Deprecation of LAM/MPI?

First of all, I'm not the maintainer of LAM, but since Doug seems to be
busy with other things I took the liberty of taking things into my own

I really would like everything to confer to the MPI guidelines in Fedora
13, but the problem is that so far no-one has volunteered to rework the
LAM/MPI package to conform to the new guidelines [1]. IMHO LAM/MPI could
be safely pulled out from Fedora 13, since it was obsoleted by Open MPI
3 years ago.

Any thoughts? Does someone care deeply enough about LAM to take
ownership and fix the package?
