Porting Activities

ECP task updates

ECP/VTK-m Project Management


We have some issues with floating point exceptions. Usually we have floating point exceptions turned off because frankly we don't care. However, some simulations, which we want to run in situ with, do care a lot about bad floating point math. We should do our best to make sure we don't bring down such a simulation. We probably at some point need to turn on floating point exceptions in one or all dashboards to check for these conditions.

Should think about releasing VTK-m 1.6, 2.0.

Matt working on WarpX highlight.

David Pugmire gave short 10 min presentation to Alpine internal review. It would be good to have him repeat it for VTK-m. - Maybe have Silvio present, too.

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.
