[gmx-users] martini issues

Dear Ming,

There is nothing to fix. The first note is a simple reminder that
cutoff-scheme is deprecated. The second warning is what it is, a warning.
The [ atomtypes ] in the martini ff do not specify the radii. However there
are [ nonbond_params ] for the W atomtype, i.e. P4. The radius is
implicitly included in these c6 and c12 parameters. This mismatch between [
atomtypes ] and [ nonbond_params ] is what is raising the warning, but
there's nothing to worry about. It's just how the ff was implemented.

The ff with suffix 'p' is for use with the polarizable water model, if I'm
not mistaken.

To end, these are my 50 cents on the subject. I may be wrong, which would
not be the first time :) Tsjerk will have the definite answer since he's
directly involved in the project.

Best regards,
