Re: Task: parallel-* ?


typically, *-dev is used to designate the packages containing the headers
and other stuff to compile things yourself. So, I'll name the first of your
tasks 'parallel-computing-master', or something like that.

We could also make a third task called '-dev' containing all .h and so on.

Thanks, Mt.
