                &gt;&gt; "Today, we are entering a new chapter in Oracle
                Grid Engine’s life.<br>
                &gt;&gt; Oracle has been working with key members of the
                open source community to<br>
                &gt;&gt; pass on the torch for maintaining the open
                source code base to the Open<br>
                &gt;&gt; Grid Scheduler project hosted on SourceForge.
                This transition will allow<br>
                &gt;&gt; the Oracle Grid Engine engineering team to
                focus their efforts more<br>
                &gt;&gt; directly on enhancing the product.  In a matter
                of days, we will take<br>
                &gt;&gt; definitive steps in order to roll out this
                transition.  To ensure<br>
                &gt;&gt; on-going communication with the open source
                community, we will provide<br>
                &gt;&gt; the following services:<br>

                on December 31st, 2010, we will begin<br>
                &gt;&gt; to transition the information on the open
