Just heard back the following from the ipython gitter: > @dereneaton you can't know how many engines a cluster 'should have', since engines can be added or removed at any time. The only holder of information for "how many engines should I wait for" is the person who called "ipcluster" or "ipengine".
They suggested we do what we're already doing which is to wait with time.sleep
with the CLI we will know how many engines the user launched, but with the API we won't. But, that's ok, the wait command is working pretty well. TLDR; although we can tweak it slightly, there isn't really a better way to do things at this point than what we're already doing.

re ticket #1 : what part of libhdf5-dev do you need? Arent' dev packages mostly just header files?

I don't really know that much about C code. Does that mean it's easy for us to pull this in to avoid the crash we were seeing in the ticket with conda?
