SGE Users -

hello - newbie alert - I'm just coming up to speed on a SGE installation
that predates me (ie, I moved to a group that uses SGE, but I'm just
learning it).

So I have a couple of basic questions - hopefully this is an appropriate
place to ask them, as I couldn't find a "better" mailing list....

TIA for any help and direction !

1 - we're running 6.0u5, and I will be updating to a newer version once
     I get up to speed on the system. I see there's a 6.1u5, and also
     a 6.2. While my inclination is to stick with the 6.1 line of code,
     I'm wondering if anyone knows what the future of 6.1 is - will
     there be more updates to it, or will all future work and releases
     go into 6.2 ?  (ie, is there enough of a difference in the feature
     and code base between 6.1.x and 6.2.x that both will be "supported" ?)

2 - speaking of support, I thought I had heard somewhere that Sun will
     provide support for SGE for a charge - is that the case ?  If so,
     is this the product they support, or do they have their own
     distribution that they support ?

3 - Besides the manuals, I've found some good info at
     http://wikis.sun.com/display/GridEngine/Grid+Engine -- any recommendations
     for other good info sites ?


  Many Thanks !
