I just pulled down the torque 2.4.2.tar.gz to work on the bug that Glen
mentioned regarding mpiexec. The first thing I notice is that there is a new
pbs_mom script that errors as follows:
[root at goldstar torque]# /etc/init.d/pbs_mom status
/etc/init.d/pbs_mom: line 26: syntax error near unexpected token `fi'
/etc/init.d/pbs_mom: line 26: `fi'
Basically the patch for the fix looks something like this:
--- /etc/init.d/pbs_mom.orig 2009-11-30 22:08:46.000000000 -0800
+++ /etc/init.d/pbs_mom 2009-11-30 22:08:50.000000000 -0800

Now while I haven't checked to see if this is fixed in the 2.4-fixes branch,
this is pretty embarrassing that it was release this glaringly obviously broken.
If its already fixed, then its not a problem, if not, I'm surprised nobody has
caught it, or mentioned it yet. Either way its still silly not to catch
something like this.
Is there some sort of test plan that is in place for testing TORQUE before its
