[Mpi-forum] Info Keys Ticket

The discussion on info keys started with a "thread_level" info key in the
hybrid working group, and for better or worse it expanded and stayed within
that WG. I agree that this could be organized better, and hopefully we can
find a good solution at the upcoming meeting.
That being said, you haven't missed much. The technical discussion on info
keys proposals took place primarily at the past few face to face meetings.
We still have lots of great input from those discussions queued up on the
original ticket. I'm sure many Forum members remember the lively
discussions we had about communicator info keys. During those discussions,
we didn't agree on much, but we did reach something resembling consensus on
the wildcards info keys. The working group wanted to move those items to a
proper proposal so that the Forum has the opportunity to include them in
Let's figure out the right forum(s) for discussion on the remaining info
keys and keep them moving along.
