Please consider joining the weekly Einstein Toolkit phone call at
10 am US central time on Mondays. As usual, you can find instructions
how to join on the following web site:


I short: the number is (+1) 225-578-4942 or (+1) 866-573-0359 and
         the conference id is 118682#.

The main topic will be the organization of the next ET release. In
particular, this means we will discuss:

- Release-relevant tickets (11) [1]
- CCZ4 formalism
- depreciate old library mechanism within Cactus
- Schedule:
  - soft freeze date of May 14th
    - no additions (thorns ect.), major changes, new features
  - hard freeze date of May 21th
    - only 'important' bug fixes or documentation improvements
                ^--> to be decided by two maintainers
  - release date of May 28th.
Not necessarily connected to the release:

- Bug reports: quite a lot happened during last week: 40 issue were opened or
  changed and are still open, and 28 tickets could be closed. Some of them
  - The ET trac has now an "reviewed ok" state for tickets with
    solutions which have been reviewed, but are not yet committed.
  - Problems with LSUs svn server (LSUThorns) have been resolved
  - several external libraries received problem fixes
  - The "Conformal Covariant Z4" formulation was implemented in
    McLachlan, but the new thorns have not been made part of the ET - to
    be discussed.
  - Cactus requirements are now handled recursively.
  - Several BSSN_MoL tests got updated for McLachlan
  - Several simfactory host profiles received updates
  - AEILocalInterp is now parallelized via OpenMP

After this, we received a request to discuss the current status of the
ET MHD paper, so after everything else has been discussed people
interested in this topic can just stay on the call.

As usual, feel free to add to this agenda.

Frank Loeffler
