Changes since 0.6b1:
-----------------------------------------
Add support for runtime (clubmask.conf) choice of resource manager subsystem.
The available options now are ganglia and supermon. Support for ganglia3 will be
added once it is released. Ganglia is now the preferred choice, as it is _much_
more stable.

add --with-supermon to setup.py to turn on compiling of supermon python module.
It is now off by default, as ganglia is the preferred and default RM subsystem.

What is Clubmask
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Clubmask is a resource manager designed to allow Bproc based clusters
enjoy the full scheduling power and configuration of the Maui HPC
Scheduler.

Clubmask uses a modified version of the Supermon resource monitoring
software to gather resource information from the cluster nodes. This
information is combined with job submission data and delivered to the
Maui scheduler. Maui issues job control commands back to Clubmask,
which then starts or stops the job scripts using the Bproc environment.

Clubmask also provides builtin support for a supermon2ganglia translator
that allows a standard Ganlgia  web backend to contact supermon and get
XML data that will disply through the Ganglia web interface.

Clubmask is currently running on around 10 clusters, varying in size
from 8 to 128 nodes, and has been tested up to 5000 jobs.


Notes/warnings on this release:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Before upgrading, please make sure to save your /etc/clubmask/clubmask.conf
file, as it may get overwritten.

To use the resource requests, you must be running the latest snapshot of maui.
