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:


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

In addition to anything that might be brought up at the meeting, the
primary issue at the moment is to get the code ready for a new release
in May, with the planned schedule shown below. At the moment this means

simfactory and a number of utility thorns (external libraries ect), so
it is important to check that building still works 'out of the box' on
all supported machines. The old list of machines is at


Please update this table before the meeting. If you cannot test a
machine with your name next to it, remove your name.

Also, we should think early of a new name for the release. Remaining
candidates from last time are also on the wiki, feel free to add some.
