Minutes

  1. Overall project, releases, etc.
    • Next builds, releases
      • 6.0 Juno - PTP 6.0.0 released June 27; 6.0.1 June 29; 6.0.2 planned for Juno SR1 on 6/28; last build for us would be RC4+2 on 9/18
      • 9/6 build is ready now, no changes so far. Next week is RC4; SR1 GA is 9/28. Announce PTP 6.0.2 next week? Prior to SR1, no need to wait.
      • We could still use some more doc updates, esp. to new Res Mgrs since Juno, and retooled into launch config dialog.
      • We will branch the repo after SR1. ptp_6_0 branch and master will be for Kepler release.
        • To commit to both:
          1. commit to ptp_6_0 branch
          2. merge with master
        • To commit to ptp_6_0 only
          1. commit to ptp_6_0 branch
          2. merge with master
          3. reverse the commit
        • To commit to master only
          1. just commit to master
        • Greg has been removing some legacy code, in private branch. Will commit to master after ptp_6_0 branch. Cleaning up and simplifying code will make it easier for people to understand the code base. This reduces the size of the code base too.
      • Kepler M2+3- Oct 10 - we moved to +3 build day. M1 build was not successful since several pre-req projects didn't opt in to aggregation. M2 should be better.
    • Download stats
      • 43,389 for Juno Parallel package since Juno release June 27 (as of today 9/11 before the meeting.)
      • Compare with 64,860 total Indigo SR2 (PTP 5.0.x)
      • See bottom of page for more details
  2. Status Reports
    • ETFw - Wyatt - making changes for UI in time for SC tutorial. Kevin @U.Oregon reports that BG/Q display is ok; BG/P layout seems broken. Oregon seems best group to look at this.
    • Testing! Need folks to test Parallel package. Everyone try at least to submit a job with your favorite Res Mgr. Greg recently implemented some documented but unimplemented features in JAXB.
    • Greg is working on RCP app for stand-along Monitor-only. Will commit and discuss at next week's meeting. Add to Agenda: Stand-alone RCP App for monitoring
    • Chris Navarro - finishing up another project then 100% on PTP including ETFW+JAXB
    • Sync Projects - John Eblen - Greg asked about when to use path vs. RegExp, requests file wildcard matching, one-way sync. Bugs opened:
  3. Education and Outreach
    • User/Developer Meeting - Sept 18-20, Chicago
    • Monthly PTP User call - Wed Sept 26 - see PTP User Meetings
      • Dave Alexander from Tech-X Corporation - They have a NASA SBIR (small business innovation research) grant to add several things to Photran, including a GUI for automated testing using pFUnit (a Fortran unit testing framework developed at NASA). He will demo the pFUnit Eclipse Integration.
    • Tutorials
    • BOFs
      • SC12 BOF (accepted) - TUESDAY Nov. 13 5:30-7:30 (Note move from original on Thursday... may move again, stay tuned)
