Hi Doug, list

There has been some discussion of these events
in the Rocks mailing list.
SGE (now christianized Open Grid Scheduler, SGO ?)
is part of the Rocks standard distribution.

See these threads:

Exactly one year ago there was some apprehension that this would happen
to Torque, but Cluster Resources / Adaptive Computing
seems to have kept it open.

See these threads on the Torque and Maui user lists:
