ECP task updates

ECP/VTK-m Project Management


Silvio able to compile with Intel SDK with Kokkos branch (for the CPU). Building with OpenMP offload fails to build. Have contacted Intel to address some issues.

Campaign to compile on new pre-exascale architectures by October.

Rename master branch?

  • Need to wait for some changes to git before the transition (for some automated features of repo).
  • Can we for a time have a master that mirrors the new default?
    • Don't know, but seems possible. Will have to look into that.
