PTP/photran/rsync remote projects
One item that has been discussed several times at NCSA/Blue Waters meetings is the desire to have Eclipse support for a new type of C/C++/Fortran project, which we're calling a "rsync-style remote project." In this type of project, the code is stored and edited locally, e.g., on a user's laptop. When it is time to build, however, the code is copied (rsync'd) to a remote machine (e.g., a cluster) and compiled there. The user then runs and debugs the executable on the remote machine.
Matt Fotzler (UIUC) will be prototyping support for rsync-style remote projects in Photran. The final code will be contributed as Bug 313194; this wiki page has been set up to track requirements/issues in the interim.
