[Mauiusers] PBS Python Bindings

 Yup, you are right it should be in the torque list. I apologize ;)
 As for the other questions:
  - Yes, it has been available for a year and I have been contacted about
it. But
     unfortunately, I'm pressed for time and cannot devote much time on it.
 - Long time ago, we had used this as the backbone for building our PBS
    (scheduler, full command suite etc..), obviously these are generally
very specific to
    the requirements  of a data-center. But, I don't mind sharing the ideas.
- Most of the python bindings that were available at the time were SWIG
  The nice thing about these bindings, they are natively implemented as
though they are
  "built-in" python types, so the syntax is very pythonic.

Sorry, apologize again, this was the wrong mailing list...

Why do you write about it on the Maui users' list and not on the 
Torque one ?

I can see that this was available for more than a year - any reason 
for writing about it only now ?

IMHO it would be more interesting to make these public rather than 
just saying that they could be done.

It seems to me like Maui doesn't have anything to do it, or am I wrong ?

What are the main differences between it and the SARA pbs_python 
package (which exists for a number of years) ?

Are these bindings for Torque or for Maui ?
