  Description     : GNU R tools for computation on batch systems
 As a successor of the packages 'BatchJobs' and 'BatchExperiments',
 this package provides a parallel implementation of the Map function for
 high performance computing systems managed by schedulers IBM Spectrum LSF
 OpenLava, Univa Grid Engine/Oracle Grid Engine, Slurm, TORQUE/PBS, or
 Docker Swarm.
 A multicore and socket mode allow the parallelization on a local machines,
 and multiple machines can be hooked up via SSH to create a makeshift
 cluster. Moreover, the package provides an abstraction mechanism to define
 large-scale computer experiments in a well-organized and reproducible way.

Remark:  This package is a precondition to fix bug #882371.  It will be
maintained by the R pkg team at
