to my understanding, gridengine.org is an independent open
organization which is just sponsored by Sun, so Sun licenses
should not apply here. Since there are SGE binaries from Sun
and different GE courtesy binaries, I conclude that the one
is the Sun version with real money to pay (for, maybe, enhanced
functionality), and the other is the gridengine.org version
(whatever license that has) where someone who knows has to
clarify if and what is to pay (and who is the receiver of that

Correct me if I'm wrong.
