  • The charisma manual has also been taken offline (being 4+ years old, and quite out of date). The link needs to be removed from that page.
  • The installation and usage manual has been folded into the main charm++ manual. That link needs to be deleted.
  • We are no longer building ps versions of any manual. All links to ps files need to be deleted.

Ping on this - some younger student should be shown how to get through all this, and ensure that it's documented.

Meanwhile, we have broken links on our webpage. This should be a quick fix for someone who can update and deploy the PPL website.

Documentation on how to do this should be added to the wiki.

It looks like there are in fact people interested in using ParFUM. Orion forwarded me the following, to which I'd like to respond "It's been fixed"

Phil, it looks like the FEM manual isn't getting published here anymore:

Is this intentional, or a side effect of moving to the new server?

Is anybody working on the FEM framework or ParFUM anymore?

Subject: ParFUM framework

Dear Sir,

I am a PhD student at the University of Oslo, Norway, and I am currently working on a new discrete element formulation for simulating coupled fracture and fluid transport.
I came across your ParFUM / FEM framework earlier this year, and I would like to use your grid class because I require the ability to insert/delete individual nodes/elements in parallel.

For the past weeks the link to the FEM manual on the Parallel Programming Laboratory website has been broken.
I was wondering if the framework is still actively maintained and publicly available?

Best regards,

Andreas Hafver

It looks like these broken links are now simply gone. We should point at the existing documentation, for the time being. Ram gave the base URL in the initial report:

Inactive for 7 month; Should be a quick task, please complete. Ideally delegate to another student, so that the art of web update is known to more.
