Task: parallel-* ?
Did we ever decide on Task: assignments to request from the tasksel
maintainers? We used to have task-parallel-computing-dev and
task-parallel-computing-node packages. The new way to do this is to
have those assigned within tasksel in
/usr/share/tasksel/debian-tasks.desc and indicated in by "Task:" fields
in control of each package.
We discussed this a while ago, but I don't see anything in there. Did
someone send in the request? I think we collectively dropped the ball
on this one. If that's the case, here's my proposal:
Description: Parallel Computation: Development
A set of tools for developing parallel applications, typically
for installation on a parallel machine, or the "head node" of
a Beowulf cluster.
Description: Parallel Computation: Node
A set of support tools for parallel applications, typically
needed on the "support nodes" of a Beowulf cluster.
Any thoughts/feedback? If not (within a week or so), I'll submit these
to the tasksel maintainer as a wishlist bug, and when they're in, folk
are free to put these in the Task: field of your (binary) packages.
