Well, my preference would be to get a working mpi-defaults-dev in all
architectures as soon as possible, but if you have grounds to believe
openmi will be available on alpha and again on sparc soon, I don’t have
any inconvenient to wait a few days. Let’s do that.

Thanks, and sorry for all the hassle.
