Are any of the free SGE derived projects still alive?  If so, buildable 
on Centos 7?

Son of grid engine, for instance, has not had a release since 2016


and there isn't one for Centos 7.  The last rocks release still has an 
option, and that is based on Centos 7, so some version can be built on 
that platform.  Anybody know off hand which one they used?

The Univa version still seems to be kicking, but that is commercial.

I have an old version running on one Centos 7 machine, but it was not 
built there.  It is a 32 binary made long ago (Mandriva 2010 or Mageia 
3?)  and still uses


to start/stop rather than a systemd method.
