[DRMAA-WG] A question regarding libdrmaa.so in DRMAA v1.x

That particular implementation is specific to Grid Engine.  Oracle took 
the Grid Engine source code closed source and then subsequently passed 
ownership of it to Univa.  Univa has thus far kept the source code 
closed, I believe.  There are a couple of forks of the Grid Engine code 
base, namely Son of Grid Engine and Open Grid Scheduler.  You can 
probably borrow the libdrmaa.so source code from one of those projects.
