FYI ... might be of interest to those tying multiple clusters together.

Subject: [Globus-discuss] CSF project on SourceForge

I'd like to announce a new SourceForge site for the Community Scheduler
Framework. The project description:

"The Community Scheduler Framework (CSF) is a set of Grid Services,
implemented using the Globus Toolkit 3.x, which provides an environment for
the development of metaschedulers that can dispatch jobs to resource
managers such as LSF, SGE or PBS."

The project site is at http://sourceforge.net/projects/gcsf

Currently the site is a little thin on documentation and web pages, etc, but
most importantly there is a developer's mailing list (gcsf-devel) and the
current source code for CSF in the project CVS repository. The source code
is the same as that released by Platform last December/January, with the
following changes:

- RM adapter code (factory and base classes) is now available in source
form. All Platform proprietary stuff is not part of the code.

- An RM adapter which can send jobs to GT2 GRAM

I'd encourage anybody who is interested in writing grid or meta schedulers
to take a look and get involved.
