Porting Activities

ECP task updates

ECP/VTK-m Project Management


Matt Larsen has run into an issue with CUDA 11 where it is complaining while compiling DIY that the std:: namespace does not seem to exist. The issue might be related to new CUDA features that support more std objects on devices. As of now, no one has a good solution.

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.
