Hi all,

Whilst on the topic of CitcomS and m4 files, since circa August 2011
the pyre version of CitcomS (to my knowledge) has not been compilable
from the repo due to a change that was made by the pylith team.
Searching through e-mails, I found the following from a colleague:

 "The m4/cit_python.m4 file has been recently changed by the pylith
team to fix a bug in merlin. The change basically disabled the
automatic download of pythia. If you have an older copies of CitcomS
sitting around, you can copy the old m4/cit_python.m4 to override the
new one and run "reconfigure" again."

Since this time we have therefore used a previous version of the file
by manually copying-and-replacing it when we compile CitcomS from
later repo versions.  I have attached the m4 file that works with
CitcomS to this e-mail for comparison.  I don't know if there is a way
to merge this back to the repo such that citcoms with pyre will
compile without breaking the modification that was necessary to fix
the pylith bug.

I think most groups use the C-version of CitcomS which is probably why
this issue hasn't been reported before.  But maybe with the switch to
git it makes sense to tidy up these outstanding issues, particularly
since new users will be oblivious to the problem.

>> Hello everyone,
>> I recently asked the major active Citcom developers whether they had any changes to commit to the repositories before moving to Git.  I believe most of the changes were put in SVN so I have moved the repositories to Github as per the plan announced several months ago.  Please base further development on the Github repositories instead of SVN, which will be changed to read-only in the coming months.  The new repositories are as follows:
>> https://github.com/geodynamics/citcomcu
>> https://github.com/geodynamics/citcoms
>> https://github.com/geodynamics/hc
>> https://github.com/geodynamics/exchanger
>> If you have any changes you'd still like to commit please contact me and I will help you.  If you would like write access to any repository also contact me.  And of course if you have any other concerns about Git or the transition feel free to contact me anytime.
