You've mentioned this twice but I've not seen any mention of Platform at
the above link nor at The
closest I've found is that the PDF for GGF7 thanks Platform (among
others). Also, a search of Platform's site for DRMAA yields no results
and none of the press releases clustered around GGF makes any mention of
