I want to comment the qsub "-tc" wording:

   -tc max_running_tasks
          -allow users to limit concurrent array job task  execu-
          tion.  Parameter  max_running_tasks  specifies  maximum
          number of simultaneously running tasks.  For example we
          have  running  SGE  with 10 free slots. We call qsub -t
          1-100 -tc 2  jobscript.  Then  only  2  tasks  will  be
          scheduled to run even when 8 slots are free.

The "-allow" is a formatting error/typo.

The tone with "we" is not a good style for a man page. Even if we are not
native speakers this could have been discovered I think. Please take also
such tiny changes and the review process seriously as well.

Please create a CR and rquest a better wording. My suggestion is:

  -tc max_running_tasks
   Available for qsub and qalter only.

   Can be used in conjunction with array jobs (see -t option) to set a
   self-imposed limit on the maximum number of concurrently running tasks
   per job.
