is the list of proposals that are under consideration for key
features that will gate the MPI-3.0 release.  Each organization should
vote for 3 items on this list, by sending a note to Jeff Squyres and
myself, by end of the day Sunday, 5/22/2011.  The top three items will
be the gating items for release 3.0.


- RMA - Significant enhancements to MPI's one-sided communication to  
    incorporate requests from multiple user communities and codification

    continue and function upon failure, due to process failure.
- Fortran bindings - improved Fortran bindings, taking into account
    Fortran 2003 and 2008 features.

- MPI-T - The MPI_T interface, proposed in ticket #266, provides a mechanism for
the MPI implementation to expose a set of variables, each of which represent a
particular property, setting, or performance measurement from within the MPI
implementation. Tools can use this information to help users understand and
optimize the configuration of the MPI library and/or the performance of their

- Neighborhood collectives - scalable sparse collective support

- Const - Make the MPI binding const correct

- MPI Count - Add the mpi count type

- Nonblocking collective I/O - extend nonblocking collective support to
    include MPI-I/O

- Hybrid: Shared memory communicator, Threads, and Endpoint proposals

- Persistence - expand the support for persistent communications, for optimal
