What is the plan for merging with future MPICH updates? I've dealt with
keeping full copies of the linux kernel in various version control
systems, and merging with upstream always turns into a huge headache.
Of course, if there aren't going to be any more MPICH-1 updates, then
this is really no big deal.
My first suggestion is to remove the java .jar and configure files.
There is also probably a lot of other stuff that really doesn't need to
be there as well. Do we really need to keep windows specific code in the
(currently linux-only) OpenIB project svn tree?
