If you want to do #354, i.e., to remove the MPI_T_... constants
from the Fortran interfaces (mpif.h, mpi module, mpi_f08 module),
then you should do it now and rename your ticket title to
MPI-3.0 Errata: MPI_T constants erroneously listed for Fortran
You should put it on the agenda and vote on it in the next meeting.
Keep in mind:
- If you want to have these constants also for Fortran-written wrappers
available, you can re-introduce them in MPI-next,
but then also with the appropriate interface for the MPI_T_... handles.
- If you do not have both, then it is only very partially useful
in Fortran-written profiling layers.
- Therefore, i expect that it is only a copy&paste bug that
MPI-3.0 defines the constants also for Fortran.
- You should do it as fast as possible as MPI-3.0 errata,
because a removal in MPI-next would be a non-backward-compatible
