Hi all,

(Action Item for everyone in bold below)

For those of you who couldn’t attend the last day of last week’s MPI Forum meeting, I’d highly recommend that you want the presentation I gave about the process we’ll be going through over the next few months to ratify MPI 4.0. The video is available here:

https://youtu.be/zX1XneiVTUg?t=2249 <https://youtu.be/zX1XneiVTUg?t=2249> (starts at 37:40)

You can also find the slides here:

As part of the virtual meeting next week, I plan to hold “office hours” to answer any questions people may have about that. I’ll also be going over the details of exactly how some of these pieces will work where I left some gaps in the original presentation (e.g., What will the Git branches look like? How do we make PRs? Where do the issues go?). Everyone who will be helping review the Standard before December should plan to attend (that’s everyone who’s attended 3 meetings this year), chapter committees in particular.

In anticipation of that, each person should go through any issues or pull requests that they’ve opened on GitHub and see if there are any last minute items for MPI 4.0. I made a pass through every PR today and cleaned up quite a few, but there may still be some that need to be added to the agenda. To do this, go find all of the issues where you are either an author or an assignee (you can find how to do that in the attached image) and decide whether it should be for MPI 4.0, MPI 4.1, MPI 5.0, or closed. There are labels for the first three and you can just close it for the last one. As usual, if you have questions, just ask me. If you want it to be in MPI 4.0, please also add it to the MPI 4.0 “project” so we’ll be able to track it.

Please note that anything that is going into MPI 4.0 really needs to be called out in the next few weeks. Bill will be generating the release candidate at the beginning of November and everything needs to be merged before that happens. If something gets missed this month, it will probably have to wait for MPI 4.1.
