If oracle releases OGE source code, then we won't need the Open Grid
Scheduler project.

The whole point of creating Open Grid Scheduler is to develop &
maintain a free implementation of Grid Engine.

Right. We waited for 9 months and Oracle did not put back any changes
to the open source project on sunsource. So instead of waiting for a
real answer, which might never happen, we decided to fork SGE 2 months
ago so that we can address the 4GB memory accounting bug & the
preemption bug in SGE 6.2u5.
