Patch description from VDT:
Add configuration knob to gatekeeper to control whether it forks before
starting a jobmanager or not. This allows admins to use xinetd to limit the
number of running jobmanagers. By default, Globus's behavior has not been
changed, but will only change if the configuration is changed.
Adds a new gatekeeper parameter:
-launch_method fork_and_exit | fork_and_wait | dont_fork
The patches for these are committed to 4.2 branch and trunk.
