Open MPI 1.3 transitions
Open MPI 1.3 was realeased on January 19 by the upstream group, and entered Debian unstable the next day. It is not guaranteed to be binary-compatible with the 1.2.* release series. Some applications (in C) appear to run fine, others (in C++) do fall over due to a change.
Upstream recommends a rebuild. Given the relatively small number of packages using Open MPI in Debian, it would be overkill to prepare parallel releases of 1.2 and 1.3.
- Identify all affected packages.
- Contact the release team and the maintainers of affected packages and request binNMUs.
