[torqueusers] web-based/graphical monitoring tool for torque

Hi all,

I want to make clear, that the whole source code of the web interface is
still open! We just had to rename it, because Altair let us know, that it is
not allowed to use the substring "PBS". We didn't commercialize it! We just
offer installation service, and support (if you want!).

Furthermore, we completely rewrote the code. Yes, we started from myPBS, and
we explicitly appreciate the work of the authors of myPBS! Every file of
<myJAM/> starts with the GPL header and we always name myPBS as the ancestor
of <myJAM/>.

I hope, I could clarify the situation. If there are more questions about
that, please don't hesitate to post them.
