  Description     : parallel queued computation with no configuration

  ruby queue (rq) is a zero-admin zero-configuration tool used to create instant
  unix clusters.  rq requires only a central nfs filesystem in order to manage a
  simple sqlite database as a distributed priority work queue.  this simple
  design allows researchers with minimal unix experience to install and
  configure, in only a few minutes and without root privileges, a robust unix
  cluster capable of distributing processes to many nodes - bringing dozens of
  powerful cpus to their knees with a single blow.  clearly this software should
  be kept out of the hands of free radicals, seti enthusiasts, and one mr. j
  safran.

  the central concept of rq is that n nodes work in isolation to pull jobs
  from an centrally mounted nfs priority work queue in a synchronized fashion.
  the nodes have absolutely no knowledge of each other and all communication
  is done via the queue meaning that, so long as the queue is available via
  nfs and a single node is running jobs from it, the system will continue to
  process jobs.  there is no centralized process whatsoever - all nodes work
  to take jobs from the queue and run them as fast as possible.  this creates
  a system which load balances automatically and is robust in face of node
  failures.

  although the rq system is simple in it's design it features powerful
  functionality such as priority management, predicate and sql query , compact
  streaming command-line processing, programmable api, hot-backup, and
  input/capture of the stdin/stdout/stderr io streams of remote jobs.  to date
  rq has had no reported runtime failures and is in operation at dozens of
  research centers around the world.

The packaging is mostly complete and will soon hit the archive.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of rq back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting rq, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 611863 ITP: rq -- parallel queued computation with no configuration
 owner 611863 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <611863@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
