I should re-phrase my above statement: I would *love* to have some
iWARP vendors come into Open MPI. :-)

I actually spent a good amount of time talking to NetEffect at SC and
we have a con call setup for next week to discuss exactly these
issues. Even just getting testing resources would be good so that we
can say that OMPI is certified on various iWARP hardware, etc.
I spent a little time talking to Chelsio at SC, but haven't heard
anything back from them yet. Broadcomm is "interested" in Open MPI
but won't make forward-looking statements (I've talked to Kaitlyn
[not sure I spelled that right...] quite a bit).
The whole point of the OMPI project is to get the vendors involved,
so I really do want them to be included. Part of the benefit of
joining a larger MPI project is that you don't have to do all the
work yourself -- quite helpful for all of us who don't want to
shoulder the responsibility for being the sole maintainers for a
huge, complex code base.
Who else should I be talking to in the iWARP community? (I confess
to being fairly unfamiliar with the iWARP community...)
