    1818This effort precedes Univa taking over gridengine maintenance and
    19 taking it ‘open core’, but what's here is now nearly a superset
    20 of [https://github.com/gridengine Univa's free code].  Unfortunately
    21 Univa aren't accepting contributions, as originally envisaged, so this
    22 code base will doubtless diverge more, but is intended to be
    23 compatible.
     19subsequently apparently making it entirely proprietary, rather than the
     20originally-promised ‘open core’, but what's here is nearly a large superset
     21of [https://github.com/gridengine Univa's free code].
    2422See also the [http://gridengine.org gridengine.org site], in particular the
    2523[http://gridengine.org/mailman/listinfo/ mail lists] hosted there.
     
    2725discussions and questions which aren't specific to this project.

    29 Currently any information you find for the gridengine v6.2u5 release
     27Currently most information you find for the gridengine v6.2u5 release
    3028will apply to this effort, including the
    3129[http://wikis.sun.com/display/gridengine62u5/Home v6.2u5 wiki documentation]
     
    5452* 2011-02-04: The howtos from sunsource are online, see [#resources Other Resources].
    5553
    56 * 2011-01-28: There is a [http://gridengine.org new gridengine site].  It's currently unclear whether that will eventually make this one redundant.
    57 
    58 * 2011-01-18: Things will change following the [http://www.univa.com/about/news/press_2011/01172011.php announcement from Univa] about commercial support.  They're talking to people about re-establishing a single free software project and community, aiming to address issues with the former Sun project.  It's looking good.
    59 
    60 * 2011-01-12: There's now a partial [http://arc.liv.ac.uk/pipermail/gridengine-users/ archive] of the sunsource gridengine-users list (thanks to Mark Dixon), pending getting all the data from Oracle. It isn't yet indexed, and actually contains also more recent messages to the other old gridengine lists.  The Markmail archive referenced below is probably currently more useful if you can cope with the interface.
    61 
    62 * 2010-11-15: URLs of the form `http://arc.liv.ac.uk/repos/hg/`//repo// and `http://arc.liv.ac.uk/repos/git/`//repo// now work for hg and git respectively.
    63 
    64 * 2010-11-14: You can now access the repos with Mercurial (`hg`) at the same URLs as with `darcs`, e.g. {{{hg clone http://arc.liv.ac.uk/repos/darcs/sge/}}}.  (They should probably be aliased to avoid confusion.)  You can also pull with `git`, but the relevant URL is the darcs one with `/.git` appended, e.g. {{{git clone http://arc.liv.ac.uk/repos/darcs/sge/.git}}}.  Servers are not currently available for hg or git, so pulling may be relatively slow  Also note that pulls with git or hg leave scripts not executable — see the amended build instructions.
    65 
    66 * 2010-11-14: Most jar files have been expunged since several from the sunsource repository are copyleft, and can't be distributed as-were.  Since this involved re-writing history in the `arco` and `nbgui` repos, if you pulled from them, you'll need to do it again, unfortunately.
    67 
    68 * 2010-11-10: A general [#mail mail list] and bug-reporting by mail are available.

    9276The repositories are maintained under
    9377[http://darcs.net/ darcs],[[FootNote(Darcs is a nice distributed version control system, but doesn't currently scale so well with a repository of this size and age.  It's fine for looking at the change history and recording new changes, but currently slow at producing diffs for previous changes, for instance.)]]
    94 but are mirrored to Mercurial and git — see [#News News].
     78but are mirrored to Mercurial and git — see below.
    9579To clone the sge repo, get
    9680a [http://wiki.darcs.net/Binaries recent version of darcs] — at least
     
    11397[http://arc.liv.ac.uk/downloads/SGE snapshot directory], but
    11498snapshots currently aren't made automatically, so it may not be so up-to-date.

     100You can access the repos with Mercurial (`hg`) at the same URLs as with `darcs`, e.g. {{{hg clone http://arc.liv.ac.uk/repos/darcs/sge/}}}.  (They should probably be aliased to avoid confusion.)  You can also pull with `git`, but the relevant URL is the darcs one with `/.git` appended, e.g. {{{git clone http://arc.liv.ac.uk/repos/darcs/sge/.git}}}.  Servers aren't currently available for hg or git, so pulling may be relatively slow  Also note that pulls with git or hg leave scripts not executable — see the amended build instructions.

    220206relevant if we satisfy the publishing source provisions of §3.1, according to
    221207legal advice obtained by and relayed by Univa, so the original idea of a
    222 6.2u5 compatability mode has been dropped.
    223 
    224 Univa haven't said whether they have any relevant trademark interests,
     2086.2u5 compatibility mode has been dropped.
     209
     210Univa wouldn't say whether they have any relevant trademark interests,
    225211so care has been taken to avoid possible issues with that.
     212
     213Note that, contrary to what Univa have claimed, there is no evidence
     214that any Sun (or other) material here is being distributed without an
     215appropriate licence, let alone wilfully.  See the
     216[http://gridengine.org/pipermail/users/2011-November/001861.html rebuttal].
     217Reports of licensing bugs are very welcome, of course.
