Re: Bug#88848: octave: Wish octave-mpi was available
Greetings, and thanks for your quick reply!
OK, so I agree, we can go ahead and close this wishlist item. Just
for my own knowledge, though, are the patches so experimental that
incorporating them into the stock distribution would be unwise? One
can test mpi on a single box with the existing mpi packages, and there
is plenty of cluster help on debian-beowulf :-). But I can understand
completely if your load is too great. Thanks for all that you do for
I'm cross-posting this to debian-beowulf to see if anyone would like
this to be packaged, and/or perhaps volunteer? I don't really know
where it would be on the priority list for a Debian beowulf system.
