Is the goal to propose something to DOE? If so, will such a proposal also include development of the capabilities in addition to all the great things you have discussed?
Todd
57:59
What is the timeline for this activity?
Bharat Medasani
58:06
What are the topics suitable for white paper? Can we submit papers on topics such as specific approaches for a general problem such as mixed language software development?

Would how to package software to make it easier for others to be installed a fair topic? Such as providing RPMs or SRPMs, or using GNU Autoconfig to create configure scripts?
Prentice Bisbal

I would be happy to discuss the difficulties I have as a system admin who has to compile and install many different scientific apps/libraries, and how much more difficulty I have with scientific packages vs. general purpose open-source apps

@Rupak: Applicants for he BSSw Fellowship program must be affiliated with a U.S.-based institution that is able to receive Federal funding. Typically such institutions include U.S. government labs, U.S. universities, and U.S.-based corporations. More info: https://bssw.io/blog_posts/applications-open-for-the-2022-bssw-fellowship-program

In this activity, we discussed emerging applications and library software… This is very exciting. We also need to pay attention to the legacy applications and library software? I think we need help them to “catch-up” or “gracefully retire” in the community….
Todd Gamblin
01:05:38
Could we hear from the DOE PMs on the call about what sort of sustainability effort DOE might be looking to fund after ECP?
Ralph Kube
01:10:53
Is there any mechanism that helps transition research software projects into production-ready releases?
Siva Rajamanickam
01:10:58
When there is a LCF there is a system that gets stood up where all users apply for time, work with facilities, get prioritized for time/support, and get those for an year. What is a similar model for a software center? Is it a software release and we are done or will there be more to the centers?

HPL is in spack :) Probably won’t get you on the top 500 without some configuration though.
Piotr Luszczek

Checkout 6df8616 and the following commits where I added Autotools to HPL: https://bitbucket.org/icl/hpl/commits/6df86161306554ab0d31335df9420328f1641857

I found that some MPI API specifications (discussed 10+ years ago) are very forward looking in retrospect..
