It's great that there seems to be enthusiasm for this.
(BTW, Afif is the one who maintains the Debian packaging of GridEngin).

As far as I can tell,
would probably be the natural repo to use as the jumping-off point for
the project.

Afif, are you aware of any more downstream repos, e.g. any repo that
you use to maintain the Debian package?  Or would it be more natural
to clone Dave Love's repo and apply any patches that you maintain to
it, where appropriate?

RE the name-- if we used the same name and the U. of Liverpool people
were to become active again, or notice the duplication, I'm concerned
that there might be confusion.  (Plus, a unique name is easier for
google-search purposes, so there is no confusion about the location of
the project).  I'd rather only use the same name with Dave Love's
blessing, but that is depenent on being able to contact him.  However,
if most others want to to keep the same name, I'd be OK with it.
