What is the purpose of the LSF Utils Support?

The LSF Utils Support Unit (SU) is a 3rd level SU, about integrating LSF with the rest of the grid m/w (glite, EMI). The supporters act on a best-effort basis, after GGUS ticket filtering by the TPM (1st level) and the DMSU (2nd level). It provides support for usage of LSF from the Grid. The LSF SU will not build and package new releases of LSF nor will it fix bugs in LSF. The LSF SU will not provide support for LSF: it will only address problems concerning the integration between LSF and the CREAM CE
