In order that Ralph's Call For Volunteers receives as wide an audience as possible, I'm forwarding this message to tech-talk (apologies to the core-talk folks who've already seen it once). If your site expects to need to run EPICS R3.14.9 on HP-UX, you should have someone step up now or we may have to drop HP-UX from the list of architectures officially supported by EPICS.

Hello everyone,

trying to resolve the situation with an outdated C++ compiler crashing
on the EPICS sources, I found out that BESSY doesn't seem to be able to
support testing Base on HP-UX any longer.

We are in the middle of converting to Linux, the software on our few
remaining HP-UX machines has been in frozen state for a while, so asking
for an update of a compiler to test a software that is not going to be
used on that platform
... sounds a lot like asking someone to waste time to be able to waste
more time.

I know we intended to keep HP-UX supported for 3.14 and I know there are
others still using HP machines, so I'm not feeling too happy with this
issue. In any case I would like to keep the HP-UX configuration files
around for a little longer.

Well, I'm throwing the ball high up in the air and start running ....
maybe one of the KEK colleagues (the only remaining HP users as far as I
know) is able to catch it?!
I'm definitely willing to continue helping with ideas and suggestions,
if someone takes over. No question. But without a current system and
compiler I'm not able to compile nor test.

Sorry -
Ralph
