  Description     : Grid-enabled implementation of MPI

  MC-MPI is a Grid-enabled implementation of MPI, developed by Hideo
  Saito at the University of Tokyo.  Its main features include the
  following:
  - [Firewall and NAT traversal]: MC-MPI constructs an overlay
    network, allowing nodes behind firewalls and nodes without global
    IP addresses to participate in computations.  There is no need to
    perform maual configuration; MC-MPI automatically probes
    connectivity, selects which connections to establish, and performs
    routing.
  - [Locality-aware connection management]: Establishing too many
    connections, especially wide-area connections, results in many
    problems, including but not limited to the follwing: exhaustion of
    system resources (e.g., file descriptors, memory), high message
    reception overhead, and congestion between clusters during
    all-to-all communication.  Therefore, MC-MPI limits the number of
    connections that are established.  If we assume, for simplicity,
    that n processes are distributed equally among c clusters, then at
    most O(log n) connections are established by each process and at
    most O(n log c) connections are established between clusters.  As
    MC-MPI uses a lazy connect strategy, fewer connections are
    established for applications in which few process pairs
    communicate.  The maximum number of connections allowed can be
    controlled by passing the -beta option to mpirun (see Subsection 3).
  - [Locality-aware rank assignment]: Temporarily disabled in this
    version.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of mcmpi back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting mcmpi, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 528786 ITP: mcmpi -- Grid-enabled implementation of MPI
 owner 528786 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <528786@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
