You raise a good point, I am currently working on this package and I would love
to see it included in Wheezy if possible. The new upstream release is actually
worse for me than the previous version, so I have quite a bit to do in order to
get things into shape.
If Condor is still reasonably usable without support for cgroups via libcgroup,
I would go that route -- at least in the short term. Several of libcgroup's
problems are fairly complex, I'm doing all that I can given the time that I have
to get things sorted. If anyone has input or would like to contribute, please
do so. I'm more that willing to collaborate.
