Line 101 - Use term "process" for instances of the executable in a 
parallel job

Page 14 - no use case for "comment" attribute from SAGA perspective, no 
support in Grid Engine

Line 381 - Caching behavior for job information completely unspecified, 
could be non-existent for distributed DRM systems; reformulate to make 
no promises on JobInfo availability in terminal states

Line 729 - Discussion to either remove maxSlots or make it optional; 
expected use cases are billing limitations and parallel job scalability 
considerations - serious enough to make it an optional attribute; if not 
supported, maxSlots should be assumed to be equal to minSlots.

Line 769 - VIRTUAL_MEMORY violation should lead to job FAILURE state.

Page 26 - Discussion about accumulated resource limits in case of 
parallel jobs (e.g. CPU_TIME); semantics are completely 
implementation-specific, state like this

- Proposal for DRMAA F2F meeting in Potsdam, Peter sets up Doodle poll
