Thanks for that. Given that we need to order these (presented alphabetically)
LAM ? MPICH ? Open MPI
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" ?
