Welcome to the software project management service of Max Planck Institute for Meteorology. On this site you will find projects related to atmosphere and ocean modeling, coupling models and data processing.


Please feel free to join our service for downloading code and reporting bugs or placing feature requests.

MPI users should login with firstname.lastname and the corresponding password.

Please note that Redmine's lost password function does not work for MPIM accounts. You'll have to contact the IT services of MPIM in case of lost passwords.

Users from outside the institute may choose to register to take full advantage of our service. Most projects do have access restrictions for some parts of the system.

If you encounter any problems...

First of all, please note that the system uses session cookies (which will be invalidated when you log out) and JavaScript for its user interface, so you may need to enable both.

Some (currently relatively basic) guide lines for project managers and users are available within the user information wiki.

For issues with specific projects, please use the tools available in that project (issue-tracker, forums) or contact the project managers (find them using the projects overview). For technical issues with this site you may also send your question to MPI IT Services (Keep in mind the IT help desk doesn't support project specific topics, e.g CDOs/CDI, PyCMBS or NumGeoCuda).
