Where BProc relly lives

I was quite surprised to find out that BProc lives at:


and is active and maintained and has docs and maillist etc. On the
other hand, assumption that Scyld website will be the first place
which will point me to BProc news was quite false.

BProc seemes to be mostly one-man-show by Erik Arjan Hendriks and he
is not working for Scyld anymore and might not be on good terms
with Scyld management. Sorry to touch these personal things but I
think they have large technical implications and therefore should be
known to cluster developers.

BProc is GPL project and is used by several independent groups
now. Good. Please help me to make the picture clear by completing the
list. So far I know these projects using BProc:

1) Scyld Beowulf, of course


2) LANL Clustermatic (where Erik's most recent email is)


3) Clubmask and Maui


If you know others, please let me know.

My apologies to anybody offended by this message, especially to Scyld
and Erik Hendriks. Please correct any false statements I made -
Internet was my only information source. The picture I made from
various small pieces was quite big surprise for me, so I had to post

(Sorry for this non-technical entry on bproc-users, I hope I'll be
less off-topic next time.)

Best Regards
