  • Chris has done ETFw refactoring, cleaned up storage in variable maps, cleaner implementation. Fix for revert bug will be available soon
  • Carston explained that caching has been added to monitoring's LML_DA. This was presented at September ptp-dev meeting. Multiple clients attached to same remote target can share info from remote system. Shares data in /temp and updates only if that info is too stale.
  • Wyatt has worked on SI2 proposal including src markup. Mostly testing and bug fixes.

    • Apr 24-25 is best date so far. (Beth updated info, would have to leave early Friday). 8 participants including Steve. Wyatt can't attend if the SEA conference tutorial happens (likely). But could call in.
    • Steve will check with Greg and Jay but tentatively confirms these dates.
  • Steve got help with Gerritt problems; Notes that commit amend and reset author fixed his problems. Will update wiki page at
  • Carsten is starting to work with Gerrit, commits to ptp70 and master. Who should we put in as reviewer? What are our guidelines? Can we review our own changes? John E volunteers that if change is complete, need another reviewer. Simple change: can review our own.
  • Beth has done tutorial proposals, build testing, doc bug review and fix, and ptp-user meeting. Will edit and make ptp-user video available (Dave Wootton gave demo of ptp debugger including MPICH enhancement). See
    • Will do XSEDE tutorial proposal soon. Asked for ideas on SC tutorial proposal to enhance acceptance likelihood. Steve asked if remote includes bug were fixed which caused problems. It's Steve will bump with comment, need to work on this.
