SDM stands for "Service Domain Manager" which is currently bundled with 
Sun Gridengine and is supported by Sun Microsystems.
Hedeby is just a project codename for SDM - thus you can download 
sources from hedeby.sunsource.net, built it on your own but there is no 
support offered from Sun.

The software is eventually useful without gridengine (there is API to 
extend to functionality beyond Gridengine integration) but currently we 
offer out-of-box only integration with Gridengine.
If you want to port packages to Fedora, each official SDM release 
contains RPM packages so maybe they will save you some time (current 
version of SDM is 1.0u2, 1.0u3 is planned for release in near future).
Regarding names, both "gridengine-sdm" or "sdm" sounds reasonable.
