This page is for developers
who want to work on the internals of Open MPI itself.
If you are a
general user or system administrator looking to simply download
and install Open MPI, please
Open MPI provides a official mirror of its entire public Subversion
tree (including all tags and branches) in a Mercurial
repository. It is updated at least once an hour. The mirror is "one-way" --
pushing upstream is disallowed. This repository is mainly for third
parties who want to fork Open MPI but want a convenient mechanism to
stay up-to-date with Open MPI's development.
If you are a general Open MPI developer and simply want to use
Mercurial instead of Subversion, see this wiki page for instructions on how to use Mercurial to
push and pull from the main Subversion repository.
- First, you will need a Mercurial client. We recommend getting the
latest version available. If you do not have the command

- Open MPI has a deprecated
Mercurial SVN mirror located here:

mirror. This entire mirror will disappear
at some point in the future; anyone still using it is strongly
encouraged to switch to the Bitbucket mirror..
- Use the above URL with the "hg clone" command to clone the
repository. For example (as of August, 2012):
shell$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/ompiteam/ompi-svn-mirror

Note that Mercurial is natively capable of using many forms of web
proxies. If your network setup requires the user of a web proxy,
