First let me say that fair share never limits resource usage. It only
tries to balance out usage by sorting the pending queue.

With the assumption that you don't want the cluster to be partially
unused, you also have contradicting goals by asking for different
allocations regarding projects (70:30) and users (8:1).

You can probably define such hard constraints using resource quotas.
But again, this will leave part of the cluster unused.
