You are probably refering to Torque. I had some difficulties about
their license but finally came to the conclusion that it is actually
DFSG compatible. The respective upload is overdue, I admit.
If there is something you see the need to be discussed, then feel
free to do so.
"Torque" to me is something that I feel comfortable with. It could also
be Sun Grid Engine or something else. If we are successful then we
have learned and documented enough to become fairly flexible with
the batch system to use.
