I've come across the External reference from Rel 2.2 by MRJ to the
release of PBSPro v5.4. Is there a doc that shows the development time
line and forks of PBS? I've got torque1.2.0p2 on a cluster & I'm trying
to pull the correct documents together for it other than what was in the
tar ball. Thanks! -paul van allsburg
