There's an interesting thread over on the Extreme Linux and Beowulf lists.
I need help and support from the other Debian developers, particularly
any using Debian for clusters. There is talk of reorganising the Extreme
Linux CD to include .tar.gz / .debs / .rpms but to be a minimal drop in
addition to a standard distribution rather than simply a slightly altered
Please, if you're interested, read the threads following on from
Robert Brown's "Rant". I've expressed an interest in helping get .debs
made and running as has Martin Wheeler - see http://www.startext.co.uk/beowulf.
Neither of us are currently running clusters :( but both of us are keen to
see that Debian doesn't get ignored here.
Thanks for your time,
