Hi Michel,

I funded the original work at Indiana when at the Technical Computing Group at msft. I am no involved anymore, but still on the alias. Just wanted to drop a line and say that I'd be delighted if the code was ported to linux/mac. I don't believe it's being actively improved, but it was a solid piece of work when it came out & I'd hate for it to be abandoned. As such, lmk what I can do to help (sadly I have no resources/$ to spend :(). The people you also might want to ping are Andrew lumsdane (@ Indiana?) & doug gregor (@ apple).

Subject: [MPI.NET] Maintenance updates to MPI.NET and opportunity to move to a GIT repository


I am not sure the mailing list is working (I cannot access the mail archives) but will give it a try.

Colleagues and I are using MPI.NET to calibrate a hydrologic model. We started porting it to run on a Mono/Linux setup, and needed to adjust a few things to make it work. We are using GIT internally to version these adjustments. We'd be of course glad to submit these rather than keep internal.

I see there is a bit of recent activity on the original SVN repository of the project. I'd like to open a discussion about hosting it say on github.

I'd also like to manage references to MPI.NET via NuGet if possible (not sure how the packaging handles platform specific builds, as may be needed for the various MPI native libraries on Linux).

I'd like to get comments/suggestions from the owners of the project legacy.
