Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Question about scheduler support

Hi Gus,
Oh, I know that, what I am refering to is that slurm and loadleveler
support are enabled by default, and it seems that if we're using
Torque/Moab, we have no use for slurm and loadleveler support.

My point is not that it is hard to compile it with torque support, my
point is that it is compiling support for many schedulers while I'm
rather convinced that very few sites actually use multiple schedulers at
the same time.
