Re: Plugins Question - Skipping SGE Install

Hi Austin,

Following up on this, I just added a disable_queue option to the config
and also a --disable-queue flag to the 'start' command in the latest
github code. With these options you can either:

1. Disable SGE for a given template in the config:

[cluster smallcluster]

This will disable SGE for any cluster using the 'smallcluster' template.

2. Disable SGE for a given cluster at start time:

$ starcluster start --disable-queue mycluster
