    12 articles from the old gridengine-users list from the last five years
    13 or so will be available soon, and Oracle have promised to donate
    14 artifacts from the old site, so we should be able to get complete
    15 copies of everything.

     18This effort precedes Univa taking over gridengine maintenance and
     19taking it ‘open core’, but what's here is now nearly a superset
     20of [https://github.com/gridengine Univa's free code].  Unfortunately
     21Univa aren't accepting contributions, as originally envisaged, so this
     22code base will doubtless diverge more, but is intended to be
     23compatible.
     24See also the [http://gridengine.org gridengine.org site], in particular the
     25[http://gridengine.org/mailman/listinfo/ mail lists] hosted there.
     26The gridengine.org `users` list is probably the best one to use for general gridengine
     27discussions and questions which aren't specific to this project.

    2532and pointers therefrom, including the
    2633[http://gridengine.info gridengine.info site] and its
    27 [http://wiki.gridengine.info/wiki/index.php?Main_Page wiki].  There may
    28 eventually also be useful info at the

    30 You should note its
    31 [http://www.oracle.com/html/terms.html terms of use] before posting

     34[http://wiki.gridengine.info/wiki/index.php?Main_Page wiki].  The
     35intention is to convert the Sun wiki documentation into another format
     36and update that.

     46* 2011-07-26: There's a long-overdue [http://arc.liv.ac.uk/downloads/SGE/releases/8.0.0a/ release 8.0.0a], based on the 8.0.0 tag of Univa's github repo, and tagged 800a in the darcs repo.  See the [http://arc.liv.ac.uk/repos/darcs/sge/NEWS NEWS file] for information on changes.  Note that the spool format for this version has changed from previous test versions so that live upgrades from v6 installations work.  Binaries are available for a few platforms I have available.  Only the SGE component is currently there; ARCo and others should follow.
     47
    4148* 2011-03-17: Manpages and Javadocs are now online, as requested.  See [#resources Other Resources].
    4249
     
    5158* 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.
    5259
    53 * 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 mirroring currently isn't automatic, so the hg and git repos may be somewhat out-of-date.  Also note that pulls with git or hg leave scripts not executable — see the amended build instructions.
    54 
    55 * 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, unfortnuately.
     60* 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.

     62* 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.
    5663
    5764* 2010-11-10: A general [#mail mail list] and bug-reporting by mail are available.
     
    173180repositories have been mirrored completely, along with copies of all
    174181the items in the old issue tracker — ‘Issuezilla’, sometimes referred to
    175 as ‘IZ’, and the general material from the sunsource web site.  They
    176 will be put online eventually, if Oracle don't re-host them.  This is partly
    177 pending to see whether Oracle do the work and, otherwise, asking for the
    178 original data to minimize possible data loss from the archiving.
     182as ‘IZ’, and the general material from the sunsource web site.  Oracle promised to donate
     183artifacts from the old site, but it doesn't look as if we'll ever see those.  Most of the extra information is available via the page of [http://arc.liv.ac.uk/SGE/ extra information].
    179184
    180185The active IZ issues have been transferred
     
    211216The appendix to the SISSL requires a conformance test to use names
    212217like ‘Grid Engine’ for a modified version, but this appears not to be
    213 relevant if we satisfy the publishing source provisions of §3.1
     218relevant if we satisfy the publishing source provisions of §3.1.
     219
     220Univa haven't said whether they have any relevant trademark interests,
     221so care has been taken to avoid possible issues with that.

    217 There's another project,
     225As well as Univa's public repo, there's another project,

    240 * The [http://arc.liv.ac.uk/SGE/howto/howto.html howto] documents from sunsource are online, along with HTML-formatted [http://arc.liv.ac.uk/SGE/htmlman/manuals.html manpages] and [http://arc.liv.ac.uk/SGE/javadocs Javadocs].
     248* There's a page of [http://arc.liv.ac.uk/SGE/ extra information], including updated versions of the [http://arc.liv.ac.uk/SGE/howto/howto.html howto] documents from sunsource, HTML-formatted [http://arc.liv.ac.uk/SGE/htmlman/manuals.html manpages], and [http://arc.liv.ac.uk/SGE/javadocs Javadocs].
     249
     250* Oracle have a [http://forums.oracle.com/forums/forum.jspa?forumID=859 Oracle Grid Engine Forum], but it's presumably specific to Oracle's version, and users@gridengine.org is likely to be at least as helpful; also you might want to note the [http://www.oracle.com/html/terms.html terms of use] before posting in that forum.
