     49  Note that this changes the communication protocol due to the MUNGE support, and really should
     50  have been labelled 8.2 in hindsight — ensure you close down execds
     51  before upgrading.
    4753* 2014-11-03: Version 8.1.8 [ available].
    6773  packaging for Debian (as opposed to the standalone packaging now in
    6874  the `sge` repository).
    70 * 2012-08-28: Version 8.1.2
    71   [ available], mainly fixing a regression in 8.1.1 and providing Linux cpuset-based containment ([ NEWS]).
    73 * 2012-07-17: Version 8.1.1 [ available] with many [ changes] and extra binaries for Cygwin (only client programs currently usable).
    75 * 2012-06-10: Version 8.1.0 [ available], with a few stability [ fixes over 8.0.0e and better RPM packaging] as well as adopting different versioning.

     140There is currently a git mirror of the repos at

    230233== Copyright and Naming ==
     235The name ‘Son of Grid Engine’ was chosen for several reasons:
     236* Legal concerns originally over the licence terms with respect to naming (see below);
     237* The need for a hacker-style punny name as for [ GNU] and several of its
     238  re-implementations (with GNU as a precedent for the first point);
     239* Ability to retain ‘SGE’ as an abbreviation by dropping of an
     240  insignificant word.
    232242The Sunsource material has been copied according to the original [ sunsource terms].
    233243Material here has an explicit or implicit copyright under the same

     274As well as Univa's now-dead public repo, there was another project,
    265275[ Open Grid Scheduler],
    266 or ‘gridscheduler’, which is also continuing work on gridengine but has
    267 different aims.  Unlike this one, its repository doesn't use a distributed
    268 revision control system, doesn't include history from
    269 before the gridengine v6.2u5 release, existing issues, or sources from outside the gridengine repository.  It would
    270 be better if there was only one project but, unfortunately, there now
    271 seems no prospect of that.
    273 The `sge` source here is essentially a large superset of
    274 OGS's 6.2u5 releases and will probably acquire the functionality added
    275 in their GE2011.11 release when there's time to merge it.
     276or ‘gridscheduler’, which unfortunately wasn't interested in community
     277cooperation and is apparently also dead.  This is a superset of their
     278functionality, though the code may be different in parts,
     279e.g. more-or-less cosmetic differences in OGS and stripping of
     280Univa-specific stuff.
