Thanks for that. Given that we need to order these (presented alphabetically)


I suggest the following:

i)   LAM is last as upstream stopped and suggested moving to Open MPI; it is
however widely available and stable so we want to keep (if someone maintains it)

ii)  MPICH is second per Adam's vote (== MPICH maintainer)

iii) Open MPI becomes the default as it is very actively maintained upstream,
modular, fairly advanced, etc ppp

so we get
        Open MPI > MPICH > LAM

in reverse alphabetical order. How cute :)  

Manuel, what were your thoughts against Open MPI as the default?  Lack of
availability on all arches?  "Newness" ?


Three out of two people have difficulties with fractions.
