I won't be there, either.

Note that the Grenoble workshop draft agenda has an item about batch
queueing systems.  I might see if I can make it there, if it makes

Mark Hymers recently said that he will not have time to maintain
Gridengine anymore.  AIUI, Gridengine has been abondoned as a FLOSS
project by Oracle after the Sun acquisition, but there is a community
fork, http://gridscheduler.sourceforge.net

I will see whether I get/have time to keep maintaining

I don't know about Slurm, AIUI it is rather mature both upstream and in
Debian, but I never used it (the Leibniz Rechenzentrum is migrating from
Gridengine to Slurm at the moment, though, so I might get to use it soon
:) )

Finally, we now have Torque in Debian,

Torque is a PBS/OpenPBS fork, quite mature upstream (and used by lots of
research groups I know), but I am not certain on the Debian status.

So having Condor certainly makes sense, but I think we have several
mature (from a upstream POV) batch queueing systems in Debian now, but
might lack maintenance personell.
