Porting Activities

ECP task updates

ECP/VTK-m Project Management


Version 1.6.0-rc1 is released. What do we need to do before the official release? Update Ascent? Update VTK? Others?

A new machine will be deploying a new machine: Polaris. Intended to help science teams be ready for exascale machines.

Wiki will go away at some point (and will definitely move soon). We should avoid using it for anything other than these notes.

Filter redesign requirements:

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.
