Hi all,


We will be starting tomorrow afternoon (local time) with our MPI Forum RC Meeting. The core will be the reading of the changes made to all chapters, as well as the creation of a list of all outstanding issues.


For this, we are still missing a few reviews of the MPI standard – the procedure is laid out below in a previous email by Wesley. If you haven’t had the chance to do this, yet, please complete your section as soon as possible, so that we can get a complete overview. If you would like to volunteer for an open section, please let us know as well.


Also, just a reminder for all chapter committee chairs: please let us know if you won’t be reading your chapter diffs who from your committee you have designated to do so.


Thanks and see you tomorrow (in Bristol or online),





Prof. Dr. Martin Schulz, Chair of Computer Architecture and Parallel Systems

Department of Informatics, TU-Munich, Boltzmannstraße 3, D-85748 Garching

Member of the Board of Directors at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ)

Subject: Re: Action Required -- MPI 4.1 RC Review


Hi folks, 


I’m sorry that I left out the detail about the page numbers. A couple of you have already asked about this.


The document essentially has two sets of page numbers. The first is the one that your PDF reader will likely give and starts at 1. The second is what is printed in the document and starts at i (lowercase “eye”).


The original numbers in the sheet were the first set, but I’ve now added another set of columns with the second as well. So you can hopefully decipher which ones are assigned to you from that.


When you fill out the form with your response, please use the first set of numbers.

Hi all,


Thanks to each of you for being an active participant in the MPI Forum this year. As we come to the end of the MPI 4.1 ratification process, we have one more ask for each of you who have been most involved.


As we discussed during the July 2023 meeting now is the time that we will collectively review the MPI 4.1 RC Document before we go through the final steps for ratification. Each of you who have been active participants over the last year have been assigned a chunk of the document (each chunk is 30 pages). Your assignments can be found on this Google Sheet:




You can find the document itself here:




As you are reviewing, these are the guidelines for things you should be looking for:


1. Formatting and whitespace problems

2. Spelling errors or other typos

3. Logical inconsistencies in the overall document

4. Problems with the way approved changes were applied


You are welcome to note any other issues you see as well.


As you finish your review, please use this form (https://forms.gle/93hXANvVkp3MhrCD9) to provide your feedback. I’ll be able to triage issues from there. If you have no notes, please still fill out that form and mention that so we know each chunk has been covered. These reviews must be completed by September 8th (there are no review deadline extensions 😀) so we can discuss them at the meeting the following week. If you cannot complete your assignment by then, please let Martin and I know as soon as possible so we can try to find someone else who is willing to take over your section. If you are willing to look through an extra section, please let us know that too so we can line up extra reviewers just in case.


If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us for clarification.
