[Mauiusers] why job age in minutes?

Does anyone know if there was any particular reason to round the age of a
job in a queue (QUEUETIMEWEIGHT) down to a minute? Some folks here want to
have a strict FIFO, so it would be nice if jobs aged in seconds instead.


I found this in moab/MPriority.c (line 1069, function MJobGetStartPriority):


  /* queue time factor (in minutes) */


  SFactor[mpsSQT] = MAX(0.0,(double)((long)MSched.Time - EffQTime) / 60.0);


Any consequences, which are not obvious to me, if I just removed the
division by 60.0?


Thanks a lot.
