After some internal discussion, we've decided to release all of our SGE
integration packages under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).
The VDT maintainers are welcome to include our software in their

No, I'm afraid it doesn't -- I only found saw that announcement after
our codebase was frozen for release.  However, if the developers have no
objection, I would like to review their improvements and incorporate
them into our main packages.

Would this be okay?  Feel free to contact me off-list.

It's possible, but that decision is up to the Globus developers.  I
mailed Ian with the original release announcement so they definitely
know that the packages exist, but we'll have to wait and see if they add
it to their distribution.
