Subject: Re: [Xgrid] Proposal: Parallel Parameter Sweeps on Grids
I just received word that Google has accepted my Summer of Code
application for GridSweeper--thanks much to those of you that gave me
feedback on the outline.
For those of you that are interested, I'll be tracking the project's
development on a blog, bug-tracker, and Subversion repository hosted
I'll certainly bring thoughts about the Xgrid/DRMAA component of the
project back here soon.
